The amazing Meghan Markle has officially won our hearts


Meghan Markle embraces humanitarianism as she becomes an official member of the royal family, winning our hearts as our Wonder Woman of the Week.

From her excited yet self-assured presence at her first public appearance with Prince Harry to her walk down the aisle at her fairy-tale of a wedding, Meghan Markle has become a royal role model. And even beyond her stunning style and her success at going from a casual California gal to a member of the royal family, Markle wins Wonder Woman of the Week for her passion for humanitarianism.

Meghan Markle, Prince Harry are passionate about helping others

Talking with ABC News, one of Meghan’s closest friends revealed that Prince Harry’s bride has always been a believer in taking time to help others. Markle’s BFF Janina Gavankar has known Meghan for almost 15 years, calling her “magnetic” and “brilliant.”

When Harry persuaded Markle to travel to Botswana to help with his own philanthropic efforts, she was “pleasantly surprised.” Both Harry and Meghan invest themselves in their humanitarian work. Her friend also pointed out that the former actress has been humble in her efforts to help others rather than seek publicity for her good works:

“[Meghan Markle has] always made time for philanthropic endeavors,” her friend said. “It could be one day helping at a charity event and it could be an entire trip that she’s told nobody about to go help people in India.”

Prince Harry shares that same desire to keep his “good work” under the publicity radar, according to Gavanker, who believes that Meghan’s and Harry’s philanthropic approach to life caused them to fall in love.

Meghan Markle creates a bridge between the entertainment world and the royal family

Meghan Markle made history when she says “I do” to Prince Harry during their wedding ceremony, pointed out by royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams. As a divorced American actress and activist who is mixed race, Meghan symbolizes a “link between two worlds,” said Fitzwilliams.

The expert on the royal family explained that they represent tradition and ceremonies of the past, while Meghan comes from the entertainment realm. Despite the notable differences, Markle has received a “warm” and “welcoming” attitude from the monarchy, added Fitzwilliams.
