Meghan Markle claimed that she "didn't know anything about the family" before meeting Prince Harry, despite writing a blog post about her dream of becoming a princess.

In the explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey, the Duchess of Sussex said: "It wasn’t part of something that was part of the conversation at home. It wasn’t something that we followed."

She added: "It wasn’t part of something that was part of the conversation at home. It wasn’t something that we followed."

But when she was working as an actress, the Duchess wrote in her blog The Tig about all "the pomp" surrounding Kate and William's wedding and that she grew up dreaming of becoming a princess.

A section published by The Sun states: "Little girls dream of being princesses. I, for one, was all about She-Ra, Princess of Power.

"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.

"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."

In recent Sussex news, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have not yet publicly congratulated the Queen after she celebrated her Platinum Jubilee yesterday.

Her Majesty reached the historic landmark of 70 years on the throne on Sunday (6 February), with her son Prince Charles writing her a heartfelt letter praising her many decades of service.

It comes after the 95-year-old monarch used the occasion to announce that Camilla, Duchess of Cornwallwould be afforded the title of Queen Consort when Charles one day becomes King, ending the debate over whether she could ever be referred to as a 'Queen'.

In the message, posted on social media by Clarence House, Charles said: "On this historic day, my wife and I join you all in congratulating Her Majesty The Queen on the remarkable achievement of serving this nation, the realms and Commonwealth for seventy years."
