A beautifully illustrated souvenir guide to celebrate Prince Harry’s engagement to Meghan Markle
To mark the engagement of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle, Pitkin is delighted to publish this very special new royal souvenir in celebration of a truly modern love story. Born on September 15, 1984, Harry, christened Henry Charles Albert David, is the second child of Prince Charles and Princess Diana and younger brother to Prince William. The fourth grandchild of the Queen and Prince Philip, he is currently fifth in line to the British throne. His bride-to-be Rachel Meghan Markle, known simply as Meghan, was born on August 4, 1981 and grew up in Los Angeles. She is the daughter of Thomas Markle, an Emmy-award-winning lighting director of Irish and Dutch descent, and Doria Ragland, an African American psychotherapist and yoga teacher. As an accomplished screen actress, Meghan fulfilled her childhood dream of being a television star. This is the tale of how the dashing Prince met and fell in love with the beautiful American actress. Despite their differing backgrounds and career paths, the new royal couple are united in their commitment to charitable campaigns and devotion to one another. Meghan now faces a new chapter as she becomes a senior member of the Royal Family, which she will no doubt embrace with her natural charm and elegance. With lavish illustrations and some previously unseen images, this is a souvenir to cherish.
I’m currently watching the royal wedding as I’m posting this review! I’m so excited about it, so I wanted to do a royal review to celebrate on my blog.
Harry and Meghan are an amazing couple. This book tells each of their histories, as well as details about the important royal weddings of the last century (Elizabeth and Philip, Charles and Camilla, William and Catherine). There was even a section about royal engagement rings which I loved.
The one bad thing about this book, is that it was obviously written long before there were many decisions made for the wedding. Some of the facts are dated, since we have learned concrete details in the past few weeks. However, it is a great collectible for fans. It is also a nice and quick read that is easy to pick up and put down.
I’m so excited to continue to follow Harry and Meghan’s journey! Congratulations to the royal couple!
