Meghan’s school toasts its most famous alumna
LOS ANGELES: With a choreographed dance routine and plenty of British and American flags, students at the Los Angeles school attended by American actress Meghan Markle saluted their most famous alumna on Tuesday, days before she is to wed Britain’s Prince Harry.
Students at the private all-girls Catholic Immaculate Heart High School and Middle School gathered in a grassy courtyard in the shadow of the famed white Hollywood sign to toast Markle with glasses of sparkling lemonade and roar with approval.
Many students said they were inspired by Markle, who has described herself as an activist, humanitarian and feminist.
“Just the fact that she’s done so many great things in our world and that now she’s marrying Prince Harry - marrying a prince from a different country, and she’s not royal, it’s, like, such an honor to do that,” said Ashley Stoneburner, 12, in the sixth grade.
Markle, 36, graduated from Immaculate Heart in 1999. The independent school of about 670 total high school and middle school students was founded in 1906.
