When we’re right, we’re right!!
As you may’ve seen, following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s engagement announcement, the couple sat down for a televised interview about their love story. During the sit down, the Suits actress coyly claimed that she “didn’t know much” about the ginger royal prior to their courtship.
While we LOVES us some Miz Markle, we smelled total B.S. — and made sure to shout it out loud and proud. We mean, the 33-year-old prince is one of the world’s most famous bachelors, how can you not know anything about him???
And it appears our gut instinct was right as, on Tuesday, a close childhood friend revealed to Daily Mail that Meghan was “always fascinated by the royal family.” In fact, per the insider, Markle hopes “to be Princess Diana 2.0.”
Well, well! According to Ninaki Priddy, she and Meghan traveled to London together in the summer of ’96, where they made sure to pose for a photo in front of Buckingham Palace. On her childhood bestie’s engagement, Priddy added:
“I’m not shocked at all. It’s like she has been planning this all her life. She gets exactly what she wants and Harry has fallen for her play. She was always fascinated by the Royal Family. She wants to be Princess Diana 2.0. She will play her role ably, but my advice to him is to tread cautiously.”
Oh snap!! Clearly Meghan has downplayed her knowledge of the royal family, but we doubt she’s some calculating social climber.
Or, at least, we hope that’s the case. Regardless, we couldn’t be happier for Harry and Meghan, and wish them only the best at this time!!
