Queen Letizia and Prince Harry’s girlfriend Meghan Markle have THIS in common
QUEEN LETIZIA of Spain and girlfriend of Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, have a few things in common. Firstly, they both have had successful careers before their royal romances. They have also both been divorced.
Queen Letizia, 44, married Felipe VI of Spain in 2004.
The stunning brunette was born in Oviedo, Asturias, Spain and had a very different life before she met the king.
Far from royal roots, her grandfather was a mechanic and taxi driver.
Letitia herself was a successful journalist before she married Felipe when she was 32-years-old.
Some clear similarities can be drawn between Letizia and Meghan Markle, Prince Harry’s American girlfriend.
Meghan, 35, comes from humble beginnings in LA, and worked for 10 years after she left university.
She later secured a major role on the TV show Suits, which elevated her to stardom.
She worked as a calligrapher and as a suitcase girl on the American version of Deal Or No Deal while chasing her Hollywood dreams.
Both women were also married before they met their royal partners.
Letitzia was previously married to Alonso Guerrero Pérez, who was ten years her senior and a writer and high school teacher.
The pair were together for 10 years before they were married in a civil ceremony in 1998 at Almendralejo, in Badajoz.
Meghan married her long-term beau Trevor Engelson on 10 September 2011, just five months after Kate Middleton married Prince William.
The couple had been together for seven years before they tied the knot.
However, the nuptials weren’t enough to keep the pair together and they split in May 2013 and quickly sealed the deal – divorcing in August that year.
Trevor was born in New York and is 40-years-old, eight years Prince Harry’s senior.
He is a film producer, and his best-known film is 9/11 drama Remember Me, starring Robert Pattinson.
The couple was married at the Jamaica Inn in Ocho Rios, Jamaica – a country Meghan visited recently with Harry to attend one of his friend’s weddings.
Meghan and Trevor’s wedding lasted four days and 102 guests attended.
