Radical Future Duchess
In more ways than one, Meghan Markle ascension to the royal family has broken the precedent of the family.
Meghan Markle is the first person of color, American, and actress to be apart of the main royal family. When Prince Edward VIII married Wallis Simpson, an American second time divorcee, it was seen as socially and politically unacceptable as the Head of the Church of England for her to become the Queen Consort. Prince Edward VIII, who was in line to be King, was forced to abdicate the throne when he married Simpson. Prince Harry’s father, Charles, Prince of Wales, was also remarried. Queen Elizabeth II gave Prince Harry special permission to marry Markle.
Meghan has shown a particular support for being a humanitarian as she has participated in charity events involving the victims of the Afghan war, helping spread gender equality, and helping for the fight of clean water in Rwanda.
Meghan Markle is currently apart of the popular TV series “Suits” which she is set to leave due to her life that she going to have soon. Meghan’s family background is also not very traditional as her parents have been divorced.
Meghan was born and raised in Southern California, but will soon be living in England at Kensington Palace with Prince Harry. Her wedding date is set to take place in May of this year. Their relationship has been moving very fast as they have only started dating November of last year. They are moving a lot faster for normal standards within the royal family
Hopefully Meghan Markle’s addition to the Royal Family will bring about a positive change to the monarchy
