A Royal Media Blunder

Did you see the royal wedding the other day? I was not going to comment on the Prince Harry Meghan Markle royal wedding event that happened, but I can't stop thinking about it. It's driving me crazy. No, not the wedding itself. I heard lots of rumors about the bride and her family. There's apparently some major disputes that got a few of them banned from attending. Then there was the half brother's claim that Megan bankrupted her white step dad, and then left him on the street. But I don't know about any of that. Could just be rumors. I could care less about rumors. The thing that bothered me about the wedding was the media coverage of it by the BBC. There was just something so odd about it. It had the air of propaganda about it. "Propaganda? Why whatever do you mean?" Well for starters they way they kept pushing the word "diversity." Diversity? Really? A bunch of rich white brits along with a few rich black Americans is diverse? Why even bring it up? And why so much? They just kept repeating it over and over again. Then there was the odd constant over exaggeration of things. They went on and on about how "stunning" Meghan's dress was. Stunning? It was the most boring table cloth I have ever seen. Actually I also saw Prince William and Kate's wedding. At the time everyone was commenting about how simple and plain her dress was. And I agreed. For a wedding dress Kate's was pretty ordinary So I went back to have a look at it, and did a little comparison. Meghan's dress made Kate's dress look so fancy. But according to the BBC Kate's was plain and Meghan's was elegant. Is it opposite day? Can't forget to mention that crowd size. At first they claimed it to be thousands of people. Then they made the leap to over a hundred thousand people. I was watching it. Do you think your audience is blind BBC? There's no way that crowd was 100,000. Maybe maybe just maybe it was close to a thousand. Maybe. There were more people at my little league baseball parade then that wedding. And then on top of talking about how big the spectator crowd was they had the only black reporter on the BBC news team going around interviewing people that were "partying and having a great time." Despite the bored "Can we leave now?" look that they all wore as they sat around like people imprisoned in a shelter during a bomb raid. He even awkwardly tried to get a couple of girls to dance. Now let me make it clear that I have nothing against the bride and groom. Nor am I trying to insult them with my description of their wedding. Maybe ordinary was what they were going for. After all when you have that kind of money and power you don't need to show off. People know. I wish them the best of luck. My issue is with the media coverage. They took something that on it's own could have been nice, and turned it into a joke.
I will miss Meghan Markle in the TV series "Suits". As royal wedding goes, nothing will ever compare to that of Prince Charles and Diana's. It wasn't about the pomp and pageantry but the outpouring of goodwill from ordinary people around the world. Of course we found out later that Diana was miserable but kept a brave front.

Her dress was chic and elegant with the veil giving it dramatic effects. The veil was very darling and lovely. Very nice dress not overly done. And neither was her makeup. Perfection!!!! Just saw Kate's dress on the bottom half!! Rather cute!!!
