Some think she’s hit the jackpot, others don’t care, and still, others believe Meghan Markle knew exactly what she was doing when she became involved with Prince Harry. Whatever group a person belongs to, if any, the truth is that Meghan is now considered royalty and is one of the only Americans to have married into the English nobility and been accepted.
You might be interested in learning more about her. As a result, we’ve compiled a list of fascinating facts that you probably didn’t know.
8 Things You Didn’t Know About Meghan Markle
1. Learned Driving Stick Shift One Hour Before Filming
She had to spend an hour learning how to drive a stick shift before filming a movie.
Anyone who has driven a stick shift, manual, or whatever you want to call it knows that one hour isn’t really enough time to do much more than memorizing the gear shift movements and mimic what the trainer has been telling you.
2. Worked In A Yogurt Shop
When Meghan was 14, she worked in a yogurt shop. She once met Baywatch star “Yasmine Bleeth” in a yogurt shop and went all fangirl on her. Meghan learned a lot from Bleeth’s gratitude for her assistance later in her career.
She’s an outspoken feminist. To be honest, there is nothing wrong with feminism because it promotes equality for men and women.
4. Opened To Any Kind Of Acting Roles
Whether it’s an indie role or a role in a mainstream film or television show, she’s up for it. As of now, it’s an interesting question whether she’ll really be doing any acting now that she’s a member of the nobility.
5. Has A Romanticized View Of World
In some ways, she does have a romanticized view of the world. One can only hope that she is able to see the world from a different angle as well. For the most part, this appears to be the case.
6. First Audition For An Extra
To be honest, her career began slowly, and she had to gain traction before she began to get the parts she desired. So it’s fair to say she’s had to work hard to get where she is.
7. Her Real Name
Meghan’s real name is Rachel, just like her character on Suits, so her full name is Rachel Meghan Markle. Markle has never stated whether or not she has always used her middle name or if it is a stage name.
8. Ambassador For World Vision
One of the things that drew Harry and Meghan together, according to reports, was their shared love of charity work. Meghan became a World Vision Global Ambassador in 2016 after visiting Rwanda to assist with the construction of a new clean water pipeline.
