As the news of Prince Harry's engagement to actress and entrepreneur Meghan Markle has spread, so have discussions about Markle's "suitability" as a royal partner for Harry. People have raised many questions on the duo being unfit to become potential heirs to the throne, while others have pointed out some of Meghan's past relationships may make it tricky to get the public to accept.
While most agree the entire conversation is distasteful and only Harry can decide who is or is not suitable for him, that didn't stop conservative British newspaper The Spectator from weighing in on whether or not she would be worthy of becoming part of the Royal Family.
They clearly do not approve:
For those not in-the-know, "CofE" is short for the Church of England and, according to tradition, the reigning monarch of England is also the head of the Church. In this case, of course, that would be Harry's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.
But the notion that Markle is somehow "unsuitable" because she has been divorced struck people as a bit off, especially considering the history of the Church of England itself has a long history of divorcing.
History buffs weren't the only ones with questions...
Even J.K. Rowling got in on the discussion, shutting The Spectator's assertion down with a single hashtag:
And Twitter was so here for it...
We'll give Byron the last GIF in this discussion:
We wish Meghan and Harry all the best in their union! Hopefully the Royal Family can learn to accept an 'outsider' because it could be a huge step towards them becoming, somewhat...normal.
