Photo of Meghan holding a magazine cover featuring Kate Middleton resurfaces
In her bombshell interview with Oprah in March, the Duchess of Sussex, 39, said she “didn’t grow up knowing much about the royal family”.
“She said she didn’t do any research on Harry or his family before she got married!” one person tweeted. “Was that because she was more interested in what Kate had?”
Another wrote, “She has stalked the royals for years!”
However, others pointed out that the picture didn’t necessarily mean Meghan was royally obsessed.
“And the problem/controversy is?” one user tweeted, adding, “Kate happened to be on that cover.”
This not the first time, though, that Meghan’s alleged naivety has been seemingly debunked.
In March, a report surfaced claiming that the Hollywood actress had blogged about dreaming of becoming a princess seven years ago.
“Grown women seem to retain this childhood fantasy,” she wrote in a 2014 post. “Just look at the pomp and circumstance surrounding the royal wedding and endless conversation about Princess Kate.”
The irony of the resurfaced photo is compounded by Meghan’s rumoured tiff with Middleton.
The Duchess of Sussex told Oprah that her sister-in-law left her in tears before her nuptials, addressing widespread reports that she “made Kate cry” over her flower girl dresses, insisting instead: “The reverse happened.”
The Duchess of Cambridge’s uncle has spoken out, saying he “doesn’t believe” Kate ever made Meghan cry.
Kate was reportedly “mortified” over the allegations.
Following the resurfaced photo, one user tweeted: “The lies are all coming to light.”
