Meghan Markle's former headteacher reveals incredible note Duchess wrote to help 'very shy' school pal

Caring Meghan penned the emotive handwritten letter to her fellow student at the Immaculate Heart High School in California back in 1993.

The letter reads: “Dear Michelle, You are so strong and so wonderful — your courage in strength in times of hardships is as admirable as your optimism and friendly nature.

“I am so lucky to have you in my group and to be able to lead you on this adventure.

"Never stop sharing your beautiful spirit and always remember how special you are.

"I am here if you ever need me. I love you, Meghan.”

The letter was unearthed by the newlywed's former headteacher Christine Knudsen, who said she received the letter from one of the students in Markle's group who said it had been written to help a "very shy" girl who was "a bit of a loner".

Speaking on the new documentary How to Bag a Prince, Ms Knudsen says: “Meghan wrote her the most wonderful loving note.

“Even though Meghan was not her close friend at all. It just shows the depth of [Markle’s] heart.”

Young Meghan's compassion extended beyond the classroom, according to her religious studies teacher at Immaculate Heart.

Maria Pollia told the show’s producers, “One day, after class, Meghan approached me and said, ‘So tell me more about serving on Skid Row.’

“And so I suggested she continued to volunteer at this soup kitchen in her senior year. Meghan always took it a step further, not just distributing food but learning people’s names, learning their stories.”
