I didn't plan to watch it but did anyway. The whole thing was kind of bizarre. I liked the idea of incorporating some of Meghan's culture but they went overboard. Firstly, the weird screeching before and after the ceremony from some group they invited was hilarious. The preacher they had speak was absolutely dreadful, you could visibly see the embarrassment on the faces of the royal family and it didn't seem like he had anything prepared or followed the script. The gospel choir was lovely though.

It seemed from the comments online that the Yanks loved it but the Brits disliked it (don't blame them tbh). Meghan herself looked absolutely beautiful but I hate all the faux "inclusion" or "feminism". Stop trying to pretend it's something it's not. It's such a carefully planned move from the royal family to try to "modernise" themselves and make it seem like Harry has settled down and matured from his schoolboy behaviour. He's a man with a scandalous history, pretending the royal family is now suddenly "woke" because he's marrying a white-passing mixed race girl who obsessively straightens her hair is laughable.

No. 250860

As a mixed race British woman myself - I liked the wedding it was intimate and harry looked besotted.

However I don’t think Megan White passes… she just blows her hair out? She has curly hair, I have curly hair and the same tone skin as her. We both look more like our black parents and we identify as biracial because it’s the correct thing to do.

I dislike it when African Americans claim she is African American and I GET there is the one drop rule bullshit there and the slavery drop shit and all that. But it’s dangerous to say she is African American because she is not what the typical black woman looks like. Reason why there is barely any dark skinned singers, models ect and biracials take the place because of the light skin thing. Saying biracials are the same is just… it is harmful to the black community I personally think.

Plus when Megan and Harry have kids we all know those won’t be black at all. They won’t even be mixed. It’ll be like Halle berry’s kids where they’ve got blonde hair and basically look white except red hair with harry. Quadroons or so they’re called. But I just say they’re white. It’s like getting juice you dialute with water the less you have the less stronger it’ll be and more juice the stronger. The royals aren’t arsed with a mixed woman in toe because their blood line will continue to be white anyway. Let’s be realistic here.

I was only happy that they're getting married so this shit can finally stop appearing in my news feeds.

No what I’m saying is that it’s unfair that some random American is granted citizenship for marrying some idiot from the Royal Family that no one cares about, when other immigrants have to wait at least 5 years before applying.

I understand she hasn’t married him for citizenship, but it’s not right that she hasn’t even followed the citizenship requirements that everyone else has to follow.

Nice try but I'm French. There are many people of Portuguese, Spanish and Italian ancestry here.

In France most people will assume she's either of North African ancestry, or mixed Black/White. Where are you from?

I think the point was to take a person that was black or brown, whatever, for public brownie points. I don't care that a prince is marrying a black woman, I have nothing against it, but he is probably marrying her because she's black and they did a good thing because it turned out to be a nice publicity stunt. Being a royalty is business so they calculate everything.

"Some kind of POC who might be part black maybe??" by definition isn't black, though. It's just brown or mixed race, and it should be classified as such. This isn't an all-inclusive club.
If you don't come from two black parents, or if no one actually thinks of you as black with pretty much no mixture/ambiguity in daily life, it's just asinine and inappropriate to insist you are black(tm).

I'm not black but I understand your sentiment. She doesn't look fully European but overall she fits better looks-wise in a group of Europeans than in a group a Sub-Saharan Africans. When you take this into consideration it seems pretty silly to call her black.

America has a history of racial segregation based on the one drop rule so that's likely why people have a tendency to see people like her as black. In the times of segregation she would have legally been a black woman, and it's this view that still lingers nowadays. I agree that it's stupid.

Why should I care about rich assholes who don't do anything useful in their lives? Besides the queen who actually did help during WW2 I mean. And also, why do I always see people on twitter say this marriage is a good thing for racial representation and feminism when we're talking about a rich and powerful family who couldn't be anymore privileged than they are if they tried? Worst part is that it's actual SJWs who say shit like this even though the mere concept of royal families goes against everything they usually believe in.

Although I kind of feel sorry for the couple because I know I personally would hate to see my wedding being so public. It must suck to not have a private life sometimes.

>She could definitely pass for a European, especially someone from the Mediterranean.
Do any of the people who use the "that person looks Mediterranean" argument ever went to the south of Europe? Not talking about you in this case but I see a lot of Americans who never went to Europe say things like this on other websites. She could easily pass for a North African maybe, speaking as one, but not for a European from pretty much any country or region. To be honest though I can see why some people wouldn't guess she's part black, but he really doesn't look like she's just white.

>>250909

Not really related to the topic here but I don't get why I see a lot of mixed race people say they're only black (just an example, could be anything) instead of saying they're BOTH black and white. Is it because of context or it's just shorter to say or there's another reason? I know it's actually something in the USA when you have to do some paperwork, the one drop rule.

I'm European and I've been to the south many times, yes. She doesn't pass for 100% white but there's no way I would have guessed she was half black. Anyway, it's irrelevant to the wedding. I just don't like that they're pushing this idea that the royal family are now modern and inclusive because Harry is marrying a woman with tanned skin and thick hair. People are freaking out that he's marrying a "black" girl when she's half white and seems to put a lot of effort into making herself look white.

Her dress looked ill-fitting. The facric seemed way to thick, but it probably couldve looked really good if it wouldve fit her better (image related). Her hair looked undone.. that fucking hair strain.

