Rachel Meghan Markle was born on August 4, 1981, in Los Angeles, California, USA. She was raised in one of the most affluent African American neighborhoods in the US, the View Park-Windsor Hills often referred to as the ‘Black Beverly Hills’.

Meghan’s father Thomas W. Markle is a retired Hollywood cinematographer and Emmy-award-winning television lighting director.
Thomas Markle is known for working on iconic US shows including Married with Children and General Hospital. According to Meghan, she was introduced to Hollywood by her father as she often accompanied him to movie sets.
The relationship between Meghan and her father got strained during her teenage years, however, Thomas Markle is expected to walk his daughter down the aisle when she says “I do” to Prince Harry on May 19.
The former actress has 2 paternal half-siblings, Samantha Grant Markle and Thomas Markle Jr., from her father’s earlier marriage.
Her mother Doria Loyce Ragland is a clinical psychotherapist and a yoga instructor who has a masters degree in social work from the University of Southern California.
Meghan admits that she was raised to be a global citizen by her social worker mother and to keep her eyes open to the realities of the world we live in.

Meghan Markle’s Relationships
She dated LA-based producer and talent manager Trever Engelson for 7 years before getting married to him in September 2011. However, the marriage didn’t last as long as the courtship as it ended sometime in 2013.
However, Meghan found love again in May 2016 as she was introduced to Prince Harry by a mutual friend. They were set on a blind date and even though the American actress knew very little of the royal family, she and Prince Harry hit it off almost immediately They managed to keep the relationship under wraps for about 5 months but by October 2016, the media caught up with them and it became common knowledge that the pair is an item.
The news that Meghan and Prince Harry had a thing going was unfortunately followed by intense media scrutiny of the American actress.
Even for one who had been in the spotlight for quite some time, Meghan found it way too much to handle. Being the gentleman he is, the Prince of Wales tried to protect his woman the much he could by pleading with the social media trolls to tone it down.
The couple eventually weathered the storm of media harassment against Meghan and continued to wax strong. On November 27, 2017, they officially announced their engagement.
According to the statement released by Prince Charles’ official residence, the couple will reside in Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace. Definitely a happy ending to this one-of-a-kind royal love story!
