In our childhoods, we commonly see and listen to fairy tales that involve princes and princesses. In more antiquated times, a member of royalty was thought to be a direct descendant of God and thus the rightful ruler and leader of the people. But nowadays, the remaining royal families are more nominal in status and don’t wield as much power. However, most royal families still own acres upon acres of land, in addition to being the literal face of money.
This leads to many young boys and girls fantasizing about being kings and queens one day and hopefully looking as good as some of the modern-day princes and princesses.
Read on to find out more on Prince Harry and his girlfriend, Meghan Markle.
The British royal family, headed by Queen Elizabeth, has nicknamed themselves The Firm. (Although mere mortals would usually be called ‘corny’ for nicknaming themselves, royalty, however, tends to get a free pass on things such as these.)
This is in no small part due to the stringent measures that guests must go through in order to enter into the living quarters of the royal family known as the Kensington Palace.
Most visitors require two pieces of identification as well as a written invitation in order to enter into the royal abode. This is largely due to the fact that members such as Prince William, Duchess Kate and Prince Harry live there.
But for one special lady, she ‘is waved right through’ without any sort of ID check or pat down. In fact, there are direct orders from the prince himself stating that she is to be treated like any other resident.
She is so close to the royal family (even more so with Prince Harry) that she has personal contacts with his most trusted aides.
Her name is Meghan Markle and she regularly corresponds with Prince Harry’s communications and private secretary in regards to the royal protocol.
Meghan Markle is Prince Harry’s girlfriend. Reports from some of Harry’s closest friends have indicated that he is soon to propose to his longtime partner.
According to an insider of the royal family, ‘everything is still as exciting as the first day they met, and they talk about the future all the time.’
She’s even been introduced to the rest of the family. William and Kate have given the Toronto-based actress tips on how to acclimate to the ‘royal spotlight.’
But who is Meghan Markle? Meghan is a biracial actress. Her mother is an African American clinical therapist and her father is a Caucasian lighting director.
Meghan was on television sets starting at a very young age albeit behind the screen. She would go to work with her dad who was, for 10 years, the lighting director for Married With Children.
She also graduated from Northwestern University with a double major in theater and international studies.
Before her acting career took off in Suits, she was a calligraphist (someone who has exceptional handwriting.) She did the handwritten work for Robin Thicke and Paula Patton’s wedding invitations.
As mentioned earlier, her career took off with her role as Rachel Zane in Suits but she has also made appearances in movies such as Get Him To The Greek and Horrible Bosses.
She is also the global ambassador for World Vision Canada, visited Rwanda for the clean water campaign and also worked with United Nations Women for gender equality.
And as for Harry, a source close to him has mentioned that ‘this is a love he’s never felt before.’ ‘He’s met someone who understands him on a deeper level and they just connect.’
