It’s amazing to see just how much can change in a matter of ten years. New technology emerges, people grow up, and lives change. If you live in the spotlight, your life is heavily documented. This can come as a blessing and a curse in many ways. There will always be documentation of the good, bad, and everything in-between.
Meghan Markle’s skyrocket to fame seems to have happened overnight, but the start to her stardom is quite spectacular. Before she was known as Rachel Zane on the hit series, Suits, and before she became the bride-to-be of Prince Harry, she had more humble beginnings.
She made various appearances through television advertisements and, as luck would have it, one of her shining moments has resurfaced for all the world to see. In 2009, she starred in a Tostitos commercial advertising their three-ingredient chips.
The then 26-year-old Markle has a narrated conversation in her head as she attempts to decide on a bag of chips for her party. While the dialogue is noticeably the voice of another, Markle’s undeniable expressions shine through as brightly as ever. She peruses the aisle and carefully inspects the ingredient list of the choices before she finally decides on the Tostitos.
Who would have ever thought that the unknown Tostitos buyer would become the wife of a royal a whole decade later? It’s reasons like this that we love digital documentation of those in the limelight.
