Bad news for women who dream of becoming British citizens (oh, or members of the royal family) — things are super serious between Prince Harry and his new girlfriend. But, before she was a successful actress on the verge of becoming royalty, Meghan Markle was a Deal or No Deal girl — proving that a lot can change in 10 years.

In 2006, Markle was at the beginning of her acting career and she took the job in order to make ends meet as she auditioned for film and TV roles.

Markle’s perseverance in one of the toughest businesses around paid off — today, she stars in USA’s critically-acclaimed TV series Suits. But, despite the promo images, Markle’s Deal or No Deal gig was less than glamorous.

Luckily, Markle’s willingness to pay her dues in order to pursue her dream job paid off and she’ll never have to don those dreaded high heels again. The seventh season of Suits premieres next year, and she’s dating one of the world’s most eligible bachelors. Not too shabby.
