Meghan Markle battles racism in Britain while preparing to marry her prince.

“We can look to the Royal Family as this kind of cornerstone of Britishness. It’s like the apex of Britishness,” Lawton says. But “the many millions of black people in the country, we couldn’t see ourselves reflected in the Royal Family.”

She says that now, for the first time, she finds herself talking to her friends about the Royal Family, and what it might become in the future.

“Harry marrying a light-skinned black woman won’t undo the pain of the past in Britain, it won’t undo all the negative aspects of our links to colonialism,” Lawton says.

“But I think it will go some way in taking steps to repair race relations and promote multiculturalism.”-CBC

Doria has already met Harry a few times — and was with Meghan and Harry at the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games in Toronto in September.

When the couple gave an interview after announcing their engagement in November, Harry called Meghan’s mother “amazing.” A source told PEOPLE that Harry even asked for Doria’s permission before he popped the question to Meghan.-People
