An Unknown Artist Gives the Royal Family a Heart Touching Gift

By Christopher Paul, 4 June 2018


The Royal wedding of the 33 year- old Prince Harry and Meghan Markle who is 36 years of age, took place on the 19 of May 2018. The beautiful ceremony was held at the St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle in the United Kingdom. They were the 16th royal couple to have their marriage take place at the Windsor Castle.

The beautiful wedding was highly publicized and broadcast live on national and international TV. Another reason for the high publicity for the wedding, apart from this being a royal family wedding was that it took place on a Saturday. It has been known that the weddings in the royal family usually take place on a weekday. The wedding had around 600 guests among whom were quite a few famous celebrities and many government officials. The likes of Idris Elba, Tom Hardy, Carey Mulligan, George and Amal Clooney were seen at the wedding.

During any special event, we want everyone in our family to be in attendance. An event like a wedding, something so important for the entire family would naturally merit the attention of all members of the family. The one person who wasn’t going to be attending the wedding was the mother of the Duke of Sussex, Princess Diana.
