Meghan’s childhood mate raised concerns about her marrying Prince Harry

Listen Now

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had a fairytale wedding in May 2018 and their royal journey, however, has not been easy since then. Meghan’s high school friend Simone Burns Dilley had mixed emotions especially when it came to the British press.

The Duchess of Sussex’s high school friend, Simone Burns Dilley, was reportedly ‘worried’ about her tying the knot to Harry. “We were excited for her, but … at the same time, I was worried,” Dilley recalled in a clip from a new episode of E! True Hollywood Story, airing Monday, March 22. “She was divorced, she’s half-Black. I was like, ‘Oh, my God. They’re gonna be so mean to her.’”

Even before they walked down the aisle, the British press had racial undertones in the pieces they carried regarding the Duchess. 

Addressing the same, Harry said in 2019, “There comes a point when the only thing to do is to stand up to this behavior, because it destroys people and destroys lives. Put simply, it is bullying, which scares and silences people.”

The Suits alum, 39, was previously married to movie producer Trevor Engelson from September 2011 to August 2013. Meghan and Harry, 36, started dating after they were introduced through friends in July 2016 and announced their engagement just over a year later. Millions around the world watched as the pair exchanged vows at St George’s Chapel in Windsor, England, in May 2018.
