This past weekend we got to watch Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Sussex AKA Meghan Markle wed Prince Harry and have her "Fairy Tale Ending". This wedding was one that many girls dreamed of (I know I used to be apart of the “I Want to Marry Harry" fan club) and, it ended a little differently then some may have imagined BUT, it did so in THE BEST way possible. The diversity of this wedding was something unheard of for England and from this I realized that the traditional fairy tale doesn’t seem to exist anymore. In it’s place we have Women CEO’s and little girls who can now grow up dreaming that they too can be a Princess one day no matter what color they are.
Meghan Markle is the Ultimate Modern Princess and Game Changer for all the reasons listed below.
A Game Changer for Who A Royal Can Marry - Bluntly put, she’s Mixed with a Black Mom and a Divorcee. This is something the Royal Family and England were not prepared for BUT Meghan Markle is breaking down barriers and giving hope to Black and Brown and Mixed Women - Young and Old, British and Not. I’m sure it can’t be easy to step into a situation where people are judging you and watching your every move but, she’s doing it gracefully and giving HOPE to Britain’s 3% black population and even hope to people like me over in the United States.
You stand strong girl!
A Game Changer Because Even Though She Was Divorced and 36 Someone Thought She Was Good Enough. - This gives us single ladies hope, Prince Harry saw past her age and didn’t judge her for being divorced. I know one of the biggest “Problems” I have with dating is my age, as soon as I hit 30 everything got tougher because of society’s stigmas. This relationship gives me hope that there will be someone out there for me who will not look at me being 31 and automatically have certain connotations in their head about my age and things I want.
Here's to Being Thirty, Flirty, and Thriving!!
A Game Changer Because She Was a Successful Strong Woman Before Her Relationship - Sometimes it can be hard to date as a Successful, Strong, Feminist Female. There have been some shows that touch on this, one of the ones I liked surrounding this situation was the 3rd Season of UnReal. It takes a strong man to be with an even stronger woman AND she found that person.
Here’s to walking our own damn selves down the aisle ladies!
A Game Changer Because She Gives Us Hope - Hope is one of the strongest things you can hold onto in this world. Everything about Meghan Markle’s story gives me HOPE that my Fairy Tale Ending will happen when it’s supposed to. It’s not something we can rush or even plan. We have to continue to stand strong as single women and go after our dreams and goals and know that right now is not our forever. BUT we do need to do everything we can in our right now to better ourselves so that when our “Prince” does come along we’re ready.
