Meghan Markle “gave a shop assistant her autograph in 2009” before being cast in Suits “in case she ever became famous”, claims a post on Instagram.
According to an Instagram account Overheard Celebs, which shares details of celebrity meetings, a user named Julie met the future Duchess of Sussex while at work in Vancouver, before Markle hit the big time as Rachel Zane in Suits.
Apparently, Meghan bought a handbag and told Julie she was an actress before Julie asked for an autograph “in case she ever got famous”.
The caption of the post read, “I met a sweet woman in 2009 while working retail when she purchased a purse from me.”
“We got to chatting, and she mentioned she was an actress currently filming in Vancouver.”
“I didn’t think much of it, but I asked if I could have her autograph so I could say I had it before she was famous. She chuckled and said, ‘yes, of course.’”
“I wished her luck and never saw her again. Two years later, I flipped on my TV to see her starring in Suits.”
“I was really happy her dreams came true. And just when I thought being on a successful TV show was cool, she then ended up marrying into one of the most famous families in the world, becoming the Duchess of Sussex.
