When it comes to Meghan Markle it is natural to think of the Royal Wedding, the couple “Harry e Meghan”, to the Royal family. But it should be remembered that Meghan is not simply the wife of Prince Harry, but first of all a strong, independent and certainly revolutionary woman.

Meghan’s first battles for women’s rights date back to when she was just eleven years old. She herself in 2015 had spoken of her feminist “awakening” during a speech for Un Women. The young Markle had beaten in a campaign against a sexist advertisement of Proctor & Gamble, which consisted of detergents for frying pans and pots referring only to the female public. The spot was modified and Meghan won a great victory: equality.


Meghan has always called herself a convinced feminist, but her commitment does not stop feminism. At a young age he began to volunteer, helping out in the poorest cantos in Los Angeles. He is also a passionate animalist: he does not tolerate hunting in any form. Because of the dedication to the animal rights of the girlfriend, Prince Harry, would have renounced and will renounce the annual hunting trip with his family.

The person who met her at school describes her as a perfect future politician. Forecast not far, since the Markle, before embarking on an acting career, worked for a few months at the Embassy of Buenos Aires in Argentina. To collect money from one audition to another, Meghan told the press that he had done the freelance Calligrapha: she wrote the wedding invitations by hand, taking advantage of the years of writing at school.


Her first television appearance dates back to an episode of the fiction General Hospital, in 2002. Period of highs and lows, narrated by herself, on the pages of a blog called The Working Actress. Online from 2010 to 2012, anonymously, Meghan was telling about the joys and sorrows of an actress’s career, the waste to the auditions, the depressions. A sort of daily secret diary, then erased with the arrival of his most known character: Rachel Zane, in Suits. But the blog was not only a relief valve, in addition to the tales in and out of the set, was about food and wines from the world, the independence of women, immigration, all through his opinion.

Alternative, courageous and decisive, able to break the protocols, we can not but consider it one of the most influential women in the world.
