Inside The Silly Conspiracy Regarding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Engagement

Lowly British outsiders continue to be curious of the same goings on of the Royal Family as lowly American outsiders who follow the Kardashians—they want to know about engagements, babies, courtships, and general family drama.

(Quick side note: It’s worth mentioning how baffling it seems that the same Americans who resent the Kardashian clan eagerly anticipate the same gossip regarding UK royalty, but that’s a discussion for a different day.)

Because on this day, we learned that Prince Harry proposed marriage to American actress Meghan Markle. That wild child Harry would eventually become engaged isn’t that surprising. However, that he would choose an American POC best known for her middling work on the USA sitcom drama Suits didn’t exactly have the best odds.

Yet this is what happened. Naturally, loads of people went to Twitter to express their exuberance over the announcement.

Perhaps the best reaction, however, was this red-eye conspiracy theory offered by Greg Pollowitz, the editor at Twitchy.com. As Pollowitz explained, this engagement is all a British rouse to reclaim America as the country’s rightful colony.

Some couldn’t resist playing out the cheeky theory. As happens with anything viral of this nature, the memes and jokes began in earnest.

Until that happens, this American will continue sipping his tea, remembering the red coats and the Revolution, and how we, in fact, beat that ass.
