Prince Harry Engaged

MEANWHILE, THE WORLD HAS BEEN TAKEN BY THE LOVE THAT’S GOING ON IN GREAT BRITAIN. THIS COUNTRY HAS A CONSTITUTIONAL MONARCHY GOVERNMENT. MOST OF THE COUNTRY’S DECISIONS ARE EXECUTED BY A PRIME MINISTER AND HIS CABINET. YET THE HEAD OF THE COUNTRY IS SOMEONE ELSE - THE KING - OR IN THIS CASE THE QUEEN. QUEEN ELIZABETH II IS CONSIDERED A FIGUREHEAD. FIGUREHEAD MEANS SOME ONE THAT IS IN A TOP POSITION, BUT IN REALITY -- DOESN’T MAKE ANY BIG DECISIONS.

QUEEN ELIZABETH II’S GRANDSON PRINCE HENRY JUST ANNOUNCED THAT HE IS ENGAGED TO BE MARRIED. HIS BRIDE WILL BE MEGHAN MARKLE, AN AMERICAN ACTRESS. HENRY IS FIFTH IN LINE TO TAKE THE THRONE – SO THE WORLD IS WATCHING FOR HIS UPCOMING ROYAL WEDDING, INCLUDING THE GIRLS AT MARKLE’S FORMER HIGH SCHOOL IN CALIFORNIA.

REPORTER ELLINA ABOVIAN HAS THEIR REACTIONS TO THE ENGAGEMENT.
