Markle was raised on the West Coast with her parents, Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland, and later moved to Toronto, Canada, to tape Suits.
“It was the late '70s when my parents met. My dad was a lighting director for a soap opera, and my mom was a temp at the studio," she shared with Elle UK. "They moved into a house in the valley in L.A., to a neighborhood that was leafy and affordable."
After Harry and Markle announced their engagement earlier this week, the bride-to-be's parents released their own statement expressing how excited they were for their daughter.
"We are incredibly happy for Meghan and Harry. Our daughter has always been a kind and loving person," they said. "To see her union with Harry, who shares the same qualities, is a source of great joy for us as parents. We wish them a lifetime of happiness and are very excited for their future together."
