This article in the May 2018 issue of Oprah Magazine made me recall the first royal wedding I have seen and made me excited for the upcoming royal wedding of Prince Harry & Meghan Markle.
The wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana in 1981 was known as “the wedding of the century” and still makes headlines over 35 years later. My first royal wedding memory is of waking up early one Friday morning in April 2011 to watch Prince William and Kate’s wedding on my 26″ flat panel screen from the loft bed in my dorm room. I also remember the buzz surrounding Pippa’s dress and Princess Beatrice’s and Princess Eugenie’s hats.
After getting married, I have an appreciation for what weddings represent. Weddings are celebrations that bring people together – and this time on a world-wide level.
Also, despite there being no monarchy in the USA, I along with most little girls in America grew up with fairy tales, Disney movies, and princess dresses.
There’s something special about seeing an American girl become a royal.
The Oprah Magazine article about how to host a royal wedding watch party, has a recipe for Devon scones.
The first time I remember having a scone was when a high school friend made them after returning from a summer with her grandparents across the pond.
I had been thinking of trying to make them at home for a while, and the royal wedding seemed like the perfect occasion. The recipe in the magazine looked more like a biscuit and I wanted something sweeter, so I tried this recipe from Pinterest.
I’ll consider this a Pinterest Win since they were not only picture perfect but also very tasty.
