Here's a Video of Meghan Markle Pretending to Be a Queen in 1990

On May 19, Meghan Markle will marry Prince Harry and become a member of the British royal family. Meghan and Harry's wedding has seemed inevitable since they went public with their relationship (Harry's unprecedented decision to issue a statement via Kensington Palace defending Meghan made it clear that the couple was very serious). But, it looks like Meghan's future as a royal might have been fated since as far back as 1990.

In a video uncovered by the Daily Mail, Meghan can be seen acting out her future as royalty. The video in question was shot at her friend Ninaki Priddy's ninth birthday party. In it, Meghan (who was eight at the time), played a queen in a backyard play called Your Royal Highness.

"The show was called Your Royal Highness and the star was Meg," Ninaki said. "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!"

The video seems to foreshadow two very important things about Meghan's life—her career as an actress and her new role as a royal.

Meghan took the lead, directing the miniature movie (which seems to have been improvised). Naturally, she played the queen and cast her friends as subjects. How's that for a natural born leader?

It's important to note, of course, that Meghan will not be a queen in real life. When Meghan marries Harry, Queen Elizabeth will likely make the couple a duke and a duchess, as she did with Prince William and Kate Middleton. With the birth of William and Kate's third child, Harry will be sixth in line for the throne, making it highly unlikely that Meghan will ever officially be a queen—but we always have this video.
