Meghan Markle had slightly referred to her romance with Prince Harry weeks before they went public with their relationship. Kensington Palace had confirmed Prince Harry's relationship with the Suits star in November 2016. The duo reportedly met for the first time in May 2016, when they were both attending the Invictus Games in Orlando.
According to a footage found by Entertainment Tonight, in an interview from October 2016, Markle had hinted of their romance while attending the Create & Cultivate conference in Atlanta, Georgia.
Markle revealed that she had flown-in from London, the night before the interview. There isn't any reason to doubt she and Prince Harry had a wonderful romantic date there, perhaps on the banks of the Thames. ET notes that the actor was seen wearing the same matching bracelet on her left hand that she and Prince Harry wear together.
Meanwhile, the American actress had also opened up about the struggles during the early part of her career, and how those struggles made her a stronger person. She revealed that having been brought up in the entertainment industry by an Emmy Winning cinematographer for a dad, and a yoga instructor mother, she had an early introduction to that world. She said: "I was brought up in the entertainment industry, so it was a very comfortable environment for me, but at the same time I think what became abundantly clear very early on, beyond just the nature of how completive trying to have a career as a professional actress, is because I am biracial, I was able to get into so many more rooms...."
Markle also revealed that having biracial parents meant she got diverse opportunities and while giving auditions, she learned a lot about how tough the entertainment industry is. She revealed: "I ended up going into so many different auditions and you get the thickest skin of all time because it is very hard not to question something about yourself in those moments when it has nothing to do with you."
Adding on, Markle shared one hilarious and at the same time pathetic situation she faced while trying to secure acting roles. It was a story of how she had to crawl in and out of her car through the trunk.
"This epic day happened where the locks stopped opening with the key. And the clicker wouldn't open the front doors and I couldn't afford to fix this car and this was how I got from one audition to the other," she said, adding, "So what I would start to do is literally go to these auditions, park at the back of the parking lot and I would open my trunk... and crawl into the back of my car to the front seat to drive off to my next audition. This, by the way, went on for five months."
Of course fame came knocking in the form of television drama 'Suits' and now she is to wed Prince Harry. However, she's not just going to be an actress turned royalty, there is a reason why Harry chose her. Like Harry and his late mother Princess Diana, Markle is passionate about humanitarian causes. She is United Nations Women's advocate for political participation and leadership and has travelled to Rwanda and India to work with various women's programmes. "I think being able to give back and do any sort of humanitarian work will make your life feel a lot more balanced, because you realize where your priorities should be," she said.
As regards to feminism, Markle believes a woman can want to look beautiful and still be a feminist. "It doesn't lessen the fact that you are standing up for something that is incredibly important [to you]... You don't have to play dress up to be a feminist. You are a feminist exactly as you are," she said. "And so, I think for me, it's not even a question of how you reconcile, it's just what it is."
She added that she loves "being a woman, a feminist," and "being girly too." These things can no doubt exist together, as she says.
In other news, Radar Online claims to have learned exclusively that Prince Harry would be dividing his time between Canada, Los Angeles and London once they wed, as Markle will continue with her acting career in the US. An alleged source said: "Harry loves America and is totally open to dividing his time between Canada, L.A. and London once he and Meghan are officially man and wife."
