A Royal Affair: What a Royal Wedding Means to Me Being a Brit!
Harry has always captured the hearts of the public due to his fun-loving approach to life and for his decade-long service in the British military. A little-known fact is that Harry is a fully trained Apache Helicopter pilot and this is what he flew in his deployment in the Helman Province of the Afghan War.
His time in the military had a lasting impact on Harry and drove him to launch the Invictus Games in 2014 for wounded, injured or sick armed service personnel. He remains a patron of its foundations. Another notable charity Harry gives patronage to is Walking with The Wounded. In fact, Harry and the wounded in-service ex-services walked to the South Pole to raise awareness.
His decision not to invite any members of the U.K. Parliament to his wedding also endeared him to the public.
So, what will my husband (also from the U.K.) and myself being doing for the wedding? Most likely remembering how proud of the Royal Family we are, hum the national anthem and, of course, have the traditional cucumber sandwich. We’ll also be smiling, as this wedding will make the special bond the U.S. & the U.K. share even stronger.
