This Video Of An 8-Year-Old Meghan Markle Playing Queen Is Proof That There Really Is Such Thing As Fate

It seems Meghan Markle has had more royal training than any of us ever could have imagined. 

When Prince Harry’s bride-to-be was 8 years old back in 1990, she attended a birthday party for her pal Ninaki Priddy in Priddy’s backyard. Priddy’s mother recorded the event, which featured the kids taking part in creating a production called “Your Royal Highness,” starring Markle in the role of the queen.

“‘Your Royal Highness,’ Take One.” Markle says, before imitating a clapperboard. In the video, the soon-to-be real-life princess is shown wearing a red and white striped shirt, a skirt, and bright white sneakers, as she sits on a picnic blanket with some of the other kids around her. 

“Good evening your highness,” one girl says as she bows to Markle. Another asks if there is anything to do around the kingdom, to which Markle responds, “Yes! Make 900,000 cookies and sew me a nice dress.”

One party attendant asks what all the commotion around the party is about. “It’s for this meeting I’m having,” 8-year-old Markle explains. “I’m having people from Florida and Canada, Mississippi, Missouri.” 

Markle then proceeds to give two girls from the party a time out for 10 minutes. Later in the video, Markle even fakes a British accent and wears a gold crown.

If this wasn’t some type of indication of what lied in the future for the stunning actress, we don’t know what is.
