Meghan Markle had a surprisingly relatable life before becoming the world's most famous royal to-be
Prince Harry's fiancée Meghan Markle isn't a commoner — but she's not yet royalty either.
Sure, the 36-year-old actress and Los Angeles native was earning close to half a million dollars a year starring in the USA Network drama "Suits," but she didn't live in the lap of luxury.
Up until her recent engagement to Prince Harry, Markle rented a three-bedroom bungalow in Toronto, Canada, and leased an Audi SUV. And before she landed the role on "Suits," she was juggling a few side hustles to make ends meet.
