Meghan Markle wears the same £369 leather skirt as Queen Letizia in royal style double-up

Meghan Markle, 38, and Prince Harry, 35, will join The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust and One Young World to look at how young leaders are driving meaningful change for empowering women. For the event, Meghan wore a red leather Selrita skirt from BOSS, £369.

A body language expert looked at the footage, and also at the famed Martin Bashir interview with Princess Diana – fans had been drawing comparisons between the two.

Judi James, body language expert, said: “Harry quite understandably appears haunted by the experiences of his mother and worried his wife might suffer in the same way.

“Meghan’s sudden switch to an eye-expression of intense vulnerability during her interview with Tom Bradbury did create some worrying echoes of Diana’s profoundly sad and vulnerable eye expressions during her interview with Martin Bashir, but overall comparing the two women is probably unjustified.”

It is no surprise that Meghan has been inspired by Queen Letizia’s wardrobe, with the royal regularly gracing style pages thanks to her canny use of high street and designer, mixed with the lavish royal jewellery she has access to.

Who is Meghan Markle? Quick profile

Meghan Markle was born Rachel Meghan Markle, on August 4, 1981 to parents Doria Ragland and father Thomas Markle. Her father was previously married to Roslyn Loveless and Meghan has two elder half sibling – sister Samantha Markle and brother Thomas Markle Junior.


Meghan’s first television appearance in the USA was in an episode of the medical drama General Hospital in 2002. She later moved on to roles in CSI, Without a Trace and Castle along with bit parts in Hollywood films including Get Him to the Greek, Remember Me and Horrible Bosses.

Meghan was also a “briefcase girl” on Deal or No Deal – but her most famous role was as Rachel Zane in legal drama Suits, which launched in 2011. She was written out in the finale of the seventh series when her character got married, which aired in April 2018 – just before she got married herself.

Charity and humanitarian work

Meghan Markle’s career in television has gone hand-in-hand with her support for causes close to her heart.

She wrote about the stigma around menstrual health in an article for Time magazine and was a Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada – with whom she travelled to Rwanda for the charity’s Clean Water Campaign.

And her commitment to gender equality has seen her work with the United Nations – receiving a standing ovation in 2015 for her speech to mark International Women’s Day.


In September 2011, she wed film producer Trevor Engelson, who she began dating in 2004. But the pair divorced two years later in August 2013, citing irreconcilable difference.

She was in a relationship with celebrity chef Cory Vitiello for almost two years, before they broke it off in 2016 but the two remain good friends.

And in June 2016, she met Prince Harry on a blind date set up by a mutual friend. Their relationship began in October that year and just over one year later, on November 27, 2017, the pair announced their engagement. They married on May 19, 2018 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

Meghan’s heritage

Some have claimed Meghan Markle is the first mixed-race member of the Royal Family. Historians are still arguing about Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III.

But Meghan will be the first royal to openly embrace a mixed-race heritage. She has written about the difficulties of being a biracial actress in Hollywood as she claims she is not black enough for some roles and not white enough for others.
