What an incredible day!! Congratulations to Harry and Meghan the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex. She was of course stunning, he was head over heels in love and adorable, the venue was gorgeous, the guest list star studded and the combination of British and American cultures was at times brilliant and at others just hilarious! But can we also pay tribute to the incredibly strong Mothers we witnessed at this wedding. From HRH The Queen, rocking lime green at age 92 while presiding over one of the biggest shake ups the British Monarchy has possibly ever seen, to The Duchess of Cambridge looking simply stunning only weeks after giving birth to her third child and that in an outfit she’s already worn to two big public occasions while managing the cutest little page boy and bridesmaid; to Doria sitting alone in that pew so composed and proud watching the daughter she raised to be everything she is marrying her prince; and of course the mother that wasn’t there in person but was so much of the reason anyone was there at all, having raised these boys with her same open heart, strength and compassion, not there in person no, but remembered in so many ways - the empty seat on the front row, the bouquet of her favourite flowers, the choice of hymns, was there anyone watching today not thinking of Diana? How proud she would have been and how proud we all are. Wishing the newlyweds a lifetime of happiness, can’t wait to see what a force for good these two combined are going to be!
