In case you’ve been living under a rock that doesn’t even have wifi, you’ve probably heard that Prince Harry has found a new lady love in this chick named Meghan Markle.

But who is she? What’s her story? Where did she come from?

Well, sit back and learn, folks …

(UPDATE: Since we originally posted this gallery, the romance has heated up. BIG TIME! They’re engaged!)

1. She’s an American actress.

Meghan was born and raised in L.A., and while she’s got several film and television credits to her name, she’s best known for playing Rachel Zane on Suits.

2. She’s smart.

Meghan graduated from Northwestern University, where she double-majored in International Relations and Theatre. International relations … like the kind she has with Prince Harry, eh? Eh?

3. She does a lot of humanitarian work.

Meghan’s worked in Rwanda for the Clean Water Campaign, she presented for a gender equality at the United Nations Headquarters, and she’s traveled to Afghanistan on a USO tour. Seems like she’d be a great fit for the royal family, huh?

4. Her father is famous, too!

Well, in a way — her dad, Thomas Markle, worked as a cinematographer and lighting director for such classic shows as Married with Children, The Facts of Life, and General Hospital.

5. She’s an animal lover.

Meghan has two rescue dogs, Bogart and Guy, and she loves them very much. Can you blame her?

6. Seriously, she loves her dogs.

Did this photo just make your heart grow three sizes, Grinch-style? Of course it did.
