The engagement of Prince Harry and the American actress meghan Markle has been officially announced from Buckingham Palace this morning. They are expected to wed in the Spring. Congratulations to both of them, and for me I think it's a breath of fresh air rather than the stuffy Royal enclosure that's kept mostly hidden from the general public..... however what are your views on this if any? Harry has always rowed his own boat where possible within the constrictions of the royal family, so it comes as no surprise that he has chosen to love and marry and potentially have children with a woman who has no connection to the royal family ...however she's recently divorced... an actress, an American, and also a different race... which means if they have children, it will be the first time (knowingly to the public anyway)...that the blood line will not be pure white.. ( personally I am excited to see the change) Now none of that would usually be of any concern to a so called Normal citizen...but in all honesty, do you think that any one or all of those things might cause problems...? People are talking about the fall of the royal family...and the beginnings of a republic... now given that the Queen and prince Philip are now in their 90's and there's little doubt that Charles (Harry's father) will be in his 70's before he becomes King... do you think that perhaps when William becomes King (which he has publicly declared he'd rather not have to be)... that he along with his brother may be the cause of the ''downfall'' of the Royal house of Windsor...and that Great Britain may then become a republic... ?
