Mumbai, April 13, 2021: Prince Philip, the husband of Queen Elizabeth II, passed away recently at the age of 99. Several actors have played Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, both on TV and big screen. Here are actors who married in royal families too.
Meghan Markle is one of the actors who married in royal families
Megan Markle was an exception at British Royal Family. Being an actress, she married into British Royal Family, breaking barriers. She is one of the actors who married in royal families. Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, have a lot to say about their former life — and as with anything to do with the royal family, the world is waiting to hear everything. The couple, who got married in 2018, have spoken to famed TV star Oprah Winfrey on March 7 about their decision to break away from royal life, and how Buckingham Palace and the British press played a big part in it.
In the interview, Harry invokes his late mother Princess Diana, while Meghan talks about “falsehoods” spread about them.
Days prior to this tell-all talk, Meghan has been hit with allegations of bullying staff — which she has denied — and an investigation into the claims has begun. It’s a complex and fraught affair, which many have likened to the days of Prince Charles and Princess Diana, who died on August 31 at age 36, the same age that Prince Harry is now.
Grace Kelly is also one of the American actors who married in royal families
American actress Grace Kelly is one of the actors who married in royal families. Grace headed the US delegation at the Cannes Film Festival in April 1955. While there, she was invited to participate in a photo session with Prince Rainier III, the sovereign of the Principality of Monaco, at the Prince’s Palace, about 55 kms away from Cannes.
After a series of delays and complications, she met him at the Prince’s Palace of Monaco on May 6, 1955. After a year-long courtship described as containing “a good deal of rational appraisal on both sides”, Prince Rainier married Kelly in 1956.
Kunal Khemu and Soha Ali Khan
Soha Ali Khan is the beautiful princess of the nawabi gharana. Daughter of Indian cricketer and ninth Nawab of Pataudi Mansoor Ali Khan, she tied the knot with her long-time beau and Bollywood actor, Kunal Khemu on January 25, 2015.
As planned by the couple, the wedding was a low-key affair that took place at their Khar residence in Mumbai, in the presence of a registrar and the family members.
Despite the couple’s intention to keep their wedding an intimate affair, it grabbed a lot of attention from media.
Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan
Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan are undoubtedly one of the stylish couples we have in Bollywood.
Although there is a gap of about 10-years in their age, they have always used it to their advantage and have never let it come in the way of their love and adulation for each other.
Recently, Kareena opened up about how Saif, the tenth Nawab of Pataudi, was the one who came to her rescue when things weren’t going right in her career.
She believes that she has always been blessed with the love and support of her loved ones. And at a time when she thought she was falling, Saif caught her.
Elaborating more, Kareena spoke about falling for the utter charm of the Nawab of Pataudi.
She also reminisced the time during shooting of ‘Tashan’ when they would go on long bike rides just to spend some time together. The actress feels that Saif helped her heal and fall in love with herself. Although they are dramatically different, she has learnt from him how to strike a balance and not let things get to her.
On the work front, Saif will be seen in ‘Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior’ and ‘Bhoot Police’. Kareena, on the other hand, has a line-up of films which include ‘Good News’, ‘Angrezi Medium’ and ‘Takht’.
