Sharpton spoke of the nuptials during his weekly National Action Network rally Saturday in Harlem as millions across the globe had their eyes transfixed on the over-the-top affair Saturday between Harry and Markle, whose mother is black and father is white.
“When you got little white girls in Wales saying, ‘I want to be like Meghan,’ there’s a shift worldwide that white male supremacy is on its last breath,” Sharpton said.
“They hid the fact that there was an African-blooded queen 57 years married to King George III, named Sophie Charlotte (pictured above),” Sharpton said.
“But Meghan is too well-known. Y’all ain’t gonna hide Meghan. In fact, she brought mama there so y’all can’t,” he continued, referring to Markle’s African-American mother Doria Ragland, who was watching her daughter wed Prince Harry Saturday afternoon, and also had tea with fellow royals on Friday.
