Meghan Markle has taken to her role as a royal so well that it’s hard to remember a time when she wasn’t Duchess of Sussex.
That’s right. Before the speeches, royal tours and ribbon cuttings, Meghan was of course a Hollywood actress, featuring in a number of high profile films.
Her most famous role however was in the show Suits, where she starred as Rachel Zane, for seven seasons, leaving the US TV series last year as she became a royal.
This week, the now Duchess of Sussex made a rare statement – posting a throwback photo on the Sussex Royal Instagram account to her celeb days.
The photo in question saw Meghan and Glee star Diana Agron on The USO tour, with a caption marking Remembrance Day over the weekend.
‘Today is Remembrance Day and also Veterans Day in the United States, a day to honour those who have bravely served in the Armed Forces,’ the photo on the Sussex Royal account read. ‘Thank you to all, for your service, sacrifice and commitment. It has been an important week to recognise those who serve (and have served) as well as to acknowledge their families.’
‘In 2014, The (now) Duchess of Sussex proudly went on @TheUSO tour with the Chairman of The Joint Chiefs of Staff, visiting troops in five countries: Spain, Italy, Turkey, Afghanistan and the United Kingdom. During this tour, The Duchess met with service personnel and their families and she was proud to recognise their service to the country.’
The throwback post continued: ‘At the time, The Duchess said: “I have always had such a profound respect for our nation’s troops and military families. I cannot thank them enough for everything they do for us.” #VeteransDay #RemembranceDay.’
