Mumbai Family Continues Family Tradition, Flies To UK For Royal Wedding
The couple missed Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding in 2011 due to professional commitments. So when Prince Harry and American actor Meghan Markle’s wedding date was announced, they knew they had to be there.
“When this happened, we knew it (the wedding) was going to be around this time, we decided why not go and see the wedding. It is once-in-a-lifetime thing and it is also going to be a great opportunity for our son,” Bianca said.
In the days leading up to the wedding, the family has been spending their time in Windsor, seeing the wedding preparations and even collecting some Royal wedding-themed souveniers. Bianca and her husband even walked inside the chapel where Meghan and Harry will tie the knot on Saturday.
“Bianca and me put our hand-in-hand and walked down the aisle in St George’s chapel,” husband Alan Louzado joked.
Bianca, a professional makeup artist in Mumbai, hopes to see a natural and subdued look on Meghan Markle on the big day. “Her gown is going to be spectacular, at the same time subdued because they are people who are for people,” she said.
On Saturday, the family will start early to get a good spot to try and catch a glimpse of the Royal couple, who will make a short journey in a special horse and carriage as newlyweds.
“We wanted to camp out, even if couple of nights before if we had to. But the police has cordoned off the area… We are planning on finding a spot along the procession route that the couple will take once the wedding is over,” Alan said.
The excitement level is equally high for their 10-year-old son, Hayden.”My son is really excited. As soon as we entered Windsor, he said ‘Am I going to see anybody? Am I going to see The Queen?'” Bianca told NDTV.
Asked whether they will come back for the next Royal wedding, Bianca quipped that she hopes her son will come for Prince George’s wedding in the future. “I told my son when Prince George gets married, you have to come here to keep the tradition,” she said.
