Oh My Gosh This Girl Has Talent


The story book life of pageantry, history and duty Meghan Markle is stepping into, is one this California girl could only have imagined. The sliding door moment for Meghan Markle came in 2011, when she landed the role as Rachel Zane in the Toronto based legal drama, "Suits." As Toronto Star columnist Shinan Govani put it, in Canada "she was a bigger fish in a smaller pond," than if she was just "another actress on a TV show in Hollywood." It was in Toronto, that Meghan Markle made deep connections with people and put firm roots down. "Toronto was definitely a curve in the road," he said. "It was a case of opportunity meets luck meets readiness you know." Meghan took those first steps that would put her on the fast track to royalty, which resulted in a what Harry and Meghan describe as a set up "a blind date" when they were introduced by a mutual friend in London. The actress trusted a few people in her close circle of Toronto friends with what would be one of the biggest secrets on the planet. One such friend, was her beauty therapist Lorinda Zimmerman from W Skincare in Toronto. As Lorinda prepped Meghan's skin for long days of shooting with "cold laser therapy," Meghan gushed over a new man in her life, who was also a prince. "The people close to her, we knew." says Lorinda quietly, "there was excitement... she was like anyone else who was falling in love. It was great." | |
