By now probably everyone knows who Meghan Markle is. In case you don’t know her yet, Meghan Markle is a former American actress and current British Duchess of Sussex. She is best known for her role as Rachel Zane in the successful TV show Suits on the USA Network. Her role as Rachel, which she played from 2011 to 2017, was undeniably her most successful role to date. In Suits, she played a paralegal and loved one of the main characters of the series – Mike Ross, played by Patrick J. Adams.
Beyond acting, Meghan is also known for her humanitarian efforts and as an outspoken feminist who never hesitates to address gender inequality. Before she married Prince Harry, she ran a lifestyle website called “The Tig”. Due to her humanitarian commitment, she has also represented several international charities over the years.
Although Meghan led a relatively quiet life as an actress, her marriage to Prince Harry has brought her into the limelight around the world as she now serves as a member of the British Royal Family. She has also made history by becoming the first black member of the family. So it is easy to understand why many people are interested in Meghan and her life.
Who Is Meghan Markle?
Rachel Meghan Markle was born on August 4, 1981, in Los Angeles, California as the daughter of Thomas Markle Sr. and Doria Ragland. Her father is a retired television director of photography, while her mother is a yoga teacher. Her parents divorced when Megan was only six years old, which led to her growing up with her mother, with whom she has a close relationship.
Because of her father’s profession, she often visited the sets of the television shows he worked on, which led her to develop an interest in the entertainment industry.
For her high school education, she attended Immaculate Heart High School in Los Angeles and later moved to Northwestern University, where she graduated in 2003 with a Bachelor’s degree in International Studies and Theater Studies.
Meghan Markle began her career as an actress in 2002 with a small role in the soap opera General Hospital.
Who Is Her Husband?
The husband of Meghan Markle need not be introduced. As a member of the British Royal Family, Prince Harry has been famous since the day of his birth on September 15, 1984. His grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, is the current Queen of England, while his father, Prince Charles, is the apparent heir to the throne. His mother was the iconic Princess Diana. As a result of all this, Prince Harry has always spent his life under intense media attention.
Although many people know him as Prince Harry, not many people know that “Harry” is actually a nickname because his birth name is Prince Henry Charles Albert David.
When he was growing up, his mother did not want her two children to be as protected as the former King’s children, so she occasionally took them to McDonald’s, Disney World, homeless shelters, and AIDS clinics to give them broader experiences. Sadly, his parents divorced in 1996, and the following year, in 1997, his mother died in a car accident in Paris.
The loss of his mother was hard on the young prince, who was only 12 years old at the time, and so he sought advice on how to cope with her death.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry began their relationship in May 2016, after being brought together by a mutual friend.
