Everything has stopped in Cannes while the Royal Wedding guests arrive for the marriage of Prince Harry and Megan Markle. It’s the ultimate reality show.
Guests of note to us include Sarah Ferguson, James Corden, Elton John and David Furnish, David and Victoria Beckham, the cast of “Suits,” Abigail Spencer from “Timeless,” Priyanka Chopra, Serena Williams and husband Alexis Ohanian, founder of Reddit.
But it’s very instructive watching BBC because they’re featuring dozens of non celebrity guests, many of whom are multi cultural and quite a different world from the usual Royal family activities. They’re all incredibly interesting, coming from a range of world charities. Prince Harry and Megan are revolutionizing the image of the Royals forever. It’s very, very astute.
Meanwhile, the speculation is all about Megan’s wedding dress. Will it be designed by Stella McCartney? If so, imagine that the 50 years on, the Beatles can still sing “Her Majesty.” The group’s influence on the culture is cemented.
