Meghan Markle’s sorority sister reveals how college prepared her for royal life
One of Meghan Markle’s sorority sisters has exclusively revealed to Express.co.uk how being a part of the college society has prepared her for life in the Royal Family.
Her sister from Kappa Kappa Gamma said the sorority’s core values, which include inspiring others and making a positive impact in the world, will help her step up to the challenges of being a royal.
Cari Hahn, who was a sister from the same sorority but in another chapter in Florida, told Express.co.uk: “Kappa Kappa Gamma is very passionate about philanthropy and giving back to the community.
“I think Meghan will be able to use the skills she’s learned and use them with her new role in the royal family.”
Ms Hahn, who works as a flight attendant, says Meghan still represents Kappa Kappa Gamma to this day.
She said: “Meghan Markle is a wonderful representation of Kappa Kappa Gamma.
“She embodies and represents our core values.”
The royal-to-be became a sister of Kappa Kappa Gamma at Northwestern University in Chicago in 1999.
A sorority is a national society for female students on the campuses of American universities and they are differentiated with greek letters.
These societies champion their own unique causes as well as fundraise for national and local charities.
Kappa Kappa Gamma has more than 150 chapters around the country creating a network of women who are brought together in one national sisterhood.
The society’s motto is “Aspire to be” and works closely with charities in their local chapters’ regions and their national philanthropy, Reading is Fundamental, which promotes literacy in children.
Ms Hahn says it is wonderful seeing one of her sisters become so successful.
She said: “It is so exciting to have one of our sisters in such a positive spotlight and I wish nothing but the best for her.”
In royal biographer Andrew Morton’s latest book Meghan: A Hollywood Princess, it reveals how Meghan’s sorority “embraced her warmly” when she joined, with the exception of a few members who found her “too assertive”.
Meghan visited Northwestern University in 2014 to talk about her role in the USA Network drama Suits.
During the event she snapped a picture of a few audience members who brought Meghan’s sorority composite photo.
