Divorce, double race, sibling love
For the British royal family, Megan's identity has definitely brought a lot of excitement.
In fact, before she knew Harry, she had been married and divorced. She is not only British, she also has a bi-ethnic identity, her mother is African-American, this is the first time the British royal family to meet the members of African descent to join. And, Megan and Harry are three-year-old siblings, though nothing to fuss over Harry's father Charlie and Pamela's affair.
These background, but also make the British media on Megan's report harsh to the extent of unfairness, but there are some historical factors in it.
The British royals were married to the Americans and had to go back to 1937, when Edward VIII married American Wallis Simpson (Simpson). The marriage ended in divorce, became a national scandal, the public and the media can not accept such a result, Edward VIII was forced to give up the throne.
60 years later, British media are still hostile to Prince Harry's relationship with Megenmarker.
She and Prince Harry in 2016 as a couple in public place, two people have been closely monitored by the media, the British media to Megan's report is full of ridicule and attack, Prince Harry could not help but a rare statement, criticized the British media to Markle's report too much emphasis on race, Hinted that the British media for the half of the African descent of Megan, deliberately with racist tone of the report.
Megan herself is relatively light on media attacks, she implicitly said in an interview with vanity world, "I'm surprised that many things in life have changed in the instant, but I still have a solid support system around me." "She didn't forget to thank her boyfriend for coming forward," of course, the boyfriend is also a very important source of support. 」
Harry, an atypical prince, encounters an atypical top, and others feel that they are, and for them, they just understand each other.
Not a typical vase, Megan has her own political voice.
As we look more closely at what Megan has done in the past, we will find that she has long been a vocal voice for women's political representation and female self cultivation. She was not afraid to express her views on politics when she was interviewed, and to talk about feminist practice.
"Almost every script has this description of the female role of the first appearance: Rachel walks into the room around a towel." And I just said one word to that script: No. When you are at a certain stage of self cultivation, you will begin to reject such requests directly. "Megan confessed on the show.

"I think the dialogue on feminism should begin at an earlier stage of education and we should treat ourselves as we treat our best friends." Even a small generosity, grace, and empathy can change many things at a wider level. 」
"Those who dislike women often worry that once women have more power, the situation will get out of hand." But the truth is, when you empower women, it means empowering an entire community. 」
Megan became a modern, adventurous, assertive, courageous female symbol, and after the marriage was announced, the media at last began to give her a more balanced story, and people were excited about her impending admission to the British Royal family--she even became a new fashion icon.
