The Story Behind Why I Created It: I was pondering the media frenzy regarding Prince Harry’s upcoming nuptials to Meghan Markle. I read an article which was titled farewell to Prince Harry the Original Third Wheel. The original picture was very poignant, the trio was walking through flowers, Kate and Will up front and Harry a few paces behind looking pensive as if wondering when his turn would come. I sketched this via stylus on the app ‘sketches’ and chose bright colors to contrast the Prince’s obvious pondering of life as a symbol that the light of his life was coming.
The Inspiration Factor: Princess Diana has long been my idol in terms of celebrity. I kept a scrapbook chronicling her life and those of her children. After her death, I always kept tabs on her son and their charities, quite proudly. Watching them grow from the stoic boys who walked behind her casket via horse drawn carriage at her funeral into the amazing men they became today was a beautiful tribute to her living legacy. I see Diana in each of her boys, it’s amazing how she lives on through them. I would say sketching this was definitely a labor of love it took two hours to get just right but I’m glad I did!
I wish Harry and Meghan all the best on their upcoming nuptials and in the future.
