The former suits actress and Prince Harry’s wife, Meghan Markle, has several strings to her bow.
Without any doubt, it is safe to say that Meghan Markle is a woman of many talents!
Meghan Markle has opened up about her past jobs, sharing that she used to be a calligrapher. The former Suits star helped make ends meet when she was beginning her career in Hollywood by writing notes and invites. She told Good Housekeeping: “I used to be a calligrapher for marriages and events – that was my side work while I was auditioning.
She also said “I believe written notes are a lost art form. When I booked my first [TV] pilot, my dad wrote me a letter that I still have. The impression of someone taking the time to put pen to paper is really exceptional”.The former actress is famously known for playing paralegal Rachel Zane in Suits. Before landing her big break, Meghan Markle had a roster of cameo roles.

While Meghan may not have considerable time now to commit to letter-writing, she did direct her artistic talent into her lifestyle site, The Tig. She discovered how to balance her acting career with blogging. She used The Tig as a platform to communicate with like-minded individuals who have “a hunger for food, travel, fashion & beauty”. Despite being a popular blogger, Meghan shut down her website before her wedding to Prince Harry was formally announced.
Adding another string to her bow, Meghan is an enthusiastic philanthropist and charity worker. She was a global ambassador for World Vision Canada and travelled to Rwanda for their Clean Water Campaign. She was also an advocate for women’s rights and has worked with the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women.
