The newest royal couple is already facing backlash from the media.
After the news of their relationship broke, Meghan Markle was met with serious negativity in the form of sexism and racism from certain media outlets. Prince Harry issued a statement in her defense, addressing the “wave of abuse and harassment.”
After Prince Harry’s heroic run to her defense, it’s easy to see why they are starry-eyed for each other. Markle, 35, and Prince Harry, 32, share many of the same interests — particularly their love for humanitarianism. Markle isn’t just a glamorous actress from Hollywood; she splits her time between her glitzy life and a charitable one. She writes about her work in both fields on her lifestyle website, The Tig, where she’s personally interviewed inspirational women like Serena Williams and Priyanka Chopra.
Although this is Markle’s first royal relationship, it is not her first serious relationship. The star was previously married to film producer Trevor Engelson for two years. With the way things are looking, the Suits actress may have a royal wedding in the future. (We can hope at least!) Although the couple is already facing negativity, it’s undeniable that the royal heartthrob is serious about the stunning Suits actress. Sources say Harry has already introduced Markle to his father, Prince Charles. “Harry is pretty serious about her and she is pretty serious about him,” says one source.
