In 2014, several years before she would meet Prince Harry, Meghan Markle wrote in her blog The Tig about wanting to be a powerful figure.
The site was deactivated in 2017, when her and Harry’s relationship became serious, but an archived version has come to light, in which Markle talks about her dreams of becoming a princess. But not the Disney kind. Prefacing an interview she conducted with Princess Alia Al-Senussi of Libyan royalty, a woman she refers to as “cool” and “smart”, Markle wrote:
Little girls dream of being princesses. I, for one, was all about She-Ra, Princess of Power. 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.
Back when she was a teenager, Kate Middleton starred in a play where she had her future predicted by a fortune teller. In the eerie scene, which was uploaded to YouTube, he takes her hand and tells her, “Soon you will meet a handsome man, a rich gentleman…”

She replies: “It is all I ever hoped for. Will he fall in love with me?”
“Indeed he will,” the fortune teller says.
“And marry me?” says Kate.
“And marry you,” the fortune teller confirms.
These Duchesses really know how to manifest.
