When Meghan Markle gave up Hollywood for the palaces and pomp of Britain and the title of Duchess of Sussex, she ignored friends’ warnings about wedding Prince Harry. And although she has had a happy marriage, blessed with a son, she has sometimes had to deploy the famous British “stiff upper lip.” Indeed, it hasn’t all been roses for the American duchess.
Meghan gave up a burgeoning career as an actress to marry into British royalty. Her biggest role was as Rachel Zane in TV drama Suits. On top of that, she made a name as a feminist voice with her website The Tig. However, she relinquished that too, as well as her social media accounts, when she became engaged to Prince Harry in 2017. The marriage went ahead in 2018, and Meghan welcomed son Archie in 2019.
