8 reasons to love Prince Harry's 'girlfriend'

November 21, 2016 17:44 IST

An actress and a humanitarian, Meghan Markle is more than just 'Prince Harry's girlfriend'.

Born in Los Angeles, USA, actress Meghan Markle is believed to be living a fairy tale romance.

She is rumoured to be dating Prince Harry, fifth in line to the royal throne of England.

The 35-year-old American is also an activist and an entrepreneur -- she has founded The Tig, a lifestyle brand that explores people's interests in food, travel, fashion and beauty. 

Like the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, she's a commoner.

While rumours are abuzz that a grand wedding is in the offing, here's some interesting info about the beautiful lady who's said to have captured Prince Harry's heart.

 

1. She has a heart of gold
