25h Is Meghan Markle the American the royals needed all along? | Hadley Freeman
The Guardian
Thanks to the new Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry may well turn out to be good for Britain In the 1991 John Goodman comedy King Ralph, truly the most important work of art to grapple with what it would mean if an American joined the British royal family, the movie comes to the conclusion that a friendly American is exactly what the royals need to make them bearable. Some Brits, of course, resist this idea: “It’s an unmitigated catastrophe – this song and dance man from the colonies!” wails John Hurt to Peter O’Toole. (It is possible neither Hurt nor O’Toole considered King Ralph to be their finest hour) In the run-up to Prince Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markle, a song and dance American, the focus was entirely on what her arrival meant. And no surprise, given she is – in order of importance, in regards to her alliance with the House of Windsor – a mixed race American divorcee actress. But this always was a marriage of two narratives. It’s just that hers was so extraordinary that his, amazingly, was briefly put in the shade.

A total of 10 fragments were found beside each other. When put together, a wooden idol more than five metres high was created, one that had clearly been carved from a single, carefully smoothed plank of larch wood.

Six prime ministers from the west Balkan states and their entourages filled its vast hallways and stairwells, between tetchy meetings with EU leaders and even tetchier media performances. The western Balkans summit was supposed to be an EU charm offensive, designed to capture the hearts of the leaders of Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Kosovo. But the EU’s leaders were demonstrably distracted. From the start, Donald Trump had hijacked this summit.
