The Peace of God to all that belong to the light,
Dear Readers,

This week after the Thanks giving day we were surprised by the formal announcement of the wedding of 2018, in between His Royal Higness Prince Harry of Britain and the American Actress Meghan Markle.

Please Check:
Meghan Markle engagement with Prince Harry of England

There many ingredients that made this engagement Historic and meaningful and almost all of them concerns to the bride, who is not only not British but divorced and also African American descendant from her maternal line.

Of course not all of her pedigree is unconventional since she has had a long relationship with the Prince and also She has noble blood through her father that even is descendant of a medieval Monarch of England:

King John Lackland, who is a controversial monarch, since from one side was accused in his time to usurped the British Throne supported by the Normands when his elder Brother King Richard the Lion Heart was in the Crusade, but he was also who signed the Magna Carta, after the death of his brother, making the United Kingdom a constitutional Monarchy.

Who does not know about the legend of Robin Hood in the Sherwood woods and the Sheriff of Nothingham?

Now, Mrs. Meghan Markle is also related through her father distantly with Elizabeth The Queen Mother, so she has also Scottish ancestry, but remember that the mother of the current Queen was not born noble.

Please check:
Family background of Meghan Markle

About her first marriage we know it was with an actor Producer Trevor Engelson and for what it has been published their wedding apparently was not a religious one but a civil ceremony happened in the Jamaica Inn Los Rios in 2011, that it lasted no more than 2 years when they decided to file out divorce.

Please check:
First marriage of Meghan Markle with Trevor Engelson

The thread is open to discuss this new chapter of the Royal British Family, to discuss the apparent changes in the standard they handle for marriage other people and remembering the Abdication of Edward VIII in 1936 precisely for his decision to marry a divorced American Lady of New Jersey: Wallis Simpson.

Nevertheless is good to recall that Wallis was twice divorced and at least her first marriage with Mr Spencer was a religious sacrament. The couple married on 8 November 1916 at Christ Episcopal Church in Baltimore.

Prince Harry to marry a Divorced American lady and Church of England is Fine

By the way Meghan would not be the first African descendant to be in the Royal family of England, Queen Charlotte was too and she is ancestor of Queen Victoria and then of the current Royals.

Please check:

H.R.H Charlotte of England, the Black Queen

Of course H.R.H Prince Charles has reacted with enthusiasm over these news, logically since it helps him a lot to fix the moral objections that many people have about him as a future monarch for his marriage with the divorced H.R.H Duchess of Cornwall Camilla and his own divorce with H.R.H. Princess of Walles Diana for his adultery with that woman along so many years during his previous marriage.

John Lackland, King of England is your second cousin 28 times removed.

We are all related and it is not rare to have royals in your bloodline it is more like everyone who has european ancestry most likely do have.

Cool. she has more Royal blood in her than Harry..

Fortunately, this marriage is irrelevant. It's a throwaway branch of the "Windsor" tree.

As for Charles openly cheating on Diana within the royal marriage, in my view, THAT eclipses everything else. He should not be king.

My family is of northern European (English, Dutch, Scots, Welsh, Irish, German, and French), and Mediterranean (Sicilian/Italian/Greek) descent. Super old church records from both areas have more than hinted at above the blanket relations with high ranked nobility dating back to Charlemagne, and a couple of his sons... Above the Blanket--illegitimate children.

Which means, of course, absolutely nothing. But it sure is interesting. My dad, and one of his cousins, did much of the work while stationed in Europe while in the US military.

She's not going to be a princess. Maybe a duchess. It's sent the Daily fail readers into meltdown.

What makes people more upset?
That she is black,
That they are happy,
That the prince is no longer single?

I don't know, but I wish them the best. You only have one life, screw what everyone else thinks!!!

She will be the wife of a Prince, a Royal Highness, so generically speaking her rank correspond to a Princess by Marriage.

Her specific role in the British Kingdom will be determine by the Queen most likely is going to be of a Duchess.

There is no contradiction what so ever between the two statements. H.R.H. Prince Harry will be a Duke, but his rank in the nobility will be always Prince.

Part of the difference from 1936 is that British society in general is more accustomed to the existence of divorce than it used to be. It is no longer quite the same scandal.
Incidentally, the Abdication of 1936 is the reason why the Queen will never abdicate herself. She remembers it as a traumatic event.

Woke up this morning and my feed was all blown up, some how I'm not that interested in a bunch of super Rich ppl who on occasion plays dress up, that's unless they affect politics, like some yrs back when Prince Harry went to Jamaica to woo Jamaicans back from dumping the Commonwealth

his personal touch did won them over, he met with Rastas, hangout with Usain Bolt and seemed genuinely at home with the locals,.. operation charm offensive worked, they tabled the move from becoming a Republic.

From what I've learnt about this Meghan chick, she seemed to be deep into helping others, NGO work and all.

Incidentally about two or so month ago , less known but a somewhat Coming To America fantasy, an Ethiopian prince
grandson of the late Emperor Haile Selassie ,apparently dated for sometime before he told her his heritage.
For more of this story goto.
Daily mail
American woman married Ethiopian Prince.
Until 1974 the Ethiopian monarchy appeared to be the oldest in the world with claims of going all the way back to Solomon and Sheba.
I read that Queen Elizabeth, got to see the Ark of the Covenant while on a visit to Ethiopia.
