But while it’s safe to say Meghan Markle’s relationship with Prince Harry has gone from strength to strength with the royal family no doubt giving the Suits star the seal of approval, the same can’t be said of the actress’ family.

There’s been little said on how Prince Harry has been accepted into Meghan’s clan – but that doesn’t mean the public don’t want to know what goes on behind closed doors.

In fact, a UK show named Meet the Markles was announced in June, with interviews with the actress' nearest and dearest set to be aired later this year.

So exactly who are the Markles?

Mum: Doria Radlan

A yoga instructor and social worker, Meghan is clearly proud of her mum Doria’s achievements, posting a heartfeld Mother’s Day tribute to her on Instagram last year.

“Always proud of this beautiful woman,” she captioned a snap of them together. “This was when she graduated from USC with a masters in social work. Honoring my mom, Doria, and all the amazing mamas in our lives.”

Doria reportedly divorced Meghan’s dad Thomas when she was just six years old, with the actress speaking openly about the struggles she felt growing up mixed race.

"'What are you?' A question I get asked every week of my life, often every day,” she told Elle in 2015. “ I… give them what they're after: 'My dad is Caucasian and my mum is African American. I'm half black and half white'.”

Dad: Thomas Markle

Former lighting director Thomas was the one who set Meghan on her path to the bright lights of Hollywood, with the future actress visiting her dad while he worked on the set of TV shows such as Married with Children.
