What a wonderful day to be British! ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

The Duke & Duchess of Sussex on their wedding day

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex on their wedding day — May 19, 2018 in Windsor, England

It was a real privilege to be back in England to experience the euphoria, warmth and spectacle of the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markleโ€ฆ

In world riven with so much conflict, hatred and sorrow, it was wonderful to take a moment to share in the happiness of a beautiful couple so obviously in love, a nation so clearly delighted for them and to reflect on how special it is to be British. It was a reminder that love conquers all and that family is the most important thing in life.

Watching the genuine affection between Harry and Meghan, and observing the fairytale wedding of a mixed-race American girl from Los Angeles who has become a princess moved meโ€ฆ

Very few nations enjoy the benefits of the unifying, non-political leadership that our monarchy brings, and on days like this when millions of people around the country paused to celebrate and seemed so genuinely happy, it was a reminder of just how special an institution the Royal Family is.

Watching Prince Harry marry his beautiful, American bride before an audience of over a billion people around the world, serenaded by both traditional British wedding music and the wondrous sound of a gospel choir reminded me of our countryโ€™s incredible history and diversity โ€” and why I love the Royals!

I have always felt a special connection to the Royal Family, due to the strong influence of my fiercely Royalist mother, and today was particularly special, watching a young lady of color and an American marry into the First Family.

I wish the Duke and Duchess of Sussex every happiness for the future; welcome to the [British] family, Lady Meghan!
