Latrice Royale brought her drag to Atlanta this weekend, unleashing her big personality to crowds at Burkhart's on Friday and Saturday.
We caught up with the "RuPual's Drag Race" Season 4 finalist on Saturday when she performed with the cast of "Fever." Royale joined co-hosts Shawnna Brooks and Monica Van Pelt, along with other performers Evah Destruction, Myah Ross Monroe and Jaeda P. Starr.
The South Florida performer partied with the Burkhart's queens in February 2016. That's when she dished with us that she might "get married one day" to boyfriend Christopher Hamblin.
"We might get married one day, but right now we are both choosing to focus on our careers and ourselves. We are in business together as well, so sometimes it feels like we are already married. But not officially," Royale said ahead of a visit to Atlanta.
"One day" came sooner than Royale let on. She proposed to Hamblin four months later. On Saturday, she announced to the crowd at Burkhart's the pair is marrying in September 2018 – and that the wedding will take place in Atlanta.
