Intimate snaps of Meghan show what life was really like for her growing up

Intimate snaps from Meghan Markle’s photo album have given an insight into what life was like for her growing up in California.

The pictures suggest Prince Harry’s fiancée, now 36, dreamed of becoming a princess from an early age, wearing a blue fairytale dress at a fancy dress party.

The candid photographs also show the former actress looking relaxed at school with friends.

One playful snap shows Meghan covering her eyes while sitting on the floor at school with pals, while another shows her on stage – demonstrating how her acting ambitions also developed early on. 

The new photos come after other remarkable snaps showed a teenage Meghan posing outside Buckingham Palace at the age of 15 with friend Ninaki Priddy. 

Here, FEMAIL takes a look at the pictures that show how a happy-go-lucky Meghan grew up to be a princess…
