Before Meghan Markle married Prince Harry and gave birth to Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, she had a steamy romance with a US marine.

When Meghan was 20 years old, she landed a six-week internship at the American embassy in Buenos Aires, Argentina as a junior press officer. At the time, she was pursuing a degree in theatre and international relations.

Although she was typically assigned office grunt work like drafting letters and answering phones, she managed to leave an impression on those around her. In the book, “Meghan: A Hollywood Princess,” Andrew Morton claimed the former actress was good at balancing work and her personal life.

“She was a willing worker, undertaking the tedious run-of-the-mill jobs quickly and efficiently. Her superior, Mark Krischik, now retired, recalled her as a young woman, who was good to work with and who carried out her assignments with efficiency and ingenuity,” the royal biographer wrote.

“Though memories are hazy, there was talk of a dalliance with a US marine tasked to guard the embassy compound. But what was more certain was her love of Spanish cuisine and the city’s buzzing nightlife,” he added.

In the past, those who were close to Meghan revealed the “Suits” star enjoyed having a good time. The Duchess of Sussex’s former friend, Lizzie Cundy told Fabulous Digital that Meghan enjoyed hanging out and chatting with guys.

“She was just a real girl’s girl, great fun. She was someone you’d have a really good time with on a night. She likes a drink, likes a gossip, loves to talk about boyfriends, men, and all the girly stuff,” she said.

“She was the most care-free, wanted a good time, didn’t mind being a bit naughty, and having a giggle. We got on like a house on fire,” Cundy added.

Although she enjoyed a laid back lifestyle, Meghan eventually began dating Prince Harry. The couple married in May 2018 and welcomed baby Archie the following year.
