Meghan Markle was on Deal or No Deal and Twitter can’t handle it
Meghan Markle’s TV past has been unearthed and Twitter users are labelling it “the Cinderella story of our time”.
She may have announced her engagement to Prince Harry on Monday, but can you believe our Princess-to-be once appeared on the US version of Deal or No Deal? We didn’t think it possible, but this has made us love her a whole lot more…
Before making it big with her leading role on popular legal drama Suits, Meghan used to appear as a briefcase model on the gameshow Deal or No Deal. And with clips of her appearances now emerging online, Twitter users are finding true inspiration from Meghan’s journey of briefcase model to royalty.
Taking to the social platform, one user posted: “If Meghan Markle can go from being a Deal or No Deal briefcase girl to an actual princess, I can find the willpower not to wear sweats all 7 days this week.”
Another person wrote: “Meghan Markle once held one of the briefcases on deal or no deal this is the cinderella story of our time.”

Meghan Markle was a Deal or No Deal girl that opened briefcases for a living and now she's going to be a princess? There is still hope for me.

Meghan Markle used to hold a suitcase on Deal or No Deal and is now on her way to becoming a princess so she is actually the only reality star turned national leader who should be writing a book called Art of The Deal.

Speaking to Esquire in 2013 about her time on the gameshow, Markle admitted: “I would put that in the category of things I was doing while I was auditioning to try to make ends meet.
“I went from working in the US Embassy in Argentina to ending up on Deal. It’s run the gamut. Definitely working on Deal or No Deal was a learning experience, and it helped me to understand what I would rather be doing.
“So if that’s a way for me to gloss over that subject, then I will happily shift gears into something else.”
When asked if she had ever held the winning case, the actress added: “I didn’t ever have it. I don’t think I did.
“I was the ill-fated number 26, which for some reason no-one would ever choose. I would end up standing up there forever in these terribly uncomfortable and inexpensive five-inch heels just waiting for someone to pick my number so I could go and sit down.”
