WINDSOR RETURNS TO NORMALITY AFTER THE ROYAL WEDDING

London / Today, normality has returned to settle in the streets of the town of Windsor, west of London, where yesterday more than 100,000 people gathered to follow the wedding of Prince Harry and the American Meghan Markle.

There are few signs of the celebrations which was held yesterday in this small town of 30,000 inhabitants, although the multiple British flags hung on the street lamps for the occasion still wave.

After saying the “yes, I want” in the chapel of St. George, the newly appointed dukes of Sussex by Queen Elizabeth II made a tour in a float uncovered by the streets of the town to the delight of those present, many of them camped for days to not miss the moment.

It seems that the followers did not throw confetti, as had been previously requested to facilitate the cleaning work afterwards, and the area has been quickly conditioned.

Prince Harry and the Meghan Markle were married yesterday before 2,640 guests, 1,200 of whom were “ordinary citizens” from “all corners of the United Kingdom and who were able to follow the religious ceremony from giant screens located in the castle gardens of Windsor.

The newlyweds offered after the wedding a reception for 600 guests at St. George’s hall of the castle and, later, a more intimate one for 200 “chosen ones” in the Frogmore House.

The wedding of the grandson of Queen Elizabeth II of England and sixth in the line of succession to the British throne with the American caused great excitement worldwide, with nearly 5,000 journalists and some 80 international media accredited to follow the wedding from the Windsor.

The British singer Elton John sang at the reception after the wedding on which two aspects most commented were the sermon offered by Michael Curry and the gospel choir The Kingdom Choir.

Curry, the primate of the Episcopal Church in the United States, who in 2015 became his first African-American bishop, delivered a passionate speech on the force of love in which he even affirmed: “If governments will be guided by love, no child would go to bed hungry no more. “

The choir of gospel The Kingdom Choir sang in San Jorge’s chapel during the ceremony the well-known song “Stand by me by the African-American singer Ben E. King.

Finally, before the newlyweds left the chapel by the hand and kissed before the cheers of the crowd that crowded the doors of the temple guests and partners listened to 19-years-old-violinist Sheku Kanneh-Mason.(May 21, 2018, EFE/Practica Español)
