And of course the duke of Windsor (and former king) married his American wife in 1937.

All in all, I would say it is not that exceptional that Harry marries a foreigner.
* Of the 5 children of king George V that got married, 2 married foreigners.
* Of the 2 children of king George VI 1 married a foreigner.
* Of the 4 children of queen Elizabeth II none married a foreigner.
* Of the 2 children of the prince of Wales 1 will marry a foreigner.
Elizabeth's children are the exception
To follow-up on the list of 'foreign' brides and grooms within the royal family.
If we look at the 4 children of king George V (who himself married a German), each of them had foreigners marrying in to the family:

Prince Albert (later George VI)'s eldest daughter married a Greek prince; and two of her grandchildren (out of 4 married or to be married ones) are non-British: Canadian and American

Princess Mary's family has many foreigners among their ranks:
1 of her 2 children married an Austrian bride
Of her 6 grandchildren (5 of whom married one to three times): the eldest married secondly an Australian; the second married firstly and secondly an American and thirdly an Nigerian bride (from Lagos descent). And the fifth one is married to a Jamaican.
Of her 3 married great-grandchildren 1 is married to an American.

The only son of prince Henry (Duke of Gloucester) that got married, married a Danish bride, among their three children-in-law one is from New Zealand of Maori descent.

Of the 3 children of prince George (Duke of Kent) -who was married to a Greek princess- 1 married a German/Czech countess. Out of his 6 married grandchildren: 1 married a Canadian (of Austrian descent) and 1 a Brit(?) of Croatian/Italian descent.

So happy for both Prince Harry and Meghan Markle! Can't wait for the photo call/op and perhaps an interview with the couple.....He proposed in London earlier this month he says. Marvelous news!

They're so cute. Did anyone get a glimpse of her ring? She showed it briefly but too fast for me to see much although I think it was a diamond.

That was short. Cute how they supported each other. Ring seems to be diamonds indeed (which I prefer as it works way better with all kinds of clothing).

She might need to get rid of her custom to wipe away her hair (just as Catherine tends to do).

What to say? They look beautiful together, beautiful. It was maybe the most natural posing I 've ever seen from a royal engagement photocall.
