While it’s hard to imagine Meghan Markle as anything other than the Duchess of Sussex, she was once most commonly known as an actress and curator of her own lifestyle blog The Tig.
During her time writing for the website, she conducted a “Tig Talk” with Libyan royal Princess Alia Al-Senussi. In her introduction to the interview — which the Daily Mail shared a screenshot of— Markle wrote about her own admiration of princesses and the frenzy that often surrounds them. She even specifically mentioned the “endless conversation” about her now sister-in-law Kate Middleton.
“Little girls dream of being princesses. I, for one, was all about She-Ra, Princess of Power,” she wrote on The Tig, according to the Daily Mail. “And grown women seem to retain this childhood fantasy. Just look at the pomp and circumstance surrounding the royal wedding and endless conversation about Princess Kate.”
The post was written back in 2014 while Markle was still portraying Rachel Zane on the show “Suits,” three years before she would officially join the royal family.
This isn’t the first time Markle has had a connection to the royals in her past, as an old photo of a 15-year-old Markle posing outside of Buckingham Palace recently went viral for basically predicting her future.
Now, 20 years later, Markle is experiencing the same “pomp and circumstance” and “endless conversation” following a royal wedding of her very own.
