Apparently, the British prince Harry is not going to claim the English throne - he officially announced his engagement with the American divorced actress Megan Markl. The message that the youngest of the sons of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana will take place in the foreseeable future has been published by the press service of the Kensington Palace.
It is already more or less known when the marriage will take place: it is scheduled for the spring of the future, 2018. The editors find out that this is sure to be extremely covered not only by the British, but also by all world media: the broadcast of the wedding of the elder brother Harry, Prince William, and Kate Middleton, was bought by dozens of television channels and attracted the attention of millions of people around the world.
American actress Megan Markle is best known for her role in the television series Force Majeure. She is 36 years old (Prince Harry is two years younger than her, he is 34). For two years - from 2011 to 2013 - she was married to director Trevor Engelson.
Recall that in the recent history of the British royal family there was already a case when the crown prince (although he was the first in the queue) married a divorced American. This was the elder brother of the future King George VI, Edward. The marriage was considered scandalous, and soon after accession to the throne, Edward III abdicated the throne.
