Before the engagement with Prince Harry, Meghan was primarily popular among the Americans, Canadians, and the Suits fans. The things had changed after November 27, 2017, when she became one of the most popular women in the world.

You can idolize or dislike her, but you can’t doubt that she has achieved everything herself.

Meghan was born in a multiracial family and soon, became a child of divorced parents. It seems like these two factors made a significant impact on her personal development. Both parents instilled human values ​​and principles of equality within her. At an early age, she became an ardent defender of women's rights and didn’t betray this lifestyle after the marriage.

The purposeful girl began to work as a teenager. She didn’t start from the glamorous positions. When other girls dreamed of becoming models or actresses, Meghan was taking out the trash. Perhaps, she realized how important and valuable hard work is.

As a student, she could have linked her future with diplomacy since she had an internship at the American Embassy in Buenos Aires. But the childhood spent in Hollywood due to father’s activity (Thomas Markle worked as the lighting director at the film studio) probably won over other ambitions.

To make ends meet, Meghan worked as hard as she could. She was a calligrapher, a model, a seductive 'girl with a case' on the game show Deal or No Deal, a blogger, and fashion expert on The Today Show.

Markle starred in commercials, TV shows, and even a movie until she managed to get a job in a popular series Suits. Before that, most of the roles were so insignificant that the girl's name didn’t even appear in the credits.

It was believed that she began to make her first decent money in 2011. At the time of the engagement with the Prince, her capital was estimated at about $5 million. Not bad for a girl that used to pick up trash.

At the same time, Meghan found strength and time to act as an animal advocate, fight for women rights, play sports, and get involved in cooking.

After becoming a well-known and self-sufficient woman with the opportunity to rent a spacious house, cars, and buy expensive clothes, she remained a simple and open girl. Markle spent a lot of time with friends and on social networks, which she had to give up shortly after the engagement.

During the official relations with the Prince, she has changed drastically. Once, the Duchess didn’t mind any work, loved shopping, meeting with friends, and could do anything she considered appropriate in her company. Now, she has a lot of assistants, an expensive royal wardrobe picked up by stylists, and a number of protocol restrictions.

According to tradition, the Duchess is no longer allowed to give autographs, share personal pictures, and even sit not by the protocol. She must be apolitical, observe court and public etiquette, follow the protocol rules in clothing, makeup, and even food. It is presumed that while Markle is married to Prince Harry, she won’t be able to drive a car, wear a miniskirt, or attend a night club.
