Meghan Markle will soon be moving into Frogmore House, the Windsor family castle where another divorced American woman who married into the Royal Family, Wallis Simpson, is buried. However, the difference here is that Meghan's marriage into the Windsors doesn't look like it's going to threaten the very existence of the British monarchy.
As Town and Country Magazine reports, it's not uncommon for members of the Royal Family to be buried on the grounds of Royal residences. And Frogmore House is where Wallis Simpson and her husband, the Duke of Cambridge -- who reigned briefly as Edward VIII -- are buried.
Frogmore House is also where Meghan and Harry are going to make their home. The two are striking out from Kensington Palace, where they've lived next door to future King Prince William and his wife and their kids.
Perhaps ironically, Meghan has something in common with Wallis: both women are divorced Americans who married into the Royal Family. But while Wallis' marriage caused a scandal that almost brought down the monarchy, Meghan's marriage has caused little more than a few batted eyes and the rare bit of pearl-clutching among older Brits.
The middle 1930s were a different time across the Pond. British society, and in particular the Church of England -- of which the monarch is the titular Head -- were much more uptight about divorce than they are now.
