Northwestern University shared Meghan Markle's throwback photo as a student


Share This Article:

Long before Meghan Markle was a future HRH she was a student at Northwestern University in Illinois and a member of sorority Kappa Kappa Gamma.

To celebrate her recent engagement to Prince Harry, her former sorority shared a throwback photo of a young Markle.

In an interview with Allure, she spoke about exploring her bi-racial identity at university: 

“I took an African-American studies class at Northwestern where we explored colourism.

“It was the first time I could put a name to feeling too light in the black community, too mixed in the white community.”

She graduated from Northwestern in 2003, where she initally majored in Communications before changing to a double-major in International Studies and Theatre.  After graduation Markle pursued acting. 

In 2011 she landed the role of paralegal Rachel Zane in Suits, a part she played for seven seasons before departing recently as her engagement was announced.

It is clear Northwestern alumni and current students are proud of their soon-to-be royal connections.
