THE CALIFORNIA GIRL WHO STOLE PRINCE HARRY’S HEART
When Prince Harry of Wales took his American girlfriend, Meghan Markle, to have tea with his grandmother the Queen, avid royal watchers had a hunch that a royal wedding was not far off. That prediction came true on November 27, 2017, when the gorgeous, glamorous twosome announced their engagement to the world. As they prepare to tie the knot in a on May 19, 2018, everyone wants to know who exactly is the beautiful American who captured the heart of the most eligible bachelor in the world, the “bad boy” of the current generation of Windsors.
Born and raised in Los Angeles to a white father and an African American mother whose ancestors had been enslaved on a Georgia plantation, Meghan has proudly embraced her biracial heritage. In addition to being a star of the popular television series Suits, she is devoted to her humanitarian work—a passion she shares with Harry. Though Meghan was married once before, the Windsors have welcomed her into the tight-knit clan they call “The Firm.”
In American Princess, Leslie Carroll provides context for Harry and Meghan’s story by leading readers through centuries of Britain’s rule-breaking royal marriages, and the love matches that were never permitted to make it to the altar; followed by a never-before-seen glimpse into the life of the woman bringing the royal family into the twenty-first century with her dazzling, thoroughly modern romance with Prince Harry.
