Markle grew up attending an all-girls school with a Catholic affiliation. “I went to an all-girls Catholic school for like six years during the time when kids actually had handwriting class,” Markle explained, alluding to her early love of cursive.
The charmingly self-deprecating actress also revealed that her Catholic school days were not at all glamorous. “Just picture me with my curly hair and a gap in my teeth and my little school uniform with Keds on,” the royal-to-be recalled.
2. Her first name is actually Rachel.
It's now a pretty well-known fact that Markle's real first name isn't Meghan. Harry's wife was actually born Rachel Meghan Markle. But you have to admit, 'Meghan Markle' has a great ring to it.
3. She spoke out against sexism at 11 years old.
Markle was an early advocate for women's rights. At the tender age of 11, Markle was outraged by a commercial that outwardly suggested only women do dishes, so the budding feminist wrote a letter to Procter and Gamble asking them to amend the advertising language.
