Prince Harry's betrothed was featured on a Nickelodeon news program in 1993 (Nick News fans where you at) for writing a letter to Procter & Gamble regarding the language of their ad for Ivory dish soap.
"We privileged they've chosen Nottingham to be their first official engagement", the 81-year-old said.

They said: "Ms Markle can not wait to meet numerous young people Prince Harry has told her so much about".
Ms Scott said: "We love the royals".
"I'm also a fan of Suits, so it is a chance to see a star of that too".

The pair laughed for several moments before Hardman handed Harry a gift bag containing fridge magnets and other goodies, according to Britain's Press Association.
'I understand given Meghan's age it's now or never, I just feel it's a bit harsh on Catherine, as in any scenario she'll not overly get to celebrate the day.
The new royal couple is already on the job, just days after revealing their engagement.
"This is the country that's going to be her home now and that means travelling around, getting to know the towns and cities and smaller communities", he said. A little while later one of Harry's aide took the blooms from her. The American plans to become a British citizen.
