10 Reasons We Love Prince Harry’s Fiancée, Meghan Markle (and You Will, Too)
We were initially heartbroken when we heard Prince Harry had quietly exited the dating game and fell under the spell of a woman (other than us). But then we learned a thing or two about this new royal fiancée, Meghan Markle. And we have to admit, she's kind of amazing. She's an accomplished humanitarian, budding actress and, like, really pretty. Here, ten reasons Meghan Markle is officially our new girl crush.
She’s a Foodie
Before shutting down her lifestyle website The Tig (RIP), Markle regularly posted delicious recipes galore. Guess her yummy food pics on Instagram will have to suffice for now.
She Loves Animals
Markle has two scrumptious rescue dogs, Bogart and Guy. She encourages followers and fans to adopt animals by regularly using the hashtag #adoptdontshop.
She’s a Humanitarian
Not only is Markle a women’s advocate for the UN, but she’s also the Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada. Is anyone else feeling like an underachiever?
She Lives in Vancouver
Yes, Canada, along with dreamy Justin Trudeau. ’Nuff said.
But She Calls L.A. Home
Hollywood is in her blood. Her Dad was a crew member on the Fox comedy hit Married…with Children for a decade. Yes, the one with Al Bundy and vintage Christina Applegate.
She Starred in USA’s hit Legal Drama ‘Suits’
Markle played the role of Rachel Zane, a paralegal turned Columbia law student with killer pencil skirt game.
She Moonlights as a Professional Calligrapher
Once upon a time, MM supplemented her acting career working as a freelance calligrapher, and she was damn good. Robin Thicke and Paula Patton even commissioned her for their wedding invitations.
She Was a Briefcase Model on ‘Deal or No Deal’
Fun fact: She schlepped around briefcase number 26 for 34 episodes and it was never picked.
“I've never wanted to be a lady who lunches—I've always wanted to be a woman who works." We're into lunching and working. Usually simultaneously, occasionally twice in the same day.
She and Prince Harry Keep It Low-Key
The couple met through friends and started their relationship with a series of super-chill, low-key dates. They now enjoy relaxing and spending their evenings together at Kensington Palace, aka living THE DREAM.
