Description of this Book

A behind-the-scenes look into the life of Meghan Markle and her romance with Prince Harry-a dishy, delightful must-read filled with exclusive insight for anyone obsessed with the Royal Family.The California Girl Who Stole Prince Harry's HeartWhen Prince Harry of Wales took his American girlfriend, Meghan Markle, to have tea with his grandmother the queen, avid royal watchers had a hunch that a royal wedding was not far off. And that prediction came true on November 27, 2017, when the gorgeous, glamorous twosome announced their engagement to the world. As they prepare to tie the knot in a stunning ceremony that will be unprecedented in royal history, everyone wants to know who exactly is the beautiful American who captured the heart of the sexy ginger who has not only been the bad boy of the current generation of Windsors, but the most eligible bachelor in the worldBorn and raised in Los Angeles to a white father of Dutch, English, and Irish descent and an African American mother whose ancestors had been enslaved on a Georgia plantation, Meghan has proudly embraced her biracial heritage. In addition to being a star of the popular television series Suits , she is devoted to her humanitarian work-a passion she shares with Harry. Though Meghan was married once before, Prince Harry is a modern royal, and the Windsors have welcomed her into the tight-knit clan they call The Firm. Even a generation ago, it would have been unthinkable, as well as impermissible, for any member of Great Britain's royal family to consider marrying someone like Meghan. Professional actresses were considered scandalous and barely respectable. And the last time an American divorcee married into the Royal Family, it provoked a constitutional crisis!In American Princess, Leslie Carroll provides context to Harry and Meghan's romance by leading readers through centuries of Britain's rule-breaking royal marriages, as well as the love matches that were never permitted to make it to the altar; followed by a never-before-seen glimpse into the little-known life of the woman bringing the Royal Family into the 21st century; and her dazzling, thoroughly modern romance with Prince Harry.
