Meghan has never been afraid to speak her mind on public events and was always one to share her views in her interviews before she met Prince Harry. Now it has been revealed that Meghan even made a comment about the Duchess of Cambridge herself years before she and Harry got together.
Like everyone else in the world, Meghan couldn’t escape royal wedding fever back when Kate Middleton married Prince William in 2011.
Three years later, she chatted about the celebration during an interview with Princess Alia Al-Senussi, a descendant of Libyan royalty.
She wrote: “Little girls dream of being princesses.
“I, for one, was all about She-Ra, Princess of Power.
“For those of you unfamiliar with the ’80s cartoon reference, She-Ra is the twin sister of He-Man, and a sword-wielding royal rebel known for her strength.
“We’re definitely not talking about Cinderella here.”
Meghan went on to discuss how this fascination with princesses doesn’t end when children grow up.
She said: “Grown women seem to retain this childhood fantasy.
JUST IN: Meghan Markle’s one birthday wish revealed
“Just look at the pomp and circumstance surrounding the royal wedding and endless conversation about Princess Kate.”
Who would have thought that just a few years later Meghan herself would be planning her own royal wedding.
However, despite her excitement about Kate’s wedding, there have been countless rumours of a fallout between Meghan and Kate.
These rumours have been further fuelled by the publication of a new book about the Sussexes.
However, Kate’s daughter Charlotte helped to ease the tension between the women due to Meghan’s “adoration” of the little Princess.
Meghan also gave Kate a surprising gift to “break the ice” when they first met.
Meghan gave the Duchess of Cambridge a Smythson notebook the first time the pair met to help break the ice, according to the new book.
Authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand say The Duchess of Cambridge greatly appreciated the gift as things got off to a solid start for the former fab four.
The authors said Kate loved the book from her future sister-in-law which she was gifted in January 2017.
Meghan also seemed to win over the young Princess Charlotte.
They book said: “Meghan bought a present for the duchess, who had celebrated her birthday just a day earlier.
“The soft leather Smythson notebook helped to break the ice, as did Meghan’s cooing over then 20-month-old Charlotte.”
