Royal Family website unveils new bio on Meghan Markle
Meghan Markle is officially a royal.
The newly anointed Duchess of Sussex has a new bio up on the Royal Family website – and it barely mentions her 15-year acting career, focusing instead on her charity and activism work.

It details her interest in feminism, which started when she was 11 and successfully campaigned to change a Procter & Gamble TV ad for Ivory dish soap that used sexist language. It also mentions that she volunteered in a soup kitchen on Skid Row in her native Los Angeles between the ages of 13 and 17.
