Facts about Meghan Markle:
- You all know her from Suits. One not many of you may remember that one of the very first roes she won were in General Hospital. She also worked as the briefcase model in Deal or No Deal before she was discovered for Suits that gave her the very deserving fame and six seasons in a row.
- Meghan’s nickname is flower, that is what her mother has called her ever since she was a little girl. She is also called Meg, MM, M&M by her co-workers, but she cherishes the ‘flower’ name given by her mom.
- However, even Meghan Markle is not her actual name. It is in fact her middle name; her first name is Rachel. Isn’t it a pleasant coincident that even her character’s name in the hit series Suits is Rachel. Guess, the role was written for her after all.
- As a young girl of 11 years she was very moved by gender inequality in the society. Meghan Markle wrote a letter to the then FLOTUS Hillary Clinton, complaining about a soap commercial she watched. She opinioned that the ad implying that women belong in the kitchen had a sexist undertone.
- Before she got her dream break in acting, she was working as a freelancing Calligrapher. Now isn’t this exciting that a regular member of the society with humble beginnings will make it to the Royal family. Cinderella stories aren’t all fairy tales after all!
- Meghan lives in Toronto, Canada but does frequently visit the Buckingham Palace. Though a popular name in the US, she would rather stay in the Canadian city as it allows her to live a regular life. “If I just want to walk my dogs, I throw on a baseball cap and I’ll do that.” Says the lady love of the younger prince who, if rumors are to be believed, has made a couple of visits to her Canadian abode.
- While most girls in the industry starve themselves to stay fit, our girl is a total foodie. Her blog had a generous supply of healthy and yummy recipes that she would often share with her readers. Her special interest was in food of different cultures and traditions around the world.
- Like many Hollywood celebrities, even Meghan practices Yoga every day. But she doesn’t indulge in this ancient Indian art of exercise just to stay fit, she has adopted it as a ritual, and can easily get into the toughest and most complexed postures. “Yoga is my thing,” she claims. “My mom is a yoga instructor, and I started doing mommy-and-me yoga with her when I was seven.”
- A Humanitarian, Meghan Markle visited Rwanda in 2016, as a Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada. During this trip, she toured a school and made sure it has ample supply of clean water. As a Global Ambassador, she has taken an oath to bring an improvement in the quality of life of these people.
- Not only for humans but a beauty of a human being, she has compassion even for animals. She owns two adorable dogs but has not bought them from a fancy breeder. Meghan Markle encourages people to adopt homeless pets instead of buying. Bogart and Guy are her two fur babies who often make star appearances on her Instagram alongside the hashtag #AdoptDontShop.
- She has a degree from Northwestern University and theater studies was her major. It is safe to say that she, unlike many of us, is putting her degree to good use.
- In addition to theater studies, Meghan was also a student of international relations in college and has worked for the US embassy in Buenos Aires. She has also spent a year living in Spain for the cause, but she defines the trip as wanderlust. Her keen interest in travel and international relations do make her a perfect bride for the royals, don’t they?
