Obsessed is an understatement when it comes to our adoration of Meghan Markle. So it was a shock when we found out this huge secret that Markle has previously failed to mention.
Markle’s half brother, Tom Jr, has revealed in a recent interview with the Mail on Sunday, that their Father, Tom Sr, won the lottery when the actress was only nine-years-old. The winnings have been estimated to be about $750,000.
According to Tom, the winnings made it possible for Markle to attend top schools and colleges, hence paving the way for her to meet Prince Harry.
“That money allowed Meg to go to the best schools and get her the best training” Tom told the Mail on Sunday. Markle received a private school education and graduated from Northwestern University in 2003.
He went on further to talk of a possible marriage, “If Meg marries Harry, she’ll have won the lottery of a life but Dad winning the lottery helped us all.” Tom expressed his admiration of his sister in the interview describing her “laser focus” and determination to achieve her goals.
Markle and Prince Harry have been dating for 18 months now and it is rumoured that insiders expect them to announce their engagement soon! It has been rumoured that Markle is also preparing to move her two dogs to London to be closer to her royal boyfriend.
