A Few Questions On Elegant Solutions
The palace was ready to answer some delicate questions about the 36-year-old Markle’s move to Britain and her taking up a senior role in the royal family, sometimes called “the firm.” Knauf said she will comply with all immigration requirements and will become a British citizen, a process that may take several years, and will retain her U.S. citizenship throughout the process. He did not say whether she would drop her U.S. citizenship at some point. Asked about her religion, Knauf said Markle is a Protestant who will be baptized in the Church of England, which is headed by the queen in a largely ceremonial role. Markle’s personal belongings are being shipped from Canada, where she has lived for seven years while performing in the TV legal drama “Suits,” to Nottingham Cottage, where she and Harry will live. The cottage is located on the grounds of Kensington Palace in central London. She has already brought one of her two rescue pups, Guy, but the other — Bogart — is being left behind and will reside permanently with “good friends,” Knauf said. The union of the 33-year-old prince and Markle, an accomplished TV actress in her own right, represents a blending of Hollywood and royalty that is expected to draw an international audience — officials said it is a safe assumption that the service will be televised. The couple will carry out their first official engagement on Friday, visiting a youth charity and a World AIDS Day event in Nottingham in central England. For Markle, it will be a first taste of life as a working royal.
