Okay, I’m sold.

Here’s the one thing these two connected on that led to “date number two,” according to Meghan. This stuff isn’t unimportant—as the reverend said, Love is Powerful, and especially now we need an example of inclusivity, authentic connection, and empathy.

Okay, I’m in love. Here’s the one thing they connected on that “got date 2,” according to Meghan. #beofbenefit!

6 Reasons Meghan Markle couldn’t have been Royalty—& why she’s won the hearts of a new generation.

“In a time of tribalism and separation, it was a clear move toward an integrated modern future from the oldest of houses. Seated directly opposite Queen Elizabeth II was Ms. Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland, the descendant of slaves on plantations in the American South…” ~ @nytimes “… Dr. King was right, we must discover love. The redemptive power of love. And when we do that, we will make of this old world a new world…” ~ “the Most Rev. Michael Bruce Curry, the presiding bishop of the American Episcopal Church, delivered a searing, soaring 13-minute speech, imploring Christians to put love at the center of their spiritual and political lives…” #nytimes ????

Only a generation or two ago, only a decade or two ago…this should not have been:

1. Those born into slavery were among her ancestors.

2. She’s biracial.

3. She’s American, and (kinda) Canadian, and certainly not nobility of British extraction.

4. She’s divorced. Only (less than) 80 years ago a would-be King abdicated so that he could marry his divorced love—he could not become king if he had married her.

5. She’s a working actress, a feminist, she’s unrestrainedly sexual—her tasteful, sexless sexy scenes on mainstream TV aren’t obstacles, they only confirm her precedent-breaking modernity and independence.


6. She’s a “commoner.”

This all sounds like a modern fairy tale, but their love is truly redirecting a nation’s historical karma or inertia, here. Let us celebrate this union of love—it’s all too easy to be cynical.
