New York, NY — That’s right ya’ll . . . Meghan Markle, is the first biracial, Jewish American, divorced actress to unite with the British royal family! In a historic announcement, Clarence House said on Monday that Prince Harry, 33, and his girlfriend, 36-year-old Markle, are engaged and will marry in the springtime.
Yes, first a black U.S. President (Barack Obama), and now this! The news comes after Harry and Markle made their initial appearance together at an official public event — the prince’s Invictus Games in Toronto — back in September. Seven days later, the item were spotted together yet again — markedly, along with Markle’s mother, Doria Radlan, a yoga instructor in Los Angeles — in a VIP box at the games’ closure ceremonies (seen below).
Prince Harry's future mother-in-law is a black woman with dreadlocks. There are no words for this kind of joy.

Markle and Harry dated for a little more than a year prior to their engagement (though the first 6 months, scarcely anyone knew!). She will make the history books as the first biracial person, the first American and the first actor to become royal duchess with the “Her Royal Highness” title. The engagement announcement too noted that Harry sought the blessing of his fiancé’s parents. Kensington Palace shared a statement from Meghan’s father (Thomas Markle) and mother (Doria Ragland): “We are incredibly happy for Meghan and Harry. Our daughter has always been a kind and loving person. To see her union with Harry, who shares the same qualities, is a source of great joy for us as parents. We wish them a lifetime of happiness and are very excited for their future together.”
This just goes to show you — that anything, ANYTHING is possible in these days and times..