It was cute that you could see how emotional Harry got. Im not sure about her though. It felt like she is less into him, than in a usual relationship and seems to fake a lot (she is an actress in the end). But I mean fuck it. If I had the chance of marrying a prince and marry into the royal family, I would to.
But it could also stem from nervousness about being the centre of attention in the eye of the public that makes her looks stiff and cold.

I guess you always have to consider the circumstances.
He is scandalous for a royal family member. And one of high standing (regarding the line of succession). There are other rules for royal family member.

Wasnt there this guy that wanted to marry a specific women, but because she was protestant he had to refrain from all of his royal family privileges? It was in the 60s or something though.
And I mean, even Princess Di was deemed "scandalous" in the eye of the royal family (and the queen).

NAYRT, but give it a rest. Stop trying to tell black people what they should and shouldn't feel about issues that affect them and their own people, especially if you yourself are not black. Stop trying to force us to accept others when even you wouldn't. Multiple white people ITT are making it a point to talk about how non-white and not white passing she is, but you're only yelling at black people with this "S-Stop gatekeeping" rubbish.

My boyfriend's white. If I have kids with him, they wouldn't be black. It's not a big deal, it's just facts. Only you're getting twisted up about this. Also, if you honestly think being black is solely defined by facing racism, that's fucking sad and pretty racist in itself.

Harry was never relevant to the crown.

Old motherfuckin' planes, and the one that went down was built in '79.

Your choices and way of life are not the only way. Just because you did something, doesn’t mean everyone else should do it too.

And I wouldn’t be hurt if a family member I don’t know didn’t invite me to the biggest wedding of 2018. It doesn’t make them a bad person, it just means their values and perspective is different than yours.

Stop talking about things you know nothing about. Someone who didn't grow up with her HALF siblings and who talk shit about her to the media has no obligation to invite them to her wedding. I haven't heard them say a nice thing about her. You choose your friends, not your family. Anyway, they're American and have no class. They've been trying to milk as much money and media attention from this event as possible by staging photos and publishing nasty books and haven't done anything decent with their infamy. They would have been a huge embarrassment to the royal family who are very private and have had years of training to carry themselves in a certain way.

I haven't heard anyone complain about her being divorced but definitely the first two.

There aren't many people worldwide that admire the Americans, they're usually seen as rude, aggressive, uncultured and idiotic and usually for good reason. Once again, someone from the royal family marrying an American would be a big deal but I think Meghan is a very classy lady.

Her being biracial and American don't really stand out because she's pretty pale for a mixed race girl and carries herself well. She's just passable enough for the very traditional royal family and just "exotic" enough for it to be a little exciting for some people.

She invited her friends and her castmates from Suits (the tv show she was on). That counts.

I guess we differ because I am a nice person and I invited all my extended family to my wedding because it made them happy and brought everyone together and didn't cause family arguments.
>>251436 Never not been invited to a wedding. No one in my family would ever be rude enough to leave off their siblings or cousins. It is just plain rude.

Are you serious? Nobody thinks you're a nice person.

We have very different definitions of nice, anon.

Hahahaha certainly no one thinks that YOU are a nice person. I can say that much for sure!

you don't even know who they are. There's been like 4+ anons telling you off today. There's only been one anon sperging about Meghan not inviting her estranged family.

No. 251553

>>251550
And they, or you don't know who I am. So what's your point?

No. 251554

Why is everyone sperging in every thread?
Stop infighting and stop insulting each other. None of you know each other, and when you finally get over yourselves 12 hours later you'll never know which anon you argued with from the next and carry on with the next topic of the day.

I don't know when we started getting this militant about opinions but I assure you this is all unimportant shit.

Agreed. I don’t know anyone who even cares about this stupid wedding anyway.

lmao so true

just stopping in to say that her dress and styling was horrible. it feels like they were given a crap budget and tried to make the best of it, but that 'simplistic' givenchy gown didn't fit her figure right at all. looked too loose, fabric was horrible, and looked like a David's Bridal clearance item. just awful.

really disappointing bc what with all the racist bullshit thrown at them/her for her being biracial, you'd think they'd really want to turn her into a showstopper that looked undeniably glam/elegant. her bouquet looked like a handful of wheat and babys breath. just sad.

Damn, I never really cared about the royal family but this guy used to be so attractive and had gorgeous hair, it's scary to think you might get yourself a really cute dude and end up with an Albert de Monaco looking mofo.

I caught the wedding live on youtube just at the vows. I love fairytales etc so this was right up my alley.

Prince Harry is pretty irrelevant to the throne, so their wedding was going to be plain compared to William who is most likely to be King so that wedding was very grand. Kate's dress was beautiful.

I did like Meghan's dress although it seemed ill-fitted. The tiara was stunning I was obsessed with that. I thought she looked a very understated classic beauty.

The grounds looked amazing I was fangirling during the carriage ride. Must be nice to be a royal.

I didn't understand any of the naysayers around the wedding. It's not like Hollywood and Royalty haven't mixed before and William and Harry had Diana as a mother, we're moving away from tradition. And with the bleeding disease Meghan's blood will be a welcome breath of fresh air to that bloodline.

I think she got subtle work done to her nose, but the other anon is reaching. Both noses look fine.

Late to the party, but it’s so common for mixed race people to “morph” as the age. Especially from childhood.

They spent over 180k on that dress! It was under no budget lol. That dress was all Meghan. I thought that I read somewhere that royals aren’t even supposed to show their shoulders or something? It was just ugly, but entirely her own choice/fault. For 180k she could have gotten a gorgeous dress!

I agree, her nose is the same. It is the only feature of hers that I really like.
