The Caribbean was well represented on Saturday at the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Markle, now the Duchess of Sussex, requested a flower from all 53 countries of the Commonwealth embroidered on her veil for the #royalwedding.

United Kingdom Ambassador to CARICOM, Her Excellency Janet Douglas, tweeted the list of the Caribbean flowers that were featured on the Duchess’veil.

In addition, the Region beamed with pride as Sheku Kanneh-Mason, a young man of Antigua and Barbuda heritage, performed during the ceremony.

The teen cellist hails from a family of seven siblings who are all classical musicians. He performed three pieces as the bride and groom signed the register.

Another highpoint for the Region was the outstanding rendition of ‘Stand by Me’ by the Kingdom Choir whose conductor, Karen Gibson is of Guyanese parentage, the Stabroek News has reported.
