It’s becoming tricky to avoid the excitement about Harry and Meghan’s upcoming wedding this weekend, but whether you watch it or let it pass you by is your decision. For many coping with bereavement the Royal Wedding will trigger memories of loved ones and perhaps bring up a number of difficult feelings. If that’s something you’re experiencing then we’re here for you. If you need some support this weekend, reply to this post and we’ll get through together.
Sue Ryder blogger Richard, who lost his wife Fiona six months ago, wrote about why he’ll be enjoying the sunshine with his dog instead of watching the wedding:
“To watch the Royal Wedding will remind me of the last one we saw – on a television in a bar in Madeira – with the warm sea breeze flapping the blinds. It will remind me of our own wedding day…There will be times I choose to remember that, such as on our wedding anniversary later in the year. Not yet though.”

I’ll be following Richard’s lead this weekend and going for a long walk in the sun rounded off with a pub lunch. What are your plans?
