Meghan Markle was born and brought up in the United States. She lived in Canada for work and it was only after marrying Prince Harry that she moved to Britain. Meghan Markle has always taken pride in her American roots and also wants the same for her son Archie.  The British Royal family celebrated the Remembrance Day on November 11th, 2019 to pay a tribute to all those who laid their lives for the defense of Great Britain. Meghan Markle not only attended the Remembrance Day services but also remembered Veterans Day in the United States which is a similar day celebrated in the US, valuing the war veterans and their families.

Five years ago, Meghan Markle went on The USO Tour with the Chairman of The Joint Chiefs of Staff and visited the US military troops in five countries: Afghanistan, Turkey, Spain, Italy, and The United States. She met with the military personnel and their families during the visit. At that time, Meghan Markle said, ‘I have always had such profound respect for our nation’s troops and military families. I cannot thank them enough for everything they do for us.”

Today is Remembrance Day and also Veterans Day in the United States, a day to honour those who have bravely served in the Armed Forces. Thank you to all, for your service, sacrifice and commitment. It has been an important week to recognise those who serve (and have served) as well as to acknowledge their families. In 2014, The (now) Duchess of Sussex proudly went on @TheUSO tour with the Chairman of The Joint Chiefs of Staff, visiting troops in five countries: Spain, Italy, Turkey, Afghanistan and the United Kingdom. During this tour, The Duchess met with service personnel and their families and she was proud to recognise their service to the country. At the time, The Duchess said: “I have always had such a profound respect for our nation’s troops and military families. I cannot thank them enough for everything they do for us.” #VeteransDay #RemembranceDay

On the official Instagram account of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, she wrote, ‘Today is Remembrance Day and also Veterans Day in the United States, a day to honour those who have bravely served in the Armed Forces. Thank you to all, for your service, sacrifice and commitment. It has been an important week to recognise those who serve (and have served) as well as to acknowledge their families.’

Meghan Markle also shared pictures from the memorable tour. Before marrying Prince Harry, Meghan Markle was a famous actress in Hollywood. The two were set up for a blind date by Meghan Markle's friend and the rest is history. According to Meghan Markle her British friends had warned her about becoming a member of the Royal family. They had told her that the British tabloids would destroy her life. According to Meghan Markle, being an American she was naïve and had no idea of what life had to offer her in Britain. She narrated her struggle of dealing with the media in an emotional interview.
