Today, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex is retired from acting. But long before she married Prince Harry, Meghan was a TV star, best known from Suits.

The series, however, was actually her first full time role. Before Suits, she started her career with guest episodes on countless TV shows, and many are long forgotten.

Here's a quick look at Meghan Markle's history on TV shows you probably didn't know.

Meghan Markle's series: From sitcoms to crime and soaps

According to IMDB, Meghan's first claim to fame came as an uncredited child actor in an episode of Married... with Children from 1995.

But her first true role was in an episode of classic soap opera General Hospital. She played a character named "Jill" in a 2002 episode.

Now how about crime TV? The royal of today made guest appearances on both CSI: New York and CSI: Miami way back when.
