MEGHAN Markle is now one of the most recognised stars worldwide but just four years ago was pictured “climbing the ladder” at a high society party in 2016.
The then-Suits actress partied with Lizzie Cundy and Phones4U WAG Claire Caudwell at Claire’s pad in Mayfair in a never-before-seen snap.
Meghan can be seen in a silk, one-shoulder dress, wearing her trademark brunette locks down.
At the party, Lizzie and Claire reportedly attempted to find the American actress a “famous British man” to date after the breakdown of her marriage to TV producer Trevor Engelson.
It comes as Meghan reportedly “angered the Palace” after getting Oprah Winfrey to flog her new coffee investment on Instagram.
Palace insiders told The Mirror that there were “more than a few raised eyebrows” as it emerged that the Duchess of Sussex had invested in the oat-milk latte start-up Clevr Blends.
