On April 29, 2018 — mere weeks before their Saturday, May 19 nuptials — SO featured Suits star Meghan Markle, who landed the red-headed prince. Now, as the couple steps away from royal duties and settles into an independent life, SO relives past moments with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

With the royal wedding countdown on in earnest and the bride-to-be in preparation mode for Saturday, May 19, what better time to luxuriate in bed and get to know a tad more about the actress, humanitarian, global ambassador for World Vision Canada — a Christian relief organisation which advocates for children — spokesperson on gender equality, former lifestyle blogger and, like our beloved Scandal star, Kerry Washington, a wine lover. Her blog, The Tig — she shut it down a few months prior to her change in status — was named for her favourite wine, and yes, she's Meghan Markle.
