Meghan Markle's Life History + Photo Of First Hubby And Why They Broke Up

MEGHAN Markle is the American television actress and star of Suits who is engaged to be married to Prince Harry.
The pair will walk down the aisle on May 19, 2018 at Windsor Castle. Here's Meghan's story and how she charmed the world's most eligible bachelor.





Who is Meghan Markle and who are her parents?


The 36-year-old star was born and raised in California but until recently lived in Toronto, Canada, where the TV show Suits is filmed.

When she was little, Meghan spent a lot of time on the set of US TV show Married... with Children because her dad was a photography director on it.

Meghan was "discovered" at a party but while her career was starting out she worked as a freelance calligrapher.

Meghan's mother, Doria Radlan, is a yoga instructor and social worker. Her father, Thomas W Markle, is a former television lighting director who won a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievement in Lighting Direction for a Drama Series.

Doria is African-American, while Meghan's father is Dutch-Irish, and the family were victims of racial abuse when Meghan was younger.

Meghan is 5ft 6in compared to her future husband's 6ft 1in.

Meghan Markle used to write wedding invitations and could soon be writing her own



When did Meghan Markle and Prince Harry start dating?


In November 2016, Kensington Palace confirmed the Suits actress was the Prince's girlfriend, with a statement adding that Harry was concerned for her safety due to high media attention.


Harry and Meghan were spotted hand-in-hand for the first time in February 2017, while out on a date in London soon after.

The couple cemented their relationship even further when Harry was reported to have gained the blessing of Meghan's dad, Thomas.


On May 6, 2017, Meghan made her first public appearance as a royal girlfriend when she proudly watched Prince Harry playing polo in Berkshire and both Harry and Megan attended the wedding of Pippa Middleton and James Matthews in May.

On November 27, 2017, it was revealed the happy couple would be getting married in the spring of 2018.




When are Prince Harry and Meghan Markle getting married?

The highly-anticipated wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will take place next spring on May 19.

The couple will tie the knot at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, which is where Harry was christened when he was three months old.

In a statement, Kensington Palace said: "Her Majesty The Queen has granted permission for the wedding to take place at the Chapel.

"The Royal Family will pay for the wedding."

It has been announced that they will live in Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace.




What about Meghan's love life before Prince Harry?


Meghan began dating Trevor Engelson, who has a production company, in 2004 and the pair married on September 10, 2011.

They exchanged vows in Jamaica but went their separate ways in 2013.

Pals of the couple said they split after Meghan developed a "close friendship" with Canadian ice hockey star, Michael Del Zotto, 26.


Meghan's chatted about what she likes in a guy in the past, revealing she dislikes anyone who is "catty" and loves it when a man makes an effort to impress.

"If the guy is going to write a girl a letter, whether it looks like a doctor’s note, if he takes time to put pen to paper and not type something, there’s something so romantic and beautiful about that," she said.

What has Meghan starred in as an actress?

Meghan is an actress whose biggest role is in the US TV show Suits, where she plays Rachel Zane.

She seems to be keen on a legal drama, as she's also starred as an FBI special agent called Amy Jessup in sci-fi thriller Fringe, and had parts in CSI: Miami.

On the big screen, Meghan has appeared in Horrible Bosses, Get Him to the Greek and Remember Me.

She also enjoyed a brief stint on Deal Or No Deal in 2006 as a briefcase model.




What else is Meghan Markle involved in?


Meghan is committed to charity, much like Prince Harry.

She is the Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada and has been to Rwanda to promote the organisation's Clean Water Campaign.

She has also visited Afghanistan to support US forces and their families.

In 2014 she was involved in a UN campaign for gender equality.

Most recently she has spoken out about period taboos in a powerful essay and she travelled to Delhi and Mumbai in January “to meet girls and women directly impacted by the stigmatisation of menstrual health”.

She has also worked as a model - she was one of the women who held the briefcases on the US version of Deal or No Deal in 2006.


The Suits star also joined Prince Harry at the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto - the sporting competition which the Prince founded.

It was the first time the pair had been spotted together at a public event.




What has Meghan Markle said about being mixed race?

Doria Radlan, Meghan Markle's mum, is African-American, while Meghan's father is Dutch-Irish, and their difference in skin tone led to the family receiving racial abuse when she was younger.

The star has since said that because her mother is black with dreadlocks, and she passes as caucasian, she often came under fire growing up as people questioned whether her mother was in fact her biological mum.

Meghan recalled how her mother was mistaken for the nanny before adding in an interview: "I was home in LA on a college break when my mom was called the ‘N’ word. We were leaving a concert and she wasn’t pulling out of a parking space quickly enough for another driver."

In an article for Elle magazine, Meghan wrote: “Being biracial paints a blurred line that is equal parts staggering and illuminating.”

“While my mixed heritage may have created a grey area surrounding my self-identification, keeping me with a foot on both sides of the fence, I have come to embrace that.

"To say who I am, to share where I’m from, to voice my pride in being a strong, confident mixed-race woman."

Whether mixed or not ,once there is black blood they are referred to as black. That is how Obama became the first black America President even though he is mixed.

That is how they are reffered to. Once there is a drop of black blood,they are referred to as black no matter how white their skins are. It all started during the time of slave trade o. All the mixed babies/mulattos the slave masters were breeding with their black slaves were ostracized and treated equally with thir mothers as slaves and termed black cos of their hatred for the black race,but now some goodness are coming from such liaisons shouldn't the black take the glory too?

I think it's highly disrespectful to her father that people are calling her a black woman. She's not black for crying out loud. We are no more in the days of slavery where a mixed child is refered to as black. Her father has always been and is still in her life so why would people choose to erase her white side?
