Prince Harry & Meghan Markle FINALLY tie the knot!

prince harry

Well the day came today, Prince Henry, Duke of Sussex (Henry Charles Albert David) & Meghan, Duchess of Sussex (Rachel Meghan Markle) tied the knot at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. There was a tight guest list for the ceremony, just 600 people were invited to the service, Kensington Palace announced in March.

So, there is a lot to cover on this story as it just happened today.

Let’s start off with CONGRATULATIONS to them AND this will last 4 years tops…J/K but seriously, how long do we think this is going to last before the Queen says so?

Anyway, Prince William, Harry’s older brother and second in line to the British throne, was Harry’s best man, Meghan did not have a maid of honor!

Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, his father Prince Charles, who is first in the line of succession for the crown, were present at the wedding.

Prince William’s wife, Kate Middleton, was also at the wedding. The couple’s youngest child, newborn Prince Louis, did not attend the ceremony.

Diana’s sisters include Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Lady Jane Fellowes, as well as her brother, Earl Charles Spencer.

Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland, traveled with her daughter by car to Windsor Castle on May 19.

Early on May 15, Markle’s father, Thomas Markle, said that he wanted to be a part of the historic royal wedding by walking his daughter down the aisle. However, he did not attend , health restrictions and a recent heart surgery prevented him from going to the big ceremony. That and that little stunt he pulled with the staged paparrazi prevented him from being invited, sources speculate!

Amongst the royal families family and friends, Markel’s friends included, Priyanka Chopra, Serena Williams, Oprah Winfrey, Idris Elba, Elton John, George and Amal Clooney and David and Victoria Beckham to name a few.

Lets talk about cost, they definitely shed some serious cash…or did they?

reportedly, abut 94 percent of the total cost of the nuptials was spent on, SECURITY!!!!

Ok lets break it down,

The wedding rings

  • Estimated cost: $7,400 (£6,000)

Meghan Markle’s engagement ring probably costs more than most of the items on this list — a lot less than the couple’s wedding bands. Prince Harry proposed to Markle with a ring containing diamonds that belonged to Princess Diana, making it worth at least $350,000.

Invitations,

  • Estimated cost: $24,600 (£20,000)

Combined, the invitations, save-the-dates, menus, and more will cost nearly $25,000 to produce.

Venue,

  • Estimated cost: $498,000 (£350,000)

The wedding will take place at Windsor Castle, within St. George’s Chapel specifically. Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall also married here. The royal family will pay to decorate and secure the location, but the chapel itself is free for them to use.

The dress,

  • Estimated cost: $420,000 (£300,000)

It is reported that Markle will at for her own wedding dress, since the royal family is paying for most of the wedding. Traditionally the father of the bride pays for it all BUT we know that situation!

The food,

  • Estimated cost: $407,000 (£286,000)

The royal family will pay almost as much for the occasion’s catering as they will to host the event in Windsor Castle. Whatever they end up serving, there’s one thing that definitely won’t make it onto the menu, per royal rules. You probably won’t find any shellfish at the wedding. The royal family is not allowed to eat shellfish because it is more likely to cause food poisoning than other types of food. Though this rule has been around for quite some time, Prince Charles (Markle’s soon to be father-in-law) has been known to dabble from time to time.

The cake,

  • Estimated cost: $61,000 (£50,000)

This highly controversial cake could end up costing the royal family more than the couple’s wedding rings. It’s not the buttercream frosting that’s responsible for the expensive cake, but the high-profile pastry chef in charge of creating it, California-born pastry chef Claire Ptak.

The music,

  • Estimated cost: $420,000 (£300,000)

Not really sure whos performing but sources speculate, Sir Elton John herself will be performing.

The flowers,

  • Estimated cost: $135,000 (£110,000)

AND SECURITY, A WHOPPING 40 MILLION FOR SECURITY!!!!! That’s insane, SO when all said and done the actual wedding would range from 2.3 million to 2.5 million…AND guess who pays for security…THE TAXPAYERS!!!!!

UUUUFFFF, could cover more but I’m over this story LOL…Thanks for reading!!!!!

Update: The late Amy Winehouse’s Ex husband Blake Fielder-Civil received texts from Amy AFTER she had passed!

If you re-call Blake Fielder-Civil whom was married to musician Amy Winehouse for two years and were INSEPARABLE!

Well as most of us know, Blake went to prison for various charges and while locked up, His ex wife Amy died of accidental alcohol poisoning when she resumed drinking after weeks of abstinence.

Well before Amy passed away, Blake had moved on and had a child with Sarah Aspin named, Jack!

When Blake wen to prison Amy had sent him some text messages asking Blake if she could be the Godmother to his son…Blake didn’t read those text messages until he was released from prison and sweet Amy had already passed away.

According to Blake’s mother Georgette,

“He had messages on his phone from Amy which he only got recently. He didn’t have the phone in prison and he picked up messages from her when he was released. She said she wanted to be Jack’s godmother. The grief for Amy started again. I fear he may have been trying to take his own life… If he pulls through it may be two months before he is discharged. The worrying thing is if he then goes back to his substance misuse. Next time he won’t make it, there is no doubt about that.”

Blake went on a Drug and Alcohol binge and nearly died…he was found by his partner Sarah Aspin choking in his bed and was rushed to a hospital!

Last I heard he was still in an induced coma and was going to remain for another week due to some infections.

I really hope he recovers and seeks some help.

Amy Winhouse’s EX husband Blake Fielder-Civil in coma after Alcohol/Drug OVERDOSE!

Doctors have placed Blake Fielder-Civil into a medical coma following an overdose caused by an alcohol and drug binge.

His body is reportedly fighting an infection that resulted from the mixture alcohol, morphine and heroin.

Sarah Aspin, the mother of Blake’s toddler son, found the ex-husband of Amy Winehouse choking on his own vomit  merely DAYS after the one-year anniversary of Amy’s death.

Sarah explains the events leading up to the overdose:

“We’d been so happy last Thursday morning and talked about getting married. Blake had a 1pm appointment with the probation service in Morley, and said he might be late as he was meeting a friend. He’s never really been a drinker, but when he got home with this friend, he was slurring his words and staggering – I thought he was on something. I was very angry because he’d been doing so well. I had to get his shoes and trousers off to help him into bed. [The] next morning I went to get up and heard a horrid scratching and grating breathing sound. I looked round and saw Blake lying there completely grey. His eyes were rolled back and his mouth was locked together.”

Doctors say he could end up with permanent brain damage if he wakes up.

They also discovered that one of his lungs was failing to function, so they’ve had to place a tube down his throat to pump oxygen through his body.

So, SO, sad…I hope he recovers from it and gets sober for his own good!

Prayers are with him and his family.
