Inside Edition: See Meghan Markle on ‘90s Nickelodeon Show After Protesting Sexist Commercial



This is the story that Meghan told in her UN Women speech. Inside Edition found the old interview in the children's news show in the 90s. I know some people have questioned the authenticity of that story in the past, but with the new engagement news, they went digging. It's absolutely true.

wOw! My estimation of Meghan just did a leap through the roof. This girl has been on a path to change the world and make a difference from quite a young age. There aren't many people that can actually say that.

BTW: I *love* her freckles! Our Harry has really hit the jackpot in the marriage market.

Isn’t that amazing! I remember Nick News with Linda Ellerbee. It was the place where kids voices could be heard on very important topics. There hasn’t been a show like that since then.

It’s heartwarming that Meghan voice and letter actually made a difference in that commercial. It takes good parenting to raise a child like that.

The young woman knows how to lead.

Yes, thanks for posting this. Meghan was blasted all over the Internet months ago for being a fantasist and a liar when she mentioned the incident in the UN.speech. Well, they can't say that now.

I remember hearing the story about the commercial, in her UN speech. Its great to actually see it

Meghan obviously has strong convictions, and ones not recently acquired either. I hope she continues strong with the woman's rights issues in her new role. I think she and Camilla could work well together on domestic abuse issues. Meghan definitely hasn't and wont shy away from harder subjects it seems.

So well spoken, thoughtful and inspiring even before she became a teenager. She's special, indeed. Now many more people will discover that. Amazing!

I can't help but notice that there is an adorable looking photo of Meghan and her dad wearing fancy clothes on Young Meghan's desk. It looks to me like he may have taken her to an awards show.

Seeing Meghan as a child speaking about those commercials is really interesting to me because at that age a person is developing their own identity and interests in an "innocent" kind of way, which is rather more different from how an adult develops an interest in something. It show that her views didn't just develop to make herself more popular etc, but were always there from a very young age.

Those are the same thoughts I had myself, Jack. It gives even more credence to the idea that her acting career was a way for her to be able to get more involved in making a difference in the world. Its been part of her agenda and makeup since she was a young girl.

She probably picked up a lot of self confidence at being on a studio set from hanging out with dad and the belief that she could do anything from both of her parents. Harry's radar was working top notch when he met her and instantly knew that he had found a gold mine in Meghan.

I've been trying to tell myself that he's evolved as a person and is less of a racist...

Doria could take him anyway.

As Lady Nimue posted we are proud of her here in L.A.

But what fascinates me personally about this young lady is where she has come from versus where she is now.

She did/does not have the advantage of a tight, structured, supportive and emotionally nurturing family background coccoon like Kate Middleton.

She does not have the ancient aristocratic lineage of a Stephanie de Lannoy(knights of the Golden Fleece, soldiers, diplomats) which would have guaranteed her enthusiastic entree into virtually any Royal or noble family in Europe.

And yet in a few months she is going to be a peer of these young women...a Royal Highness with all that comes with it.

At the very least she possesses inner qualities of discipline, determination and intelligence that must be formidable.

I'm so glad they found this because I know a certain group said that MM lied about this story in her UN speech, but I vaguely remember this story when it happened and I knew it was true! MM has always been smart and engaged!

I think she did get a very nurturing, supportive and emotionally nurturing family coccoon - from her MOTHER's side of the family. There is a reason why that side of the fam has been extremely tight lipped and hasn't done a thing to embarrass her - unlike her father's side.

I hope we get to see some of her Aunts at the wedding too. I can't wait for the hats!!!

I agree with you.

But Doria -God bless her, is no Carole Middleton. Markle's entire family did not close ranks around her during her courtship of Harry. With the exception of the louche Maison de Bang Bang Uncle Gary all of the Middletons kept their mouths shut and did not do anything to embarrass her.

My point is that Kate had a mother AND a father very much in the picture to support her, not to mention Pippa and James.

Meghan seems to have been left pretty much own her own during the courtship with nobody to help her other than Harry and Doria.

Lol I think the same! I am actually shock that the Queen allow the wedding for this same reason,
Though we leave in a different era and thanks god for that! and I think they will have gorgeous kids. Wonder how Philip and the Queen will react if the baby is more African American look?

I think the suggestion that the Queen or the Duke of Edinburgh harbour any genuine racist sentiments is a bit over the line. I very much doubt either of them gave a second thought to her colour.

I think HM is much more practical,highly evolved and humane than she is given credit for. I cannot see her denying her grandson the right to marry an intelligent, educated, accomplished woman that he is deeply in love with because of the amount of melatonin she has in her skin.

As for the racial/ethnic appearances of the Harry/Meghan children they will be about 1/4 African American. No one who doesn't know that their mother is mixed will be able to tell them apart from their cousins...I can virtually guarantee this.

Not that I am sure why it matters if if they DO look different. They will be beautiful.
