THE ROYAL WEDDING AND THE MEANING BEHIND MARKLE'S DRESS


The royal wedding was on Saturday and it is something that has sparked a lot of different opinions and controversy across the UK and the rest of the world. It was a beautiful day filled with lots of A list celebrities such as Serena Williams, The Beckhams and Oprah! 


The contraversy behind the event is obviously the tax payers money that had been spent on the day. People were outraged that our country can afford the most elaborate wedding of the year but it couldn't afford to rehouse the victims of the Grenfell Tower tragedy. I have to say that I completely agree. I love a royal wedding as much as the next person, but to blatantley spend a huge amount of money on people that have the most amazing lifestyle already instead of people that are actually homeless through no fault of their own, is disgusting to me. Despite this, I was always going to have a cheeky look at what was happening and what she was wearing! 


 The dress was custom Givenchy, created by the newest artistic director at the house, Clare Waight Keller. Clare is the first ever female artistic director at Givenchy and I believe that this is a political message that Megan Markle is emphasising, empowerment of women. She has previously pledged to empower women during her time as a princess and I have to say, I believe her. 


Breaking the traditions of a royal wedding, like Markle did, cannot be easy when battling against the royal family. She had an amazing gospel choir, full of people o colour, singing on her big day, and I believe this was her way of telling the world, that she will not put up with the racism that has been thrown her way since becoming engaged to Prince Harry. She walked herself down the aisle and didn't promise to 'obey' her husband in her vows, both of these things, I think, were feminist statements. 


Despite the controversy behind the wedding, I have high hopes for Megan Markle as our new princess. I feel as though she will bring female empowerment to the royals in a way we have never seen before. I believe she might have the rebellious nature of Princess Diana and I think the nation will fall in love with her. 

THANK YOU
