Surprising no one, His Royalty Highness of Hotness and British Things announced his engagement to girlfriend, American actress and humanitarian Meghan Markle on Monday. And y'all, he proposed to her while she was making chicken. Take notes everyone: Lawry's doesn't just make your food taste better, it fosters a romance for the ages.
Now I've now I've never really been that interested in the royals before. I mean, Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton seem lovely and about as dry as an English tea biscuit. So why do I care now? I'll let Issa Rae take this one:
I've long predicted that Prince Harry, the wild child of Kensington Palace, was down for the swirl and he proved me right. He and Meghan seem genuinely in love, and now melanin will officially be entering the royal bloodline. Can you imagine The Temptations Christmas album echoing through the palace or Meghan showing the Queen how to make slammin' collard greens? Because I totally am.
Can you imagine Cinderella as a black woman? I always have but now there will actually be a black woman in a crown (Shoutout to Ariana Austin who married an Ethopian prince in September). Black Girl Royal Magic has a beautiful ring to it.
