Who hasn’t heard of the newest member of England’s Royal Family, Megan Markle? This Hollywood actress turned Princess is taking the world by storm, her charisma, good looks and fashion sense leaving us all in awe. Meghan is also a very unique Princess, creating controversy because of her and Prince Harry’s new marriage.
For one, she’s an American. Although it isn’t frowned upon, most members of the Royal Family marry someone from England. Meghan is mixed-race, her father is Caucasian, and her mother is African-American: this is a first for England. She is also the first American divorcee to marry into the royal family in over 80 years. Aside from that, Meghan’s career as a Hollywood actress has also sparked much debate. It’s safe to say, Meghan Markle is not your typical Royal, and she’s sure making waves with her new title, Duchess Of Sussex.
So who is Prince Harry’s mysterious new wife? Who is the real Meghan Markle? She is quite the accomplished woman, if we do say so ourselves. The Hollywood star turned Royal was born in Los Angeles, California on August 4th, 1981 as Rachel Meghan Markle. Young Meghan grew up in Hollywood, CA and went to private schools throughout her childhood. She then went on to study at Northwestern University in Illinois, where she studied Theatre and was a part of the sorority Kappa Kappa Gamma (KKG). Markle began taking on small roles in American TV and films while she was still in University. The powerhouse ended up getting her big break in the American TV drama series, Suits from 2011 to 2016. Meghan is an outspoken feminist and is known for her humanitarian work with various charity organizations. Did you know she also has a fashion line?
While some may not be thrilled with the marriage between Meghan and Harry, we sure love it. It’s time for an outspoken woman to shake things up, both with the Royals, and in everyday life. Meghan serves as a role model for many young girls, showing and telling them that anything is attainable: equality, happiness, success. All you need to do is work hard, and believe in yourself. The sky is the limit and women are reaching greater heights than ever. As an interracial feminist holding a high position of power in the English monarchy, Meghan has a bit of sway. Watch out world…Meghan Markle has arrived!
What’s A Birthday Without Some Indulgence?
Birthdays include some salty and sweet treats to celebrate the big day…Meghan is no stranger to this! The Duchess of Sussex has a yearly ritual of french fries each time her birthday rolls around…what an interesting choice! While most birthday boys and girls go for cake to celebrate the day they came into this world, Mrs. Markle chooses a salty delight. We wonder if she goes for regular or switches it up with sweet potato? No one can know, but what we do know is that she didn’t skip the tradition for her 37th bday that just passed…happy belated Meghan! And to many more years filled with celebrations and fries.
