Descripción

A behind-the-scenes look into the life of Meghan Markle and her romance with Prince Harry—a dishy, delightful must-listen filled with exclusive insights for anyone obsessed with the Royal Family.

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 stunning ceremony on May 19, 2018, that will be unprecedented in royal history, people are clamoring to know more about the beautiful American who captured Prince Harry's heart.

Born and raised in Los Angeles to a white father of German, English, and Irish descent 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, Prince Harry is a modern royal, and the Windsors have welcomed her into the tight-knit clan they call "The Firm." Even a generation ago, it would have been unthinkable, as well as impermissible, for any member of Great Britain's royal family to consider marrying someone like Meghan. Professional actresses were considered scandalous and barely respectable. And the last time an American divorcee married into the Royal Family, it provoked a constitutional crisis!

In American Princess, Leslie Carroll provides context to Harry and Meghan's romance by leading listeners through centuries of Britain's rule-breaking royal marriages, as well as the love matches that were never permitted to make it to the altar; followed by a never-before-seen glimpse into the little-known life of the woman bringing the Royal Family into the 21st century; and her dazzling, thoroughly modern romance with Prince Harry.

  • (5/5)
    The love story of Meghan and Prince Harry begins decades before their meeting when they fell head-over-heels in love, almost at first site. It’s a story rich in detail of their respective lives and concludes a few months before their wedding. While most know of the story of Prince Harry who lived in life in the public eye since birth, readers learn of Markle’s - her parents, beliefs, upbringing, education, career, and how her ethnicity has shaped her. She seems like a remarkable and lovely young woman – intelligent, kind, talented - with a gentle spirit, a perfect balance to Prince Harry, the rebellious wild child who is more Spencer – like his beloved mother, Princess Diana - than Windsor. Meghan’s father has sometimes been portrayed negatively in the press, but he is instrumental in helping shape his daughter’s view of herself as both black and white in a world full of prejudice. In school when Meghan must check a box for her ethnicity, and has only the choice of White or Black, she’s unable to do so. To select one or the other would be to deny either her mother or her father. Of this incident, her father will tell the young girl, "next time, draw your own box."
