CHARLOTTE, N.C. – It’s every little girl’s dream.
An American set to truly marry her Prince Charming.
“We’re delighted and thrilled at Harry’s choice,” said Nicholas Rose, President of the British Club of Charlotte.
Rose is a Brit himself and is also married to an actress. He says the fact that Prince Harry’s bride-to-be is also biracial, and went through a divorce, shows the monarchy is changing with the times.
“I love it, I think it’s going to shake them up a little bit,” said Rose.
Ivy Robinson is a Charlotte-based wedding planner to the stars. She recently arranged Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s wedding, and says she can’t wait to see what the next royal wedding looks like.
“I think this will be trendier, ruffle some British feathers,” Robinson said. “Throw some of the American edge into it.”
But what everyone wants to know is what will Meghan Markle wear?
“She has a beautiful silhouette, she’s going to show off that body,” said CJ Bostrim, owner of J Majors Bridal Boutique in Dilworth.
She expects the dress will be classic with a twist. Perfect for a modern-day fairy tale.
