It's official: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged. After rumors swirling around for weeks, it turns out the royal relationship is just as serious as everyone thought. Now, it's time we educate ourselves on the upcoming royal bride — and what better place to start than Instagram.

One look at Meghan Markle's Instagram proves that she is actually a lot like you — with more expensive clothing and more expensive trips, of course.

Odds are that you know quite a bit about good 'ole Prince Harry by now. The younger son of Charles, Prince of Wales, and Diana, Princess of Wales, has had his fair share of girlfriends in his day. According to PopSugar, he's dated plenty of models and actresses since 2003, but the endgame is with Markle.

As far as Markle goes, you probably know her from the television show Suits, where she played the character Rachel Zane since 2011, though she recently left the series. Other than that, the actress has lived a very luxe life, according to her Instagram.

Between visits to Las Vegas, London, and New York — sometimes all in the same week — she also lives a very fashionable life. Although her Instagram feed looks pretty normal, her taste in jewelry, fashion, and travel is anything but average.

It's worth noting that the soon-to-be princess hasn't posted on her Instagram since April 7, 2017. There's a good chance that it's to keep her life private. Her posts before that show just how well she'll transition into a royal life.

Here are a few other signs that Markle was destined to be a princess all along via the iconic source of all info, Instagram.

1. She's Familiar With Luxe Suites

Markle knows how to travel — and her Instagram is proof. The actress has been staying in high-end suites and exploring the world in style, even before she started dating Prince Harry.

2. She's Careful With Love

Before April 7, Markle documented a lot of her life events, like travel, work, and relaxation. One thing she never posted about is her love life. She's has always kept that part of her life off of social media, which shows that she's completely ready to do so with her current relationship — a royal staple.

3. The Woman's Got Brains

It's no secret that Markle is absolutely stunning, but she's got the brains to go along with it. Along with her successful acting career, she also loves to post about the books she reads and even talks politics from time to time. She also had her own online blog for three years, proving she's savvy when it comes to politics.

4. She Values Family

Tradition and family — two things that are very important to the Royal Family — are values Markle knows all about. Except this year, someone will probably do the tree trimming for her.

5. She Gives Back

Markle is no stranger to charity work, which is a major deal for the royal family. According to Vanity Fair, Markle and Prince Harry actually met at a charity event in 2016.

6. She Has Impeccable Style

On top of the hundreds of gorgeous outfits she's shown on her Instagram, Markle also designed her very own collection with Reitmans. She also happens to have a great jewelry collection — even before her engagement ring. She joins the ranks of other notoriously fashionable women, and she will fit in perfectly.

7. She Knows How To Enjoy Life

Ad failed to load

There's no doubt in my mind that Markle's adventurous spirit drove Prince Harry to be attracted to her. As proof by her Insta, she is constantly on the go around the globe — and Harry can relate.

While there is more to a person than what is on their Instagram, Markle seems like a down-to-earth future royal. She can be out bestie any time.
