Meghan Markle Was a Homecoming Queen Obsessed with Princess Diana in High School
Thanks to this throwback snap, we already know that Meghan Markle looks fabulous in a tiara.
A photo of the former Suits actress has surfaced from her high school's homecoming, where she was crowned homecoming queen, obviously.
In the photo, she wears an ice blue strapless gown, while holding a large bouquet of congratulatory flowers. Markle also wears the coveted homecoming tiara and a matching necklace.
In a new biography titled Meghan: A Hollywood Princess, author Andrew Morton (who also wrote a biography on Princess Diana) explored some of the details of Markle's high school experience, including being a theater kid, making homecoming court in 1998, and idolizing her fiancé's mom, Princess Diana.
When she was 16, she "watched the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales, tears coursing down cheeks at the poignant moment when the cameras zoomed in on the royal coffin. he wrote in an excerpt in The Times. Markle's appreciation for Diana came "not just for her style but also for her independent humanitarian mission."
Soon Markle will be swapping her plastic homecoming tiara for some more stately jewels as she joins the very family she once admired. We're certain that the royal family has plenty of gorgeous gems to be worn, and we can't wait to see Markle don them IRL.
Until then, we have plenty to be excited about. Namely, how the American is breaking all of the royal family's rules.
During Markle's second official royal outing, she stepped outside the style box, opting to style her hair in a low, messy bun, instead of the sleek blow-out that's become Kate Middleton's signature.
We can't wait to see what she wears next.
