Because there's far more to Meghan Markle than her royal BF
Does she have any secret talents?
After graduating, Meghan worked for the US Embassy in Buenos Aires. Upon returning to California, Meghan found herself auditioning, modelling (she actually used to hold the briefcases on the American version of Deal or No Deal back in 2006) and working as a freelance calligrapher, where she produced letters and invitations for the likes of Dolce & Gabbana and for singer Robin Thicke’s wedding to Paula Patton. It wasn’t until she met an acting manager at a party and gave him one of her college films that she considered herself properly ‘discovered’ as an actress.
She does A LOT of charity work
Megan’s burgeoning acting career did not put a stop to her other job as a busy humanitarian campaigner. She’s just been named global ambassador for World Vision Canada and has also recently visited Rwanda to promote and support the organisation’s Clean Water campaign. Megan has also supported the US troops by visiting Afghanistan.
Have you read her website The Tig?
Not content with just being an actress/campaigner, Meghan also founded lifestyle website, The Tig, which covers everything from travel, decor, food and general musings.
She’s been quoted as saying the website is her way to ‘reframe content to include think pieces about self-empowerment’ and as well as bringing a more meaningful element to her career. ‘I’ve never wanted to be a lady who lunches’ she says, ‘I’ve always wanted to be a woman who works.’
She’s BFFs with Priyanka Chopra
So now you know! The two are regularly spotted on each other’s Instagram accounts, hanging out.
And most importantly for a prospective Royal, does she like animals?
Yes! She loves dogs and currently has two rescues, Guy and Bogart, who are all over her Instagram account with the accompanying hashtag #adoptdontshop.
