The sweet Megan Markle had that bright sparkle for she landed herself a true prince Our dear handsome Harry, was never contrary But the Queen he had to convince All Britain is fawning, this is a new dawning for actress turned royal brings fame the coffers are filling, and tourism's thrilling The Duke and the Duchess are game The wedding's now history, no longer a myst'ry the world watched each detail in awe this couple got hitched as each lose thread got stitched There was not a single guffaw Traditions respected, through some circumvented the bride added much to the day A curtsy forgotten, does not make her rotten Just strong willed as some critics say Her dress was straight lined, demure and refined the make-up was simple and sweet Prince George and Charlotte, they made us all gloat Their goodness must warrant a treat I'm happy for Harry, he is a dear chappy his smiles tell the world all is well the pre-wedding drama, that long pause or comma forgotten, for now all is swell So the 19th of May was quite a big day It showed fairy tales still come true Now young ladies know, to put beauty on show The next story could be about you.

An enjoyable recounting of the day Eileen. I saved the plane ticket and got all the magic in just a few minutes. Check Stanza 5, a small typo, “the” needs a “y”.

Lovely fairy tale verse Eileen. It was quite spectacular to watch and the younger royals are more in touch with the people now. Good luck to them.

Just another wedding as far as I'm concerned. I was surprised at his selection for a wife. I hope they will be happy, i guess. It's really neither here nor there to me. I did however love your poem, Eileen. Great rhyming and flow:)

Oh...it was fun to watch. There was so much drama before it and it is a big deal for the monarchy on several levels. I just enjoyed writing it and watching it. :)

Let's hope so. They are both involved in many humanitarian causes, so I think they will have a positive impact in many ways. Thanks for reading. :)

I was not fawning, I am not a royalist.. Although I do prefer Harry to the others and Megan is lovely.. so glad he broke barriers.... Would have been great to see what the Queens original reaction would have been...You wrote a wonderful poem though and I agree it was a fairytale come true for Megan..

I've been watching a lot of videos and have gotten some backstories on the whole thing...simply intriguing. The Monarchy is loved by its people, so I think they will not become redundant any time soon. Harry is more....personable than the rest. As for Megan...she was an ambassador for World Vision, so I believe she will be influential in a positive way. Thanks for the visit.

What a charming rhyme Eileen . Thankfully the monarchy is changing and moving into the 21st century - who would have dreamed Harry would marry a divorcee of mixed race - it is fabulous in so many ways, I hope Harry and Meghan continue with the fairytale romance and live happily ever after:-) hugs Jan xx

The wedding itself had so many elements in it that were very...nontraditional. I've keep up with the goings on simply because there is that romantic side to me. it was a fairy tale come true. :) Hugs

What a marvelous and true narration of events! So artfully written and so true! The message is also an additional bonus dearest friend, Eileen! You already have your prince dear one. Haven't you? Haha! Superb rhyme!
