Depite their pristine and noble image, the family has been known to make headlines all over the world on multiple occasions – and not just for births of adorable new heirs to the crown. Between scandals involving extramarital affiars and tragic deaths, the royal family have been good at keeping their lives a private matter from the public. They only ever release the information they’re interested for us to know, and we’re left curious about the rest.
So when we’re cordially invited to watch the special occasions of the Windsors’ lives, it’s truly a celebratory event. No more than a day ago, the two welcomed their third baby into the world – a little Prince who has yet to be named, but is already in line to inherite the crown.
The world gathered to watch the wedding of Queen Elizabeth to Prince Philip, as they later gathered to watch the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middelton in 2011. While the idea of marrying a handsome prince and sailing off to the sunset seems like a notion fit only for a fairytale, the dream seemed closer than ever for the people of the UK, as they watched the prince marry the beautiful Kate Middleton. In fact, their wedding was the biggest televised event viewed in history.
Another anticipated royal wedding is at hand now that William’s brother, Harry, has announced his recent engagement to one Meghan Markle. It may be closer than ever, since the wedding day is rumored to take place sometime this spring. It won’t be easy living up to William and Kate’s magical day, but we’re positive it will be just as magnificant, and might even exceed every expectation. There isn’t a doubt, though, that the watchful eye of the public is very much focused on the royal family at the moment.
But who is Meghan Markle, the lucky lady who landed Prince Harry’s much coveted ring on her finger? The actress is best recognized for playing in the drama Suits, and for smaller roles in comedy movies like Horrible Bosses and Get Him to the Greek. But besides her acting career, Meghan’s life has hardly been a private matter ever since the engagement. She’ll be one of the first princesses to be American, divorced, and an actress, to ever marry a Windsor – but all this comes with a bumpy past that may be deemed unfit for a princess by some.
