Early Life

Rachel Meghan Markle was born on the 4th August 1981, in Los Angeles, California. She has stated that she’s a proud and confident mixed-race woman; her father is Caucasian, and her mother is African-American. Her parents separated when she was two, and divorced when she was six. Despite the divorce, they both continued to have an active role in her life.

Meghan grew up in Hollywood, thanks to her father, Thomas Markle, who used to work in the TV industry. From the early age of 5, Markle was educated at private schools. Her high school, Immaculate Heart, was an all-girls private catholic school in LA. While attending school, Meghan began taking part in plays and musicals.

In 1999, she was admitted to Northwestern University. Between her junior and senior years, Meghan got an internship at the American embassy in Buenos Aires, working as a junior press officer. She briefly considered a political career, but unfortunately, her score on the Foreign Service Officer Test was too low for her to pursue it.

She graduated from Northwest’s School of Communication four years later (in 2003) with a double bachelor’s degree in International Studies and Theatre.



As Markle first began acting, she was working as a freelance calligrapher. She also taught bookbinding. As she says, at first it was really difficult for her to get cast because of her ethnicity – she was not white enough for the white roles and not black enough for the black roles.

She made appearances on TV shows here and there, some of which you’ll see further on in the article. Her first on-screen role was in 2004, as a nurse in one of the episodes of a daytime soap opera called General Hospital.

Before she finally got her first regular role, she did a number of contract acting and modeling gigs. She also worked as a “briefcase girl” on a game show called Deal or No Deal.

Her most noticeable role began in July 2011, when she was cast as Rachel Zane on ‘Suits.’ Her character was a paralegal, who later went on to become a lawyer. She finished her work with the series in late 2017, after over six successful years with the series.

Markle has also dabbled in the film world, playing roles in films such as ‘Get Him to the Greek,’ ‘Horrible Bosses,’ and ‘Anti-Social’.

Aside from being quite a successful acting career, Meghan also had a lifestyle blog called “The Tig,” which she opened around 2014. There, she shared tips, advice and ideas on a variety of topics, from fashion to travel and beauty, The blog was shut down in 2017.

In 2020, Harry and Meghan announced a five-year Netflix deal that would include productions such as docuseries, documentaries, feature films, and children’s programming. Although it’s not known how much exactly the deal is worth, it is estimated that it is somewhere between $50 and $100 million.

The first project that is part of the deal with Netflix has already premiered – it’s a six-part docuseries titled ‘Harry and Meghan.’ It explores their relationship and everything they had to deal with since it started, such as the British press not being accepting of Meghan.

Aside from the deal with Netflix, Harry and Meghan also have a deal with Spotify, Archewell Audio, which involves the production and hosting of podcasts. Their Spotify deal, signed in September 2020, is worth between $15 to $18 million. Meghan’s podcast, called “Archetypes,” focuses on women, and the first episode dropped in 2022.

In 2021, Prince Harry and Meghan gave a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, discussing their relationship, family life, and mental health struggles.

Meghan also wrote a children’s book that was released in 2021 titled ‘The Bench’. Harry’s autobiographical book called ‘Spare’, on the other hand, is set to release on January 10th, 2023.

As of March 2023, Meghan Markle’s net worth is $60 Million.


Meghan’s Salary

There’s limited information about how much Meghan actually earned from her acting career, but we know her earnings from three of the biggest movies she acted in – she earned $187,000 from her role in ‘Remember Me,’ $171,429 from playing in ‘The Candidate’ and $153,846 from her role in ‘The Boys and Girls Guide to Getting Down.’

As for her salary on ‘Deal or No Deal,’ it is reported that Meghan earned about $800 per every episode she stared in.

When it comes to her salary on ‘Suits,’ she reportedly earned $50,000 per episode. If you include her endorsement deals, which come up to about $80,000 annually, her yearly salary totals about $450,000.


Personal Life

Before meeting Prince Harry, Meghan was married to a producer called Trevor Engelson. The couple tied the knot in 2011 and divorced two years later, in 2013.

In 2016, Meghan began dating Prince Harry, of the British Royal Family, the grandson of Her Royal Highness, Queen Elizabeth II. Prince Harry is the younger child of Prince Charles (now King Charles III) and Princess Diana. His brother is Prince William, the future king of the United Kingdom, and his sister-in-law is Kate Middleton. Prince Harry and Megan were introduced to each other by a mutual friend.

In November 2017, they announced their engagement to the press. On May 19th, 2018, Harry and Meghan tied the knot at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. The wedding was the social event of the year, with several celebrities, such as Oprah Winfrey, Elton John, David and Victoria Beckham, and more in attendance. Recently Meghan revealed that it wasn’t their first time saying vows to each other – the exchange of vows actually happened three days prior to the wedding, in the couple’s garden with the Archbishop of Canterbury, although it wasn’t a legally recognized marriage.

As a result of marrying Prince Harry, Meghan gained the titles of the Duchess of Sussex, Countess of Dumbarton, and Baroness Kilkeel.

A few months later, in October 2018, the royal couple announced that they are expecting a child, and in May 2019 their son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born. Their second child, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, was born two years later, in June of 2021.


Stepping Down from the Royal Family

At the beginning of 2020, Harry and Meghan decided to step down as senior members of the royal family. As they said in their Instagram statement released on January 8, 2020 “We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent while continuing to fully support Her Majesty the Queen.”

As a result, the couple isn’t allowed to use the titles “His Royal Highness” and “Her Royal Highness” anymore. Harry, however, still holds the title of the prince, and the couple also kept their Duke and Duchess of Sussex titles.

They also aren’t founded by the Sovereign Grant anymore – it covered about 5% of their administrative and household expenses. The rest was covered by then Prince Charles, now King Charles III, and his Duchy of Cornwell estate. Due to their step down from official royal duties, that is no longer the case. However, King Charles III provided them with a “substantial sum” to help them transition to financial independence.

Finally, due to the step down, Harry and Meghan were no longer provided with the security arrangements that are normally in place to protect the senior royals. However, in July of 2022, Prince Harry was granted permission to challenge that in the High Court.
