Harry and Meghan are now hitched.
We can easily see that it’s not going to work out. The Royals probably know too, but are playing along so as not to be accused of racism.
Abstracting from race and getting into human nature, the following piece is one of the best I’ve ever read that explains why some people make so much trouble for others.
The title is “She’s Trouble”—But So Is He!
Evolutionary Psychology Says Meghan and Harry Will Divorce
It’s a total of 2,000 words and even more when the comments are counted. I’m extracting about 500 words.
When British Conservative politician Ann Widdecombe dared to say what any rational person believes about the soon-to be-royal Ms. Meghan Markle (“I think she’s trouble”) she was branded a “racist dinosaur” . [A ROYAL PAIN Celebrity Big Brother’s Ann Widdecombe branded a ‘racist dinosaur’ after saying Meghan Markle is ‘trouble’ because of ‘her background’, By Fay Strang, The Sun, January10, 2018] In fact, the deeply religious Widdecombe, ensconced in the UK’s “Celebrity Big Brother House,” didn’t mention Markle’s ethnicity or the fact that this is a mixed-race marriage at all. But given the psychological and strongly genetic factors that predict divorce, this whole marriage is “trouble.” A “super-forecaster” acquaintance–whose meal ticket is his ability to make correct predictions—reckons about three years to separation, five or six years to divorce.
In the case of the marriage of Harry’s brother Prince William to Kate Middleton, only one of them is from a broken home. Prince Charles and two of his three siblings are divorced. Princess Diana’s parents divorced when she was 8, and her brother, the Earl Spencer, has two failed marriages behind him. Kate’s parents seem to have managed a loving and successful union and, perhaps, so will she. But divorce is about 40% genetic [Marriage and divorce: A genetic perspective. Beth Jerskey et al, Personality & Individual Differences, October 2010], so it becomes much more unlikely with Harry and the former Suits starlet.
Markle’s father has been divorced twice. Her mother has been divorced once. Her half-sister has contracted two failed marriages. And then there’s her half-brother, a divorced alcoholic, who has charged with holding a gun to his girlfriend’s head in 2017. [EXCLUSIVE: Shock for Harry’s girl: Meghan Markle’s BROTHER is arrested and charged with holding a gun to his girlfriend’s head ‘in violent row during late night drinking session at his flat’, Daily Mail, January 14, 2018]
Markle herself was already divorced at 32, after just 23 months of marriage, sending her ring back to her ex-husband via registered mail. [Is THIS the real reason Meghan Markle divorced her first husband Trevor Engelson? By Belinda Robinson, The Sun, April 20, 2018] Her divorce and her ruthless treatment of her ex imply low altruism and low impulse control, both key predictors of marital breakdown [Personality traits and mental divorce. Fani & Kheirabadi, Proceedia, 2011, 30:671-5].
Markle’s father’s side have shown themselves to be money-grabbing and dishonest, with her father setting up supposed “paparazzi” photos of himself to make a quick buck out of his daughter’s success. [,by Owen Gough, Express, May 16, 2018 ]

OK, these first 500 words really haven’t even gotten to the good part yet. That material focuses on J. Philippe Rushton’s Life History Strategy. The analysis is devasting for both Markle and Harry.
Brits want to believe in fairy tales. Like that Diana was a real life princess and not a race-mixing whore.
The last two paragraphs of the piece address this self-deception.
This manifestly doomed marriage will make it even worse for him in the long run. She’ll tire of him.
But we can’t say so. The bride is half-black, so the “will to believe” will be too strong . . . right up until day the inevitable split engrosses the UK tabloids.
