1. Meghan Markle Is American
Meghan Markle is the first American to be officially engaged to a British royal. A few other firsts this bride-to-be checks off: she’s a woman of colour, divorced, a well-known actor, and was raised Catholic. Markle was just recently baptized and confirmed in the Church of England. After her wedding to Prince Harry, she will have to go through the process of becoming a citizen of the U.K.
Don’t miss these etiquette rules every member of the royal family must follow.
