(RNN) – From “Cinderella” to “Enchanted,” pop culture tells the story of average, everyday people who strike it lucky and marry royalty – and sometimes life imitates art.

Like his brother, Prince Harry won’t be marrying someone of royal blood when he weds American actress Meghan Markle on May 19.

But that isn’t as uncommon as one may think, as far as royal weddings go.

Kings, princes, emperors and even princesses have broken with what is seen as tradition in order to marry so-called “commoners.”

Some of the relationships have faced hardships and criticism from the people and from family members, and others have been accepted without question.

Regardless, these “fairytale” romances give us normal people hope that one day, we could find our royal soulmate, too.
