In 2015, a year before she met her husband Prince Harry, then-actress Meghan Markle visited Malta to explore her family roots.
On Wednesday, never-before-seen photos of the now-Duchess of Sussex on her trip to the European island country were made public.
The pics show Meghan wearing traditional headdresses, including a Maltese għonnella, navigated cobblestone streets and showcasing her chic style and signature smile.
Meghan’s great-great-grandmother, Mary Bird, was born in Malta in 1862.
“When asked to go to Malta to not only discover the beautiful island, but also the land from which my great grandmother hailed, I said yes without hesitation,” Meghan wrote on her now-shuttered blog, The Tig.
