The View Meghan Markle Prince Harry engaged


On Monday’s “The View,” the co-hosts reacted to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s engagement. The panelists were excited for the interracial British-American couple. Watch the video below!

As Gossip Cop reported early Monday morning, it was announced Prince Harry and Markle are officially engaged after he proposed earlier this month. The news quickly lit up the internet, with stars already celebrating the upcoming royal wedding. And on the ABC talk show, they discussed the big developments after Meghan McCain spoke about her own nuptials as she just tied the knot last week.

“There’s another Meghan wedding coming up,” Whoopi Goldberg declared, highlighting that Markle will be the “very first bi-racial American royal in the UK.” She said into the camera, “All you kids out there, all you little girls who say, ‘Well, no, that could never happen to me,’ I’m telling you, stuff’s happening all the time. So, congratulations!” That said, Goldberg did point out there are already “other royals of color” in other countries.

Sunny Hostin exclaimed, “Shout-out to the bi-racial girls out there! We’re coming up!” That led Goldberg to remark, “Shout-out to anybody who thought they could never be a royal. Love doesn’t seem to care. It’s a good thing.” Joy Behar observed that it’s “quite a jump from the old days,” while Hostin pointed out that Markle is also a Catholic being welcomed into the Protestant monarchy. “There are a lot of firsts here,” she said.

Commented McCain, “I think being an American, I don’t have to pay attention to this, but since he’s marrying an American woman, it’s a lot more interesting than anything that’s happened in, I think, the past 30 years of the royal family. Automatically I can care.” Behar noted Princess Diana was a big deal, but McCain reminded that she was a young kid at that time. “For our generation, I think it’s the first thing that’s pretty interesting about the royal for a long time,” she said.

Goldberg got the last word, happily saying, “The hue of the royal family is about to shift, which is kind of interesting. It’s kind of wonderful. Like I said, a lot of little girls have been told, ‘That will never happen for you. You will never, ever be a princess.’ I beg to differ!” Check out the video below.
