Meghan Markle’s Surprising Job Before She Was Famous Has Been Revealed

Such a talent!

Meghan Markle is a woman of many talents: actress, activist, Deal Or No Deal model, and as we’ve just discovered, calligraphist.

Before Markle became famous as an actress, she taught calligraphy, gift-wrapping and book-binding part-time at the Paper Source store in Beverly Hills.

Paper Source CEO, Winnie Park, said the bride-to-be worked at the store between 2004-05.

“It was her part-time job as she was going through auditions,” Park told PEOPLE. “She taught calligraphy and hosted a group of customers and instructed them during a two-hour class on how to do calligraphy.”

Park added: “She’s someone who really enjoys the creative aspects of the job, who enjoys helping people and also someone who enjoys making creative projects come to life.

“Our sales associates are screened for their creativity.”

Markle herself has gushed about her love of handwritten notes on her former lifestyle blog, which we’re devastated has shut down (imagine posts about life inside the palace!).  

“I think handwritten notes are a lost art form,” the now 36-year-old wrote. 

“When I booked my first [TV] pilot, my dad wrote me a letter that I still have. The idea of someone taking the time to put pen to paper is really special.”
