Early Rare Photos Of Meghan Markle, Now The Duchess Of Sussex

An Early Glimpse Into The Future


When Meghan was just 15 years old, she went to Europe with a friend. The two teenagers made an obligatory stop in front of a building that would later play an enormous role in Meghan’s life – Buckingham Palace. This photo shows the friends sitting on a railing just in front of the royal palace during the summer of 1996.

The friend, Ninaki Priddy, told the Daily Mail that she’s “not shocked at all. It’s like she has been planning this all her life.” Meghan’s first official trip to the palace was in December 2017, for a pre-Christmas dinner.
