    Mixed race and mostly white like Meghan Markle. Probably no more than 1/3 black

      Yep, makes sense, Luisiana Creole is pretty much the american equivalent of “pardo”, a term we use in Brazil refering to mixed-race people. And since her dad is full white, it’s safe to say she’s mostly white, if you combine with the european admixture of her mom.
