Once upon a time, in almost every one of these stories, there was royalty and a commoner. Charles and Diana, The Duke of Windsor and Wallis Simpson, William and Kate and now...Harry and Meghan.
The youngest son of Charles and Diana and the daughter of Doria Ragland who, according to a neighbor, has lived in this house in View Park for several years. The neighbor said that she's a private woman - but now the talk of the block.
Fabio Johnson tells FOX 11: He sees Meghan's mom "rarely… maybe in and out if I'm coming in and out." But, imagine going from a yoga instructor and social worker, which is what we're told she does, to suddenly a Royal mum-in-law who graduated from USC with a masters degree in social work.
But, that fairytale for her daughter and a real prince. Everyone here in the Crenshaw District is talking about it. Lauren Oliver, who works for a credit union, says "I think it's just awesome. I was just wowed by the whole situation and I think its amazing that she's marrying. I just feel love is love."
It was announced Tuesday that the two will marry in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle in May. Harry was baptized there in 1984.
About the racially mixed couple Oliver says, "Although she is African American and she's mixed as well...and he's Caucasian, I think it's just awesome that there able to come together and, like I said, love is love. So, if you love someone, it shouldn't matter what they look like." At a bus stop on Crenshaw Blvd, Gladys Worline says, "It's about the heart. It's deep in here that's it."
Down the street from Meghan's mom's house...Andre Ware, who was working on a plumbing problem in the neighborhood, says good news like this can go a long way to fix problems in society, "It sheds light on the positive word 'love' you know…when you lead with love people don't have to see hate all the time."
Says Juanita Miles Lewis, "I know she's biracial, but there's nothing wrong with that and I think it's a beautiful thing."
Everyone we talked with agreed.
