School is sparkling for Markle

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS - SARAH BLAKE US COR­RE­SPON­DENT

EX­CITE­MENT is build­ing for Meghan Markle’s mar­riage to Prince Harry, es­pe­cially at her old school.

Her for­mer Los An­ge­les school has planned a high tea and week­end slum­ber party for hun­dreds of stu­dents to watch the cer­e­mony, which takes place at 4am lo­cal time. Long be­fore Markle was among the most recog­nis­able faces in the world, she was a stand­out scholar and leader at the all-girl Im­mac­u­late Heart High School in Los An­ge­les. “Many of the stu­dents here al­ready heard about Meghan Markle long be­fore her in­volve­ment with Prince Harry, be­cause we play the speech she gave to the United Na­tions in class,” said school spokes­woman Cal­lie Webb.

On a brief tour of the school last week, Ms Webb pointed out the stage where Markle made her act­ing de­but — and where her dad Thomas Markle built the sets.
