Media coverage of Britain’s royal wedding focused mostly on breaks with tradition—with a biracial, divorced, American bride and a couple that lived together before marriage.

But the ceremony itself also sent some more traditional messages: in a nation with church attendance half what it is in America, the Christian themes and references must have puzzled secular Britons, joining husband and wife in the eyes of God, not just through power of government. Eight days after Meghan and Harry united their fates, our younger daughter will make a similar commitment when we celebrate her marriage.

We may not provide the lavish trappings of a royal wedding, but bride and groom always reign as queen and king in Jewish tradition.  And may Shayna and Mark always treat one another as royalty!
