The wedding announcement was made by representatives for Harry’s father, Prince Charles, moments ago. It was confirmed within the nuptials will take place in “Spring 2018.”
A statement from Markle’s family followed shortly after…
The news is naturally receiving ample media coverage thanks to Harry’s royal status, but perhaps more so because of the vastly different background Meghan comes from.
Indeed, unlike most who’ve married into the British royal family, she’s from the US, is an actress (famed for her role in ‘Suits’) is a divorcee, and at 36 is three years older than her husband to be.
What’s more, she’s of mixed race heritage by way of her Afro-American mother (photographed above). A fact that’s drawn interesting responses in itself.
Needless to say, millions around the world will no doubt be enamoured with the news. It’ll also be interesting to see how the the meshing of two very different worlds plays out in the press.
In the here and now though, congratulations are most certainly in order!
