The exclusive photos of the girl who would become Prince Harry's fiancee were shared by her childhood friend, Ninaki Priddy.

The girls were inseparable from their first days at Hollywood’s private Little Red School House, which they both joined at the age of two, before moving on together, aged 11, to the Immaculate Heart girls’ school, also in Los Angeles.
