Yesterday, Mon., Nov. 28th, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement from the sunken garden of KP. They will wed in May 2018 at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle.

This is the BEST news!!! I am over the moon with happiness for them both! What a gorgeous couple they make. Their happiness just radiates...they are going to be such an awesome couple!

I must admit I am somewhat proud that Meghan is an American and she hails from my home state of California. I am looking so forward to Prince Harry's wedding. For the whole of his life, he has had a special place in my heart. May happiness forever rain down upon them.

Three cheers for the royal couple... hip hip hooray...hip hip hooray...hip hip hooray!

I know that there are some idiots out there who are quick to remind us all what happened the last time a British Royal took up with an American divorcee.   However, that was an entirely different situation.  Harry is not in line for the throne, after all (his brother William, and then William's son, George, are).  So there is really no comparison to Edward VII and Wallis Simpson and anyone trying to make such a comparison, IMO, sounds like a moron.

Also, this is not 1936 anymore.  Prince Charles, next in line to the throne is himself a divorcee and so is his current wife, Camilla Parker Bowles, the Duchess Of Cornwall.   So even if Harry was next in line after Charles, I don't see any issues about it.  Of course, since Harry is not next in line, this point is moot.

I wish all my best to Harry and Meghan.

I largely agree. Harry and Meghan have little in common with the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.

Given that the Cambridges will be having their third child between now and the wedding, the chances of Harry succeeding are pretty low. I think there would have been more controversy had William chosen to marry a divorcee, but it doesn't seem to be a major issue for Harry.

I shall be busy on Sunday. I've been asked to talk about the match on Radio Devon's breakfast programme!

I suspect they are much more rounded and mature persons than the Windsors, but really, the similarities are oddly many:
- The bride is older than the groom, who had a somewhat interrupted relationship with his mother.
- The groom is considered extremely handsome and attractive, more so than the bride.
- The bride's maternal family hails from the American South, with its troubled and hateful past and old grudges.
- The bride has chosen a career based on outward appearance (society hostess / socialite and actress).

Березы севера мне милы,
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.

Meghan Markle's ex-husband Trevor Engelson is Jewish, apparantly the great great grandson of Russian Jews who were the persecuted subjects of the Romanovs. He is also from Long Island and works as a movie producer, just like Weinstein. How long untill the royal wedding is defiled by the hashtag #metoo?

I'm happy that Harry found someone that he really loves.

At least she is merely an actress and not a former horizontale (specializing in yoga....with the saccharine patriarchy......) like Princess Sofia dite Miss Slitz of Sweden.
