The wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan

British royal family; the bride, Meghan

the wedding would take place on 19 May
2018 at St George's Chapel,

It was love at first sight for Prince Harry and Meghan
Markle, who both quickly sensed their brief encounter
on a blind date could blossom into something much,
much bigger. They were set up by a mutual friend
when American actress Markle was passing through
London in July 2016, with the couple later revealing
they knew little about each other. The speed of their
relationship surprised them both.
“The fact that I fell in love with Meghan so incredibly
quickly was a confirmation to me that all the stars
were aligned. Everything was just perfect,” said
Less than two years later, they will tie the knot at
Windsor Castle on May 19, sealing a relationship that
rapidly grew outside of the media spotlight – and
survived when it went public in explosive fashion.
Harry had never heard of Markle or watched Suits,
the US television legal drama series she had starred
in since 2011. “I was beautifully surprised when I
walked into that room and saw her,” he recalled, and

Schindler's List WRITTEN BY OUR
Steven Spielberg's film Schindler's List is the type
of movie that you willy probably only want to
watch once in your lifetime. It is not the type of
movie you will pop into the DVD player on a cold
rainy afternoon; One would really only watch a
movie about genocide with purpose, such as
watching the works of the director, studying the
film for school or research, or for film review
While the story is captivating and harrowing in its
portrayal of Oscar Schindler and his actions during
the Holocaust, its bleakness will not have you
begging to watch it time and time again.
Despite being shot in black and white, the
cinematography is breath-taking, playing with light
and shadows. The sole use of color to spotlight a
little girl's red coat is brilliantly done, bringing a
heart-breaking moment to life.
The subject matter is sensitive to many people and
some may find the film historically inaccurate or
handled with kid gloves. It is important to keep in
mind that this is not a documentary and its mission
is not to portray the events of World War II with
true accuracy. With this in mind, one can
appreciate the movie from the perspective of a
