Two news headlines from today:

Royal Wedding


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have today become husband and wife in a moving ceremony at Windsor Castle.  An emotional-looking prince and his smiling bride exchanged vows and rings before the Queen and 600 guests at St George’s Chapel.Ms Markle, wearing a white boat-neck dress by British designer Clare Waight Keller, was walked down the aisle by Prince Charles.

At the altar, Prince Harry told her: “You look amazing.”  After the service the couple – who will now be known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – kissed in front of cheering well-wishers on the steps of the chapel.  Thousands of members of the public turned out in the bright sunshine to see them driven around Windsor in a horse-drawn carriage.

Later, Prince Harry drove the couple to their reception in a silver blue Jaguar, with a registration plate that referenced the date – E190518.

FA Cup Final  at Wembley Stadium


Chelsea 1-0 Manchester United

Eden Hazard’s first-half penalty proved enough for Chelsea to beat Manchester United 1-0 in the FA Cup final at Wembley.  The Belgian converted in the 22nd minute, having been brought down by Phil Jones in the area.  The result saw the Blues condemn former manager Jose Mourinho to a season without a trophy. That said, the win was unlikely to save the job of the Chelsea team’s manager Antonio Conte.
