~Meghan Markle wearing Welsh gold wedding ring~

May 19, 2018
… on their third wedding anniversary …

Why is Welsh gold used for royal wedding rings?
The custom of using Welsh gold for wedding rings was started by the Queen Mother in 1923.

Welsh gold has been used for royal brides ever since.

The Queen Mother’s wedding ring, the Queen’s in 1947, Princess Margaret’s in 1960, the Princess Royal’s in 1973 and that of Diana, Princess of Wales in 1981 were all made from the same nugget.

The gold came from the Clogau St David’s mine at Bontddu in North Wales.

ROYAL WEDDING

I’m still in that mood.

Anything to take me away from ugly realities of the world we live in. It’s been almost three weeks and I’m still sharing their glow.

Always learning about more details.

Here are a couple more.

Please, humor me!

You may be wondering why this photograph, where you can’t even see the couple’s faces, is so great.

The bird’s eye view shot gained popularity after the wedding for two reasons:

First, if you look at the photo, you may be able to notice how their bodies create the shape of a heart. Aww, could it get more romantic than that?
Second, people are also referring to it as the “Diana’s View” photograph, as some saw the picture and imagined that this might be the view Diana would have of her son’s special day.’

THE ROYAL WEDDING

I was away from home on May 19, 2018.

I missed watching the royal wedding in real time.

My personal tradition has been to get up early and watch every bit of it.

I’ve been catching up with the DVR’d programs.

Watch cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason’s amazing performance!

Cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason becomes breakout star after royal wedding performance

England may have a new duke and duchess in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, but in the process, classical music also got a new star.

Sheku Kanneh-Mason, a 19-year-old cellist from Nottingham, captivated the congregation and everyone watching the royal wedding, his music filling St. George’s Chapel. As for Sheku himself, he can be as quiet as a church mouse.

“To perform at anyone’s wedding is such an honor, but a wedding of that much significance is just so exciting,” he said.

Sheku has been playing since he was 6. His parents Stuart Mason and Kadie Kanneh say it was love at first sight.

“And as soon as he got a cello, that was it. We couldn’t get him off it,” Kadie said.

He has a nearly priceless Amati cello that’s more than 400 years old and is never out of his sight. Well, almost never.

“I wouldn’t take it out at night,” he said, laughing. “No, I leave it, I leave it in my room … It’s not that extreme.”

He’s studying at the Royal Academy of Music in London on a full scholarship, along with his older siblings. In fact, every one of Sheku’s six brothers and sisters have spent their life playing classical music.

THE ROYAL WEDDING

I was away from home on May 19, 2018.

I missed watching the royal wedding in real time.

My personal tradition has been to get up early and watch every bit of it.

I do have it recorded.

I’ve been catching up!

Here’s the surprising performance of this classic song by a UK gospel choir.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the newly named Duke and Duchess of Sussex, surprised their guests with a gospel choir doing a powerful rendition of “Stand By Me” during the royal wedding at Windsor Castle on Saturday, May 19, 2018.
The song is a significant choice.

First recorded by Ben E. King and released in 1961, it became an anthem for political progress and has been heard at many a black church service.
Karen Gibson and the Kingdom Choir, a London-based gospel choir, performed the song for the couple from the west end of St. George’s Chapel at the castle.

I missed watching the royal wedding in real time. I managed to watch parts of it. I saw the Queen arrive, I saw Meghan and Doria arrive. I saw the ceremony, the choir (Stand By Me), the viola player.

My personal tradition has been to get up early and watch every bit of it.

I do have it recorded.
