WINDSOR, England — A thousand-year-old English castle echoed with the exhortations of an African-American bishop and a gospel choir on Saturday, as Prince Harry wed Meghan Markle an American actress, nudging the British royal family into a new era.
The most extraordinary thing Harry has done is to marry Ms. Markle, an American actress who is three years his senior, biracial, divorced and vocal about her views.
Ms. Markle, who has long identified herself as a feminist, entered St. George’s Chapel alone rather than being given away by her father or any other man, a departure from tradition that in itself sent a message to the world. She was met halfway by Prince Charles, her future father-in-law and presumably the future king of Britain.
