WELCOME TO THE FIRM!
As the clock counts down to the wedding of the year, we can only imagine how Ms Meghan Markle, formerly of Los Angeles, California, is beginning to feel. On Saturday at roughly 11.50am, three billion of us around the world will watch as she steps out of her carriage to marry into the world’s most famous family in 700-year-old St George’s Chapel, Windsor.
From then on, she will become one of the most talked-about women in the world, her fame surpassing anything that Hollywood could ever offer. For becoming a royal is her biggest role yet, and her life will change for ever.
Many view the Royal Family – nicknamed ‘The Firm’ by Prince Philip – as a real-life soap opera and, in the days of Princess Diana’s feuding with Charles and the antics of cheeky Sarah, Duchess of York, it was. But Diana and Sarah were young brides, totally unprepared for the rigours of royal life, and rebelled against it – with disastrous results.
At 36, Meghan has made her own way in life. She’s had a successful career, a good education and experience of marriage and divorce. She is going into this with her eyes wide open, and we expect her to be nothing short of her usual poised, gorgeous self on Saturday (see page 36).
We think she will be a terrific addition to the royals, and we’ll be watching with our (fake) tiaras come Saturday. Follow us on Twitter @RevealMag and Instagram @RevealMagOfficial.
