Top Ten “OMG” moments you may have missed

The Royal Wedding obsession continues – here’s another top ten, following Long’s genius list from yesterday. This is for those of you who have a life and may not have been eating & sleeping RW for the last week.

1.Princess Charlotte sticking out her tongue, channeling her Uncle Harry circa 1988.

 

 

2. The royally hot (and accomplished) wedding photog, Alexi Lubomirski. Read lots of fun facts (like his being an actual Prince himself, here.)

P.S. Long, he’s Vegan – maybe we can arm wrestle for him?

3. The bouquet.

The all white collection of flowers features blooms that Prince Harry picked (I Cannot even!) including Forget-Me-Nots which were Diana, Princess of Wales’s favorite flower, sweet peas, lily of the valley, astilbe, jasmine, and astrantia.

It also includes a sprig of myrtle, a royal tradition which dates back to the wedding of Queen Victoria’s daughter, Princess Victoria. Myrtle symbolizes hope and love, making it a fitting addition to any bride’s bouquet, royal or not. (Myrtle also happens to be what I want to name my next dog.)

Which brings us to our next, and perhaps the best, behind the scenes story from the blessed occasion!

4. THE. DOG.

 

 

5. The EX-es.

 

 

Both Chelsy Davy & Cressida Bones were in attendance. Sidebar: I adore Cressida’s dress!

6. Love this new friendship between Doria, Charles & Camilla.

Which brings me to Meghan’s reception speech. Don’t you just love how she broke tradition and spoke at her reception? Oh, to be a fly on the wall. Word on the royal street is that  it was quite emotional and Us Weekly reports that Markle turned to Doria Ragland and said, “You have always been there for me through everything” Apparently, the bride did not mention her father, Thomas Markle, who was unable to attend. The bride also went teary-eyed as she thanked her in-laws for being gracious hosts and for welcoming her and her mother into their family.

7. The bride’s “Something Blue” was said to be her best friend, Jessica Mulroney.

8. These moments didn’t make the headlines of papers across the globe but you know I love my cheesy phrase –  the “headlines of my heart”. Cheers to those who showed up in wedding dresses, jammies, fascinators and drank coffee, multiple mimosas and had a jolly good time watching history in the making with us in our non-royal home.

 

 

 

 

9. Leave it to Clooney.

A source tells ET that the 57-year-old movie star briefly served as a bartender for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry at the star-studded reception, held at Frogmore House in Windsor, England, on Saturday evening.

“George hopped behind the bar and was actually bartending for a bit,” the source said. “He poured Casamigos drinks and shots and got everyone dancing!”

10. The choir sang This little light of mine. Yes, “Stand by Me” was my absolute fave moment as Long mentioned in her Top Ten yesterday. Admittedly, I was buzzed off mimosas, distracted by the fanfare at our own viewing party, that I missed this magical moment.

Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine!

Did they ever.

Crying, again.
