On May 19, 2018, Prince Harry of the United Kingdom -- once voted Britain's most eligible bachelor -- marries American former actress Meghan Markle at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle. Miss Markle is the first person of mixed race heritage to marry into the British royal family, and also the first American. Mrs Simpson, later known as the Duchess of Windsor, was also American but her intended marriage to King Edward VIII caused a constitutional crisis that led to his abdication prior to their marriage.
