The royal wed­ding is a boon for the en­tire UK


THE deed is done. The sec­ond royal wed­ding of the year has taken place: Princess Eu­ge­nie and Jack Brooks­bank are man and wife and the gusts of wind did noth­ing to dis­pel the good hu­mour of the guests.

Nor the on­look­ers, come to that: the streets of Wind­sor were lined with well-wish­ers out to wave off the bride and groom. And how poignant that Eu­ge­nie was wear­ing a dress that showed off the scar she had from an op­er­a­tion as a child.

A mar­riage is al­ways a cause for cel­e­bra­tion, no mat­ter who is in­volved: it speaks of love and com­mit­ment, of fu­ture gen­er­a­tions, of sta­bil­ity and ma­tu­rity and a de­sire to set­tle down. And in this par­tic­u­lar case, of course, it was the sub­ject of in­ter­est around the world as an­other of the Queen’s grand­chil­dren tied the knot.
