Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got emotional by the inauguration of US President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
According to the media reports, the ceremony was quite emotional for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex who were delighted to be witnessing history on Wednesday as the first female, Black American, South Asian American Vice President, Kamala Harris was sworn in.
Sources said that “The inauguration is very personal for Meghan and Harry.”
“Harry’s been friends with Joe and [wife] Jill [Biden] for years and Meghan has a huge amount of respect and admiration for them and for Kamala Harris,” the source said.
“It’s just a monumental moment in history — watching the first female VP being sworn in will for sure be emotional for Meghan. She’s happy beyond words about it. Meghan has always been so passionate about women’s rights and it was her mom [Doria] that instilled that in her, so being able to watch this milestone moment with her mom is huge. It’s a day she’s been waiting for,” the insider went on to say.
