She was only eight-years-old but a newly emerged video of bride-to-be Meghan Markle has shown she was destined for stardom.

She was only eight-years-old but a newly emerged video of bride-to-be Meghan Markle has shown she was destined for stardom.

A world away from the life she now lives, the recently discovered clip shows Prince Harry’s fiancee dancing to Madonna’s 1990 hit Hanky Panky, a song about bondage where the eighties icon repeatedly asks then boyfriend Warren Beattie to spank her.

The song was a surprising choice for the end of term talent show at Hollywood Little Red School House, in Los Angles where Meghan grew up.

The Suits actress wears a 1920s-style flapper dress in the clip as the lyrics to the song were inspired by Madonna’s role in the comedy film Dick Tracy.

The video was shot by the parents of Meghan’s childhood friend Ninaki Priddy, now 37, who said: ‘I remember our moms having to make our dresses. I think we were all excited about it.’

But she added the song was ‘tawdry for fourth graders’ adding: ‘If you did it now, some kind of Parent Teachers’ Association conference would have been called.’

The clip also shows Meghan stood in a choir formation and singing in Spanish.

The video, shot later in the year at The June Show shows young Meghan singing to Abre las Ventanas al Amor (or Open the Windows to Love, in English) by Brazilian Roberto Carlos.

Later, the bride-to-be, who later found fame starring as paralegal Rachel Zane in Universal Cable show Suits, smiles on stage as her name is read out for a recognition award.

In another video recorded the following year, Meghan is dressed in a kimono for a Japan-themed show.

Meghan appears to have a leading role dressed in a white kimono with her hair tied back in the 1991 show.

She later stands after her name is read out for another recognition award.

In front of staging that reads ‘One Planet One People’, the name of the show, Meghan and her classmates chant ‘We are the future. We are the lawmakers of tomorrow’.

The children then sing a rendition of Whitney Houston’s Greatest Love of All, with emphasis on the line ‘I believe the children are our future.’

Earlier this month another home video of young Meghan emerged.

The clips show the future royal presenting the ‘Meghan and Niki Awards’ with her best friend Ninaki Priddy at the Hollywood Little Red House School in June 1993.

Then aged 11, Prince Harry’s fiancee – whom he will marry at Windsor Castle on May 19 – is seen onstage at the ceremony wearing a striped T-shirt and denim shorts.

The two best friends honour their favourite teachers with plaques and receive their graduation diplomas from school principal Miss Debbie.

In the video footage, Meghan beams onstage and poses for photos in her white academic hat alongside another three classmates.

Wearing funky sunglasses, she then introduces a performance to ‘Roll Over Beethoven’ where she and her classmates dance to the Chuck Berry classic.
