A blog published by Meghan Markle in 2014 spoke of how she dreamed of being a princess superhero and slammed the “pomp and circumstance” of Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s wedding, according to a recent report.
She also made the claim that she was unfamiliar with what life in the royal family might be like.
During the 2-hour interview, which saw Prince Harry join Meghan Markle for the second half, the Duchess of Sussex told Oprah Winfrey that she had never considered what it would be like to marry into the royal family.
Meghan Markle confessed that she and her mother, Doria Ragland, did not talk nor follow the royal family.
She stated: “It wasn’t something that was part of the conversation at home. It wasn’t something that we followed. I went into it naively because I didn’t grow up knowing much about the royal family. I didn’t fully understand what the job was.”
However, now, doubts have been cast over her claims, following reports that she wrote a blog in 2014 which spoke of how “little girls dream of being princesses.”
Then-actress Meghan Markle wrote about how she wanted to be like She-Ra, Princess of Power — a 1980s fictional female superhero who was a “royal rebel.”
Markle made it clear she was “not talking about Cinderella,” but rather a princess who was known for her “strength.”
Talking to Oprah, Meghan Markle said she was “naïve” and did not grow up knowing much about the royal family or following them, but also spoke of her friendship with her husband’s cousin, Princess Eugenie.
Royal biographer Andrew Morton has claimed that Meghan cried watching the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales, in 1997.
Meghan’s friend, Ninaki Priddy, who was pictured outside Buckingham Palace during a visit to London in 1996, said the following: “Meghan was always fascinated by the Royal Family. She wants to be Princess Diana 2.0.”
Meghan’s childhood friend, Suzy Ardakani, said she was very fascinated by the royal family and watched Princess Diana’s 1981 wedding to Prince Charles numerous times.
Suzy’s mother told the Daily Mail: “I always loved Diana, and I have her biography, which I gave Meghan to read. I videoed Diana’s wedding back in 1981, and I would watch it with Suzy and Meghan all those years later. They would also see items about her on TV.”
In the 2014 blog, which has recently come to light, the activist also wrote about the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, four years before they became Meghan Markle’s in-laws when she married Prince Harry in 2018.
“Look at the pomp and circumstance,” she wrote of the Cambridges’ lavish wedding at Westminster Abbey back in 2011.
Markle also criticized the “endless conversation about Princess Kate” and the “grown women” who she said “seem to retain this childhood fantasy” about royalty.
