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.
