She is the new public’s favorite at the Royal Palace. Meghan Markle has all makings to become the new Grace Kelly, a Hollywood actress on the path to become a royal princess! She might not look it, but Meghan Markle is living proof that royal dreams can become reality. Meghan and her now fiancé Prince Harry announced their royal engagement to the world, which caused fans everywhere to experience just a tinge of jealousy that it was happening to her and not them. Now, a photo has been published of teenage Meghan, showing that once upon a time, she was just like the rest of us - taking a tour of the Buckingham Palace like a regular tourist.

The front page of the Daily Mail was graced with a photo of 15-year-old Meghan, sitting with her friend Ninaki Priddy outside the palace, waiting for a tour. Ninaki has presented herself as a “childhood best friend of Meghan”, saying how she is not shocked at all by the engagement. “It's like she has been planning this all her life,” she said. “She gets exactly what she wants and Harry has fallen for her play. She was always fascinated by the Royal Family. She wants to be Princess Diana 2.0. She will play her role ably, but my advice to him is to tread cautiously.”

Meghan, however, remembers things differently. In her joint interview with prince Harry for BBC, she said: "We talk about it now. Because I'm from the states you don't grow up with the same understanding of the Royal family, I now know there's a global interest in them...I didn't know much about him [before]." If she did, in fact, plan her royal engagement wince childhood, then all the kudos to her for making it happen! Prior to the wedding, Meghan will become a British citizen and be both baptized and confirmed in the Church of England, meaning she would have to be rather dedicated to the long-game of her plan.

Royal fans are sharing two powerful photos of Meghan Markle - taken 22 years apart that prove "dreams do come true". In the first, 15-year-old Meghan sits on black painted railings outside Buckingham Palace. The grainy photograph shows Meghan in slip-on sandals and sunnies, smiling alongside a pal with her whole life ahead of her. In the second, she is a 36-year-old bride - marrying a prince in front of the whole world. Life is full of surprises. One day you're 15 and posing outside Buckingham Palace and 22 years later you're marrying the prince. What a love story - a true princess in waiting.

Harry and Meghan were first introduced in London in July 2016 through mutual friends, but they did not start dating straight away. Meghan was still based in her adopted hometown of Toronto, where her US drama Suits is filmed. Prince Harry and Meghan got married in a dazzling ceremony that blended ancient English ritual with African-American culture yesterday. The celebration, watched up close by royals and celebrities and from afar by a global TV audience of millions, has made history. And a love story is made all the better when it has a happy ending.
