Meghan Markle and fiance Prince Harry are seen together constantly.
When you win the lottery, your daughter could turn into a princess. Let me explain...
As you might know, British royal tearaway Prince Harry got engaged to "Suits" tv actor Meghan Markle in late 2017.
My wife, a conservative woman at the best of times, went crazy over the news. She's a fan of the royals because of the good that they do.
And it seems Meghan gets the choice of being a duchess or a princess.
Well, it turns out there's an interesting background story to Meghan's rise to fame and stardom.
Meghan, 36, rose to fame after landing a role in TV detective show Castle in which she played a killer who dressed as Sleeping Beauty (pictured).
But the surprise was how she climbed her career ladder. Her father, Tom Snr, won US$750,000 in the Californian state lottery in 1990 when the actress was just nine years old.
Her half-brother Tom Jnr, 51, says their father's win meant she got the best chance in life.
Meghan's step-brother Tom Jnr is seen here with her, aged 2.
"That money allowed Meg to go to the best schools and get the best training. Meg is someone who has always had laser focus. She knows what she wants and she doesn't stop until she gets it," he said.
"She was always the family's princess but now she's going to be a real princess and I couldn't be more proud."
She was able to attend the prestigious Northwestern University in Illinois where she studied theatre and international studies.

Now isn't that just the best use of a lottery fortune you could imagine?
