Meghan’s school toasts its most fa­mous alumna

Times of Oman - - WORLD -

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.
