Meghan Markle has never been quiet when it comes to issues within Hollywood.
The 35-year-old actress (and girlfriend of Prince Harry) previously penned a letter detailing the racism she’s faced throughout her career and the “countless black jokes people have shared in front of me, not realising I am mixed.”

“To this day, my pet peeve is when my skin tone is changed and my freckles are airbrushed out of a photo shoot,” she told Allure.
The star, who was born to an African-American mother and Caucasian father, also shed light on the first time she realised she was different.
