7 Life Lessons We Should All Learn From Meghan Markle (The Duchess of Sussex)

First, I’d like to just concentrate on her smile.

Go ahead and have a look at that quirky smile. You would think that after being officially crowned a member of the British Royal family and the Duchess of Sussex, that she would show less of her teeth. But no! She is going all out and giving us the whole shiny set. If you ask me, that is how you know a confident woman who is truly being herself, not caring if she’s royal or not.

Show your teeth to the world! Keep smiling

You don’t know how much good a smile can bring your way. Apart from keeping you young and radiantly beautiful, you just might attract a handsome prince!

Stay positive

Meghan is the daughter of  Doria Ragland, a social worker and yoga instructor and Thomas Markle, a Daytime retired lighting director. Maybe she never thought that she would one day end up in the palace. Not just as a distant relative or family friend but the princess herself.

I wonder how awful the experience of her parent’s divorce must have been for her. She was just six years old. The youngest of her two older paternal half-siblings. She must have been completely clueless about what to do. But that didn’t stop her. Surely she was remarkably positive and that mindset paved the way for a bright future.

Learn a thing or two to develop yourself

It takes a lot of guts and hard work to reach certain heights where the world can’t help but identify with you. Meghan Markle was literally a chaser of knowledge in every aspect of her life.

Meghan spent most of her life in Hollywood. She was educated at private schools, beginning at Hollywood Little Red Schoolhouse.  At age 11, she already had the boldness to launch a campaign so massive that a company had to change a national television commercial which she viewed as sexist.

This didn’t go unnoticed as the entire campaign was profiled by Linda Ellerbee on Nick News because of how successful it was. Meghan attended Immaculate Heart High School in Los Angeles. She also attended Northwestern University, where she joined Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority and graduated with a bachelor’s degree and a double major in theater and international studies.

In addition to studying African American playwrights, Meghan also served an internship at the American embassy in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and studied for a semester in Madrid, Spain.

Talk about staying focused and determined. Way to go girl! There was just no how she wouldn’t have become a great person after all this education.

There‘s always a need to diversify

That’s one lesson I’m sure gonna stick to. The girl understood what it really meant to not put all your eggs in a basket.

Before she was engaged to Prince Harry, Meghan Markle was not only a successful actress AND UN ambassador; she was also the founder of successful lifestyle brand The Tig. The Tig was Meghan’s platform of focusing on her love of travel, food, fashion, and beauty.

Don’t Give Up On Love

Meghan had been in a relationship with actor and producer Trevor Engelson in 2004 which resulted in a marriage in 2011. The marriage lasted only two years after which their divorce was complete in 2013. Since June 2016, Meghan has been in a relationship with Prince Harry, who is sixth in line to the British throne after they met on a blind date set up by a mutual friend.

Today they made it official. Something tells me her ex-husband wish he hadn’t let her go. If only he knew what was in store for her.

She didn’t let the divorce stop her from falling in love again. And look what a fairytale ending it is!

Keep it simple

It’s a wedding! A royal wedding but Meghan isn’t moved by the fact that the whole world stood still for her. She appears in a low bun, with pieces of hair falling out of place. A face so natural, you could hardly spot any make-up and a dress that ordinarily would have been fancier but was not.

You gotta love the simplicity of this princess!
