Meghan's Wedding Falls on This Notorious British Anniversary
Somebody forgot to check their calendar. Or Did they?
Evidently Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are not superstitious. The royal lovebirds' wedding date just happens to fall on the anniversary of Anne Boleyn's beheading.
Five centuries ago, a stylish and very outspoken woman married a redheaded royal named Henry. On Saturday, so will Meghan. Harry's given name, by the way, is Henry.
On May 19, 1536, Anne Boleyn, the second wife of King Henry VIII and Queen of England from 1533 until her death was executed outside on the green near the Tower of London. She had been found guilty of several false charges, among them adultery, incest, and conspiracy.
Is it possible the royals knew of the coincidence and decided to keep calm and carry on? Sure, but as far as anniversaries go, this one is a doozy. But considering the unprecedented development of the bride-to-be's father, Thomas Markle, pulling out of the wedding at the last minute and admitting to having staged fake photos with the paparazzi on Monday, it's a pretty safe bet that sharing a date with one of the most notorious events that ever occurred within the royal family wasn't top of mind this week.
Either that, or someone has a pretty dark sense of humor.
