Before venturing into acting as a full-time profession, Meghan Markle had to support herself financially by engaging in petty trading as a bookbinding consultant and freelance calligrapher because she encountered difficulties in getting assigned to movie roles since she had an unstable ethnicity.
However, she was able to work her way through and make her debut television appearance in the American daytime series, the General Hospital which she played a scene as a nurse. Subsequently, she secured roles in TV series like Century City in 2004, The War at Home in 2006, CSI: NY in 2006, Fringe, Get Him to the Greek, Remembers Me, the hit show Suits, among several others.

She was featured in the cover story for the issue of the Vanity Fair in 2017.

She met Prince Harry in 2016 and officially got wedded in May 2018.
The couple have been blessed with two adorable kids, Archie and Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.
Meghan Markle and her husband, the Duke of Sussex Prince Harry dedicated a lot of time in projects focusing on women empowerment, girls’ education, inclusivity and encouragement of social entrepreneurship. Working with her husband, she was assigned the role of a youth ambassador to the Commonwealth which involved overseas trips. She has worked on a number charitable organisations and travelled around the world in promoting social justice, human rights.
