Royal Family News – Not Just an Actress
The analysis comes from the world’s first search education background platform, Erudera, which is backed by artificial intelligence. It was based on the estimated incomes of members of the British family members who were not royals and had jobs based on their college degrees.
Royal watchers know that Markle was an actress before marrying Prince Harry in 2018, but before that, the Duchess of Sussex studied at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, and graduated in 2003 with a bachelor’s degree in theater and international relations.
Per PopSugar, Markle is but the second British royal bride to receive a college degree, second only to Kate Middleton. As Daily Record reports, the duchess originally wanted to study English but instead wound up taking a double major in theater and international relations.
