Woman Becomes Princess After Marrying African Prince
Ariana Austin met Ethiopian prince Joel Makonnen at a D.C. nightclub.
In a piece for The New York Times, the coupled shared their “how they met” story, which was better than any Disney fairy tale. The two met at the Pearl nightclub in 2005. At the time, both were in school working on their degrees.
A short while later when two began dating for some time, Makonnen kept his royal roots a secret and eventually proposed.
