Meghan blogged about Kate's wedding before claiming she 'didn't know much about royals'

Meghan Markle blogged about Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding years before claiming she didn't know much about the royal family in her bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey adding that she hadn't researched her future husband.

The American former actress explained to the TV mogul that she "didn't grow up knowing much about the royal family" and did not Google Prince Harry before she met him.

The 39-year-old, who is expecting her second child, also claimed she did not even know how to curtsey when she first met the Queen at The Royal Lodge in Windsor.

The Duchess of Sussex said: "It wasn’t part of something that was part of the conversation at home. It wasn’t something that we followed."

But Meghan wrote about her dream of becoming a princess and Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding in her blog seven years ago.

The mum-of-one was working as an actor in 2014 when she wrote in her now-defunct blog The Tig about "the pomp" surrounding Kate and William's 2011 wedding and how she grew up dreaming of becoming a princess, Daily Star reports.

A section published by The Sun states: "Little girls dream of being princesses. I, for one, was all about She-Ra, Princess of Power.

"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.

"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."

Several of Meghan's childhood friends have claimed that she took a close interest in the royal family growing up, particularly Princess Diana.

Ninaki Priddy told The Sun that Meghan was "always fascinated" by the royal family and wanted to be "Princess Diana 2.0".

While royal biographer Andrew Morton said that when Meghan was 16, she watched the funeral of Princess Diana with "tears coursing down her cheeks".

Meghan, who is due to give birth to a baby girl in the summer, said life in the family had taken a devastating toll on her mental health, stating: "I just didn't want to be alive anymore."
