Royal Wedding Spring Fever & Giveaway

by Madelle Morgan

Royal weddings are so romantic

If you’re a royal romantic, you’ll want the scoop on all the details—the dresses, who’ll be in the wedding party, the cake, the flowers… 

Click to see a slideshow of royal engagement and wedding rings.

The British royal family will host two weddings in 2018.

Princess Eugenie and Jack

Queen Elizabeth’s granddaughter Princess Eugenie became engaged to longtime boyfriend James (Jack) Brooksbank in January 2018.

Princess Eugenie, the daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, is of course Prince William and Prince Harry's younger cousin. She works at an art gallery and Jack is in the hospitality business.

Although he’s a commoner, Jack is actually distantly related to his future bride. Find out more about Jack here and here. The marriage will take place in October.

Prince William and Kate

Prince William married Catherine in a spring wedding in 2011 and now they have three beautiful children. This photo of a painted wood tulip was taken at Ottawa’s annual May tulip festival a few years ago.

Prince Harry and Meghan

On May 19, 2018 it’s Prince Harry’s turn to take a bride, an American actor! Like Kate, Meghan Markle doesn’t come from royalty, not even Hollywood royalty. Meghan's dad was a lighting director for Hollywood television productions. She started at the bottom of the Hollywood ladder of success like anyone else.

Between early acting gigs Meghan supported herself as a freelance calligrapher. Check out her beautiful signature on the right of the screen here. It’s going to look spectacular on all those royal documents.

Prior to becoming the most envied girl in the world as the love of Prince Harry’s life, Meghan was best known for her role in the American legal drama television series Suits. While living in Toronto, Canada during filming, she met her future husband on a blind date.

After their marriage, the newest member of the British royal family will devote her time to humanitarian work at Prince Harry’s side. Fortunately Meghan is used to being in front of cameras, because that’s what’s in store for life.

Loved your post, Madelle! Royal weddings always seem like fairytale endings to love stories. I truly wish for happiness for both British Royal couples getting married this year. They face unique challenges the rest of us can only imagine.

Madelle Morgan said...

I totally agree, Sarah. These couples will work very hard in the public eye for the rest of their lives. I'm glad they found their perfect mates and I too wish them happiness and many adorable babies :)

Great Blog post! I've been a royal watcher ever since Diana and Charles tied the knot. That was the first one I watched on tv. Great post!

Thanks for the links! I'm not sure I'll be up at the crack of dawn on May 19th (time difference from west coast USA to England) but I'll watch whatever coverage there is. I was old enough to see pictures of Elizabeth and Phillip's wedding and her coronation on the newsreels as we didn't have a t.v. at that time. I do think that Meghan Markle is a good match for Prince Harry in part because she will not be overwhelmed by the media attention. And although I didn't know Eugenie was marrying this fall, I also wish her and her Jack well.

I didn't know about Eugenie and Jack--what a lovely engagement story! Thanks for the fun post, Madelle!
