With all the buzz about the upcoming royal wedding, I can’t help feeling that something is missing. Although, flowers have been delivered, the bride’s dress is awaiting her, the horses are practicing their parade route, security is in place, and the media has taken over the town, I still feel something is missing.
The female guests are donning their expensive designer hats and sipping champagne. The men have been fitted for their long coat tuxedos. The flower girls have been selected carefully and have practiced their duties of dropping the pedals. There’s still something missing.
Meghan’s dad can’t attend due to his health, so her future father-in-law, Prince Charles will walk her down the aisle. Her dad will be there in spirit, I’m sure. But it’s a loss, nonetheless and still something more is missing.
The sheer magnitude of marrying into royalty would send me into fits of anxiety. Knowing that thousands of people from the town are cheering that their beloved prince has found his bride, brings a tear to my eyes. Realizing that people are watching every step, facial expression, and move, all over the world is a frightening thought. The couple deserves some private, intimate time to celebrate their new life beginning. Maybe that’s what missing? No, it’s something more.
I feel it deeply and it makes me sad. There is a huge hole in all the beautiful ceremonial plans. It brings tears to my eyes. There’s something missing that is so obvious behind all the glamour
What is missing is the presence of Meghan’s future mother-in-law, Princess Diana. I imagine she would be very calming to Meghan. She didn’t come from royalty either. I imagine the two women gabbing in the castle kitchen into the wee hours of the night. I imagine a mutual friendship that would be immediate. She’d charm Meghan with stories of her memories of becoming a bride. Naturally, the stories would surface about Harry as a child. Laughter would fill the room.
With all the ceremonial grandness I’m betting both Harry and Meghan would trade it all just to have Diana there.
I’ll be watching closely for an Angel Bump today, although I’m sure Diana’s would come I the quiet of the castle walls, when the couple is alone. Then again, she could surprise us all! It would be a beautiful “Hello From Heaven” to the people of England, and the world, who loved her so much. One thing is for sure…she’d never miss Harry’s wedding. Surely, there’s a celebration in Heaven as she watches her son and new daughter-in-law marry.
Everything is perfect. Nothing is missing after all.
