I am excited about the Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Wedding on May 19. There are many things that I can say of why I excited about this reunion as a Black mom with biracial kids. But I will stick with just three.
3 Reasons Why This Mama Is Excited About the Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Wedding
Queen Elizabeth love for her grandkid.
She is breaking a lot of royal rules for the love of her grandchild. I can understand this kind of love and have seen it. It’s remarkable. As a mama, it is emotional to see family member who normally is certain way breakdown and show love & affection to your kids aka your heart. The Queen did not go to the her son’s second marriage to a divorcee Camila. However, she will be attending Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding. She has given the blessing for them to marry. This is actually mandatory. The first 6th in line must have the Queen’s permission. Prince Harry is the 6th in line. I feel the love conquers all here even in the royal family.
Meghan Markle is more than a pretty face.
Meghan is big on humanitarian works such as a Global Ambassador for World Vision, a UN women’s advocate and has been honored for her humanitarian works. Breaking the royal mold when it comes to to fashion, she is stylish and elegant with off the shoulder pieces and beautiful pant outfits. She is wearing what she wants to wear breaking the tradition of royal wedding engagement photos. She is supposed speaking at her wedding, which is not the norm. This soon to be Duchess is gifted, talented, smart and beautiful.
They are bring a new face to interracial love.
I am not going to lie, when I see an interracial couple. I want to give a hi-five. When I see a couple like Andy & I, I want to give them a hug. Black women marrying a white man still seems taboo or a fetish. I have seen black women question when a white man approaches them or if they are interested in them as love interest. You can see the couple and know they are in love. They show a lot of affection and have broken a few royal rules prior to getting engaged. My kids will be in an interracial relationship one day as they are biracial and they get to see our relationship and hopefully more positive interracial relationship that would represent them. There is no shame in the person you love even if they are from a different race. Love is love.
I look forward to seeing what these two have in store for their future.
