Before she made tabloid headlines as Prince Harry’s significant other (and, as of November 2017, his future bride), Meghan Markle was turning heads as an actress and model. There’s no doubt that she’s an intriguing woman, but there may be more to her than meets the eye.
What is it about this woman that has so captivated the world’s attention? It’s more than her good looks or her status as a royal’s significant other. Markle is also known for her humanitarian work and her activism. She is an inspiring role model, devoted to philanthropic pursuits, which is a large part of the reason that many people are speculating that she is royal material.
If there is such a thing as an American princess, Markle is it. She’s a self-made woman with beauty, grace, and charm. Of course, no fairy tale is without its setbacks. From struggling with her multiracial identity as a child, to a very public divorce, Markle’s struggles have only made her emerge as a stronger woman.
