By now it's no secret that Prince Harry reportedly has a new lady in his life who also happens to be an American actress on the USA network series Suits. So while she's already a familiar face on TV, we dug a bit deeper (and by that we basically mean we combed her Instagram) to find out exactly who Meghan Markle is. And, honestly, we found that any man would be lucky to have her because she's just that damn amazing.

2. It looks like she's not the only one in her family who is in the entertainment business. In fact, her father was a lighting director on General Hospital (maybe that's how she got her first in?), and he also worked on the hit sitcom Married with Children. 

3. She's the founder of The Tig, a lifestyle blog.

5. And she's a wine enthusiast -- or she just plain old likes a good bottle of Pinot. In fact, in an article from Today, she cites wine as one of her favorite healthy choices.

6. She's been married once before to film producer Trevor Engelson, whom she wed in 2011 and divorced in 2013. However, they were together for seven years before saying tying the knot.

7. She is our type of #SquadGoals (watch out, Taylor). And I promise there's more where this picture came from


8. It looks like she's friends with Serena Williams -- and any time that happens, it's pretty damn amazing. 

9. She was basically born to lead the life of a royal -- okay, so not exactly, but she was nominated for high school prom queen

10. She has plenty of humanitarian work listed on her resume, from being a UN Women's advocate to a global ambassador for World Vision.

11. She's pretty damn punny funny. She's a jack of all traits (pun intended), and one of those traits is most definitely a good sense of humor.

12. She seems to be an advocate for animal adoption and she seems to love animals, as it's made blissfully obvious with each and every pup pic she posts.

13. She loves kids, which is probably a key quality in someone who could potentially one day raise a possible heir to the throne (or at least a royally cute little kid). 

14. She is with Hillary. And that says a great deal at this point.

Seriously. This woman is like a unicorn -- is there nothing that she doesn't do? We think not.
