2. She created, contributes to andf runs a lifestyle website called The Tig.
3. Humanitarian work is a huge passion of hers.
Earlier this year, Markle became the Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada, traveling to Rwanda for the Clean Water Campaign.

“I’ve never wanted to be a lady who lunches – I’ve always wanted to be a woman who works,” she's written in the past. “And this type of work is what feeds my soul, and fuels my purpose. The degree to which I can do that both on and off camera is a direct perk of my job.”
4. Show business runs in her genes.
Markle has taken to her site to talk about her father who has also worked in TV. “My father was the lighting director on two television shows as I was growing up. And there I was, behind the scenes of a glossy soap opera and a TV sitcom, surrounded by famous actors and their glam teams, multi-million dollar budgets, and crew lunches that always included filet mignon and enough sweets to make you think you were at Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory,” Markle wrote in her blog.
“What I didn’t know then was that just twenty years later I would appeal to the executives on my show to ensure that our extra filet mignon and sweets aplenty were no longer thrown away, but rather donated to a soup kitchen I had been volunteering at since my arrival in Toronto. Or that they would say, ‘Yes.'”
5. The actress has been married before.
The Hollywood Reporter claimed Markle married film producer Trevor Engelson in September 2011. However, the exes brokeup two years later for unknown reasons.
