For Some African-americans Meghan Markle Is Cause For Celebration


– While most Americans are fast asleep before dawn on Saturday, Ishea Brown and more than a dozen of her black friends will gather around the TV set in her Seattle home to watch the biracial actress Meghan Markle marry Britain’s Prince Harry.

Brown is not a longtime devotee of all things royal, and she was not particularly interested in the House of Windsor before November. All that changed with the announcement of the wedding of the queen’s grandson to Markle, whose mother is black.

“These are things that growing up I never would have thought that we would see,” Brown, 33, said, referring to a woman with African-American heritage becoming a royal in the United Kingdom.
