25 surprising facts you won’t believe about Meghan Markle

D are slave ancestors

In addition to being geographically distant, their origins are very different. While Prince Harry’s ancestors fought for their respective kingdoms, Meghan’s were enslaved in order to work on a plantation in Jonesboro, Georgia, USA. There was a huge difference because of which, Meghan felt like she didn’t belong to the Royal family and wanted to move out of it with her husband. It is said that Meghan was the one who suggested that the two move out of the palace and step down as working members of the royal family, in order to live a life by their own rules and financial freedom.

Meghan’s oldest ancestor dates back to 1830, according to The Times newspaper, being a man named Richard Ragland, who lived as a slave near Jonesboro. Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland (black skinned) still has the same last name. Doria and Meghan’s father Thomas Markle (white skinned) divorced when little Meghan was just 6 years old. However, married or not, we can only see that this union has borne fruit. After all, Meghan is a very beautiful woman and has a voice of her own that she often uses to voice support for women of colour.
