"Because she's an American, Markle automatically feels like one of us. She's older than Harry (who she's publicly noted is also a feminist); she's from a mixed-race background; and she's (gasp!) divorced. She worked her way to a successful acting career and has an entrepreneurial spirit that led her to launch her own lifestyle site, The Tig. This is a girl who was fighting for gender equality at age 11and has spoken on the issue at the U.N. She is basically ticking off modern-princess boxes faster than we can come up with them.
But then there's that pesky rub: She's had to give a lot of this up in order to marry Harry."
