Before all of the ‘royal hype’ following her engagement to Prince Harry, Meghan Markle came from humble beginnings and a dear family of her own. Though she’s destined to become the newest part of the Royal Family, it’s important to consider the roots from which she stemmed from.
Just a decade ago, Meghan found herself as a “briefcase girl” on the renowned game show Deal Or No Deal. She then took her acting career in the direction of the courtroom, playing Rachel Zane on Suits for a respectable seven seasons. Having already gotten a taste of the limelight, the American actress is no stranger to the towering attention.
Stepping away from the lights, camera, and action, Markle was raised in Southern California, by two loving parents. The only child of Tom Markle, and African American born Doria Radlan, she grew up with two half-siblings from her father’s first marriage. Though how active they were in her life is in question, at a time like this, we inevitably begin to further find out.
Samantha Grant, 17 years older than Meghan, is a former actress and model who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, leaving her in a wheelchair. Upon the reveal of Meghan and Prince Harry’s romance, the half-sister began to make some questionable comments to the media, calling her a “shallow social climber” who “is not fit to be a member of the Royal Family”, which is quite rash to presume. She also accused Meghan of not assisting her financially, claiming “I didn’t feel a separation from her until I was in a wheelchair. The more high profile she became, she never mentioned me.” Interesting to utter, upon the revealing memoir she is currently writing about her sister.
