It was a significant day in royal history on May 19, 2018, as Prince Harry took the plunge with American actress Meghan Markle. Thousands of people surrounded Windsor Castle to be a part of the iconic wedding. Millions witnessed the glorious ceremony live while sitting in their homes because of the live telecast. It might surprise you that the British racing driver Lewis Hamilton was also one among the many who watched the wedding on their television.
Back in 2018, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle charmed the F1 legend. He also admitted to being gutted about missing the opportunity of being at St George’s Castle to witness the wedding. Why did Lewis Hamilton consider the Sussexes’ wedding as the best he had ever seen?
Prince Harry Meghan Markle bought diversity into the royal family
In an interaction in 2018, Lewis Hamilton claimed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding was a proud day for the world. He hailed the Duchess of Sussex, while also labeling her entry into the royal family as a symbol of positivity and change.
“I watched here at the weekend just with a smile on my face the whole time. It was the greatest wedding I’ve ever seen – and I’m not big on weddings at all. I avoid them at all costs. But this was one. I wish I was actually in England to have seen it,” Hamilton mentioned, as quoted by the Express.
The F1 legend revealed that having diversity in Buckingham Palace was a huge deal for all people across the globe. It was beautiful to see the variety in the music, choir, and ministers at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle. Hamilton also hailed the California-based royals as a power couple and their wedding as a fairytale.
Meanwhile, a lot has changed in the royal family since the iconic wedding. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle no longer form a part of the royal family. In less than two years of their marriage, they parted ways from the institution to live a private life in California. In the past two months, the couple has come up with their six-part Netflix docuseries and Spare to highlight the atrocities of the firm and UK media that pushed them to leave the country.
