The American love affair with the British Royal Family is an enduring, long-distance relationship, spiced up every now and then by a birth or a marriage. According to the BBC, the latest development has a distinctly American twist: Prince Harry has announced his engagement to the US actress Meghan Markle.US networks are breathlessly covering the news. CBS gave it a "hip hip and a hooray". Many on the other side of the pond have focused not just on Ms Markle's nationality but the fact that she is mixed race."Prince Harry's future mother-in-law is a black woman with dreadlocks. There are no words for this kind of joy," tweeted journalist Samara Linton.
Seriously you guys...I can't even take how romantic this is and how cute they are together. Watch the way they hold hands and look at one another. Hear the organic, authentic and normal way they got to know each other. I've been following their story since they been "secretly" dating. I'm officially obsessed. Apparently I'm not alone in being a hopeful romantic.
PS. Brilliant & well-played for a Monday publicity breaking news cycle ;-)
I'm going to patiently wait for my invite to the 2018 wedding. Feel free to join the party. Congratulations to these two beautiful people. I mean he's a handsome Prince following in his mother's philantropic ways. She has beauty, brains, charm, style, class and is a caring humanitarian. True love exists. #LoveWins.
