It’s official! A public statement released from Kensington Palace on behalf of Prince Harry has confirmed the dating rumour mill that has been churning for weeks on his relationship with American actress Meghan Markle.
For some of us, Markle might not be a household name just yet, but this 35 year-old’s profile proves that she is more than just another pretty face and worthy of, perhaps, the title of Future Duchess.
How the couple met:
The ginger prince allegedly met Markle through a mutual friend while promoting his Invictus Games for disabled servicemen. The rest is, obviously, history.
Her leading role:
Meghan Markle made her debut on the US television scene in 2002 with a small role on the hit soap opera, General Hospital. She later went on to add a slew of supporting roles in both television and films. Her breakout role, however, is on the legal drama series, Suits, which sees her playing the smart and ambitious paralegal Rachel Zane.
She’s more than just an actress:
When she’s not busy filming, Markle dedicates her time to charity work. She became the Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada this year and has travelled to Rwanda to help with the Clean Water Campaign. She is also a United Nations Women advocate and part of the HeforShe gender equality movement. Not only that, Markle is active in speaking engagements that addresses topics on gender and racial inequality.
Adding to the list of accomplishments:
Markle also runs a lifestyle website called thetig.com, where she wants to share her life’s passion as well as a space for other women to exchange creative ideas and their inspiring lifestyles.
She’s already stayed at Kengsinton Palace!
Just last night, it’s been reported that the stunning actress took a break from filming her hit show to see the prince in London. Rumour is she’s staying with Prince Harry at his Nottingham Cottage pad, where Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton used to live in.
Her current net worth is reported to be $US 3 million:
She has great style:
Looks pretty princess-ready to us.
