Was Meghan Markle lying when she said ‘didn’t know much’ about Prince Harry?

Meghan talked about being set up on a blind date by a mutual friend:

“Yes, it was definitely a set up. (laughs) It was a blind date. And it’s so interesting because we talk about it and now and even then, I, you know, because I’m from the States, you don’t grow up with the same understanding of the royal family and so while I now understand very clearly, there’s a global interest there. I didn’t know much about him, and so the only thing that I had asked her when she said that she wanted to set us up, was, I had one question. I said, “Well is he nice?” Cause if he wasn’t kind, it just didn’t, it didn’t seem like it would make sense and so, we went and had a, met for a drink, and then I think very quickly into that we said, “Well what are we doing tomorrow? We should meet again.”

One of Meghan’s childhood friends claims that Meghan was always obsessed with royalty:

Meghan Markle “was always fascinated by the royal family’’ — and hopes “to be Princess Diana 2.0,’’ a close childhood friend said Tuesday. Markle coyly claimed while announcing her engagement with Prince Harry on Monday that she “didn’t know much’’ about her blue-blood fiancé or his royal family before she met him, but old pal Ninaki Priddy said the pair traveled to London as teens — and the American actress was obsessed by the royals, the Daily Mail said.

“I’m not shocked at all’’ by Markle’s engagement to Harry, Priddy told the Mail. “It’s like she has been planning this all her life. She gets exactly what she wants, and Harry has fallen for her play. She was always fascinated by the royal family. She wants to be Princess Diana 2.0. She will play her role ably. But my advice to him is to tread cautiously,’’ Priddy said.

On the then-15-year-old girls’ trip to London, they posed for one photo sitting on a metal railing and beaming in front of Buckingham Palace.
