Tradition Doesn't Hold Back Meghan and Prince Harry
Also, the wedding itself would not have been possible a few decades ago. Duchess Meghan was previously married and divorced from her former husband. In the British Royal Family, weddings after a divorce have only recently become acceptable.
In 2019, Meghan and Prince Harry surprised many with the decision not to spend Christmas with the Royal Family. Instead, they celebrated in Canada together with Meghan's mother.
