Describing her ancestry, Markle said: "My dad is Caucasian and my mom is African American. I'm half black and half white. ... I have come to embrace [this and] say who I am, to share where I'm from, to voice my pride in being a strong, confident, mixed-race woman." Her mother is descended from Africans enslaved in Georgia, and her father from Dutch, English, and Irish settlers. Among her father's ancestors are Captain Christopher Hussey, King Robert I of Scotland, Sir Philip Wentworth and his wife, Mary Clifford, a descendant of King Edward III of England.

But unless she's had a paternity test, who knows?

He faked some photos of himself in a net cafe and sold them to tabloids for over $100k.

Royal family responded to that same way Trump did when his doctor released his private medical data to tabloids.

These orders come straight from the queen, who is very pissy about things and never forgets and never forgives.

Fergie is also upset she can't go, but Liz hates her.

"Didn't aristocracy used to marry aristocracy?"

As of last month, Harry is now 6th in the line of succession, after Charles, William, George, Charlotte and new Louis.

Over time the distance from the throne of their offspring (if any, she's nearly 40) will become greater. So the chance of black commoners ascending the throne is fairly remote.

When someone who is the crown royal marries a commoner as happened in the past it's a much more serious issue and that's what has led sometimes to having to give up the crown and even any royal status at all.

I have a cousin that married into the royal family, in the line of succession but really far down. He had to move to England and hasn't been heard from since, it's kind of like if your relative joins a cult.

I'm not equating "aristocracy" with "royalty". There's only one king but there are a lot more nobles.

Nobles used to wed other nobles, as a way to gain / preserve wealth and titles. They'd fuck commoners but marrying them... the smart ones would not do it.

Prince Edward VIII was maybe the most recent English royal that had to abdicate?

Worldwide, Princess Mako will have to abdicate soon based on her marriage plans. Which is weird, I had thought Hirohito had to be the last royal by the terms of the surrender treaty. However that was the US position, but Britain specifically refused to go in with the US on that one, not wanting to set any precedent where any royal line could be terminated based on a war settlement. So the Japanese kept their royals. Until one married wrong!

Like this son of a minor nobleman who really knew how things work: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Marshal,_1st_Earl_of_Pembroke

"The king gave William the large royal estate of Cartmel in Cumbria, and the keeping of Heloise, the heiress of the northern barony of Lancaster. It may be that the king expected him to take the opportunity to marry her and become a northern baron, but William seems to have had grander ambitions for his marriage."

"During the old king's last days he had promised the Marshal the hand and estates of Isabel de Clare (c.1172–1220), but had not completed the arrangements. King Richard however, confirmed the offer and so in August 1189, at the age of 43, the Marshal married the 17-year-old daughter of Richard de Clare".

Descendants of William Marshal and Isabel de Clare: William is ancestor to the last Plantagenet kings, Edward IV through Richard III, and all English monarchs from Henry VIII and afterward.

Hm, her dad is a homeless guy in Mexico apparently?

No wonder he needed the money from the staged photos.

He went to a low quality charity hospital when he had his heart attack last week because he has no money. He goes to internet cafes to read articles about his daughter because he can't afford internet service or a cell phone.

Hm, he buys lottery tickets and once won $750,000, which he says he spent all of it on college and acting lessons for Meghan.

Once you're wedded, you're family. To a tighter degree than drug lords relate to each other.

Mi casa, su casa. RESPECT if they go there and beyond.

Respect is key. Fergie offended but backed down and learned her place. She is still disowned forever though.

Di disrespected and wouldn't back down. That is why Lizzie had her offed.

You don't fuck with the tribe of Satan.
