In 2016, it was discovered the most eligible bachelor in the world, Prince Harry, had likely found his one and only. Her name was Meghan Markle; she was an actress, a divorcee, and a biracial American. It quickly became obvious that their love story would be iconic.
Today, we know how the story goes: Harry proposed to Meghan at Nottingham Cottage during a casual dinner and they married less than six months later at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor. On May 19th, 2018, the became the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
After meeting her Prince Charming, leaving her wedding ceremony in a carriage, and being a member of the esteemed British Royal Family, Meghan Markle is truly living out every little girl’s dreams of being a princess- even her own dream.
In Meghan’s former lifestyle blog, The Tig, Meghan had revealed that she dreamed of becoming a princess one day. In 2014, she wrote “Little girls dream of being princesses. I, for one, was all about She-Ra, Princess of Power.” Her words were introductory to her interview that she did with an exiled Libyan royal and humanitarian, Princess Alia Al-Senussi.
In her blog post, Meghan even mentioned future in-laws, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate! Meghan confessed that the fantasy of being a princess was something that “grown women retain” and that it was clear after seeing “the pomp and circumstance surrounding the royal wedding and endless conversation about Princess Kate.”
It’s absolutely mind-boggling that Meghan was writing about becoming a princess and even referenced Kate and her royal wedding only two years before meeting her own Prince and becoming family with Kate Middleton! But even before her blog, Meghan visited Buckingham Palace and even took a tourist picture outside! Little did she know that one day she would actually standing on the iconic Buckingham balcony as a member of the Royal Family!
Many times, I believe that we can sense when we are destined for greatness; I believe Meghan Markle knew that she’d be successful and I can’t but wonder if she ever genuinely thought about her life as a Royal. After all, her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, knew that she would be a great influencer, but that’d she never be Queen. What do you think about this?
