Touching Moment Meghan Hugs Fan, 17, She Made Friends With On Instagram
Meghan Markle today embraced a teenager she made friends with years ago on Instagram after recognising her in the crowd at Sandringham.
Jessica Daniels, 17, would often message the Suits actress on social media before she deactivated her accounts.
The teenager had been holding up a sign with her Instagram username, Jessica Scarlett, on it as she waited in the crowd outside St Mary's Magdalene church this morning.
When Meghan recognised the name, she instantly gave her old social media friend a hug.
Jessica, from Peterborough, said she would often ask Meghan questions or tell the former actress about her day through Instagram.
She said: 'I started watching Suits, then I started following her on social media and then followed her acting and followed her humanitarian work, so I've been a fan of her for years.
'There were a group of us girls on social media she became kind of close with and interacted a lot online.
'This is the first time I've met her, she just said "It's so lovely to meet you, incredible to finally see you" and she was asking how we all are and if we're still talking and supporting each other.'
The Suits fan also said Meghan used to comment on her photographs on social media.
Jessica was among hundreds who turned out to greet the Royal Family after their Christmas Day church service.
