Twitter Unearths The Sweet Book Meghan Markle Wrote About Her Freckles As A Teen

Updated article published on 23/06/21: Meghan Markle wrote a book about her freckles as a teen, the Library of Congress has revealed.

On Tuesday Carla Hayden, the 14th Librarian of US Congress, took to Twitter to share photographs of Markle’s book which was submitted to the US Copyright Office in 1996.

The book, titled A Face Without Freckles... Is A Night Without Stars, is about Markle’s love of her freckles.

‘Some people think freckles are strange/ while I happen to disagree/ because if I didn’t have my freckles / then I would not truly be me!’ reads a line from the book beneath a cartoon drawing of Markle.

'This is a super talented woman. Writing, activism have been in her book,' one Twitter user wrote on the post.

Another added: 'Any chance we can purchase copies of Meghan's book one day? I need this in my collection.'

In the 'About The Author' section, Markle’s high school photo features alongside text which states that she enjoys ‘watching television, spending time with her friends, and participating in musical comedies’.

The book was written when Markle was in the 8thGrade as a school project. ‘She wants to take a moment to thank her “mummy” and “daddy” who gratefully spent their time and effort supporting her,’ a tribute reads.

The book reveal comes five years after Markle revealed in a 2016 interview with British TV channel Dave - which broadcasted Suits in the UK - what she'd call a children's book about her.

'The glorious adventures of freckle faced Meg,' she noted.

The news comes days after Markle released her first children's book, The Bench, which was written as a tribute to her husband Prince Harry and their son, Archie.

'My hope is that The Bench resonates with every family, no matter the makeup, as much as it does with mine,' she recently told NPR Radio.

Article originally published on 06/09/18: Years before we spent hours scrolling through Instagram looking at pictures of Meghan Markle's royal outfits and adorable PDA moments with Prince Harry, the Duchess of Sussex was already dreaming up the title of her very own autobiography.

And, who can blame her?

With an acting career starting in Hollywood and leading to a recurring role in hit legal drama Suits, as well as roles as a UN Women ambassador, Markle's life was already on its way to making a fascinating page turner. And, that was long before the days of her royal life and relationship with Prince Harry.

However, in a 2016 interview with British TV channel Dave - which broadcasts Suits in the UK - Markle was questioned what she'd call a children's book about her.

Her response? 'The glorious adventures of freckle faced Meg,' she commented.

The former actress is widely recognised for her distinctive freckles, which she intentionally chooses not to cover up with heavy make-up.

Markle's former makeup artist, Lydia F. Sellers, previously explained to Refinery29 UK:

'Every time I'd do her makeup, she'd say, "Can we just make sure my freckles are peeking through? I don't want a ton of foundation." It was more about the amount of product that went on her skin and keeping it really fresh and dewy, rather than caking it on.'

The royal's love of freckles has even led to a new beauty phenomenon dubbed 'freckle tattoos', with women across the world adorning their cheeks with a sprinkle of Meghan's unique complexion.

During the interview, the former actress also revealed the first ever role she addition for was ('Hot Girl Number 1' opposite Ashton Kutcher), her kryptonite ('wine'), and the banger that's sure to get her up on her feet.

'"Murder on the Dancefloor",' she replied. 'It's a British song,' she explained before singing a line from the Sophie Ellis Bextor track.
