Meghan Markle OMG. The Suits star, FLARE fave, humanitarian and lifestyle blogger—not to mention talented cook—is said to have bewitched Prince Harry, 32, who met the actress during a recent charity event in Toronto; Markle has since travelled across the pond at least twice. The British press is breathlessly searching for any and all info about the 35-year-old, whom has been repeatedly referred to as Canadian, even though she was born and raised in L.A.

Olivia Wilde When she was 18, Wilde married Tao Ruspoli—son of Italian prince Alessandro Ruspoli, whose aristocratic lineage can be traced back to the 13th century. Their wedding was devoid of pomp and circumstance; they eloped in Virginia and exchanged vows in an old school bus. The couple divorced in 2011, and Wilde now has two kids with fellow actor Jason Sudeikis.

A.J. Langer Best known for playing Rayanne in the gone-too-soon teen drama My So-Called Life, Langer traded character work for a countess title. As was widely reported in England, she met Charles Courtney—a pro rugby player and also the 19th Earl of Devon—at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. (That is so Rayanne.)

Diane von Furstenberg DVF married Germany’s Prince Egon of Furstenberg in 1969, and gained a hell of a title: Her Serene Highness Princess Diane of Furstenberg. The couple divorced in 1972; as a result she lost the title but kept the name.

Charlene Wittstock Prince Albert of Monaco—whose mother was Grace Kelly—married South African swimmer Wittstock after years of playboy antics. Their wedding was highly publicized but had more of a Charles/Diana vibe than either probably wanted; there were rumours that her passport had “disappeared” in the days leading up to the event, and they shared the. most. uncomfortable. PDA after the ceremony.
