In a recently unearthed post from the Duchess of Sussex’s former blog, The Tig, Markle, 37, wrote in 2014, “Little girls dream of being princesses. I, for one, was all about She-Ra, Princess of Power.” The post in question was one where she spoke with Princess Alia Al Senussi, a conversation that Markle recalled as giving her “a ‘pinch-myself-I’m-emailing-with-a-princess’ moment.”

“And grown women seem to retain this childhood fantasy,” the former actress continued, before adding, “Just look at the pomp and circumstance surrounding the royal wedding and endless conversation about Princess Kate.”

Nearly four years later, Princess Kate would be her sister-in-law. Markle and Prince Harry announced their engagement in November 2017 and tied the knot at St George’s Chapel on May 19, 2018.
