The Royal Wedding… Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have officially tied the knot and I couldn’t be happier for them. I love love in general, but these two in particular give me the warm fuzzies because they’re so freaking cute and have dealt with so much to get to this point. They truly deserve their happiness. Also, there are legit lessons any single person can learn about love from this beautiful marriage. Here they are.
Blind dates work
Here’s a fun fact: Meghan and Harry met on a blind date. Rumor has it that Misha Nonoo, an amazing designer, set them up. A successful blind date story is music to my ears and this one’s beyond fairy tale material. I mean, to go into a date without knowing who the person is and it turns out to be Prince Harry? Come on! While Prince Harry certainly isn’t going to be waiting for you on your next blind date, your personal prince or princess could be. Blind dates can work, but you have to give them a chance. So, never say no to a blind date. You could be meeting your husband or wife.
Meant to be isn’t obvious
Looking at how in love Meghan and Harry are, it’s hard to remember that they’re actually a total mismatch. He’s a royal, she’s a commoner. And an American at that! Plus, she had a successful career as an actress, which isn’t usual for a bride of a British prince. And she’s black, which is a first for marrying into the Royal Family. On the surface, they’re not an obvious couple. But, it’s clear that on a deeper level, this relationship was truly meant to be. They’re so in love and so happy. It just goes to show you that you never know who you’re meant to be with. Give everyone at least a chance. You may be surprised in the very best way.
Love is always worth celebrating
I was out the morning after the wedding and there was coverage of the big day everywhere. Even though I’d watched the wedding, I still couldn’t keep my eyes off the replay. I was watching and I heard this guy walking by say, “What’s the big deal? They’re never going to be King and Queen!” It took every ounce of self-control in me not to give him a piece of my mind. This celebration isn’t about the throne – it’s about love! All of those people out in the streets and glued to their televisions around the world weren’t watching because they thought those two would one day have positions of power and influence. We’re into the Royal Wedding because we want to celebrate love. It’s the same reason I’m so into every other wedding I go to. It’s not about what the couple is going to achieve professionally or financially. It’s a couple I love who are in love! What could be better? And sure, most of us don’t know Meghan and Harry, so we don’t love them in the same way we love our friends and family. But, we love their love story. Love always deserves a celebration and Harry and Meghan’s love totally got the celebration it deserved.
After watching all of this Royal Wedding coverage, I honestly think the next Millionaire Matchmaker office I open will be in London. There were so many tall and handsome men over there. And I’m going to have a lot of fun with those dreamy accents! Get ready UK singles!
