Bridgit, clearly inspired by the elder brother's wedding, sings on the track, "You'll be my William, I'll be your Kate/ Livin' like a fairytale/ We could have a palace right next to Oprah…"
First of all, the chances of Kate and William being besties with Oprah.

How many times did you belt out these lyrics in high school, without realizing they would be oh-so-relevant more than a decade later?

If you're like us and also listened to the Glee version, you'd know to instinctively say, "What up Oprah!" just like Archie (ahem, we mean Artie).

Not even the Easter Egg queen could have seen this one coming.

Needless to say, there's the obvious reference that Prince Harry is the Prince and Meg, an American, is Miss Americana.
Meghan Markle Pens Powerful Letter to Students for International Women's Day
A year ago, the Duchess of Sussex visited students at the Robert Clack Upper School in Dagenham, England.In a letter to the school, which it shared on Thursday, Prince Harry's wife wrote thanking them for the "fond memories" they gave her and acknowledged how "difficult it's been for students and families during the past year" amid the coronavirus pandemic.
But a closer reading of the lyrics could connect to the deeper challenges the couple faced in the spotlight that made them set off for America.
"You know I adore you/ I'm crazier for you/ Then I was at sixteen/ Lost in a film scene," the song begins, describing a blossoming love. The infatuation with the film industry applies to Meghan, who famously acted on Suits before becoming a royal. However, her very first (albeit minor) role was in 1995, at age 14, on the TV show Married... with Children.
The 2019 song goes on to describe how Miss Americana was treated poorly, but found solace in her Prince.
T.Swift sings, "No cameras catch my pageant smile/ I counted days, I counted miles/ To see you there/ To see you there/ It's been a long time coming but/ It's you and me/ That's my whole world/ They whisper in the hallway, ‘She's a bad, bad girl.'"
It seems like it could represent Meghan being hunted byand being blamed for #Megxit, before the couple as senior royals and establish a new life across the pond.
You can't make this up: According to Taylor's lyrics, Miss Americana and her Prince ultimately run away to escape the cameras and whispers. She sings, "Voted most likely to run away/ With you."
Granted, many sleuths see "Miss Americana" as an allegory for the 2016 and 2018 U.S. elections, but after that Oprah sit-down, we'll certainly never be able to hear it the same way again.
