Born and Raised In Tinseltown
While she’s one of the most famous women in the world, there are many Meghan Markle facts that even her biggest fans don’t know! For instance, many don’t know that her road to stardom always seemed a sure thing. In fact, Markle was born and raised in Hollywood. That’s right! Her father, Thomas Wayne Markle Sr., worked as a lighting director and director of photography on shows like General Hospital. It’s here that he met former makeup artist, Doria Ragland. The two fell in love and eventually had young Meghan Markle!
Sadly, after Meghan turned 6-years-old, her parents decided to part ways. She moved in with her mom, the two becoming very close. Of course, this is the beginning of a story that would eventually lead to Meghan’s mother attending her Royal Wedding!
Her Mother Is A Super Woman!
Since we all know so many Meghan Markle facts, you think fans would know more about her family. However, few know that Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland, is something of a superwoman! Throughout her life, Ragland has been a makeup artist, business owner, yoga instructor, social worker and, of course, fantastic mother. Talk about spinning a lot of plates at once!
Ragland’s incredible work ethic had a profound effect on Markle. These days, since separating from the Royal Family, the former Duchess has started taking on project after project, all different. It’s pretty clear who gave Markle the inspiration to chase all of her dreams!
