Prince Harry Was ONLY Allowed To Marry Meghan Because She Was Biracial?!

As an outsider joining the Royal family, Meghan Markle faced more scrutiny and criticism than almost anyone else on the world’s stage in recent years. Much of it felt like a subtly racist reaction to the fact she was a biracial woman (and an American one at that) marrying into a very traditional aristocratic British family.

But according to an upcoming book, the Suits star’s biracial identity may actually have been the only thing which kept her from being rejected by The Firm!

Lady Colin Campbell, in her new book Meghan and Harry: The Real Story, argues Prince Harry “wouldn’t have been allowed to marry” an actress from the US if she’d been a white woman.

Huh. How’s that exactly??

The author is known for her best-selling 1992 biography of Princess DianaDiana in Private: The Princess Nobody Knows, which at the time was met with incredulity — though much of what she wrote was proven true later.

In this book, Lady C claims Queen Elizabeth looked at Meghan’s biracial identity as a bridge to the future for the fam, an addition which, according to an excerpt obtained by DailyMail.com, “made the monarchy both reflective and representative of multicultural, multiracial Britain in a way that a white California-born actress who had been a cast member of a popular television series could never have.”

We mean, she’s not wrong. And who cares if it upsets the old racists, right? Screw ’em.

However, Her Majesty’s motives may have been a little on the cynical side, per Lady C, who writes about how making the Royals seem more modern gave them a bit more protection against being dismissed by the government:

“The Queen, who is well known to be a wit, said to a friend, ‘Mr Corbyn will find it much more difficult to get rid of us now that Meghan’s in the family.’”

Hmm. The Queen is one of the only public figures we actually can believe is playing 4-D chess. She’s one smart cookie. Sorry, biscuit?

Lady C says another source told her everything else about the match was doomed — her nationality, her career — but her race was actually “welcomed” by the Queen:

“As a prince once told me, ‘Had Meghan not been a woman of colour, they would never have allowed the marriage. It was the only thing that was unreservedly in her favour.’”

How fascinating! Do YOU buy it??
