- NEWS I FIND INTERESTING
I continue to be blissfully unaware of anything about her. I have heard she is an actress in some TV show and, apparently, she is very good in it. I just had a quick look at Wikipedia now and, apparently, she is a humanitarian. Jolly good.
Anyway, Prince Harry loves her and, I presume, Meghan loves Prince Harry. Right. Can we just crack on now without every single news channel on the planet babbling on about it?
I am, I admit, a committed ‘royalist’. I am permanently pleased we have a royal family. I have no time for republican sentiments regarding this and, as the vast majority of Brits like having a royal family, they are here for a long time yet.
Meghan cannot, of course, be a Princess. That is not allowed. She is a ‘commoner’ – which, I agree, sounds a little harsh but the rules are the rules.
She can be a Duchess and very probably will be, which isn’t bad for an American humanitarian actor unheard of in Britain until she started dating Harry.
Only people born into a royal family can become a Prince or Princess through marrying a Prince or Princess.
Hence Lady Diana Spencer became Princess Diana due to being a ‘Lady’ already. Sarah Ferguson became a Duchess as did Will.i.am’s other half, Kate. Sorry, William. Minds wandering a bit.
I have heard Meghan on TV just once in an interview shortly after the engagement was announced. I liked her. I think she will make Harry happy which is excellent as Harry is a thoroughly good egg in my book.
I was dimly aware that there was some unpleasantness initially when the media got wind that they were dating. Apparently Meghan is of ‘mixed race’. Good grief. What a bloody stupid world eh?
Look. Boy meets girl. Love blossoms. Engagement follows and, with a bit of luck and a following wind, a lifetime of living happily ever after will follow.
Harry is a British Prince so some dickheads actually think Meghan’s racial credentials are relevant? God, or the deity of your choice, help us all.
Of course, Meghan is not the first American to become involved with the royal family. A certain divorcee of considerable infamy springs to mind. Sadly for Wallis Simpson, Britain and the establishment were not ready for such shenanigans. As a result poor old Wallis went down in history as the villain of the peace. Probably unfair on her.
Some other American lady popped up on TV recently. Whoever she was she’s married to some minor royal or something but Meghan is the first American since Wallis Simpson to marry so high up in Britain’s royal family and, unlike Wallis, won’t have to move to France as a result.
An American pal asked me why she couldn’t be a Princess. I explained and he seemed pained. I think he thought I was fibbing about the ‘commoner’ thing but I’m not.
Any children they have will be Princes or Princesses though as their father is already a Prince.
Personally, I would have no problem at all with Meghan being a Princess. The way he looked at her I suspect she already is in Harry’s eyes.
All stand and lets drink a toast to a long and happy marriage of the Prince Harry and, oh t’hell with it, the Princess Meghan!
