American actress Meghan Markle has been under the intense scrutiny of tabloids around the world thanks to her year-old relationship with none other than Prince Harry, 33. But in an interview with Vanity Fair, the 36-year-old doesn't sound like the spotlight has fazed her all that much. Two quotes from the interview gaining attention:

  • “I can tell you that at the end of the day I think it’s really simple. We’re two people who are really happy and in love. ... I’m still the same person that I am, and I’ve never defined myself by my relationship.”

  • “We’re a couple. We’re in love. I’m sure there will be a time when we will have to come forward and present ourselves and have stories to tell, but I hope what people will understand is that this is our time. This is for us."
The full piece touches on how on the British tabs have reported on Markle's divorce, the fact that she has a black mother and a white father, and her upbringing in Los Angeles. “It has its challenges, and it comes in waves," she says of the publicity. "But I still have this support system all around me, and, of course, my boyfriend’s support.” Click for the full interview. (More Meghan Markle stories.)
