  3. Spun Gold:

    When the royal family was writing these blueprints for royal brides, Meghan couldn’t have been further from their original idea, it was blonde, English roses from aristocratic families. [Harry’s older brother] William bent that rule by marrying a girl from a much more middle-class family. Britain's Prince Harry poses with Meghan Markle in the Sunken Garden of Kensington Palace, London, on Nov. 27, 2017. (Reuters) And Harry is taking it a stage further… History proves with the most recent royal wives of Windsor that if you don’t stay in your lane, you can fall down. Diana became the star and that marriage didn’t work. Fergie was fun, free loving and a breath of fresh air. But that didn’t work.
