Meghan Markle is a harsh food critic in children's culinary show | Daily Mail Online

There’s a pic in the story showing Meghan wearing a black cap and gown and says it from her university graduation. I always thought Northwestern’s graduation colour is purple. Are there any other pics from her graduation available?
Here's one from the year after with the graduate wearing black

This looks like a graduate school graduation gown. The thing across the neck is typical of graduate school. Usually there is only a plain gown for undergrad. Some might have tassles for different society, but that's different.

The regalia companies started offering school-specific gowns a few years ago - a nice way to make a bit of extra cash. Many students still elect to wear black and black is usually the only option for the low-cost option. For example, I'm graduating in 4 days. If I chose the generic gown it would have cost me $54 USD but if I ordered the custom regalia for my university the cost was $733 USD.

I didn't know that schools allow for different colors in the gowns now? When I graduated from undergrad, we all had to wear green. And I'm still in graduate school, but my cohorts that are graduating are all wearing the same school specific as well. But the one Rudolph posted has the Master Graduation Hood. It's not for undergrad, which Meghan was.

I can almost certainly confirm Meghan went and graduated from Northwestern. A close relative is an alum and as such gets an alumni newsletter. Needless to say a picture of Meghan and Harry, announcing her as a Northwestern graduate, was in the newsletter. So unless this is an elaborate ruse which even the University decided to be a part of, she definitely went and graduated from Northwestern.

I think any further doubt of if Meghan graduated from Northwestern is fruitless. It's a prestigious school where people are proud to have attended or now work for. Someone would've said something by now if she didn't graduate.

You can literally pull up archival commencement programs from the year she graduated. How people still going with this conspiracy theory is beyond me.

This thread is about Meghan’s family and background. Comments about the Daily Mail and other media outlets are off-topic and have been deleted. If you wish to discuss the media, take it to the Royal Family and media thread.

Also, there’s been a lot of back and forth bickering and personal swipes between members. Please stop. Not only is it against the forum rules, but it’s unpleasant to read and disruptive to the thread. This is a forum with many different opinions. Some of those opinions you’ll agree with and some you will not. No matter your feelings, we expect you to be respectful to one another.

Any further off-topic posts will be deleted.

On the topic of Meghan's background and to me worse than even Samantha and Thomas Markle, neither of whom was clearly ever close to Meghan, is Ninaki Priddy.

I cannot understand how after 30 years of friendship, falling out or not, Ninaki can sell out her former friend like this. Even if I were no longer friends with someone out of respect for our former relationship, I would never bad mouth them to others and certainly NOT so publicly and I thought most courteous humans understood that. And to add insult to injury, both Ninaki and her mother are selling all these photos and videos to the DM. It's so mercenary and underhanded and just utterly malicious.

Interesting. I seem to remember wearing a black robe and cap.

I agree. Meghan was never close to the Markles, they have nothing to tell about her. But Priddy was a really good friend for 30 years, and she's not only selling all of the pictures she has of Meghan, but trashing her to the tabloids too. It's a sad way how this all has come out, but Priddy has proved, that she's the only one from their friendship group of four whom Meghan is not close with any more. She's still very tight with the other two friends from way back.

I agree. If you look at the videos you can see that Meghan was the focus of a lot of these videos and not Ninaki which is odd cos Ninaki's parents recorded those videos. She seems to harbour a lot of deep seated resentment for Meghan. Her siding with Trevor in the divorce convinced me something happened between her and Trevor.

Something never made sense to me about this whole thing with the ex-bestfriend. Would any of us end a 30 year friendship because your best friend left her husband? And given that Meghan has remained close with other friends before she became well known on Suits, the narrative that Meghan left people behind when she became famous isn't true.

We don't know the whole story and information is missing. A 30 year friendship does not end just like that. And she said something strange in her early tabloid stories...about how Meghan does not forgive anyone or soething to that effect. Now, if she is blaming everything on Meghan...what and why would Meghan need to forgive? As I said...things dont add up.

Very astute. Plus the fact that it's pretty clear Meghan was committing to the relationship, marrying the long time boyfriend just as she moves far away. Something happened in the space of a year or so and we will never know, of course, but we can surmise. Thank you for pointing out the early comments of the former friend.

That is thing no one ends friendship like that. Also note that she was the one that ended the friendship and not Meghan.

Didn't know that either! The narrative has been presented that Meghan became famous on Suits and left her family, husband and best friend of 30 years behind. Makes no sense whatsover. But I do believe that the information that is lacking will be revealed at some point in time.

Priddy claims she walked away from Meghan after her marriage ended. The whole thing is very suspect especially considering Priddy contradicted herself constantly in that interview. The fact that their close group remains intact minus her tells me all I need to know. She will continue selling stories because she seems obsessed with Meghan. Seems she has been for a long time if those videos are any indication.

I have my suspicions about Nikkai but she is now fair game with the media now that Harry and Meghan are going to be out of the spotlight until the wedding. The tabloids have to fill the void somehow, and they are going to play "This is your life Nikkai Priddy".
