Meghan Markle and Prince Harry hug little girl who looks like she could be their daughter
Meghan Markle is already out here on Princess duties, and she’s warming up to the spotlight effortlessly.
She and Prince Harry were out on the town in Birminham, England for International Women’s Day this Thursday. As part of the royal schedule, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were to meet and greet with young well-wishers who lined up to watch the couple.
One young girl in particular caught the attention and the hearts of the royal newlyweds-to-be. Sophie Richards, a 10-year-old student initially spoke with Prince Harry. After she told him that she wanted to be an actress when she grows up, Prince Harry reached out to Meghan Markle to speak with the young girl.
Megan Markle, actress and former star of Suits, reportedly offered some words of encouragement.
“Meghan told me that I can achieve whatever I want to achieve,” Sophia said to People. “And Meghan said she would like to see me on TV when I become an actress.”
Megan Markle was also captured giving the aspiring star a big hug. Whatever Markle said, it definitely had a lasting impression on the student. Richards said that she will remember their conversation for the rest of her entire life.
“It was a dream come true,” she said. “I will never forget this day.”
Seeing the photos of the young girl we couldn’t help but think she even resembled Meghan Markle.

The royal wedding
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s big day is slated for May 19.
Palace officials released details about the wedding, which will take place at St. George’s Chapel. The service will start at 12 p.m. U.K. time, or 7 a.m. EST/4 a.m. PST, with a romantic carriage ride through the streets set to take place an hour after that.
“They hope this short journey will provide an opportunity for more people to come together around Windsor and to enjoy the atmosphere of this special day,” the Kensington Palace statement said of the planned carriage ride.
The two will be married by the Archbishop of Canterbury The Most Revd. and Rt Hon. Justin Welby, though Rt Revd. David Conner, the Dean of Windsor will lead the service, according to People.
After the carriage procession, a reception will be held at St. George’s Hall, a state room in the castle. A more private evening reception will be held later by Harry’s father, Prince Charles.
