Why Prince Harry and Megan are getting married so fast

St George's Chapel

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement!!! Oh Yes!! Who doesn’t love a fairytale story, an American Princess after all these years. I can’t wait!

After I heard the news of Prince Harry and Meghan’s engagement, my memories went back to the day that Lady Diana Spencer married the Prince of Wales, Charles on July 29, 1981 at St Paul’s Cathedral. I was glued to the t.v. as most of America and the world was (actually 750 million people watched). This special day had to be the Wedding of the Century. Every single little detail was magical. She was glowing, he looked debonair in his uniform and the thousands and thousands of on lookers outside the church, Buckingham Palace and lining the streets helped to create the feeling of “only once in a lifetime” can we experience something like this. My inner little girl spirit was memorized.

For years Princess Diana captured the world with her heart, her quiet voice, beautiful smile and genuine spirit of giving. I was much younger then as was she, so I watched her blossom into such a beautiful woman, wife and mother. I followed her story, stared at her photos and dreamed of what her life must be like. It wasn’t til much later and even after her tragic death that we learned her life wasn’t the fairytale we all thought it was. Being in the royal family has definite challenges. But my adoration of her never changed, the things we learned never tarnished her image in my opinion. She was still and always will be one person that I feel impacted and touched my soul.

So fast forward many years and her children are all grown up. And following in their Mother’s footsteps, they have blossomed into respectful young men. Princess Diana really made an impact on them and the world is a better place because of it. They continue to give back to the world as she did and I am sure each and every day she smiles at them from heaven. I imagine if they were to sit quietly without any noise or distraction from the world they would feel her presence near them and in them…maybe a flutter of their heart or a warm feeling inside…maybe even a slight breathe close to their ears. No matter what I am sure she is proud of them.

So what can we expect from Prince Harry’s wedding? Prince William and Kate had a stunning event but for whatever reason it didn’t capture my attention as much as Lady Diana’s story. Maybe Meghan and Prince Harry will be able to capture the world’s spirit. Do you think it is possible? I really don’t think it can be the same fairytale wedding as Lady Diana but for sure I think it could be close. But really the BIG question is “why are Prince Harry and Meghan getting married so fast?”

In my line of work….the wedding industry…quick weddings mean 1 of 2 things. 1. Bride is pregnant or 2. Someone in the family is terminally ill. So which one is it? Well Prince Harry has a super close relationship with his 96 year old Grandfather and wants very much for him to be at his wedding so that could be the reason for the whirl wind engagement and quick wedding. BUT rumors also exist that Meghan is pregnant….Oh the royal family would just be nuts if that was true!
