The Beautiful and Elegant Royal Bride
Congratulations to HRH The Duke and HRH The Duchess of Cambridge
HRH Prince William and Miss Kate Middleton were pronounced husband and wife in a glittering ceremony filled with traditions and history at the Westminister Abbey in London. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made their vows in front of 1,900 guests and the eyes of the world (over 2 billion people were glued to the television to watch the occasion). We offer our sincere congratulations and good wishes to their Royal Highnesses.
The wedding ceremony passed without hitch, with the only moment of tension provided as Prince William struggled to put the ring, fashioned from Welsh gold given to Prince William by the Queen, on his bride’s finger. Otherwise, it was indeed a sparkling display of what Britain is all about–flawless planning, organisation and execution. It was described by commentators as a fairy tale wedding, not seen since HRH Prince Charles-Princess Diana marriage.
After the vows Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, declared: “I pronounce that they be man and wife together, in the name of the father, and of the son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.”–Dr. Kamsiah and Din Merican
Let their Hands be strengthened
