About a month ago, my sister texted me to share a bit of spicy news. Here’s how our text chat went:
Sister:”Prince Harry is dating Jamaican sprinter Elaine Thompson. How’s that for some news!!!”
Me: Very Interesting.
Sister: (includes the link to a British article and picture)
Sister: Nice to see that. It shows he has his own sense of self. Like his mom did.
I did a little surfing on the internet and saw conflicting information. I saw that he was dating the woman who plays Rachel Zain on the TV series, Suits. So I just said forget this gossip for now. Let it be. Then I took a trip and as I was traveling through the Heathrow airport, I grabbed several newspapers before boarding my plane and what do you know… There was the new Royal couple on the cover of a UK newspaper.
Why do I love this? I think it’s obvious, but it means more if I write about it. I don’t believe anyone is better than others just because they are labeled as royal, however, the Commonwealth still exists and has influence on nations globally. Let me say that it is extremely awesome that Prince Harry is not afraid to go against the norm.
First, he is expected to date and marry someone that is in the same socio-economic status. Second, he is dating a women of color! We don’t know how far into the future he will take Meghan Markel, but even if it is for a short time, it is a bold statement to the world. I want an interracial relationship and I have no objections.
Go against the norm. Don’t be like everybody else. Prince Harry is always looked at like a bit of a rebel and now he is looking more like a man with .
