What if [...]

I was among millions of people last week who were obsessed with the wedding of Prince Harry of Wales and American actress Meghan Markle. The wedding was beautiful and had meaning beyond what I’d originally expected. It was a cultural event, and even though it was seen by millions, it was the intimate story of [...]
