Meghan Markle’s High School Yearbook Photo Proves She Has Always Been A Fighter

Check out what she said in her caption, plus other images from before she joined the Royal Family.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah has the whole world talking. They both went into depth about the racism and sexism she experienced, however, one thing everyone saw was a fighter in them both. That said, it appears Markle has always had a fighting spirit and her yearbook photo proves it. 

Markle's quote from her 1999 yearbook at Immaculate Heart High School in Los Angeles reads, "Women are like teabags; they don't realize how strong they are until they're in hot water."

It's a famous line from former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt.

The words are surprisingly relevant now. See the yearbook photo below:

In 2020, the couple announced the shocking news that they would step down from their roles as senior royals, citing British media intrusions into their personal lives and its racist attitudes toward Meghan.

They are currently living in California and have inked deals with Spotify and  Netflix. Looks like they are both going to continue fighting.
