We all love the story of how Megan went from a normal woman (a famous actress really) to becoming a princess, or a duchess.
Maybe it’s from watching so many Disney princess movies that makes becoming a princess, or marrying into royalty seem absolutely magical. While Megan may have topped the cake by marrying a British royal, other black women have also been fortunate enough to join these elite circles as well.
Here are 8 other black women besides Megan who married into royalty:
1. Ariana Austin, ‘Princess of Ethiopia’
This lucky African-American married Joel Makonnen an Ethiopian Prince who is the great-grandson of Ethiopian emperor Haile Selassie. When they began dating, he kept his lineage a secret and they had been on and off ever since, until they got married that is.

5. Emma McQuiston
McQuiston is the daughter of Suzanna McQuiston and Nigerian oil tycoon Ladi Jadesimi, so she had some pretty elite blood already. She married Ceawlin Henry Laszlo Thynn, Viscount Weymouth in 2013. He is a British businessman and the child of the seventh Marquess of Math, Alexander Thynn. A marquess is a nobleman of hereditary rank who is above an earl but below a duke. As for McQuiston, she is Britain’s first Black marchioness.
