Meghan Markle: Duchess of Sussex

Before her marriage to Prince Harry of Great Britain in May 2018, Meghan Markle, born August 4, 1981, was recognized as an actress, philanthropist and blogger. She appeared in both movies and TV series, best known for her ongoing role of Rachel Zane in Suits on the USA network.


In January 2018, due to her impending royal status, Markle followed tradition and shut down all of her social media accounts, including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. She had previously discontinued her popular lifestyle blog, The Tig, in 2017. Markle also voluntarily retired from her acting career in 2018 by starring in her last season of Suits.

But none of that means the new Duchess of Sussex won’t be able to fill her calendar with new responsibilities. In fact, she’s already been appointed Patron of the Royal Foundation and Commonwealth Youth Ambassador.

Grace Kelly: Princess of Monaco

Before marrying Prince Rainier III of Monaco in 1956 and becoming Princess Grace, Kelly was a leading Hollywood film star, starring in over 11 films and more than 60 TV shows.

Once married, Kelly left acting and was required to give up her American citizenship. Her husband, Prince Rainier, even went so far as to ban her films in Monaco. To fill the void, she involved herself in various cultural and charitable organizations.

Grace Kelly and the prince had three children: Princess Caroline, Prince Albert and Princess Stephanie. Kelly never returned to acting. On September 13, 1982, when Kelly was just 52, she had a stroke while driving, suffered a crash and subsequently died in the hospital a short time later.
