Sure, Shriver is almost 30 years older than Prince Harry—but who can deny some of their similarities? Harry’s family may be real British royalty, but Shriver’s is known as “American royalty.” Harry and Shriver can bond over their high-powered grandparents: her grandfather, Joseph Kennedy, was the ambitious businessman who raised a generation of leaders and his grandmother is, of course, the queen. Their families have both been marred by tragedy—Prince Harry’s mother, Diana, had a tragic demise, and Shriver has lost many of her family members to the “
Kennedy Curse.” There’s one hitch, though, to marriage: Harry is constitutionally barred from marrying a Roman Catholic, so Shriver would either have renounce her faith, as Harry’s cousin-in-law,
Autumn Kelly, did when she married 11th in line to the throne, Peter Philips—or Harry would have to give up his birthright.
