The Peep Show actress who is a member of the royal family
Meghan Markle isn’t the only notable actress in the Royal Family – Claudia Winkleman’s sister has also made big appearances on stage and on screen, and you’ll probably recognize her.
Sophie Winkleman is married to Lord Frederick Windsor, son of Prince Michael of Kent. Prince Michael is a well-known active member of the royal family.
As the Queen’s cousin, the Prince has represented Her Majesty on several occasions, making engagements around the world.
Her son, Lord Frederick Windsor, married Sophie Winkleman in 2009 and the couple have two daughters together.
Sophie shares a father with famous TV presenter Claudia Winkleman, who regularly participates in Strictly Come Dancing.
Despite being the daughter-in-law of a fairly prominent royal, Sophie is extremely unlikely to ever become the Queen Consort. The latest addition from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex means Sophie’s husband is now 52nd on the British throne.
Despite her close ties to the famous British presenter, Sophie is notable in her own right for having starred in several hit TV shows and films, including The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Titanic.
You can also recognize her playing Big Suze on Peep Show, starring David Mitchell and Robert Webb.
The four-part Titanic television series tells the classic story of the catastrophic maiden voyage of ocean liners across the North Atlantic. The British actress played Dorothy Gibson.

In The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, Sophie took on the role of “the old Susan” – the adult version of the beloved older sister Pevensie.
Winkleman appears near the end of the film as the troublesome quartet struggle with the decision to return to the real world, leaving the fictional Narnia behind.
Winkleman played Ashton Kutcher’s girlfriend Zoey in the hit American series Two and a Half Men – a role that meant leaving many of her royal labels at the door.
In one scene, Zoey tells Kutcher’s character that she was going to “take him into the bedroom and hit him like a snare drum.”
Winkleman’s character was not very popular during the 18 episodes she appeared in, with many hoping the fictional romance would end badly for her.
She has also appeared in Red Dwarf and CSI Miami.
