Coming from an individual who has had no direct information regarding who Meghan Markle was (really not into her history as an artist, actress, humanitarian etc) and neither had I ever been too interested in Harry as the Royal Prince, so for me the #RoyalWedding fiasco was a little too much to understand. Though, it wasn’t too hard for me to grab on the train and be led to all the different discussions that revolved around Harry and Meghan’s relationship, their visions, passions and now their journey as #huband and #wife post the wedding.
For feminists this was quite a regressive step taken by Meghan for a strong, independent woman, has chosen to step down from her social lifestyle ladder, giving away her independence, her social identity and even autonomy to be associated with a Prince was something completely indigestible. Because they believed she would end up being unhappy like her Late Mother in Law Diana who fought against the norms to win her independence. Errm, correction? Diana wasn’t just unhappy with being oppressed, she was rather imprisoned in a marriage which had no love.
Apparently, a woman’s independent choice is even looked down at for not being according to a certain group’s perspective! Anyway, there had been quite a lot on the plate for Meghan and Harry already. From a not-so-happy grandma to completely off-hook inlaws.
The couple had sorted off hundreds of things for each other before having the mind and heart to commit to each other and this isn’t just for the Royals, the same is for every other individual leading a normal life and making a huge-ass decision to stick with one annoying individual for the rest of their lives. So for me, the wedding was nothing more than a day and night session of endless, posts, tweets, pictures, memes and #awwwnn moments! Nonetheless, the one meme that won the award for the best, goes as below:
