Wait, what?

Meghan Markle is one of the most talked about women in the world, becoming Duchess of Sussex just under a year ago, and now expecting a royal baby any day.

Meghan has had a seamless transition into becoming a royal, from her regal fashion looks (Meghan Markle effect) to her feminist speeches and handwritten notes.

But it turns out however that it’s a role she has been preparing for her whole life.

Yes, a recently unearthed post from Meghan’s now defunct blog, The Tig, showed that Meghan blogged about Kate Middleton and being a princess before even meeting Prince Harry.

‘Little girls dream of being princesses. I, for one, was all about She-Ra, Princess of Power,’ Meghan wrote in the 2014 post. '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.'

She continued: ‘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.’

It looks like Meghan was destined to be a royal and she and Kate were destined to be friends.

Well there we have it.
