"The queen and The Duke of Edinburgh are delighted for the couple and wish them every happiness," Buckingham Palace said in a statement. A divorced woman (this is Markle's second marraige) who is three years older than her prince would have raised eyebrows not so long ago.
But that was before Harry's mother, Diana, and his aunt Fergie, the Duchess of York, changed everything about what is and isn't appropriate for British royalty.
Fergie is larger than life when she's performing onstage with the Black Eyed Peas, but in person, the sexy singer looks positively teeny as she walks into New York City's Ono restaurant. Eventually, she started singing backup vocals, and in 2002, she was asked to be a full-fledged member of the group. I'm old-fashioned — I like to have the door opened for me. My lower stomach is very hard for me to get in shape. I've been doing a low-fat, low-carb food-delivery diet for about a month, and that's given me some structure.
After whispering a parting "l love you" to her actor boyfriend of two years, Josh Duhamel, the 31-year-old snaps her bedazzled phone shut and points out that she's wearing the same outfit she wore to her Cosmo cover shoot the previous day (a white tank top, knee-length black shorts and a newsboy cap). Four years and two platinum albums later, Fergie is at the top of her game. By the way, Josh is a nice guy…but he's edgier than people think. When I'm around the boys, it's hard because they can eat whatever they want. For a while, I started trying to go no-carb, and then I'd eat the cheese off the entire pizza, which is like 70 grams of fat! What I'm doing now — eating small meals — works for me.
Also, the world refers to him as Fergie, because that’s all we have got really, it’s most likely a nickname, or a shortened version of something like Ferguson.
We gleaned another pointer to this notion off Elle’s Instagram page, she posted a picture captioned, ‘AF ❤️ EK FOR EVA’, so there’s a first name we don’t know? Anyway, no more talk about ex’s and oh’, it’s time to talk about the fiance and their epic proposal story.
The list, conveniently compiled by Popsugar, includes model Lauren Pope, singer Natalie Imbruglia, TV personality Caroline Flack, singer Camilla Romestrand, model Florence Brudenell-Bruce, singer Mollie King, Camilla Thurlow and singer Ellie Goulding. Keep up with this story and more Harry had two longer relationships before Markle, including his off-and-on romance with Chelsy Davy.
