The whole globe is impatiently waiting for another historical Royal wedding. Really impatiently. Many hearts have been warmed by the revelation that Prince Harry is going to marry Meghan Markle next year.
First and foremost, almost everyone wants a great royal wedding. This extraordinary historical phenomenon is beyond spectacular.
Also, the 36-year-old actress is writing and changing history. Once married, Markle will become the first American woman married into the Royal family in modern history, as well as the first woman of color to do so!
All that left aside, they make the cute couple, don’t they?
When it comes to the wedding and the long preparations, Harry could take a page from his older brother’s book. William married Kate Middleton, who is now the Duchess of Cambridge, back on the 29th of April 2011 at Westminster Abbey in London. Of course, it was the wedding of the decade and hundreds of millions of people across the globe were watching without blinking. There were huge parties all around the United Kingdom where people gathered in the streets to celebrate the big day, which was specially designated as a Bank holiday.
But, what you didn’t see on TV was the long and excruciatingly tiring preparations for the spectacle. For instance, did you know that William was sleep-deprived and he managed to sleep only 30 minutes before the big day?
No, he wasn’t partying, but rather simply tucked up in his bed at his parent’s home, which just happens to be Buckingham Palace. Anyways, there were several reasons for William’s sleepless night. First, of course, he was nervous, as he was about to get married. Weddings can be nerve-wracking experiences, right? Plus, everyone would be watching his.
Also, it was noisy around the Buckingham Palace that night, as followers were already camping in the streets, hoping to get a good spot for the following day’s ceremony.
“They were singing and cheering all night long,” the Duke of Cambridge said, “So the excitement of that, the nervousness of me and everyone singing – I slept for about half an hour.”
Perhaps 33-year-old Harry should learn from his brother’s experience and go to bed earlier the night before the big day? And just in case, maybe get himself a good pair of earplugs and make sure he gets a good night sleep. If he isn’t nervous, of course.
