An unearthed blog post from Meghan Markle’s old blog, The Tig, hints that the Duchess of Sussex was aware of the royal family before meeting Prince Harry despite telling Oprah Winfrey that she did not know much about them.
As per Express UK, an old post from the now-Duchess of Sussex’s now-defunct blog revealed that she was very much aware of the ‘pomp’ that came with royal life, despite telling Oprah Winfrey in her 2021 explosive tell-all that she did not do much research about the family.
In the blog post, shared in 2014 more than two years before Meghan met Harry at a blind date, the former Suits actress wrote: “Little girls dream of being princesses. I, for one, was all about She-Ra, Princess of Power.”
She added: “And grown women seem to retain this childhood fantasy. Just look at the pomp and circumstance surrounding the royal wedding and endless conversation about Princess Kate.”
The unearthed blog’s revelation comes as Meghan, on more than one occasion, denied knowing much about the royal family before meeting Prince Harry.
In her engagement interview in 2017, Meghan said that she ‘did not realise how famous Harry was in the UK’, and later in her Oprah interview, said that she ‘did not do much research into the royals’ before marrying Harry.
“Thank God I didn’t know a lot about the family. Thank God I hadn’t researched. I would’ve been so in my head about it,” she had claimed.
