Prince Harry and Meghan Markle should have a happy marriage if the lessons of history are anything to go by, says author Anne de Courcy, who is coming to Buxton International Festival to talk about her book on American millionairesses marrying into British nobility. 

America’s “Dollar Princesses” who married impoverished British aristocrats in the 19th Century not only saved plenty of country houses with their cash  –  they probably saved the country itself, said Anne, who will talk about The Husband Hunters on July 19.
