During her first visit to South Africa, Meghan spoke of her black heritage, saying:
“On a personal note, may I just say that while I am here with my husband as a member of the royal family, I want you to know that for me, I am here as a mother, as a wife, as a woman, as a woman of color, and as your sister."
Meghan proudly shouting from the rooftops about who she is might pretty much be the most Disney Princess thing she can do. At the core of every princess story is an expression of individuality. Queen Elsa? She has magical freakin' powers that scared her people, but were eventually the same reason they embraced her. Ariel? Her singing voice was EVERYTHING and set her apart from everyone else. Mulan fought against her cultural norms and ended up SAVING HER COUNTRY! Meghan's public display of pride for her African American heritage could be the inspiration for a whole slew of Disney ballads — and will definitely encourage kids the way classic Disney Princesses have.
