5 books princess bride Meghan Markle insists you read

In her now-defunct blog, the former actress detailed her favourite page-turners

In a few days, Meghan Markle will make history by becoming the first person of colour to marry into the House of Windsor. But before she became an international household name as the bride of Prince Harry, she was a celebrated TV star with a hit show (Suits), outspokenly feminist leanings and a bookworm habit. 

The actress had started a blog called The Tig, which focused on fashion, beauty, health and served as a vehicle for her to publicise her charity work. She was forced to wrap it up in order to marry the prince (along with a bunch of other weird rules that you should know), and left a heartfelt note for her readers, which read, "After close to three beautiful years on this adventure with you, it's time to say goodbye to The Tig. What began as a passion project (my little engine that could) evolved into an amazing community of inspiration, support, fun and frivolity. You've made my days brighter and filled this experience with so much joy. Keep finding those Tig moments of discovery, keep laughing and taking risks, and keep being "the change you wish to see in the world."

One of the personal bits of advice she had shared on the channel was a list of five books that deeply impacted her. From great classics like Antoine De Saint-Exupery's The Little Prince to Brendon Burchard's The Motivation Manifesto, here's every tome that shaped Meghan Markle's life.
