Elizabeth McCoy, now a renowned chef and scriptwriter, attended the same elite Los Angeles-based school as Meghan, Little Red School House. She told royal biographer Andrew Morton how other children thought she was “odd” but that Meghan provided friendship and helped her when she suffered seizures. In his 2018 book ‘Meghan: A Hollywood Princess’ Mr Morton commented that Meghan had “inherited her mother’s strong sense of right and wrong”.
Ms McCoy recalled: “You never forget the people who were mean to you and who was nice. That’s why I have never forgotten Meghan.
“She was one of the most righteous people I’ve ever met.
“If someone was being treated unfairly she stuck up for them.”
Ms McCoy said she was frequently taunted by the school’s “mean girls” because she was intense, overweight and interested in off-beat subjects like UFOs, the occult and ghosts.
