Prince Harry and Meghan Markle first met on a blind date in the summer of 2016. Their relationship shortly grew leading to their wedding two years later. But, before becoming an official member of the British Royal Family, the Duchess of Sussex ran-in with celebrities in Hollywood.
She had several movie projects throughout her acting career. Among all, though, she gained prominence and obtained her big break on USA Network’s Suits. She played the role of Rachel Zane, the leading lady of one of the show’s main characters Mike.
Amid her popularity in show business, she had a few interviews wherein she revealed some of the details of her personal life. In one of those, Markle confessed about her first celebrity crush, according to the Daily Express.
