Many thought that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were the first rebels in the usually proper Royal family, but they’d be wrong. Both Harry and his great-granduncle Edward VII married American divorcees, but they have an eery amount in common besides their choice in spouse. Here are the most uncanny similarities between Prince Harry and Edward VIII.

1. Let’s start with the obvious: both of the men, in a supposedly scandalous move, married previously divorced women. Meghan was married to talent agent and director Trevor Engelson back in 2011, but only for two years. Wallis, on the other hand, was married to an American Navy pilot called Earl Winfield Spencer Jr.

2. Edward and Harry were both extraordinarily charming and popular princes – dashing and debonair socialites of their generation. When the well-loved and admired Edward stepped down, it brought a tear to many eyes, and people feel the same about Prince Harry.

3. Both of their wives faced criticism from the media and British tabloids who didn’t respect boundaries. However, Meghan was accepted more readily than Edward’s beau back in 1936.

4. They love dancing and music. Edward carried this passion more so than academic inclinations, and Prince Harry has also had some pretty risqué tails in the tabloid that show a love for partying rather than university.
