"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 TV show Suits, and her work for a humanitarian ambassador--the latter so reminiscent of Princess Diana's passions..."-- Provided by publisher.

After reading this book, hopefully she married Harry for the right reasons, not self promotion. He deserves to be happy.

This book was somewhat interesting. I have a problem with the conversations. How would the
author know what was said? It was just OK.

Well joe, they are mostly for show and they bring in a LOT of dough, Millions in tourism bucks and everything. Just look at all the hubbub about Meg and Harry! Yes, the days of actually having power are over, good thing, since they were spilling blood to win the Crown back in the day, of course. I LOVE them myself, and if they didn't exist they would have to appoint them like we do here, like the Kardashians and so forth! = )

Please, let's not go overboard with her to the level of the "Holy Di" overhype. And, what do these so called "royals" do? Hundreds of years ago they actually ruled the country, but these days all they seem to do is "Be Royal," due to who their remote ancestor were, rather than anything about themselves.
