Taking a look back at Meghan Markle’s life up until her marriage to Prince Harry, you can see how it makes sense that she was destined to be in the public eye. Being a Royal takes a lot of work, especially when you haven’t been raised with the strict values that the Royal have to keep when they are in public and around one another. So where did it all begin for the Duchess of Susses? Now happily married to Prince Harry with a family on their own, was Archie’s mom always destined to be a Royal?
One could say, like all beginnings, that Meghan was shaped by her family, specifically her parents. Doria and Thomas had something of a whirlwind Hollywood romance. They were both involved in the television industry, but unlike Meghan, they were behind the scenes rather than in front of the camera.
Thomas and Doria met on the set of General Hospital in the late 1970s. He was a lighting director and she was a temporary assistant makeup artist.
