All I knew about her was she was a bi-racial actress who married Queen Elizabeth's grandson Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex. I was curious after all the publicity following their first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, in 2019, so did some checking and found she was an educated, talented, complex woman, with a strong interest in inequalities and social injustice in the world.

Her father was caucasian and a television director of photography and lighting in Los Angeles.
On her mother's side, she is descended from African Americans enslaved in Georgia.
She attended private schools in Los Angeles.

Wow!, Englands Royal Family joins the 21st Century.
