Although I am very happy for the bride and groom, I can not say I have faithfully followed the news of the royal wedding. Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle seem to be the talk of nations, it is the perks of being royalty.
Maybe I should not feel this way, but when I see extravagant gatherings it grieves me. since there are so many poor that could be helped with all the money spent on an event. It has been said, today’s wedding held at Windsor Castle will exceed £32million. This does not include a bottle of 10,000 dollar whisky, created by Royal Salute, in honor of the Prince and his bride. It was an exquisite gift, being limited edition crafted in American oak casks. I cringe at the thought of 10,000 dollars being filtered through their kidneys!.
I am sure this will a day the world will remember. I was delighted to see that Prince Harry and Meghan, requested that wedding gifts be made in the form of contributions to selected charity’s. This was the icing on the lemon and Elderflower cake for me!
I pray God will bless their beautiful union, as I await my royal wedding. It has been paid in full, and until that day I strive to keep my garment from spots or wrinkles, and oil in my lamp. ~Matthew 25:6~ 🙂
