Have you fallen in love with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle?

Royal Wedding 2018 was a beautiful, diverse, global political statement.

Meghan Markle brings diversity to the royal family.
In changing careers from the entertainment industry to a member of the royal family, she gets to continue her work as a humanitarian and advocate for social causes.
And the music performed at the wedding reflects that diversity.
Honouring British traditional music and reflecting the diversity with American pop music.
Instrumental.
Choral.

Sheku Kanneh-Mason’s cello performances, backed up by harp, was refreshing. Intimacy of minimal instruments.
Choir of St. George’s Chapel’s rendition of “If Ye Love Me” honoured classical tradition.
The gospel choir’s rendition of Stand By Me, performed by Karen Gibson and the Kingdom Choir, said it all. Shivers and beauty.
Meditative mid-tempo instrumental intro leading in the choir gave me goosebumps.
Royal Wedding 2018’s musical performances were a creative way to represent the union of two diverse cultures.
Love for the win.
