Harry breaks ultimate royal taboo

Saturday, December 02, 2017

THE world is abuzz with the happy news that England's Prince Harry is set to marry Suits star Meghan Markle.

Of course, in between the tidings of joy and excited tweets, the backlash is already brewing. For many Brits, Meghan Markle is unsuitable for Prince Harry.

No, it's not because of that Hallmark movie she starred in. Meghan Markle is considered a poor match specifically because she is a bi-racial American divorcee.

Now, all of those words rankle a certain close-minded sect of British society, but it's the divorcee part that presents the biggest legal challenge to the match.

Royals aren't supposed to be allowed to marry divorcees without special dispensation. Of course, you would know that if you binge-watched Netflix's The Crown last year.
