'She’s going to be a beacon'
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement last month, with the couple set to wed on 19th May 2018.
With the whole world starting to get excited about what a Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wedding would involve, Suits fans and high profile celebrities alike have been sharing their views on Meghan as a future royal – understandably she’s a hit.
The latest high profile name to voice his thoughts on Meghan is A-list actor Idris Elba.
While attending a Buckingham Palace dinner with the Prince of Wales to celebrate The Prince’s Trust, the 45-year-old actor was asked for his thoughts on Meghan Markle and whether he thought she would be a positive influence on society.
‘Meghan Markle, as a person, regardless of her colour, is a role model,’ he replied, going on to explain his reasoning to the Press Association.
‘As a strong woman marrying into our royal family, she’s going to be a role model for any woman – black, white. The point is that of course our society is one of mixed heritage and it’s nice to see Meghan within the royal family.’
He continued: ‘It’s great. And of course she’s going to be a beacon and of course she’s going to be someone that people look towards.’
Our question is now whether Idris will snag an invite to the royal wedding…
