Today we celebrate an important marriage alliance between two great nations, one that has been ostracized from the EU due to Brexit and another that has been ostracized from the entire world due to Donald Trump. Did anyone else foolishly wake up at the crack of dawn to watch?

Random thoughts: I thought Meghan’s makeup was on point and I loved the elegant simplicity of her dress and veil. The queen looked great in her lime-green outfit, but I was slightly disappointed that no one wore an especially silly hat. The gospel choir and the (19-year old!) cellist were lovely. Finally, Meghan’s mom tearing up was so sweet and made me get all teary- eyed as well.
