Carol Ann Duffy’s royal wedding poem for Harry and Meghan

In the days leading up to the wedding it seem like Carol Ann Duffy was to remain silent.

No royal poem was released ahead of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s marriage, but now the poet laureate has released her missive for the big day.

A royal source said they were unaware of any poem earlier in the week, but it seems Dame Carol Ann Duffy waiting for her moment.

The Guardian released the poem, which celebrates rings found in nature without mentioning the couple.

Royal Wedding poem

It should be private, the long walk

on bereavement’s hard stones;

and when people wave, their hands

should not be mobile phones,

nor their faces lenses;

so your heart dressed in its uniform.

On. Then one blessed step

and the long walk ended

where love had always been aimed,

her arrows of sweet flowers gifting

the air among bells- yes, they all looked-

and saying your name.
