Yesterday, December 14, Idris Elba was in attendance at the One Million Young Dinner that took place at Buckingham Palace. He was there with his girlfriend, former Miss Vancouver Sabrina Dhowre and the duo was able to meet Prince Charles as well!
While there at the prestigious event, the star spoke to a few interviewers and he addressed the impact that from his point of view Meghan Markle getting married to Prince Harry and introducing a little bit of diversity into the royal family will make!
He even called the mixed race American actress a ‘role model’ and a ‘beacon!’
The 45-year-old actor went on to explain what he meant by saying: ‘Meghan, as a person, regardless of her color, is a role model. As a strong woman marrying into the royal family, she is going to be a role model for any woman. The point is that, of course, our society’s one of mixed heritage and it is nice to see Meghan within the royal family. It is great. And of course she is going to be a beacon, and she is going to be someone that people look up to.’
As you may already be aware, not too long ago, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced the fact that they are engaged and even had a joint-interview during which they talked about their romance and future together.
That being said, today, we also learned that the in love couple is set to walk down the aisle on May 19, 2018, according to the official announcement made by Kensington Palace.
