Prince Harry’s fiancée Meghan Markle isn’t a commoner — but she’s not yet royalty either.

Sure, the 36-year-old actress and Los Angeles native was earning close to half a million dollars a year starring in the USA Network drama “Suits,” but she didn’t live in the lap of luxury.

Up until her recent engagement to Prince Harry, Markle rented a three-bedroom bungalow in Toronto, Canada, and leased an Audi SUV. And before she landed the role on “Suits,” she was juggling a few side hustles to make ends meet.

Below, take a peek inside the surprisingly relatable life of Meghan Markle:

With an estimated net worth of $5 million, she’s rich — but she doesn’t act like it.

Markle has starred on the television drama “Suits” since 2011 and earns about $50,000 per episode, according to knownetworth.com and Town & Country Magazine.

But the actress also makes around $80,000 a year from sponsorships and endorsement deals, bringing her annual salary to about $450,000. Celebritynetworth.com estimates Markle is worth $5 million.

Markle rented out a bungalow in Toronto — where a 3-bedroom goes for $1,770 a month on average — for part of the year while filming ‘Suits.’

“Suits” shoots eight months out of the year in Toronto. During production, Markle rented out a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home with a private backyard garden in the Seaton Village of Toronto.

Back in 2013, the self-proclaimed “California girl” told Esquire, “I am an adopted Canuck now.”

According to Numbeo, the cost of a three-bedroom rental in Toronto, outside the city center, is $1,770 a month, but it’s unknown exactly how much Markle was paying.

The couple who owned the home bought it for $508,000 a decade ago, and recently sold it for nearly $1.4 million after Markle moved out.

While she was auditioning for acting roles before landing ‘Suits,’ Markle maintained a ‘super-lucrative’ side job writing calligraphy invitations, she told Esquire.

“I’ve always had a propensity for getting the cursive down pretty well,” Markle told Esquire. “What it evolved into was my pseudo-waitressing job when I was auditioning. I didn’t wait tables. I did calligraphy for the invitations for, like, Robin Thicke and Paula Patton’s wedding.”

Pre “Suits,” Markle also worked as a briefcase holder on “Deal or No Deal,” which she calls a “learning experience … [that] helped me to understand what I would rather be doing.”
