Meghan: A Hollywood Princess

Overview

From the New York Times bestselling author of Diana: Her True Story, comes a revealing, juicy, and inspiring biography of Meghan Markle, the American actress who won Prince Harry's heart. When Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were set up by a mutual friend on a blind date in July 2016, little did they know that the resulting whirlwind romance would lead to their engagement in November 2017 and marriage in May 2018. Since then, our fascination with the woman who has smashed the royal mold has rocketed. So different from those coy brides of recent history, Meghan is confident, charismatic, and poised; her warm and affectionate engagement interview won the hearts of the world. In this first-ever biography of the duchess-to-be, acclaimed royal biographer Andrew Morton goes back to Meghan's roots to uncover the story of her childhood growing up in the Valley in Los Angeles, her studies at an all-girls Catholic school, and her fraught family life-a painful experience mirrored by Harry's own background. Morton also delves into her previous marriage and divorce in 2013, her struggles in Hollywood as her mixed heritage was time and again used against her, her big break in the hit television show Suits, and her work for a humanitarian ambassador-the latter so reminiscent of Princess Diana's passions. Finally, we see how the royal romance played out across two continents but was kept fiercely secret before the news finally broke and Meghan was thrust into the global media's spotlight like never before. Drawing on exclusive interviews with her family members and closest friends, Morton introduces us to the real Meghan as he reflects on the impact that she has already had on the rigid traditions of the House of Windsor, as well as what the future might hold.

Reviews

When it comes to contemporary royal biographers, it doesn't get much bigger than Andrew Morton. His 1992 bombshell biography Diana: Her True Story, written in intimate cooperation with the Princess of Wales, offered the world their first glimpse at her troubled inner life. Though he didn't have as much direct access here, instead relying on Markle's family and friends, Morton uses his distinctive touch to give the soon-to-be-duchess the royal biography treatment. -- Entertainment Weekly Meghan already has made headlines for its depiction of the Suits star as a social climber...But Morton's portrait of Markle is mostly gushing. He paints this California girl as 'empathetic, self-possessed, sophisticated, poised, and charismatic, ' ticking off her resume as 'a successful actress, a popular blogger, and an acknowledged humanitarian.' -- USA Today
