Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve seen more photos of Meghan Markle then you ever imagined. After becoming the bride to the world’s most eligible bachelor, Meghan Markle became one of the most popular people in the world.
Now, whether you’re buying groceries or flipping through television channels, you’re likely to see an image of Meghan. And as someone who is constantly on the search for new and original photos of the amazing Duchess of Sussex, it can be hard to find new content.
That’s why when former American Idol contestant, Katharine McPhee, posted this picture of herself and the Duchess on Instagram, fans and critics alike went into overdrive.
Katharine and Meghan grew up together in Los Angeles. Katharine shared the picture with a caption that read, “Meghan and I did musicals together as kids. She grew up to be the Duchess of Sussex and I grew up to star on the West End, so same life if you ask me.”
Immediately upon posting, the image went viral. Much of Meghan’s life prior to dating Harry has been kept private, so seeing her in her element as a performer is really fun.
Prior to seeing the throwback photo, it wasn’t a known fact that the Duchess and former American Idol star turned Broadway legend were friends. After seeing this photo, we can hope to see some footage of their shared performance together!
Today, both Meghan and Katharine are living in London. Katharine is only there temporarily while she stars in a production of Waitress and Meghan, of course, resides there permanently.
We hope the two performances get a chance to see other again sometime soon! Perhaps Harry and Meghan will attend the opening night of Katharine’s performance at the Adelphi Theatre on February 8th!
