From actress to duchess: how Meghan Markle has changed from the age of 18 to the present day. Photo
Meghan Markle is a very controversial figure in the history of the British royal family. The American actress and fashion model, whose maternal ancestors come from Africa, made a lot of noise after she married Prince Harry in 2018. The spectacular beauty with a rebellious personality has gained many fans and just as many haters. Some admire her fearlessness and independence, while others criticize her for her excessive audacity and disrespect for the traditions of the monarchy. However, no one can dispute the fact that Meghan is an incredibly beautiful woman who has always known how to present herself.
OBOZ.UA decided to analyze how the Duchess of Sussex's appearance and style have changed from the time she came of age to the present day. We have collected photos of the wife of the son of King Charles III at different periods of her life.
18-year-old Meghan impresses with the fact that she has hardly changed at 42. We are used to seeing that some stars look a bit funny and unrecognizable in school photos. You can't say that about Markle. Even then, she styled her thick, beautiful hair well and successfully emphasized her facial features with makeup. Of course, one cannot ignore young Meghan's nose. It looks much wider than it is now.
In 2006, 25-year-old Megan began her attempts to conquer Hollywood. Her appearance very clearly demonstrates the fashion of those years: thin eyebrows, intense and somewhat unnatural tan. At that time, she played a girl with a suitcase in the American entertainment show Deal or No Deal.
In 2007, Megan kept trying to become a movie star. Her warm and colorful appearance helped her in this.
During these years, Megan's hair has a subtle red tint. She experiments with the alignment of her strands, which is very unusual as the actress mostly wears light curls. The celebrity's style of dress is also very different from the one she began to favor after her marriage to Prince Harry.
During this period, the tabloids kept gossiping that Markle had undergone some plastic surgery. In particular, the shape of her nose has changed significantly: it has become thinner. The actress has probably slightly enlarged her upper lip too. In addition, Meghan is becoming the star of the successful TV series Suits, which requires her to look perfect all the time because she is getting more attention than before. The celebrity began to wear brighter colors and false eyelashes.
In 2013, the star's hair color became deeper and richer. The actress continues to experiment with hairstyles: she straightens her curls, then curls them again, and also begins to do her signature low-bun hairstyle at the back. Meghan always tries to emphasize her eyes with black eyeliner. In 2014, her style changed again. It becomes more elegant and sophisticated. Markle continues to wear makeup with an emphasis on the eyes, but it also becomes more refined and natural. By the way, during this period, the beauty divorces her first husband, director Trevor Engelson.
At the beginning of 2016, Markle demonstrated her love for so-called dramatic makeup. We can see her wearing a spectacular "smokey" in combination with bright red or burgundy lips. This year, by the way, the actress is getting to know Prince Harry. This is the first time the media has written about their romance.
This year, a completely new Meghan Markle is born. Internal transformations and dramatic changes in her life leave their mark on her appearance. The American stops acting in Suits and any other projects, closes her social media pages and her website, and moves to London.
Meghan refuses to wear bright makeup. As the bride of the grandson of the Queen of Great Britain, she prefers naturalness and refined simplicity. The former actress dresses as a duchess should: restrained but tasteful.
We can write a lot about 2018. The year of the grand wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. A year of changes that will lead to even bigger changes that will be the talk of the town.
In her official capacity as the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle appears with her hair pulled back in a low bun more frequently. Sometimes she leaves the front strands free so that they frame her face beautifully. As we can see, she even wore her hair like this for her luxurious wedding. By the way, an interesting fact: the bride did her own makeup for the important date. She refused the services of a celebrity makeup artist because she decided that it was too responsible for them. Kate Middleton, by the way, did the same.
In 2018, we can also admire Meghan's royal outfits. Of course, the characteristic hats add a special charm.
The year 2019 is even more special for Meghan as well as Prince Harry. They become parents for the first time. During her pregnancy, the Duchess's face noticeably rounded. There are no special beauty changes. The only thing is that Markle uses highlighter very actively, which makes her look fresh and radiant. But after the birth of her baby, the celebrity almost gave up makeup. She went out in public with no makeup more and more often, but her glow was still present on her face due to motherhood.
It's a pivotal year for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry and the entire royal family. The dukes gave up their royal status and moved to the United States. In one of her most candid interviews, Meghan complains about her life in the royal family. Her words become resonant. But there are no major changes in the scandalous star's beauty habits.
In 2021, the Dukes of Sussex became parents for the second time. After the birth of her daughter, Meghan Markle blossomed even more. However, people started talking about really strong changes in her appearance not so long ago, at the end of 2023. According to many Internet users, the Duchess lost a lot of weight. Some even suggested that she was suffering from anorexia.
Meghan's face has become sharper and her features more defined as a result of the noticeable weight loss. The Duchess regularly appears in public in trendy old-money looks: minimalism, restrained cozy colors, and classic silhouettes.
As OBOZ.UA wrote, Prince William and Kate Middleton are already being called the future of the modern world monarchy, including their children. That is why so much attention is focused on 10-year-old Prince George, eight-year-old Princess Charlotte and five-year-old Prince Louis. Internet users recently decided to play around and find out what the heirs to the British royal family might look like in 10-15 years. The images were generated by artificial intelligence.
