This may explain someone seeing Meghan Markle sporting a White Sox cap.

I sort of doubt that...does she have some specific connection to the hip-hop world? Also, she was wearing an adjustable cap with a curved bill...every hip-hop artist I've ever seen wearing a Sox hat wears a fitted one with a flat bill.

She went to school at Northwestern. I think she might actually like the Sox.

Maybe but she was a life long cali girl so if she was a baseball fan I doubt she suddenly became a Sox fan when she went to northwestern. Maybe she just told someone to get cap as a disguise for her and they got a Sox cap.

I vaguely recall that British people who knew nothing about baseball and were shown all 30 MLB caps ranked the Sox cap as #1.

In my book the greatest rap Album of all time, The Chronic. Dre and rival Easy E really gave that Sox hat major play during that era.
