Earlier this week, news broke that Prince Harry proposed to his girlfriend, Suits actress and activist Meghan Markle. The masses rejoiced at the idea of having Markle, a woman of color, in Kensington Palace. It is a dream come true. Black and Brown girls all over the world need this representation.

It’s crucial that women of color see themselves in positions of power. Unfortunately, our society has recently decided to use diversity as a marketing tactic, a mere ploy to seem woke and to generate more sales/traffic. This is upsetting, especially since it’s beautiful when variety is unforced and organically occurs in everyday life.

It’s nice to see fuller lips, tan skin, and textured hair in places where they were once denied (whether inadvertently or purposefully) for so long. This is what makes today’s latest revelation about Markle so special.

Today, blogger and former Miss Teen USA, Kamie Crawford, shared photos of the duchess-to-be rocking her natural hair texture.

You can catch the latest addition to the royal family looking absolutely stunning while she dons a head full of coils.

Now, we’re asking even more questions. What products does she use? Are Bantu knots ever a part of the equation? Does our duchess press her hair? What brush works best for her? Hopefully, our royal angel lets us know at some point.

As I said, it is HUGE to see Meghan Markle letting her hair do its thing. We need more of this authentic representation and are looking forward to seeing it.
