Members of the royal family, American actors and actresses and some elite others had the great privilege of attending the royal wedding yesterday. We saw the likes of Priyanka Chopra, Oprah, the Beckhams and Serena Williams dressed to the nines for the wedding of the year.
But there was one wedding guest I wished we’d seen more of -- Violet von Westenholz.
“Who?” you just said to yourself.
von Westenholz was the secret cupid behind the setup of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (ahem, sorry, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex). Her identity was revealed early this year, soon after the engagement was announced. As Harry’s childhood friend (her father is a baron) and a good acquaintance of Meghan’s (she works in PR for Ralph Lauren), she saw the potential pairing as a win-win for the couple. And, I mean, she was right.
Given that she was the whole reason this wedding happened in the first place, I was hoping we’d see a bit more of her during the ceremony. Alas, there wasn’t much focus on the matchmaker besides this photo where Lady Kitty Spencer (right) is kind of showing her up.
Let her take some credit here, people!
