Everyone has family has its struggles, and Meghan Markle is no exception to that rule. You probably know the modern story of the American actress turned Duchess of Sussex. However, there are many amazing things you probably did not know about Meghan Markle and her family background. From her ancestral lineage to why her father wasn’t at the wedding, here are some facts that enrich the public picture.

1. Meghan faced challenges growing up as a child of mixed ethnicity

Meghan was often confused about her identity growing up. She did not want to choose one parent over the other. On top of that, coming from a mixed-race family brings about its other unique challenges. However, over the years (and through a good parental and friend support system) she has learned to deal with it all like a badass, and even has advice for other bi-racial young people.

Make a choice: continue living your life feeling muddled in this abyss of self-misunderstanding, or you find your identity independent of it. You push for color-blind casting; and you draw your own box. You introduce yourself as who you are, not what color your parents happen to be.
