Prince Harry has given Meghan Markle a DIAMOND ring but it’s for the WRONG finger, headlines have lamented.
Oh, and did you hear about the Cartier Love Bracelet that requires a screwdriver to unlock? He’s given her one of those, too. Surely it’s true love and what does the Queen think and why, why, with all this jewellery, aren’t they engaged yet?
The tabloids won’t stop the ring hunt.
Markle can’t do anything – answer her phone, reach for her handbag, take a sip of coffee – without the whole world (through a swarm of paparazzi) watching her third finger and wondering: Has it happened yet?
Please, please don’t let it have happened yet.
Two quick reminders:
One: Meghan Markle is more than her ring finger. She is an actress and an activist. She’s a public speaker and a businesswoman.
Since 2011 she has held one of the leading roles – paralegal Rachel Zane – in the legal drama Suits. She has starred in a long list of television shows, a handful of movies.
She is a Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada. She has travelled to Rwanda to campaign for clean water. She has worked with the United Nations, fighting for the Entity of Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women.
In 2014, she spoke at a summit for international charity One Young World. She fronted the podium to talk about gender equality and modern-day slavery.
Before her acting took off, Markle worked as a freelance calligrapher. She founded her own lifestyle website The Tig and, in 2016, she and Canadian clothing company Reitmans released a line of women's fashion work-wear.
She has also interned at the US embassy in Buenos Aires.
She has a double major in theatre studies and international relations.
