As the clock counts down to the wed­ding of the year, we can only imag­ine how Ms Meghan Markle, for­merly of Los An­ge­les, Cal­i­for­nia, is be­gin­ning to feel. On Satur­day at roughly 11.50am, three bil­lion of us around the world will watch as she steps out of her car­riage to marry into the world’s most fa­mous fam­ily in 700-year-old St Ge­orge’s Chapel, Wind­sor.

From then on, she will be­come one of the most talked-about women in the world, her fame sur­pass­ing any­thing that Hol­ly­wood could ever of­fer. For be­com­ing a royal is her big­gest role yet, and her life will change for ever.

Many view the Royal Fam­ily – nick­named ‘The Firm’ by Prince Philip – as a real-life soap opera and, in the days of Princess Diana’s feud­ing with Charles and the an­tics of cheeky Sarah, Duchess of York, it was. But Diana and Sarah were young brides, to­tally un­pre­pared for the rigours of royal life, and re­belled against it – with dis­as­trous re­sults.

At 36, Meghan has made her own way in life. She’s had a suc­cess­ful ca­reer, a good ed­u­ca­tion and ex­pe­ri­ence of mar­riage and di­vorce. She is go­ing into this with her eyes wide open, and we ex­pect her to be noth­ing short of her usual poised, gor­geous self on Satur­day (see page 36).

We think she will be a ter­rific ad­di­tion to the roy­als, and we’ll be watch­ing with our (fake) tiaras come Satur­day. Fol­low us on Twit­ter @Re­vealMag and In­sta­gram @Re­vealMagOf­fi­cial.
