The royal life seems to be Suit-ing former actress Meghan Markle. She has a to-die-for engagement ring with stones from Princess Diana's collection, she stole the show in her royal engagement photos in a sheer Ralph & Russo number, and she gets to be Kate Middleton's future sister-in-law. Plus, as part of her new social status, the bride-to-be will probably get to rock a tiara or two during royal public appearances. But, believe it or not, this won't be the first time Markle has sported said sparkly headpiece, and we sense some serious foreshadowing.

Photos just surfaced of Prince Harry's future bride from her high school homecoming and Markle was, in fact, the oh-so-regal homecoming queen. In the photo, Markle, who doesn't look like she's aged a day since then, smiles and poses with the homecoming king (lucky guy). She wore a simple strapless violet dress (also potential foreshadowing for Pantone's color of the year?), a silver necklace, and, of course, a silver tiara. Markle's also holding a bouquet of flowers to celebrate her high school achievement.

While she has clearly accomplished many more notable things since her teens, we can't help but wonder if this is a sign she was destined to marry royalty (prom/homecoming queens, take note).

While Markle is by no means obligated to wear a tiara on her wedding day, a royal-wedding crown would definitely be a step up from her plastic high school version. She'll most likely have a wide range of historical royal tiaras to choose from. Markle would also be following in Kate Middleton's footsteps. The Duchess donned a silver tiara with over 1,000 diamonds (casual) on her wedding day. And, TBH, now that we've seen Markle sporting a tiara, we have to say it looks pretty good on her.

Besides the date and venue, royal wedding fans have little information regarding any other planning details. We're still left guessing who made the cut for the guest list, who will stand by Harry as his best man (considering he hasn't officially asked his brother yet), and what style wedding dress Markle will wear. Rumors have circulated that esteemed bridal designer Inbal Dror might be lucky enough to design the bride's royal wedding dress, but the label has remained tight-lipped about any other pressing details.

It seems like we might have to wait until May 19 to catch a glimpse of Meghan Markle's wedding dress. We can't wait to see how she accessorizes her bridal look for the big day—with or without a complementary tiara.
