British Royal Weddings

According to official sources Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have broken with the weekday tradition and have chosen to have a Saturday royal wedding.

The precise reasons for this break in royal protocol are not available. While the Queen gladly offered her consent for Harry’s wedding, it is reported that the British government found reasons for not granting a public weekday holiday for this royal occasion. This loving couple is so socially and culturally conscious that they have turned stodgy heads topsy-turvy. Harry and Meghan have cleverly side-stepped the issues and selected a relaxed Saturday wedding. They want the devoted public to watch their blessed day as it happens on television. But is it true that English royals prefer weekdays for their wedding days?  It’s time to do some research.

Our research shows that the British royal weddings usually take place on weekdays. Even the “not so royal” civil ceremony of Prince Charles and Camilla was planned to take place on Friday, April  8, 2005 but it had to be postponed until the next day in respect to the funeral of Pope John Paul II. Do royal weddings all over the world follow this weekday tradition?  We’ll see!
