What does Meghan Markle mean for multilateralism?
Since the British royal wedding on Saturday, commentators have been lining up to interpret the political and social significance of the fact that a “mixed race American divorcee actress” is the newest member of the House of Windsor. This is not all froth. The marriage ceremony—with its emphasis on black culture and heritage, both British and American—has added a positive spin to debates about race and identity in the U.K.
If you believe the British media, Markle’s nuptials with Prince Harry could also reshape debates about Brexit, class and the role of religion in public life. Most of these prognostications will evaporate before too long.
