Million Dollar American Princesses: Meghan Markle
1 x 60'
How did Prince Harry and Meghan Markle meet? How is the actress changing the face of the Royal family? How will they change her? As another American princess enters the British aristocracy, compare Meghan’s story to other actresses and heiresses who crossed the Atlantic to marry into European nobility, such as Grace Kelly and Rita Hayworth. What are the similarities she will encounter – and what are the differences? What does this Royal marriage have to tell us about the way the British Royal family has changed? And what does it tell us about the way we have all changed - in terms of our attitudes to class, race, acceptability, tolerance and intolerance? It’s a modern royal fairytale that is as much about love as it is about the monarchy’s new attitude.
