What duchess will be Megan Markle
Megan Markle on Saturday received the title of Duchess of Sussex. World media hastened to compare the actress with Kate Middleton. Megan does not have an aristocratic background, her parents divorced when the girl turned 6. Her father, Thomas Markle, worked as a light director on two TV shows for housewives – “Married with Children” and “Central Hospital.” Mother Megan, African-American Doria Radlan, teaches yoga at a fitness club near the house. Megan does not conceal this, but is proud of the persistence of his parents: at any opportunity he recalls that her father once earned a statue of Emmy, and her mother voluntarily helps the mentally ill at the hospital Didi Hirsch.
About his nationality Megan Markle speaks openly and with pleasure: “The parents created the world around me so that I did not feel different, but I knew that I was special. When in 1980, puppet sets were divided by skin color, my father gave me four dolls: a toy mother with dark skin, a doll with a white and two puppet children of both colors. “
Prior to the status of the prince’s wife, Megan had time to work as an actress, writer and editor-in-chief of the life style brand. Megan’s Hollywood career began with letters. “I was a calligrapher of invitations to weddings and events – earning money to have time to go to auditions. I believe that handwriting is a forgotten form of creativity. When I got a role in the pilot series of the show, Dad wrote me a letter that I still keep, “says Markl in an interview with Good Housekeeping.
It is difficult to name even one princess who does not engage in charity: this is an obligatory part of the program to maintain a good image of the royal family. But if Keith Middleton was not only philanthropic after moving to Kensington Palace, Megan Markle worried about global problems long before the relationship with Harry – since 1992.
In an interview with Larry King, Megan told how she came home from school at 11 and heard an advertisement on TV: detergent producers claimed that the woman’s place was in the kitchen. The girl ran to her father and asked in surprise what it was. Then Megan heard that her classmates fully agree with the text of this advertisement. The schoolgirl wrote a long letter to the first lady of the US Hillary Clinton with a request to influence the situation. As a result, the text of the advertisement was changed.
The main hero of Megan’s childhood was a girl from the most famous feminist poster – Riviera Rosie. “When I was little, there was a poster in my room with Rosie straining her bicep. When I saw that sexist detergent advertising at age 11, I remembered Rosie’s mantra “We can do it!” and wrote a letter to Clinton. “
Since the age of 20, Markle has been a charitable organization that supports children in disadvantaged areas, for example, in U.N. and World Vision. In 2015, the actress collaborated with the UN and spoke at the headquarters of the organization with a speech on gender equality on International Women’s Day. Markle standing applauded Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
