Keep reading to see everything you need to know about Prince Harry’s leading lady.
1. She’s a Divorcée
Meghan Markle dated Trevor Engelson, the owner of a production company, for seven years before the two tied the knot on September 10, 2011 in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. With 102 guests in attendance, the couple said their “I do’s” and looked forward to a lifetime of marital bliss. Sadly, the marriage didn’t last, and they separated just two years later. In August 2013, their divorce was finalized.
2. She’s Biracial
Many people are surprised to know that Meghan Markle is biracial. The actress says growing up with an African-American mother and a Caucasian father was difficult for her, and she found it hard to accept her ethnicity. When Markle hit her 20s, she truly began to embrace her ethnicity, and she now proclaims that she’s proud to have two parents of different races. In an interview, she stated, “I have come to embrace [it, and] to say who I am, to share where I’m from, to voice my pride in being a strong, confident mixed-race woman.”
