- At the star-studded, high-profile wedding for Misha Nonoo, it was just revealed that Meghan Markle was chosen to read a reading during the ceremony.
- Markle picked the reading out herself, which included the words "I vow to bear in mind that if, at times / Things seem to go from bad to worse, / They also go from bad to better."
- We have all the deets of Markle's gorgeous Valentino outfit for the wedding, and inexpensive earrings!
We're getting more details from the wedding Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attended this weekend—Misha Nonoo, who worked with Markle on her Smart Works capsule collection (sold out and currently being restocked!). According to royal reporter Rebecca English, Markle had a special responsibility during the ceremony that literally no other guest had: She gave a reading, which Nonoo asked her to choose herself. Markle chose The Vow by Roger McGough.
The poem, in full, goes like this:
I vow to honour the commitment made this day
Which, unlike the flowers and the cake,
Will not wither or decay. A promise, not to obey
But to respond joyfully, to forgive and to console,
For once incomplete, we now are whole.
I vow to bear in mind that if, at times
Things seem to go from bad to worse,
They also go from bad to better.
The lost purse is handed in, the letter
Contains wonderful news. Trains run on time,
Hurricanes run out of breath, floods subside,
And toast lands jam-side up.
And with this ring, my final vow:
To recall, whatever the future may bring,
The love I feel for you now.
Here's the original news (plumped, in this context, is British slang for supporting something after careful consideration):
This is so sweet. And we know she's a terrific public speaker!
