The 39-year-old Duchess of Sussex didn't know the shot would come back to bite her when she posed with the royal-inspired cover two years before dating Prince Harry.
In the shocking 2014 photo, the former Suits actress can be seen smiling while proudly showing off the copy of the Irish U Magazine cover not knowing the woman on the front would later become her estranged sister-in-law.
The image has once again made the rounds following Meghan's telling Oprah Winfrey interview where she claimed she didn't grow up "knowing much about the royal family."
As RadarOnline.com reported, Jesal Parshotam, who is one of the most successful photographers in the business, claimed Markle would call the paparazzi on herself in order to land her photo in magazines prior to her relationship with Harry.
Joining Dax Holt and Adam Glyn on the Hollywood Raw podcast, Parshotam was asked if the star ever tips off photographers and his response was very telling.
"I'm going to have to say no comment," he told the guys.
When pushed further, the photographer responded, "I'll let you boys interpret that as you wish. I can't say it's a categorical no and I can't say it's a categorical yes."
According to The Royal Observer, Meghan Markle leaked stories to different media outlets citing one example that happened as recently as last year.
Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton's relationship has been strained in the recent years, which is partly to do with Prince Harry's feud with Prince William and Prince Charles.
The royal family is gearing up to celebrate what would have been Princess Diana's 60th birthday and Harry is reportedly demanding his wife be a part of the festivities despite being too pregnant to travel.
