Meghan's older half-sister, Samantha, once claimed that she raised her as a child.  But Meghan said that she has no recollection of this at all, stating that she doesn't even know the date of her half-sister's birthday OR her middle name!  Samantha has filed to sue Harry and Meghan over defamation and stands by her claims about her

Thomas Markle was caught on CCTV posing for staged photographs for the paparazzi.  Apparently, the photos earnt just over $120,000 and certainly came as an embarrassment to Windsor officials after they made a plea to the paparazzi to respect their privacy.

Believe it or not, Meghan Markle's relationship with Harry actually blossomed in the digital world.  It's a common way for people to meet nowadays, but I guess you don't imagine a prince meeting their future wife on Instagram... that's not how those fairy tales went!

Any bride on the morning of their wedding would be stressed but imagine if your wedding had about a gazillion guests worldwide!  The desire for absolute perfection would be intense!  In fact, apparently, Meghan made quite a big deal out of the smell in the St. George's Chapel and ordered air fresheners to be deployed.  To be honest, the smell
a little musty!

Different versions of the 
Tiaragate Saga 
have been told but it is said that the tiara we all saw Meghan wearing at her wedding wasn't her original choice.  She wanted to wear The Queen's astonishing emerald tiara, but was denied by Her Majesty due to its "
difficult past".
  It is said by royal biographer, Robert Lacey, that the pair "flew into a rage" when they were told no.  But, they were actually unaware of the 
apparently attached to the tiara.

I do.

And Engleson doesn't seem to have much positive to say about the break up either.  He said that he was absolutely blindsided by the divorce at the time and really struggled to come to terms with being single.  There were even rumors that she broke it off through the mail.

19. He is making a comedy about her

And what better way for an actor and producer to express themselves than through the medium of television?  The TV network, FOX, has greenlighted his idea for a comedy-drama that centers around a man whose ex-partner marries a member of the British Royal Family!  Coincidence?  We think not!

20. Suits ended her first marriage

Meghan was super busy and always away filming when she starred in
At the same time, Engleson had important work commitments back in Los Angeles.  So long-distance certainly wasn't for them and it's said that it completely killed off their marriage.

Her brother, Markle Jr. was charged in 2019 for driving under the influence of alcohol, and just 2 years before, was arrested for holding a gun to a woman's head during an argument.  And he blames Meghan for his homelessness and inability to secure a job.  He even said publicly that she should've got someone at the palace to help him with his situation...

25. Is the king jealous of her?

Harry has said in his memoir that when he introduced Meghan to Charles, he was unusually interested in whether the Suits actress would continue working.  And when Harry said no, he apparently let him know that he would have no money to spare them... This begs the question of whether he feared that Meghan would overshadow The Royal Family...

26. She couldn't invite her niece to the wedding

Due to her ongoing feud with her estranged half-sister, Samantha, Meghan was advised not to invite her niece to the wedding.  Meghan reconnected with her niece, Samantha's daughter, and it is said that they now have a sister-like bond.  But she wasn't allowed to come to the wedding!

Meghan has had to deal with lots of rumors that accuse her of taking Harry away from royal life and people believe that it was her plan all along.  She has even been accused of actually
to be rejected by The Royals so she could gain enough attention to be able to drop these bombshells.  Of course, the press tends to perpetuate these rumors so we are left feeling none the wiser!
