The Duchess of Sussex wrote a post on her now-defunct blog The Tig that discussed "the endless conversation about Princess Kate" following her royal wedding to Prince William in 2011.

"Little girls dream of being princesses. I, for one, was all about She-Ra, Princess of Power," Meghan wrote following her interview with Princess Alia Al-Senussi, a member of Libyan royalty.

"For those of you unfamiliar with the ‘80s cartoon reference, She-Ra is the twin sister of He-Man, and a sword-wielding royal rebel known for her strength. We’re definitely not talking about Cinderella here.

Meghan, 39, recently confessed to chat show host Oprah she went into the royal family "naively" and didn't do any online research when dating Harry back in 2016. The pair went on to marry at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle on 19 May 2018.

In the sit-down interview, which aired on CBS on Sunday 7 March, the Duchess explained: "I didn’t grow up knowing much about the royal family. It wasn’t something that was part of conversation at home. It wasn’t something that we followed."

She continued: "I didn’t fully understand what the job was."

So much so, in fact, that Meghan admitted that she had to swiftly perfect the art of curtsying before she met the monarch for the first time at the Royal Lodge in Windsor.

"Right in front of the house we practiced and ran in," she recalled. "Fergie ran out and said, 'Do you know how to curtsy?' Apparently, I did a very deep curtsy, I don't remember it, and then we sat there, and we chatted."
