Meghan, who had not long started in legal drama Suits, is seen sitting at a Christmas table miming the lyrics to the tune with a Santa hat on.

She is also smiling and nodding in step with the song.

The montage-style video also features cameos by much better known stars including Olivia Newton-John, David Copperfield and Hugh Jackman.

One viewer who spotted her said: “I suppose at the time she was starting out and any publicity would have been good.”

The video was filmed four years before she met Prince Harry and while she was all-but unknown in Britain.

Marx, a US Grammy award-winning singer, persuaded his actor pal Rick Hoffman to appear. He was starring in Suits at the time.

Marx, now 57, said Rick then got Meghan and fellow co-star Sarah Rafferty to join in as well.

The song was a minor hit in the US and the video has just 123,608 views on YouTube despite being uploaded in 2012.

And the fleeting appearance by Meghan, 39, has gone unnoticed until now.

The viewer who spotted her added: “It’s amazing.

"Meghan wouldn’t have been noticeable at the time and now she’s one of the most famous women in the world.

“It’s a very cheesy video but good fun.

"You wouldn’t imagine the woman there with the Santa hat on would go on and become so successful and famous.

“The transformation over the years to Duchess and part of the Royal Family is incredible.

“It’s funny to see. She looks really down-to-earth. It’s all good fun.”
