Contrary to the popular belief that the royals have help with everything, Meghan Markle proves she can do things on her own. Sure, she's married to a prince, making everyone believe she's living a fairytale, but her real life is far from it.
With all the controversies and drama, Prince Harry and Meghan left the monarchy and opted to live a private life in California. But even before they moved to the U.S., the former actress was already living a much simpler life.
Meghan Markle's Simple Lifestyle
The former actress' longtime friends opened up about her simple lifestyle in an article by People in 2019.
As many believe she's living a glamorous life, the truth is she's pretty modest.
"We've all been to their cottage," a source said. "It's small, and she's made it cozy, but the perception of their lifestyle and the reality are two different things. Meg cooks for herself and Harry every single day."
