Meghan Markle had blogged about Kate's wedding in 2014, and yet claimed she didn't know about the British royals
It has now been discovered that the 39-year-old Duchess of Sussex wrote about her now sister-in-law’s wedding in her now-defunct blog 'The Tig' in 2014, two years before she began dating Prince Harry
Meghan Markle during her interview with Oprah Winfrey on March 7 had claimed that she did not have much idea about the Royal family before she married Prince Harry. But it has now been revealed that she had blogged about the fairytale 2011 wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William in 2014.
In the tell-all interview, the former actress told the chat show queen, “I didn't grow up knowing much about the Royal Family. It wasn't something that was part of conversation at home. It wasn't something that we followed.” Meghan Markle also claimed that she never took the help of Google to know a bit more about Harry before meeting him personally. “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,” she added.
However, it has now been discovered that the 39-year-old wrote about her sister-in-law’s wedding in her now-defunct blog The Tig. The blog read, “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. 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."

Meghan’s childhood friend Suzy Ardakani also confirmed her interest in the royal family and claimed that she and the Duchess of Sussex used to watch Lady Diana and Prince Charles’ taped wedding ceremony. Suzy Ardakani's mother, Sonia, had corroborated this, saying: “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.”
Another old friend of Meghan Markle, Ninaki Priddy, told The Daily Mail, “Meghan was always fascinated by the royal family. She wants to be Princess Diana 2.0.” While biographer Andrew Morton said, “Aged 16, she watched the funeral of Diana with her friends, tears coursing down their cheeks at the poignant moment when the cameras zoomed in on the royal coffin.”
Meanwhile, British socialite and member of the aristocracy, Lady Alice Manners, has also dismissed Meghan Markle’s claim that she did not know what she was getting into before marrying the Duke of Sussex. To prove her point, Alice shared a meme, which included a collage of pictures of the soon-to-be-mother and Diana. It showed similarities between the two’s dressing styles. Through the meme, the 25-year-old columnist suggested that Markle had dressed like her mother-in-law in the past and this was not a coincidence.
In addition, Alice also slammed Harry for saying he didn’t get the chance to ride on the baby seat of his father’s bicycle as a child by sharing an image of Queen Elizabeth II riding on horseback and captioned it saying, "How it's done". She added that the 94-year-old monarch and her late sister Princess Margaret also had to “made sacrifices” in their lives.
