Meghan Markle looks absolutely stunning with her tousled hair and nude makeup. This photograph got over 50,000 likes, and a lot of love poured through the comments section. That said, with the title “Duchess of Sussex” came many alterations to her life, including her career, public appearance, and her sense of style. This means we probably won’t be seeing Meghan in a sultry selfie like this anytime in the future. Besides looking smokin’ hot (like always), Meghan Markle earned her place in the television world with her most recognized character Rachel Zane on the very successful show Suits. While this was one of her last crafts that we got to see, before landing this major role on Suits, she guest-starred on General Hospital, and was seen in many other TV shows like Cuts, The War at Home.
Yes, it was Prince Harry’s childhood friend Violet Von Westenholz who set him up with Meghan Markle on a blind date. Violet has been a part of Prince Harry’s inner circle for decades since her father is a baron and is friends with Prince Charles. She worked with the PR team of Ralph Lauren in London at the time and it was a work project that introduced her to Meghan Markle. The duo got close, and as is, Markle had become a part of London’s high-society circle by then, so they got more time to spend together. Ironically, Prince Harry was single and was looking to date someone. He obviously can’t get on an online dating app like others can but Violet came to the rescue. She knew both of them very closely and thought they were perfect for each other. Violet indeed was right about them hitting it off, and rest, as they say, is history.
We know for a fact that Meghan Markle was all about selfies, courtesy of her oozing hot pictures on ‘gram! While she enjoyed sharing pictures from her personal life, we thoroughly enjoyed getting a sneak peek into the Markle lifestyle. Her fans showed love by double-tapping on her snaps and poured immense love in the comments. As her relationship with Prince Harry got serious, we saw Meghan Markle’s Instagram game change for real. Of course, abiding by the royal protocol, she chose to keep her whereabouts personal and didn’t share as many pictures. Before she was officially to take on the title of Duchess of Sussex, her team had to delete many pictures. Let’s admit that we miss that fun side of hers, and boy, she looks absolutely ravishing in this full-face selfie! Our favorite part? Her eye makeup that’s on-fleek! Sigh, is it just us who misses her Instagram updates?
Meghan always looks impressively fit. Let us take a trip down memory lane; remember her tight pencil skirts and her off-shoulder formal dresses from Suits? Well, we have to give it to her, she looked sharp in those formal attires and pencil-high stilettos. Literally, every outfit looked flattering on her slender curves and her upright posture. This picture obviously belongs from before her wedding, where she gave her fans a peek into her fitness regime. Captioned “Wanna up your fitness game?” this snap straight up from her gym bought her over 12k likes. We’re sure she’s keeping up with her exercises even after becoming the Duchess of Sussex, claiming her slender curves even after she delivered her first baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. Although she’s carrying a little baby weight after delivering her second child Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor, we’re sure she’ll get back in shape soon.
Pets are truly family, and the same seems to be the case with Meghan Markle. This picture says it all. The former star of Suits has time and again mentioned how having pets can make a significant difference in one’s life. Her two pets – a beagle named Guy and a black labrador-retriever named Pula have both been her support system during 2020. While this year was eventful for people across the globe, 2020 was tough for Meghan Markle for more reasons than one. To begin with, her separation from the royal family got her and Prince Harry the unwanted press attention, then moving to California was made to be a big deal, and a heartbreaking miscarriage summed up the year for the couple. It was during this time when she spent most of her time with her pets and they helped her get through tough times. It takes us by no surprise to see Guy and Pula be a part of their 2020 Christmas card.
Did you know that Meghan’s beagle is a rescue? Yeah, she adopted the cute little pooch at an adoption event in Ontario, Canada. It was great timing for little Guy as the pup was soon going to be euthanized at a high-kill Kentucky shelter. The beagle was three years old at the time and Markle just knew that this doggo belonged to her. Her dog obviously started getting a lot more attention when the romance of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry brewed soon after. It was in 2018 when the royal wedding was announced and the beagle fan club on social media went bonkers about the dog’s fate. Many gave it the “rags to riches” title, and why not, the dog has made several appearances with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Guy moved to the U.K. with Meghan Markle as she moved in to live with Prince Harry after her wedding. We’ve seen Meghan Markle taking strolls with her dog and her first-born Archie in many pictures.
By now, we know that Meghan Markle is a dog lover, and she takes great care of her furry friends. So much that we’ve even seen Meghan walk her pooches while taking a stroll with her son Archie and husband, Prince Harry. We’re in absolute awe of this picture, where her pooch is seen lying comfortably in Markle’s lap. And might we bring to your notice the dog’s grey sweater? It’s donned with cute little brown buttons. How we wish we could get a proper look at the outfit. On another note, Meghan Markle looks stunning in her simple white tee and blue jeans. What we like the most about Meghan is how she keeps it comfortable and casual most of the time, and that hasn’t changed even after she took over the royal family status. Clearly, her comfort is of utmost importance. That said, she is also known for carrying her formal attire with much elegance.
Before Meghan reached the status of a royal or even a celebrity, she had a blog named “The Tig.” It gained traction as and when she started gaining followers and was one of our favorite places to scroll. Both her blog and her Instagram were filled with delectable images of food and drinks. In fact, being a foodie had a big part to play in her character Rachel Zane on Suits being portrayed as one. In one of her interviews with “Marie Claire,” she was noted saying, “I’m always on the quest to find amazing new restaurants and new recipes. I’m a California girl, right?” This image is proof of the fact that she can make even green juices look tempting. After all, they are green juices, not wine! Meghan has always appreciated and encouraged a healthy relationship with food. She has also said, “But at the same time, it’s all about balance. Because I work out the way I do, I don’t ever want to feel deprived. I feel that the second you do that is when you start to binge on things. It’s not a diet; it’s lifestyle eating.”
