Back before the Duchess of Sussex got engaged to Prince Harry, she was just your typical single gal, blogging, Instagramming and eating food from a box.
When EyeSwoon interviewed Meghan Markle in 2017, they asked her if she had something she “embarrassingly and secretly still loves to eat.” Markle replied that she loves French fries, but that’s not exactly a revelation.
“But you know what I do really happen to lovvvvve,” she continued, “is that boxed macaroni and cheese. I now buy the Annie’s organic one if I’m craving it, but I throw some frozen peas into it and have this gooey simple childlike meal. I used to cook it for the kids I would babysit and I always enjoyed feeling like a kid and eating it with them. I’m also not averse to eating tater tots. With ketchup and sriracha.”
There’s something about that visual that is hard to swallow, no? What would the Queen say!!??
When Marie Claire interviewed Markle back in 2013, she talked about her foodie status and said that the creators of “Suits” made her character, Rachel Zane, a foodie because they knew she was a foodie IRL.
“I’m always on the quest to find amazing new restaurants and new recipes,” she told the mag. “I’m a California girl, right? I grew up with that farm-to-table dining before it was sweeping the nation. I do think there’s some value to really throwing yourself into food and embracing where it comes from.”
Just when we start to picture Meghan sitting in fancy dining quarters, feeding her newborn with a sterling silver Tiffany’s spoon in between sips of expensive Champagne, we get gifted this mac and cheese truth bomb.
