Meghan Markle's job on Wikipedia switched from 'model' to 'activist' three days before going public with Prince Harry

MEGHAN Markle’s job on Wikipedia underwent a subtle change just days before her relationship with Prince Harry was made public. 

The Duchess of Sussex’s profile on the site was tweaked so her occupation switched from “actress, fashion model and spokesmodel” to “actress, activist, humanitarian”. 

⚠️Read our Meghan and Harry blog for the latest news on the Royal couple.

 The changes were made on October 9, 2016, with Meghan’s relationship with Prince Harry becoming public later than month. 

In addition to the jobs being changed, a reference to her stint as a Deal or No Deal briefcase girl was also removed. 

The page initially read: “Meghan Markle (born August 4, 1981 in Los Angeles, California) is an American fashion model, spokesmodel, and actress. 

“She is best known for her role as Rachel Zane on the USA legal drama Suits.

 “She was the model who held case #24 on the US version of the television game show Deal or No Deal (season one) and also played Federal Bureau of Investigation special agent Amy Jessup in Fox's sci-fi thriller Fringe.”

An edit at 10.48pm on October 9 removed the information on her role on the games show completely – and a Humanitarian work section was added. 

Her profile then read: “Markle is actively involved in the socio-political arena and in 2016 she became Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada, travelling to Rwanda for the Clean Water Campaign. 

“She has also worked with The United Nations Women, where, as an Advocate, she presented at UN Headquarters for the HeforShe Gender Equality Campaign in September 2014. 

“Meghan has also been a panelist on the esteemed list of speakers for One Young World (Dublin, 2014), and has travelled to Afghanistan with the Joint Chief of Staff on a USO tour December 2014.”

Her occupation in the box on the right-hand side of the page was tweaked in the final edit at 10.51pm. 

It also listed her as the founder of lifestyle blog The TIG, which she ran alongside appearing in Suits. 

The changes are said to have been made by an unnamed user with an IP address linked to a Los Angeles PR firm. 

There is nothing to suggest Meghan was represented by them. 

 This follows the explosive biography Finding Freedom stating that Meghan and Harry were “tipped off” that their romance was about to go public. 

The book does not suggest Meghan was behind the news going public, and states: “The following day Meghan felt somewhat bittersweet. 

“On the one hand, she was disappointed that their secret was out.

“It was no longer just the two of them. While Meghan, before she met Harry, had occasionally set up a paparazzi photo here and there or let info slip out to the press, she did everything in her power to protect the privacy of her relationship with the prince.

“She knew keeping things quiet meant they could get to know each other without pressure or further worries that came from reporters covering their romance.”

The book added that there was “also a part of her that was relieved”.
