Born Rachel Meghan Markle in Los Angeles, the actress’ career started with minor roles in films and guest appearances on TV shows like Fringe and 90210. She landed her big acting break in 2011 when she was cast as Rachel Zane on the USA series Suits, which she starred in for seven seasons.

Meghan’s first marriage was to actor and producer Trevor Engelson. The duo tied the knot in 2011 after nearly seven years of dating but called it quits in 2013, citing irreconcilable differences. She moved on with celebrity chef Cory Vitiello before she began dating Prince Harry in 2016.

The couple met through a mutual friend. While they kept their relationship under wraps for months, Harry publicly condemned the sexist and racist trolls criticizing Meghan in a November 2016 statement.

In November 2017, Harry and Meghan announced their engagement. The pair tied the knot on May 19, 2018, in front of 600 guests at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in London and officially received the titles of Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Five months after their wedding, Kensington Palace announced that the couple were expecting their first baby. Markle gave birth to son Archie on May 6, 2019.

In January 2020, Meghan and Harry announced their decision to step back as senior members of the royal family. They briefly relocated to Vancouver, Canada, before settling down in California in March 2020. Their royal exit was solidified that same month.

Meghan marked her return to the entertainment industry in the Disneynature documentary, Elephant, which began streaming on Disney+ in April 2020. She and Harry signed deals with Netflix and Spotify later that year, going on to release the docuseries Harry & Meghan and her “Archetypes” podcast on the respective platforms. (The pair’s Spotify deal ended in 2023.)

In November 2020, Meghan shared she suffered a miscarriage four months prior. The couple welcomed daughter Lilibet, named after Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Diana, in June 2021.
