RELATIONSHIPS: How The Royal Wedding Defines True Love | ShesIt

Unconventional Love

 

“The whole idea of true love is that through a person we can find that beautiful love vibration that can guide us into a magical journey of self-discovery and empowerment.” – Levita

 

In this world, we are guided by either love or fear. Every choice we make—especially in matters of the heart—we get to directly demonstrate how we desire to lead our lives. The Royal Wedding Ceremony was a wonderful example of love being showcased in an unconventional way.

 

“Prince Harry, 33, the grandson of Queen Elizabeth II, married Meghan Markle, 36, an American actress, at Windsor Castle.” – NYTimes

 

Harry and Meghan’s wedding ceremony was portrayed as a union filled with love, aside from age and cultural differences. This is the beauty of unconventional love; it simply wishes to be spread like wildfire.

 

“Markle is, of course, one of the first mixed-race members of the monarchy—and the royal wedding didn’t shy away from celebrating the significance of her heritage. With power and passion, Bishop Curry addressed the history of slavery and quoted Martin Luther King. A modern sermon, for our modern couple.” – Meghan McKenna via Fashion Magazine

 

Bishop Michael Curry, the first African-American head of the Episcopal Church in the United States, movingly shared his sermon. He said, “We must discover the power of love, the power, the redemptive power of love. And when we do that, we will make of this whole world a new world. But love, love is the only way.”

 

The emotions felt by everyone encourage us all to tune in to the love vibration that is being shared, and to emulate that essence of being to fulfill our luck and happiness.

 

Twenty beautiful gospel singers from the Kingdom Choir gave a soulful performance of the Ben E. King classic “Stand by Me,” and the ceremony ended with Etta James version “Amen/This Little Light of Mine,” a gospel song that became in tantamount to the US civil rights movement.

 

“The presence of Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana, was also subtly felt at the ceremony.” Guide me o thou great redeemer” was sung at Diana’s funeral, at her memorial service in 2007 and at Kate and William’s wedding in 2011, and again on Saturday. – CNN

 

Harry’s aunt, Lady Jane Fellowes, (Diana’s sister) read a passage from the Song of Solomon: “Arise my love, my fair one, and come away; for now, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone.”

 

The touching presence of love was felt. As we rise in humanity through evolution, love leads us in ways where we can connect deeper to words, music, and energy in general.

 

The Royal Ceremony is bringing that reality to it’s’ forefront in pure appreciation and celebration of love.

 

“The pair fell in love with Africa separately but it was their first trip together as a couple which sealed their romantic fate. Even before the pair met, they were both involved in various charity projects which saw them visiting the sun-soaked continent.” – Mirror.co

 

This is the rhythm of modern day fairytales, as two people come together for a higher purpose through the soul’s desire to help people. This is how love blossoms.

 

As children, we were taught that love is a magical feeling that we find in a person. As adults, we are catapulted into a pressure-filled reality where marriage and career becomes a controlling, almost fear-based destiny, for those who succumb to societal obligations and “traditions.”

 

However, love goes beyond those limitations of the cookie-cutter portrait. Harry and Meghan exemplify characteristics of true love through their soul’s work as a team. Based on their differences, this adds diversity and life to their relationship.  

 

My childhood friend Annabelle recently got married to her love in a quiet ceremony. She was from London and he grew up in China. When they met, they realized that they had grown up differently, and they had to get over the different racial stereotypes from family and friends. Annabelle’s husband Victor said, “Now we tell our love story and share to others how love leads the way, not labels.”

 

The Royal Wedding opens the door to a wider audience in encouragement to support love through harmony and stability. This is truth and happiness. This is the modern day love we can all aim to achieve.

 

Bishop Michael Curry stated, “When you are loved and you know it, when you love and you show it, it actually feels right, there’s something right about it,” he preached. “And there’s a reason for it, we were made by a power of love and our lives are meant to be lived in that love. That’s why we are here.”

 

Pointing to Harry and Meghan, he then said: “Two young people fell in love and we all showed up.” Fashion Magazine

 

How do you think the Royal Wedding will change love and relationships in the future? Let’s shape the conversation about modern romance together.
