Meghan Markle, has made quite a name for herself as an actress on the hit show Suits, but is potentially better known for her role as Prince Harry's girlfriend of 10 months.

Markle was previously very open with her fans and followers, but since she started dating the Prince has attempted to stay out of the spotlight and even shut down her blog.

1. Her go-to dish to impress dinner guests

"There is honestly nothing as delicious, or as impressive, in my opinion, as a perfectly roasted chicken. It's a game-changer. I bring that to dinner parties and make a lot of friends," she told Good Housekeeping.

2. Her favourite outfit

When she's not in corporate attire on the set of her show, Suits, her go to is a pair of vegan leather trousers paired with a blazer and shirt.

"The key is to have your own point of view attached to it. Personally, I love cropped pants in vegan leather, a great fitted blazer and a button-down [shirt]."

3. Her secret to long-haul flights

Markle loves to travel and says the best way to pass time on a long-haul flight is with a glass of wine and good movies.

While roast chicken is a dinner winner, Markle's best recipe is for an all-American pumpkin fondue. We wonder if she's made this for Harry yet?

6. What you'll always find in her fridge

"Hummus, carrots, because I love them and so does my dog, Bogart, strangely, a green juice, almond milk, for sure, and a chia seed pudding I make every single week. So easy, so good."

9. Her penchant for handwritten notes

"I used to be a calligrapher, that was my side job when I was auditioning, I did calligraphy for a lot of weddings and big events. So I love the art of a handwritten note and I think handwritten notes are a lost art form."

10. Her most treasured possession

Markle revealed that one of her most treasured possessions is a small note from her dad that she keeps in her jewellery box beside her bed.

"The best handwritten note I ever received was probably from my Dad when I booked my first [TV] pilot, saying 'Meg, I knew this day would come. I'm so proud of you.' "
