6 Things To Know About Meghan Markle

What to know about the future member of the royal family.

Everyone can't stop talking about Meghan Markle, ever since she got engaged to the royal bachelor, Prince Harry of Whales. So what should we know about the future member of the royal family?

Meghan is American.

Rumors went around she is Canadian. However, Markle was born in Los Angeles. For the first time since 1937, an American will marry into the British royal family. This will give Americans just another reason to obsess over the royal family (me included).

She is an activist, promoting gender equality.

Markle worked with the United Nations to promote gender equality. She became an advocate for UN Women in 2014, and she wanted women more involved politically.

She was a regular, college girl, like you.

While earning her communications degree from Northwestern University, Markle was a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma.

She was a calligrapher.

While she was auditioning for roles, Markle’s side job was a calligrapher for weddings and other events.

She’s biracial.

Markle’s mother is African American, while her father is Dutch-Irish. Her parents met on the set of a TV show.

Meghan is not her first name.

Markle’s full name is Rachel Meghan Markle. When she marries Prince Harry, will she have to use her legal first name?

She’s best known for her role in "Suits".

Markle plays Rachel Zane on the USA Network show, now in its seventh season. Over the course of the show, Zane struggles to make it into law school, becomes a lawyer and finds herself in a love triangle. Markle will depart from the show at the end of the season. Her character was written out of the show over a year ago by the writers in hopes that Markle’s real-life relationship with Prince Harry worked out (It definitely did).

10 TV Shows You Need To Watch On Hulu

Hulu is slept on


I have recently moved to watch shows and movies on Hulu and Netflix. Hulu has a lot of great shows and movies to offer that aren't on Netflix. While Netflix is still great, Hulu is definitely starting to grow on me. Here are some shows that I have watched or have started watching on Hulu that I think are pretty great!

1. 11.22.63


If you love James Franco and Stephen King, you'll love this show. The first episode is a bit long, but all the other episodes are only 45 minutes. The plot line is pretty interesting. I also like that it doesn't tell you everything, it shows it to you and you piece things together.

2. The Act

The fact that this show is based on a true story is just insane. The acting is really great, especially if you watch actual videos of Gypsy, Joey King does a great job.

3. Castle Rock

Another Stephen King masterpiece. This show is riveting and really makes you think about what the truth is in the context of the story, and brings in some ethical questions.

4. Future Man

I've only recently started this but it's pretty interesting and funny.

5. The O.C.

The O.C. (TV Series 2003–2007) - IMDb


This show was great. Sometimes it was a bit annoying, but it is a classic show from the early 2000s. You really become invested in all the characters and your opinion may change on some characters because they grow and develop throughout the show.

6. The Handmaid's Tale

If you've read the book, you should definitely watch the show.

7. Obsession: Dark Desires


I just love true crime stories and this really dives deep into crime stories and the darkest parts of humanity.

8. Intervention

This show can be really sad or frustrating, but I think it's good for people to see the reality of addiction.

9. Smallville

Smallville (2001-2011)


I also started this one very recently and I've always wanted to watch it. It can be cheesy but it's pretty entertaining.

10. Brooklyn Nine-Nine


This is a great show if you want to laugh. I love all of the characters and everything they bring to the table.
