The Two Best Quotes from the Royal Wedding
As someone who struggles to wake up at 7 o’clock in the morning I find it mildly amusing that I was able to wake up at 3:30 this morning to drive to a royal wedding party. Yes I will admit, I woke up early to see the marriage between Prince Harry and Her Royal Highness Megan, Duchess of Sussex. The wedding was absolutely beautiful, they could not have had a more perfect day weather wise. The service was beautiful, the dress was beautiful, Megan was beautiful, my saying beautiful too much? However with all of the pomp and circumstance, there were two moments that stood out to me the most.
While these two moments may not make the highlight reel for the day, for me I want both of these quotes on a T-shirt. Two of the lines during the royal wedding had me giggle a little bit. One of which was said during the service, the other from a reporter commenting on the guest as they arrived.
Reverend Michael Curry made headlines for his passionate sermon during the service. While some think that his sermon was a little too passionate for a royal wedding, I found his words to be quite moving. However one line in particular stood out to me the most. At one point during Reverend Curry’s sermon he used the sentence "Jesus did not get an honorary diploma for dying." I cannot remember what he said before or after that sentence, so the context is lost to me. However, it made me laugh and I immediately said that I wanted it on a T-shirt.
The best quote, for me, during the royal wedding came from a reporter who was commenting on the guests as they arrive to the wedding. I believe it was a reporter from either NBC or CNN who commented as Amal and George Clooney arrived to the church. She referred to the couple as Amal Clooney and her husband.
Yes, you can laugh at that. While Amal has made a name for herself with her humanitarianism and for being a world renowned lawyer, George may just have a little bit more name recognition, especially in the states. I would never refer to the couple as George Clooney and his wife, but I think referring to the couple as Amal Clooney and her husband is even a little bit more funny.
