It looks like they have the support of the Royal family and are set to be engaged in the Spring of 2018. Queen Elizabeth said she’s “delighted for the couple”.
There are things about their relationship that break tradition but most of which have been done before. For starters, Meghan was born and raised in the United States. To become a British citizen you have to live in the U.K. for 5 years which means she likely won’t be able to use the title “Her Royal Highness” until that time. Meghan is also divorced but she isn’t the first royal to have been divorced. If you’ve watched “The Crown” on Netflix, you know that the Queen’s uncle, Edward VIII, abdicated the throne in 1936 to marry and American woman who had also been divorced.
Meghan is 3 years older than Harry and she is giving up a lot to move to England including quitting her job on the TV show, “Suits”.
