Meghan Markle may have a premonition about her future as a royal.
Daily Mail shared a never-before-seen footage of Markle playing as a queen on her friend’s birthday. The clip was taken on Jan. 29, 1990, during Ninaki Priddy’s ninth birthday. They were best friends.
“The show was called Your Royal Highness and the star was Meg. It’s very funny to see this now and given what is going on with her life it’s quite eye-opening. She was always the centre of attention, always the ringleader – it was my birthday, but she took the starring role!” Priddy recalled.
Priddy’s mom, Maria, entered the garden with the camera. “You guys, look, we’re on video tape! Come here, you guys!” Markle says. The future royal then told her friends to have a role-playing game.
One scene featured one girl bowing to Markle. Another child asks “Your Highness, your Highness, isn’t there anything to do around this kingdom any more?”
“Yes, make 900,000 cookies… and sew me a nice dress,” Prince Harry’s fiancée answers.
In the clip, Markle can be seen wearing a crown. Later on, the girls sing Happy Birthday to Priddy with the bride-to-be directly behind the celebrant. Unfortunately, Markle and Priddy’s friendship was not the same as before.
Priddy didn’t like Markle’s decision to break up with her first husband, Trevor Engelson. Markle’s former best friend sided on the actress’ ex-partner.
“What came to light after Trevor and I spoke ended my friendship with Meghan. I think everybody who knew them both was in shock,” Priddy said. “All I can say now is that I think Meghan was calculated, very calculated, in the way she handled people and relationships. She is very strategic in the way she cultivates circles of friends.”
Priddy was among the guests during Markle and Engelson’s nuptials on Sept. 10, 2011, in Jamaica. However, it is unlikely for Priddy to get an invite to Markle’s royal wedding with Prince Harry as the former best friends never talked again after they fell out.
Prince Harry and Markle’s will exchange “I Do’s” on May 19 at St. George Chapel at Windsor Castle. The ceremony will begin 12 p.m. UK time (7 a.m. EST). After an hour, the newlyweds will depart for the carriage procession.
