Wedding 6 word stories

I have been running, a completion for a 6 word story with the prompt Wedding. I will be hosting this completion again week beginning 2ndJune. The next two weeks, the post will be hosted by Kirsty on kirstwrites.

My attempt was:

 Two become one. Forever always happy.

Sheryl  also went for a fairytale finsh, with:

Vows sealed with a loving kiss.

Everyone else was a little more cynical…


Happily ever after. Only in tales.


Her bump was obvious. Inlaws glared.


She refused. I married her sister.


Gamble-roll your dice and pray.


He gazed and said
“You’ll do”

Damn the divorce will cost lots.


Arranged marriage–their parents scored big.

Peter’s ponderings

Harried, parried, tarried, carried, married!


But the wedding pictures reflected otherwise…


Show me to the singles table.

A few posts from other blogs related to the wedding:


A post about the invitation:



♔By Royal Invitation


A post that is about Queen Victoria walking two of her daughters down the aisle after her husband albert’s death. I definatley like the term walking down the aisle more than ‘Giving away’ as that sounds like a woman is a possession to be passed from one man to another.

May Royal wedding

It is May. Queen Victoria banned her 9 children from marrying in May because she felt it was unlucky. However, this May sees the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The wedding is 19th may; look out for further posts in the run up to the big day.

Anzac Day

Anzac Day marks the anniversary of the first campaign 0n 25th April 1915 that led to major casualties for Australian and New Zealand forces during World War One. Thousands of men of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (Anzacs) died during the failed Gallipoli landings in Turkey in 1915, which aimed to take control of the Dardanelles waterway – a key route to the Black Sea and Russia.

The events of 1915 and the conflicts that followed have been remembered on 25th April since 1916.

On 24-25April 1918, Australian and New Zealand and British military  recaptured French town Veillers-Bretonneux from Nazis (the Battle of Veillers-Bretonneux). Prince Charles was in Veillers-Bretonneux today, to commemorate, this battle 100 years on.

I had not heard of it prior to today but, in addition to Prince Charles being in France there was a service at Westminster. New Dad of three William attended and forthcoming bride and groom respectively Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attended THE Westminster service.

Will the new Royal baby ever be King?

The new royal baby is now 5thin line to the English throne and will move up places in line of succession, on deaths or abdication of any or all of the following:

The Queen

Prince Charles

Prince William

Prince George

Princess Charlotte


Therefore theoretically, the new baby could become king. However it is very unlikely as a third child to become king. The last third child to be King was William IV who ruled 1830-1837.  Conversely, could the fact, that the new babies, siblings, share their names with William IVs parents be a sign of the new babies destiny? William IV parents were George III and Queen Charlotte.


With everybody, living longer then it is unlikely everyone listed above would die before Prince George and Princess Charlotte have children.  If and when Prince George or Princess charlotte has children their children push the new baby, down the order of succession.


Given there are rules about too many heirs to the throne travelling together; it is unlikely that all the heirs would die at the same time. Unless god forbid, someone plants a bomb in Windsor Castle 19thMay when it is the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and that kills all of above. But the new baby does not go to the wedding being too young. All very far fetched as the security at the wedding will be intense and the baby will probably be in attendance.
