Meghan Markle's aspirations towards royalty have been a topic of intrigue for many. A recent revelation by a close source sheds light on her early dreams of becoming a queen, albeit in a different context than one might expect.

As a 12-year-old, Meghan Markle once dreamt of becoming the 'Queen of Bolivia'. This aspiration came to light after she befriended the son of a Bolivian president during her school days.

For a brief period, she would proudly proclaim,

"I’m going to be Queen of Bolivia."

The source, speaking to author Tom Bower, emphasized Meghan's unwavering ambition. "Her ambition was never in doubt," the source stated, adding that Meghan's frequent visits to studios fueled her desire for fame.

Meghan's friend, Ninaki Priddy, also weighed in on the Duchess's early fascinations.

She revealed that Meghan was "always fascinated by the Royal Family" and often "felt like a princess" during her school plays.

Fast forward to her adult life, Meghan's royal aspirations became a reality, albeit in a different manner.

She met Prince Harry in 2017 through a blind date arranged by a mutual acquaintance. The couple tied the knot in 2018, and Meghan became the Duchess of Sussex. They welcomed their first child, Archie Harrison, in 2019.

Meghan's journey from dreaming of Bolivian royalty to becoming a member of the British Royal Family is a testament to her determination and the unpredictable paths life can take.
