Who is prince dating right now
"It's very striking for there to be an announcement of who a senior member of the Royal Family is dating, because in the past that hasn't been the convention." If the relationship is serious, and Meghan and Harry end up walking down the aisle, it will signal another subtle shift for the House of Windsor, which has been trying to put a more modern face on the monarchy.
"If Harry were to marry Meghan, it would show how far the Royal Family has come in its willingness to embrace spouses who are not from the English upper class and to put a higher premium on love and compatibility than on suitability according to an archaic standard," says Sally Bedell Smith, an author whose biography of Harry's father, Prince Charles, was just released.

She's also American, which hasn't always gone down that well with the royals. "Times have changed from the days when Edward VIII had to abdicate in order to keep the American divorcee [Wallis Simpson] he loved.
It is no longer a problem to be either," says Penny Junor, U. When Charles married again in 2005, it was to Camilla Parker Bowles, who had been involved with Charles for years and divorced from her first husband a decade earlier.
And for me, they must," the Daily Telegraph reported.
Prince Harry reportedly met Meghan Markle last year in Toronto, where the American actress has been based while filming for the television series Suits.

Even some of the more restrained media outlets drew attention to the Toronto-based Markle's first semi-official appearance in public with the fifth in line to the throne.
She's also worked with the charity One Young World, which looks to inspire young leaders.
