Meghan Markle made history when she married Prince Harry in May 2018, becoming the first biracial woman to become a Duchess in modern memory. The couple has been a media sensation since 2016, and they’re still making headlines — although for a different reason. It appears that Markle may not have loved the royal life after all.
