ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Prince Harry's fiancé Meghan Markle tells the BBC that it is 'disheartening' and a 'shame' that there has been scrutiny about her race. "It's a shame that that is the climate in this world to focus so much on that," Markle, whose father is white and mother is African-American, said. "At the end of the day, I am really just proud of who I am and where I come from and we have never put any focus on that, we just focused on who we are as a couple." Britain's Prince Harry and U.S. actress Meghan Markle announced on Monday they were getting married next year, saying their relationship had blossomed "incredibly quickly" after meeting on a blind date. Harry, 33, Queen Elizabeth's grandson and fifth-in-line to the British throne, and Markle, 36, best known for her role in the U.S. TV legal drama "Suits", said they had got engaged in London this month and will wed in the spring next year.
