CBC News Interview: ‘Times have changed’: Why Prince Harry’s girlfriend Meghan Markle could fit right in with the Royal Family

Prince Harry at the Invictus Games in London, 2014

My latest conversation with CBC News about Prince Harry and his relationship with actress Meghan Markle.

Here’s an excerpt from the interview:

“When Charles married again in 2005, it was to Camilla Parker Bowles, who had been involved with Charles for years and divorced from her first husband a decade earlier.

“That’s been widely seen as a softening of attitudes toward members of the Royal Family marrying divorcees,” says Harris.

Other royal families in Europe are “even more relaxed about the whole question of who’s a suitable spouse for royalty,” says Harris, noting, for example, that Crown Prince Haakon of Norway married a single mother.

Harris, whose book Raising Royalty: 1,000 years of Royal Parenting was just released, sees whomever Harry marries as being part of a streamlined Royal Family, a move that was signalled particularly in the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations in 2012.”
