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.”
