Most people know her as the former actress on the series “Suits” while others only got to hear her name when she got married to Prince Harry. Below we have a look at the work Duchess Meghan did before.

Duchess Meghan is known as the royal wife of Prince Harry and the mother of their toddler son, Archie. Before she became a royal she was an actress who is best known for her role in “Suits.”

However, her life hasn’t always been so glamorous and she didn’t start off as an actress. From 2004 to 2005, Meghan actually worked in a very niche role as a calligrapher out of all things!

The royal worked at the Paper Source store in Beverly Hills where she taught calligraphy, book-binding, and gift wrapping. Paper Source’s CEO, Winnie Park, explained Meghan’s role to People magazine saying:

“It was her part-time job as she was going through auditions.”

Park shared how the future royal would host groups of customers where she taught them calligraphy. Harry’s wife, whom he met after being set up on a date, would have two-hour classes to impart her knowledge.

The show wasn’t well suited for young viewership and a child who went to an all-girls Catholic school.

She appeared to be very keen on the visual art form as she also freelanced as a calligrapher. In 2005, she had the pleasure of writing the invitations for Paula Patton and Robin Thicke’s wedding.

In the past, Meghan even wrote about her love for handwritten notes. On her former lifestyle blog called The Tig, the royal shared how she felt handwritten notes were becoming “a lost art form.”

She also opened up about her father, Thomas Markle, writing a letter to her when she booked her first television pilot. The star confessed she still had the letter and appreciated the thought behind it.

Park noted how the royal was someone who enjoyed the creative elements of her work. The CEO also shared how Meghan found pleasure in assisting people and that she was very creative.

The royal actually got introduced to acting at a very young age because her father worked as a lighting director. He would often bring Meghan to the set of “Married ... with Children” and this lasted for 10 years.

The show wasn’t well suited for young viewership and a child who went to an all-girls Catholic school. Her father would often ask her to go help in the craft services room on set to keep her distracted after school.
