Here are 6 things you didn’t know about Meghan Markle

Did you know these things about Meghan Markle?

Suits fans had accepted Meghan Markle in their hearts long before the rest of us did, but ever since it became public knowledge that she was to marry Prince Harry we’ve all been big fans. The royal wedding was absolutely beautiful and we loved every minute of it. There are still tons of things we didn’t know about the American actress, though! Here’s a list of some of them…

Meghan is part Irish.

1. Meghan is not her real name

The world might know the 36 year old as Meghan, but this is actually her middle name. Her first name is Rachel. Indeed, that’s the same name as her character from Suits!

2. She was the most Googled actress in 2016

Although they didn’t get engaged until 2017, Prince Harry and Meghan already went public with their relationship in 2016. Everybody wanted to know more about the actress, so they started googling (as we would). It’s no wonder that Meghan’s name was the most googled name in 2016!

3. Meghan has been married before

Her marriage to Prince Harry is not her first marital rodeo. In 2011, she got married to actor and producer Trevor Engelson, who by then she’d been in a relationship with for seven years. After a short marriage, the two got divorced in 2013.

4. Her father is a director and photographer

Meghan’s no stranger to cameras. Before making it as an actress herself, she’d already had quite a bit of experience with the showbiz world. Her father worked on the set of Married… with Children.

5. Her favourite workout is yoga

Have you ever wondered how Meghan manages to maintain her beautiful figure? It just might be because of yoga. She reportedly loves yoga and makes time for it every single day.

6. Meghan has Irish blood

Everybody knows by now that Meghan grew up in the United States, but did you know she’s got quite an interesting family history, nationality-wise? Her mother, Doria Radlan, is African-American and her father, Tom Markle, is Irish-Dutch.
