Actress Meghan Markle—the 36-year-old who's been dating Prince Harry for more than a year—has had a successful career. Her most high-profile role to date is playing Rachel Zane on the television show Suits, but she's also appeared on other popular shows, like CSI: Miami and 90210.

And while she used to do freelance calligraphy to earn money in between auditions, Markle is now reportedly pulling in six figures for her acting jobs alone. According to knownetworth.com, she makes more than $50,000 per episode on Suits, and her annual salary is "around $450,000, which also includes around $80,000 worth of annual sponsorship/endorsements income." The site also reports that she was paid $187,000 for appearing in the film Remember Me and $171,429 for The Candidate, which were both released in 2010.

WITH ALL THAT INCOME, COULD MARKLE BE RICHER THAN HER ROYAL BOYFRIEND?

Not quite, according to celebritynetworth.com. The wealth-tracking site estimates that she is worth $5 million compared to the prince's $40 million, a sum he's accumulated from funds left in trust to him by his mother, Princess Diana, an inheritance from the Queen Mother, and his former salary as a captain in the British Army.
