Facts About Meghan Markle Most People Don't Know.

Meghan Markle has become one of the most recognizable icons on the planet. But those closest to her would say that she was a completely different person before she met and married Prince Harry in 2018. For starters she was a Hollywood actress long before she was a princess. But that’s just for starters. Want to know what she was really like before she went from actress to a humanitarian, a women’s rights crusader and a royal? Then check out our list and prepare to have your mind blown.

#1. She considered herself your typical California girl, because she spent most of her young life there.

Unlike her royal husband, she had a humbler beginning. She was born and raised in Los Angeles. Sadly, her folks split when she was 6 and has two half-siblings from her dad’s side, but because they were older than her, she didn’t see much of them growing up.

#3. As part of the royal family, Meghan Markle has had to adhere to a list of royal protocols that forbid her from wearing anything she wants.

The British Royal family members come from a long line of tradition and ceremony. So clearly, they've had a long time to come up with their own codes of conduct, dress, and even their behavior. Long are the days where Meghan Markle could stand next to fans and stick her tongue out, take sultry selfies, or wear sheer tank tops. If the Duchess wants to stay on the Queens' good side, she has to stay far away from ripped jeans, black nail polish, and bright-colored outfits.

#4. Royal Protocols may forbid her from continuing her acting career, but you can still see her in movies.

Aside from the show “Suits,” she was also in films like “Horrible Bosses,” “Get Him to the Greek,” “Remember Me,” and “The Candidate.” But if you’re doing some late-night surfing, you might catch her in reruns of “CSI: NY,” “The League,” or “90210.”

#5. Television was a part of her life long before she became an actress who starred in the hit show “Suits.”

Her dad, Thomas Markle, was a lighting director. So, he brought Meghan to the set of “Married... with Children” every day after school for 10 years. But since her dad didn’t want his daughter exposed to the hilarious adult contents of the sitcom, he sent her to work at the craft services room.
