Before meeting Prince Harry, Meghan Markle was a rather active social media user: the former actress had a page in her Instagram and Twitter and even a personal blog.

I try to be very transparent in what I say, not to argue, but instead to talk about things that seem unambiguous, like the right to vote. I couldn't be proud of myself as a mother if I knew I wasn't contributing to make the world a better place,
