American actress Meghan Markle has been dating Prince Harry of the United Kingdom for around a year and a half now. When they announced their engagement yesterday, the fans of the royal family all around the world were incredibly excited by the news. Another royal wedding on the way!
The world stopped on a dime back in 2011 when Kate and Wills got married, including the 23 million Americans who tuned in to watch it live! with but there are a lot of differences this time around.
One of the things is, unlike Kate Middleton, now the Duchess of Cambridge, Meghan Markle was a celebrity in her own right before dating British royalty.
She was a successful actor, having a major part in the hit series Suits, she was a successful model, and has also been a prolific campaigner and activist for gender equality and other important issues in the third world. Go Meghan!
Her Instagram account makes for interesting viewing, as it shows some glimpses into her former life, before she was a royal-to-be. She hasn’t posted since April (now that she’s a full time lovebird!) but the posts from a few years ago show a young woman living her life to the fullest.
Some of them are a little risqué, and you can’t imagine she’ll be posting many photos like this is her new life! Check out the Instagram pictures below.
Cracking open a cold one
This first one is pretty PG – just a very nice picture of Meghan soaking up some sun on vacation in Greece. I wonder if she got paid by that beer company to promote their brand!
This cheeky butt picture ain’t exactly royal! It’s kinda been breaking the internet since it was rediscovered yesterday. It’s surprising she didn’t think to go back and delete it! Or maybe she’s proud of it – I would be. I wonder if she’ll still be able to eat pizza in her new royal life?
Pout and about
Meghan appears to be loving life in this pic posted after a party in NYC. And it’s not hard to see why – she’s a beautiful young woman with the world at her feet. And great hair.
Stylish and supple
A bikini-clad Megan pulls off an impressive yoga pose on vacation. Looks pretty dangerous on those rocks, but it’s still pretty impressive! Almost as impressive as the amount of likes she got on that photo.
A cross-legged megan takes a selfie before turning in for the night. This bedroom looks nice, but I imagine her palace bedroom will be nicer!
Megan enjoys some tequila sodas with friends in Ibiza. She’s tagged a few of her friends as well – I wonder if they will become famous by association now?
No extra comment to add here, lest I get myself in trouble! I love those boots, by the way.
Smile for the camera!
Meghan looks absolutely beautiful in this picture from 2016. She looks so healthy and full of life! It’s no wonder Harry said that he fell in love with her straight away.
Meghan laughs as her friend takes a picture of her swimming in crystal-clear waters in Jamaica. I’m super jealous of this girl’s life! That’s a great quote from Charlie Chaplin too.
You can tell buy the interviews that they have done since announcing the engagement that they genuinely do care for each other – they are clearly head-over-heels in love!
How do you feel about the news of a new royal engagement? I think it’s crazy that one of us American girls is going to be royalty! I couldn’t be happier about it.
