LONDON — When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stand before the altar at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, a refuge of the British monarch for a thousand years, the archbishop of Canterbury will tie the knot with vows from the Book of Common Prayer that read, “to have and to hold . . . until death do us part.”
Not so very long ago, this wedding — with this service, and this officiant, at this place — would have been impossible.
Not because Markle is an American and a commoner, marrying a prince now sixth in line for the throne. And not because the actress is biracial, was raised Episcopalian and attended Catholic school in Los Angeles.
