Long before marrying Prince Harry and joining the British royal family, Meghan Markle had a life almost like any other. If she spent part of her childhood with her father, very often on the sets of series, it was only at the age of 21 that she took her first steps as an actress in an episode of Hospital Central. While in 2005, she had landed a small role in the film 7 Years of Seduction, alongside Ashton Kutcher, her cachet was not yet sufficient to live fully from her passion. In order to be able to pay her rent, Meghan Markle therefore had to get more accessible jobs and was notably hired by singer Robin Thicke for her marriage to Paula Patton on June 11, 2005. Indeed, the couple had asked the latter to make their invitations.
While her career struggled to take off, the one who would become Prince Harry’s wife worked as a freelance calligrapher and her skills thus enabled her to write all the wedding invitations for Robin Thicke and Paula Patton. In an interview with the American magazine Esquire in 2013, Meghan Markle had revealed: “I went to a Catholic school for girls for about six years when children were taking writing classes. I always tended to to understand cursive well. It evolved when I was hired as a pseudo-waitress when I was auditioning. I didn’t take care of the tables. I did calligraphy for the wedding invitations of Robin Thicke and Paula Patton. It was a great income while I was auditioning. ”

Gifted at this, the pretty brunette also ran two-hour calligraphy classes at a stationery store. Winnie Park, of Paper Source, where Meghan Markle taught, told the American People site: “She taught calligraphy, hosted a group of clients and taught them during a two-hour class how to do calligraphy. C ‘was her part-time job, as she was auditioning. ” On top of that, Kate Middleton’s sister-in-law had run classes on gift wrapping as well as book binding. An entire program !
