Before Meghan Markle began dating Prince Harry, the Suits star had a lifestyle blog called The Tig, It has since been shut down, but back in 2014, Markle interviewed Princess Alia Al-Senussi of Libya, and in the article gave readers a few of her thoughts on royalty.
In the piece, Markle writes:

We cant say we are surprised, Markle has been a strong and out spoken feminist leader, long before she married her prince. In addition to her own visions of what it meant to be princess, Markle discussed her future sister-in-law saying:
And grown women seem to retain this childhood fantasy. Just look at the pomp and circumstance surrounding the royal wedding and endless conversation about Princess Kate.
