Biography of Meghan Markle: from actress to royal bride

Biography of Meghan Markle: Meghan, duchess of Sussex, first became known as an actress, notably starring as Rachel Zane in the American television drama “Suits” (2011–18). (Born in August 4, 1981, Los Angeles , California).

In 2016 Meghan began dating Prince Harry, duke of Sussex (then Prince Harry of Wales), and the couple married at Windsor Castle in May 2018. Although Harry and Megan were initially embraced by the press, their desire for privacy resulted in negative media coverage, and in January 2020, amid rumors of growing tensions between the couple and other royals, Harry and Meghan announced that they would “step back” from their royal duties and become financially independent. On March 31, the pair officially ceased to be working members of the Royal Family; they planned to divide their time between the United Kingdom and North America.

“There is nothing as delicious (or as impressive) as a perfectly roasted chicken. It’s a game-changer,” she told Good Housekeeping in 2017. “I bring that to dinner parties and make a lot of friends.”

Her culinary skills and love of gastronomy was also a trait of her “Suits” character.

“I love food. Unapologetically so,” she wrote for Today in 2012. “… Just like my character, Rachel Zane, I’m a foodie, so if I’m going to eat it, it has to be good.”

Biography of Meghan Markle: Before marrying a member of the royal family, Markle ran a lifestyle blog, The Tig, named after Tignanello wine.

“I had a sip of it six years ago, and it was my first aha moment,” she told Allure in 2014. “You spend years going, ‘Oh, I’ll just have red or white. I don’t really know what the difference is.’ But then one day you take a sip of something and you’re like, I get it.”
“So The Tig became this personal idea of getting it — fashion, travel, beauty, all of it,” she added.

3-She said that tea-tree oil is one of her travel must-haves.

Markle told Allure in 2014 that tea-tree oil was the go-to travel hack she packed with her “all the time.”

“The one thing that I cannot live without when I’m traveling is a small container of tea-tree oil,” she said. “It’s not the most glamorous thing, but if you get a cut, a mosquito bite, a small breakout, no matter what it is, it’s my little cure-all.”

4-She double majored at Northwestern University.

Biography of Meghan Markle: The self-avowed “theater nerd” said she found herself torn between politics and a life in the arts, so she decided to study both in college.

“I knew I wanted to do acting, but I hated the idea of being this cliché — a girl from LA who decides to be an actress,” she said during her 2013 Marie Claire interview.

“I wanted more than that, and I had always loved politics, so I ended up changing my major completely, and double majoring in theater and international relations,” she added.

“… two boys from my class said, ‘Yeah, that’s where women belong, in the kitchen,'” she said. “I remember feeling shocked and angry and also just feeling so hurt — it just wasn’t right and something needed to be done.”

“So I went home and I told my dad what had happened, and he encouraged me to write letters, so I did,” she continued.

“By my junior year I had finished most of my credits, and I applied for an internship at the U.S. Embassy, so I ended up working in the embassy in Buenos Aires for a few months,” she said in her 2013 Marie Claire interview.

“So I’m 20 years old, in Buenos Aires, in a motorcade, doing that whole thing,” she added. “I thought for sure I would still have a career in politics.”

7-She is a skilled calligrapher.

Biography of Meghan Markle: Markle is known to send out thank-you notes featuring her impeccable penmanship, which she said she learned in a handwriting class at an all-girls Catholic school.

She told Esquire in 2013 that she used her calligraphy skills as a “pseudo-waitressing job” while auditioning by creating invitations for events, like Robin Thicke and Paula Patton’s wedding.

“I would sit there with a little white tube sock on my hand so no hand oils got on the card, trying to pay my bills while auditioning,” she said. “I’m glad that in the land of no one seeming to appreciate a handwritten note anymore that I can try to keep that alive.”

8-She started practicing yoga at 7 years old.

Biography of Meghan Markle: Markle has often been seen carrying a yoga mat under her arm, and it’s a practice she got into at age 7 thanks to her mom, Doria Ragland.

“Yoga is my thing,” Markle told Best Health in 2016. “My mom is a yoga instructor, and I started doing mommy-and-me yoga with her when I was 7.”

9-She reportedly is fluent in Spanish.

People reported that she picked up her Spanish skills while interning with the US Embassy in Buenos Aires and that Markle is also conversant in French.

10-Early in their relationship, she and Prince Harry pretended to be strangers on a date.

Biography of Meghan Markle: Before they were a famous couple, Prince Harry and Markle tried to keep their relationship out of the public eye. The Duke of Sussex spoke about the lengths they went to do so on a 2021 episode of Dax Shepard’s “Armchair Expert” podcast.

“The beauty of it is that the first time that Meghan and I met up for her to come and stay with me, we met up in a supermarket in London — pretending that we didn’t know each other — so, texting from the other side of the aisle,” Prince Harry said.

“I was there texting her saying, ‘Is this the right one?’ She goes, ‘No, you want parchment paper.’ I’m like, ‘OK, [whispers] where’s the parchment paper?'” he added.

Markle and Prince Harry have since been married for four years and have two kids together.
