When news broke back in 2017 that Suits star Meghan Markle would be marrying into the British Royal family, the world nearly exploded. Everyone who followed the family was losing their mind over not only an outsider being wed into the family, but an actress?! Unheard of! Except, it’s not unheard of, it’s happened more often than you think.

In fact, Meghan wasn’t the first actress to get married into the British Royal family (that title belongs to Sophie Winkleman!) But Meghan’s entrance did start a conversation, and since then, people have loved hearing about the crossover royal and Hollywood love stories.

Like any love story, some end in tragedy, while others get their happily ever after with a crown on top.

Now, we know the love stories between Meghan and Prince Harry, along with Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier of Monaco III. But did you know about old Hollywood legend Rita Hayworth’s love story with playboy Prince Aly Khan or Zsa Zsa Gabor’s final marriage? Buckle up, because these stories have it all — including some adorable meet-cutes.

From Italian princesses to former exiled Prince’s love stories with French actresses, these stories are a must for royal fans. Below, check out which actresses have married into royal families over the years.
