Love won

Dear Editor,

Re: Love remains one of the most powerful forces for change

This wedding brought up some hateful, racist sentiments from white commentators regarding the marriage of Prince Harry to Ms. Markle. 

The media jumped on it and the whole thing became a circus of sorts. 

Little do people know, the nobility of Europe, have many Black members from history.

Queen Charlotte, Queen Victoria’s grandmother had African blood, members of the Prussian nobility had Black roots and others. 

In the end, the love of the occasion overcame the negativity. Good on Harry for standing his ground, may the newlyweds go forth and prosper!