Meghan Markle is one of those celebrities, now a royal, who has made traveling look effortless through her social media. If you are one of those scrollers who make it a point to go through their favorite celeb’s social media updates, you know what we are talking about. We are excited to see what we will be seeing next on the royal couple’s official account. Of course, there will be no poolside lounging, all-night partying, and cute puns, but it would still be Meghan and Harry in their element with a touch of royal protocol. We will particularly miss catching updates of our favorite Suits star lounging with her bestie Jessica Mulroney. The two have even moved home bases together. Remember when Meghan was living in Toronto? In the pre-Harry period, this star was a major part of both Meghan’s life and her IG. Plus, the two ladies knew just what it is to party in style and wind down from work.
Meghan has never looked anything but her best self. With a natural beauty and talent like hers, we can safely say that imperfections only add to a person’s perfect appearance. We loved going through Meghan’s social media before she became a royal. Don’t get us wrong, we still do. But Meghan, in all her down-to-earth personality and her actress glory, was a sight for sore eyes. Let’s not forget her punny and wisdomous quotes. One of our favorites from her vacations is this one. There is more to admire in this picture than just the actress-cum-humanitarian. Taken, we believe on the Amalfi Coast, this picture is a perfect example of how to travel in style. With a physique like hers, we believe it is hard not to appreciate yourself. Don’t be fooled by the picture though, our favorite royal didn’t just spend all her vacation time lounging by the pool or the beach.
Having a fun vacation with friends or family is on everyone’s bucket list. That is if we manage to get through this pandemic sane and with enough savings! It is part of the reason why we keep going back to pictures like these. It makes us wonder, do stars even have to think about money? Just kidding, they obviously do! Man, vacations are a real piece of work. Glad at least our star crushes manage to get some smoldering and some who-cares-I’m-here-to-enjoy snaps. Although, if you think five to seven star hotels is all that is in this former star’s travel itinerary, you could not be further from the truth. Meghan, back in 2015, quoted the following to “Marie Claire,” “I always want off-the-beaten-path, Anthony Bourdain–inspired travel.”
In another one of her interviews, this time with “The Chicago Tribune,” Meghan let us have another look at what vacations were to her. She was quoted saying, “But my mom never wanted me to just go to a resort and not leave the property, and think that was all there was to visiting a foreign country.” Meghan has traveled as an actress for work and to chill. She has also traveled as a royal on duty. This is in addition to the traveling she did as the global ambassador for the World Vision project. During her trip to Rwanda in 2016, the celebrity witnessed how important it is to have access to clean water; how people were struggling for something as basic as drinking water. It is also where her story with Prince Harry first started. It wouldn’t be wrong for many to say that Meghan is living the dream most girls have while reading fairy tales or watching Disney renditions. The two now have two equally adorable and perfect children, and to the spectator’s eye, their life is beyond perfect.
That particular trip to Rwanda will always be memorable not only for her but for royal-watchers worldwide. In what can only be described as a shock-and-awe journey, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry started dating. This was a notable event, as no one in the royal family had been associated with a POC before. But, let’s face it, some rules are meant to be broken, and some should not even exist in the first place! Their love bloomed, and the couple took off to Botswana to enjoy a romantic trip and each other’s company. But, the role of Rwanda in this epic story does not end there. In 2017, a couple of months after their first visit, Prince Harry proposed to Meghan Markle and professed his undying love for her. The ring that Harry proposed with holds a very special significance and a high swoon factor. It was from the very same country where this story initially started. We do not have words to describe how aww-ed we are at this moment.
Sure, we miss Meghan Markle hitting the town. But she still does it. In a slightly different circle with a slightly different style. This wedding might have curbed our unfettered access to the behind-the-scenes storyline of the Suits actress, and we might never be able to get over it. However, the royal wedding did kind of make up for it. The wedding guest list included more than a few of our favorite stars. Patrick Adams, Jessica Mulroney, and Priyanka Chopra were some of the bride’s closest friends in attendance. Edris Alba, Oprah Winfrey, Ralph Lauren, and Sir Elton John are some of the stars that had us jumping in our seats with glee. The ceremony had a lot of people in tears especially when Prince Charles stepped up to stand in for Meghan Markle’s father. The ceremony took place at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. This is one of those weddings that the world attended with bated breath and misted eyes.
Even before she was a royal, Meghan had an impeccable style. Ever since she appeared on television, she has garnered a lot of love and affection. Her down-to-earth personality, natural acting, and unmatchable beauty have all played in her favor. The star had amassed a reach of about three million followers on her now-deleted Instagram account. But thanks to the dwellers of the web-verse, we can still view these images that have been taken down. Also, thanks to the digital world since it is not possible to wipe off our digital footprints. Sadly, things weren’t as perfect as they looked to the world. In their two-hour-long interview with the queen of reality talk show, Oprah Winfrey, the couple were candid about their life in the royal homes. Shocking would be quite an understatement to describe this particular interview. The revelations included everything that is wrong with the world. Right from discrimination based on skin color all the way to overlooking of mental health.
Rounding back to the style icon that Meghan is, she was often forthcoming about her outfits and her makeup. Her Instagram often announced to the world where her outfits were sourced from. She even put on display all the freebies she received like the true “gram-fluencer” that she could have been. In fact, as we recall, one of her Instagram posts was in a sultry white shirt, the same white shirt she repeated when the duo went public about their relationship. Before we go off topic, we just want to state that Meghan not only pulls off her own style impeccably, but she also flawlessly channelizes Princess Diana’s outfits. Oh, did you know that a while after we could no longer browse through Markle’s Insta account it mysteriously reappeared? While this led to some speculating about the relationship status of the star, it was a mere glitch of the application. Talk about disappointment, eh?
