Prior to marrying Prince Harry in 2018, Meghan was known for her role on the US legal drama Suits. Her ambition to become an actress was inspired by the shows she watched and time spent on TV sets as a child. One of her favourite programmes was Beverly Hills, 90210, where she had a soft spot for one of the teen drama’s main heartthrobs.
During a Pop Culture Personality Test, Meghan revealed that Luke Perry was her “first celebrity crush”.
The future royal beamed as she added: “Wasn’t everyone’s Dylan McKay?”
Perry’s character was the son of a business tycoon and appeared multiple times from 1990 until his final appearance in 2000.
Meghan admitted that she was surprised when she spotted her teenage crush in public many years later.
She recalled: “I recently saw him bicycling around the Hancock Park area in LA with his kids.
“I was like that is so funny, I now feel really old, he’s got kids and I no longer have a Luke Perry pillow.”
Meghan also revealed that she had once penned a fan letter to Baywatch star Yasmine Bleeth, who first played lifeguard Carline Holden in 1993.

She burst into hysterical laughter as she recalled meeting the TV star, while working at an ice cream store in Los Angeles.
Meghan said: “Oh my god, I remember… that’s the only one I ever wrote and then I saw her.
“It was my first job, it was called Humphrey Yogart, and I saw her in the parking lot and what did I say to her? The most ridiculous thing you could say.”

Meghan reenacted her starstruck moment where she was unable to speak due to excitement, in a 2013 interview with Entertainment Weekly.
Imitating her young self, she breathlessly gushed: “Oh my God… I love you so… I loved you in… in that Soft & Dri commercial.”
Instead of listing her more famous role she felt embarrassed over having mentioned Ms Bleeth’s 1997 TV advert for Soft & Dri antiperspirant.
Meghan recalled her response: “She just looked at me very blankly like, ‘Ok, thank you’ and I walked very meekly back into Humphrey Yogart.”
During the quick-fire questions, the star also revealed that she often yelled at the TV screen when the quiz show Jeopardy! was on.
She said: “I’ll tell you why, because I have so much of my pride involved in that game.
“When I play with someone else and I get it wrong ‘Ahhh!’ – or when you know the answer but you don’t say it right, it drives me nuts!”
Meghan added that she had watched When Harry Met Sally… countless times and quoted several of her favourite lines from the 1989 romantic comedy.
