If you thought the photo of a 15-year-old Meghan Markle being a tourist outside the Buckingham Palace in the summer of 1996 was both hilarious and ironic, you’re not going to want to miss this latest unearthing.
Royal fans recently dug out a photo of the former Suits actress holding an issue of U Magazine, in which she had written a feature about sunglasses, and the tabloid’s cover at the time featured none other than a giant picture of Kate Middleton, her now-sister-in-law.
The picture was taken in 2014, and Harry and Meghan met just two years later in 2016.
Meghan Markle also once gave Kate Middleton a brief shoutout in her former lifestyle blog, The Tig. In 2014, the now-Duchess penned an entry about princesses, where she revealed her former She-Ra obsession, interviewed Princess Alia Al-Senussi of Libya, and discussed how the classic dream of becoming royalty continues into adulthood.
"Grown women seem to retain this childhood fantasy," Markle wrote, according to People. "Just look at the pomp and circumstance surrounding the royal wedding and endless conversation about Princess Kate."
Little did she know, her own widely-celebrated princess moment came four years after she published that post.
