Everything You Want to Know About the Future Duchess Meghan Markle
Meghan is biracial, the daughter of an African-American mother and Caucasian father.
She’s spoken openly about her struggle to find her voice as a mixed-race woman. In 2015, she wrote about her identity for Elle Magazine: “To describe something as being black and white means it is clearly defined. Yet when your ethnicity is black and white, the dichotomy is not that clear. In fact, it creates a grey area. Being biracial paints a blurred line that is equal parts staggering and illuminating.”
