Now that American actress Meghan Markle is preparing to marry Prince Harry in the coming weeks, the spotlight is on her—and some of her past work! While the world was aware that she was a Deal or No Deal briefcase model during a brief spell around 2007, many were completely unaware of Markle’s iconic 2009 Tostitos ad. In the commercial, Markle contemplates the merits of different bags of chips. Expressing dismay that the first bag she grabs just happens to contain 13 ingredients, she then finds Tostitos. Pleased that the chips contain only three ingredients, Markle then proceeds to toss them in her cart.
Although it may seem like an inauspicious ad, it is interesting to note that all of Megan’s trademark features—her clear eyes and glowing skin—are on full display. And although the commercial was presumably shot about a decade ago, Markle still looks almost exactly the same. Indeed, the spirited future royal definitely gave her all to shooting this ad.
Of course, Markle’s acting career consisted of much more than a chip ad and a role on Howie Mandel’s game show. Her big break came when she was cast in the role of a lawyer on the TV show Suits. Hopefully all of this time in the spotlight has prepared Meghan for a role in the royal family, which definitely comes with its own unique set of pressures. However, Prince Harry definitely seems to believe that his new love is capable of taking on the task; he is so confident in the match that he has stated that he does not want a pre-nup.
