After Meghan Markle got engaged to Prince Harry, she had to make one big sacrifice: her Instagram page. After all, it’s just not appropriate for soon-to-be royals to have social media accounts. But luckily, many of her best photographs survived the purge, and the snaps show a fashionable, fun-loving woman who, despite her success as an actress, has always seemed down to earth and relatable. Here’s a look at her greatest pre-engagement hits.
The British royal family are considered pretty strait-laced types, but if anyone can get them to loosen up, it’s Meghan. During her Instagram days, for example, she was more than happy to post sultry selfies like this one. And even now, she’s pushing the envelope when it comes to high-class sexiness; for her engagement photos with Harry, for instance, she wore – gasp – a sheer dress.
