Stunningly beautiful — and not in the society blonde style of previous girlfriends — it's not difficult to see why Harry might have been drawn to the 35-year-old Los Angeles-born actress, who stars in hit US TV drama Suits.Unlike many of his other conquests, Meghan is remarkably open with her private life — she's posted more than 2,000 times on social media site Instagram, where she has a million followers and has her own blogging website The Tig, named after her favourite Italian wine, Tignanello.Her father Thomas was a cinematographer, and worked on the hit US sitcom Married With Children.
Like her Suits character, Rachel Zane, Meghan is of mixed race. Meghan writes movingly of her childhood and her mum and dad's mixed-race marriage on her website: 'I like to think he was drawn to her sweet eyes and her Afro, plus their shared love of antiques,' she writes.
Her mother is an African-American former travel agent turned-yoga instructor (complete with dreadlocks and a nose stud), while her father is a white retired director of photography who worked on hit U. 'Whatever it was, they married and had me.'They moved into a house in The Valley in LA to a neighbourhood that was leafy and affordable. And there was my mom, caramel in complexion with her light-skinned baby in tow, being asked where my mother was since they assumed she was the nanny.'From her writing, it's clear that her heritage is a subject with which Meghan is deeply preoccupied.
Meghan was also made to feel uncomfortable about her heritage at school and so her father told her to create her own ethnicity 'tick box' on forms and even made her a set of dolls with a black mother and white father.
Miss Markle marks a change in Harry's taste in women, as he tends to go for society blondes. Her Suits character – a legal assistant – is filmed in one scene in her bra as she consummates her relationship with junior partner Mike Ross in the office store room.
