Amidst the war and conflict of our world, love has allowed people from different cultures and creeds to be joined through marriage. Everyone loves a good love story. It’s what makes the world go round. However, as we have recently seen through the British Royal Family, love can cause a well-established family institution to reflect and also be affected by the change in a turbulent way.
The case of Harry and Meghan
The British royal family was rocked by the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which sparked many discussions of the intricacies of mixed culture families. As with most families, there is no right or wrong and many are doing the best they can in a situation where they are faced with unknown territory.
For all intents and purposes we know this family well – it is a family of vast wealth that is multi-generational and has upheld its values and vision and managed the family business for centuries. Like any other family of wealth, its members have had the opportunity to travel the world and meet new people. Yet what has remained steady and constant, is the commitment of the members to uphold the family values and maintain the family business.
