“When I was a teenager looking for representations of love, this was not one available to me.” The 1948 marriage between Williams and Khama, when Botswana was still a British protectorate named Bechuanaland, had deep ramifications.
Khama, who had met Williams at a missionary society dance in London, had been supposed to return to assume the kingship of the Bamangwato people, after completing his time at Oxford University and subsequent legal studies, but instead returned home with a white, English bride — just as neighboring South Africa had made interracial marriage illegal under the apartheid system.
Williams’s family also opposed the marriage, and the British government reacted angrily at what they saw as a threat to their regional relationships.
Asked what Pike thought motivated the headstrong Englishwoman, the actress said she believed Williams’s boldness came from her experiences during World War II, in which new opportunities had opened up for women.

In the late 1940s, Prince Seretse Khama of Bechuanaland is studying law in Britain in preparation for his eventual ascension to the throne.
Now facing a citizenry leery of a white Briton as their Queen, the international opposition is even more unyielding from the British holding their land as a protectorate and fearful of South Africa's racist backlash to this affront to their apartheid domination.
Against all odds, King Khama and Ruth must struggle to maintain their love and help their people in a land that would become the Republic of Botswana.
These women come in all shapes and sizes, but what they all have in common is that they're all women that Taylor Lautner has either dated or hooked up with.
