Meghan Markle has come a long way. She's basically a real-life Cinderella story- a woman from a humble background who becomes a princess (well, a Duchess in this case).

Meghan's story has piqued people's interest in her history. They want to know if she ever had plans of becoming such a hotshot royal someday.

Royal biographer Andrew Morton suggested, in his book Meghan: A Hollywood Princess, that the Duchess of Sussex actually hoped to become a royal after watching Diana's funeral when she was 16 years old.

Morton claimed that Meghan was so moved by the ceremony that "tears coursed down her cheeks." Soon after, she began looking into the life of Diana and started nursing the hope to one day be like her.

The briefcase girl with big dreams

Many royal fans know that Meghan once had a stint as one of the briefcase girls on the TV show Deal or No Deal.

TV host Howie Mandel recently told Us Weekly that the Duchess of Sussex wouldn't be returning to acting but since she's a Duchess, she'll certainly be seen on TV.

Howie then added:

But that was her plan. I used to say to her, ‘Meghan, open the case.’ And she used to say, ‘Not now, I’m doing some work on becoming a duchess.’ It was the master plan, so I don’t think she’ll come back for us.

It seemed Howie was trying to be humorous with his comment but it's cool to imagine the possibility of Meghan daydreaming about Duchess-hood in 2006.

Moving on?

It's possible Meghan has already had enough of royalty, though. According to royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex may be planning to move to the United States in a bid to get away from critics.

There is vast global interest in them. This leads inevitably to the reports that they might spend an extended time abroad, possibly in their roles with the Queen's Commonwealth Trust or even in the USA.

All these are speculations at this point. Only time will tell if the couple will make such a move.
