Today on May 19, 2018 Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were wed. This was a spectacular day because a “New Era,” was born. This was a “New Era,” because never before had someone in the royal family married an American, and Prince Harry married Meghan Markle who is half African American.

Lots of black people came from Texas and Arizona to witness this wedding. A black school teacher from Washington named Mesha Griffin said, “She is owning her heritage. She is going to impact history in a way we saw with Princess Diana, not in a disrespectful way. She will respectfully change the world.”

During the wedding, lots of famous people were there such as Oprah Winfrey and Serena Williams. This wedding was an important event for people widespread.

Harry arrived at the chapel on foot walking with his brother Prince William. Harry was wearing a traditional “doeskin frock coat of the Blues and Royals.” Harry walked to his place near the priest and awaited his bride. Meghan Markle arrived from a Rolls-Royce Phantom 4 with 2 pageboys. Meghan Markle wore a, “flowing train 16 feet long veil which her flower girls held up. She wore a stunning pure white, wide-necked and minimal, leaving her collarbones bare.”  They were both embraced kindly and they will probably be the bid news for a long time because they are an amazing couple and they will be remembered as the first couple to be African American and British.
