All the times Meghan Markle dressed like Princess Diana

meghan markle princess diana

Call it a coincidence or not, but Meghan Markle has taken a leaf out of Princess Diana’s sartorial book more than once since she started her official Royal duties. There was the time she wore the late Princess’ ring on her wedding day, and when she was inspired by her for her Trooping the Colour dress.

Just yesterday, Meghan was spotted wearing a button-down dress for the Queen’s Young Leaders Awards Ceremony, which resembled an outfit Diana wore at the Order of the Garter ceremony back in 1992. So we thought it was about time we’d look back at all the other times Meghan copied Diana’s style.

The button-down skirt suit

Meghan wore this chic suit for the Queen’s Young Leaders Awards Ceremony, while in 1992, Diana wore a similar dress for the Garter Ceremony. While Diana wore a hat and Meghan didn’t, both dresses had cream buttons down the front, and a belt to accentuate the waist.

The Royal Ascot dress

For her first Royal Ascot appearance, Meghan opted for a chic monochrome look. The embroidered shirt dress was by Givenchy, and she accessorised with a Philip Treacy hat. In 1985, Princess Diana also opted for black and white in a chic skirt suit with matching hat.

The pink off-the-shoulder dress

For Trooping the Colour, Meghan broke Royal protocol by showing off her shoulders in a chic Carolina Herrera dress with buttons down the front. This was reminiscent of the Catherine Walker gown Diana wore to visit the Berlin Opera House in 1987, don’t you agree?

The blue floral dress

In June, Meghan and Harry attended the wedding of Princess Diana’s niece, and whether on purpose or not, Meghan went for a floral Oscar de la Renta dress which was remarkably similar to a Catherine Walker tunic worn by Diana in the Gulf States in 1986. The bride, Celia McCorquodale, also wore the Spencer tiara (the one Diana wore on her wedding day) for the first time since Diana died.

The white coat

You’ll remember how Meghan wore a wrap coat by Canadian brand Line the Label for her engagement photocall, prompting their site to crash. Diana was also a fan of oversized white coats, and she wore this Versace number in London in 1996.

The striped dress

Meghan wore this cute pinstripe dress for one of her first official engagements, to attend the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in London in April 2018. Meanwhile, Princess Diana wore pinstripe suits many times, and we love this dress she wore in Australia in 1985.

Meghan Markle makes her royal ascot debut in style

OHMYGOSSIP — Exactly one month after the world watched the royal wedding, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made a surprise appearance in England Tuesday for the Royal Ascot opener. Queen Elizabeth II, her family and her guests will arrive at 2 p.m. each day during the royal procession, where they’ll be driven in horse-drawn carriages down the race track and into the pageant ring, E! Online mediates.

It’s the first time Meghan has attended the annual event, which began in 1768. She wore a Givenchy dress—the same label she wore for her wedding day—and a Philip Treacy fascinator. She likely impressed Queen Elizabeth II, who signs off on every detail, including the dress code.

Queen Elizabeth II arrived in the first carriage, joined by Prince Andrew, Princess Anne and Lord Samuel Vestey. Princess Beatrice, Prince Charles, Princess Eugenie and Camilla Parker-Bowles sat in the second carriage; Meghan and Harry joined Prince Edward and Countess Sophie in the third carriage; and Prince Michael of Kent, Princess Michael of Kent, Lord de Mauley Rupert Ponsonby and Lady de Mauley Lucinda Ponsonby sat in the fourth carriage. Prince William, meanwhile, was busy exploring the International Business Festival in Liverpool, and Mike Tindall and Zara Tindall welcomed Baby No. 2, a girl, Monday in Stroud.

Before the Royal Ascot, Kensington Palace announced Meghan and Harry will visit Dublin, Ireland on July 10 and July 11, at the request of Her Majesty’s Government. “The Duke and Duchess are looking forward to learning more about Ireland’s history and experiencing its rich culture,” the palace said, “as well as meeting the people who are shaping the country’s future.”

Meghan Markle Attends Royal Ascot, Wearing Givenchy Once Again

THREE’S A CHARM: While it may be Meghan Markle’s first Royal Ascot outing, it’s the third time the young royal has worn Givenchy, the brand she chose to wear on her wedding day.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived in a horse-drawn carriage with Prince Edward and Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, as part of the traditional carriage procession headed by the queen on the first day of Royal Ascot.
For each day of the Royal Ascot event, members of the royal family enter the racecourse from Windsor Castle via a horse-drawn procession, a tradition that dates back to 1825. This marks the start of the day’s racing events.

Royal Ascot has a strict dress code laid out in the Royal Ascot Style Guide. Last year Ascot approved jumpsuits on women, but they’ve yet to embrace the off-the-shoulder styles favored by Markle.
To honor the dress code, Markle wore a collared, buttoned-up embroidered white dress from Givenchy, which she paired with a monochrome black-and-white Philip Treacy hat.
Prince William and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, were not in attendance at the Royal Ascot. The duchess is still on maternity leave with little

The Duchess and the Queen! Meghan Markle and Queen Elizabeth Step Out Together for First Time

The Duchess and the Queen have arrived!

Meghan Markle stepped out in northwest England on Thursday morning alongside the ultimate royal companion: Queen Elizabeth herself. The monarch wore a lime green suit dress by Stewart Parvin and a matching hat by Rachel Trevor Morgan, while Meghan wore a light beige pencil dress with a cape top by Givenchy (her wedding dress designer!).

The new Duchess of Sussex, 36, and the Queen, 92, disembarked in Cheshire, some 200 miles from London, via the royal train in Runcorn after spending the night aboard. The train is a favored travel option for the Queen and other senior royals because it allows them to work and relax en route.

Not even a month since Meghan married Prince Harry on May 19, this is the first occasion the Queen has taken her new granddaughter-in-law on an official visit. The joint outing is “happening at triple speed” compared to Meghan’s predecessor, Kate Middleton, royals author Ingrid Seward previously told PEOPLE.

First on the pair’s agenda: the Mersey Gateway Bridge, where Meghan and the Queen met architects, planners and community representatives. They also watched a performance by local school children before Elizabeth formally opened the bridge.

Their next stop is the Storyhouse in nearby Chester, where they were set to meet a Syrian settlement group, watch a performance by the Fallen Angels dance company and catch a medley of songs from a current production of A Little Night Music.

Their last appointment is set to be a lunch at Chester Town Hall with locals brought together by the council.

The outing is seen as the Queen’s way of helping immerse Meghan into public royal engagements. “It is the way of the royal family—all part of the training and getting used to being in public life and under public scrutiny,” Elizabeth’s former press secretary, Charles Anson, tells PEOPLE. “Showing people the ropes is a high priority for the Queen.”

Seward, author of the recent biography of the Queen and Prince Philip, My Husband & I, adds, “The Queen knows the potential pitfalls of not giving a guiding hand. She can’t expect Meghan to know everything without being shown. I’m sure she feels Meghan needs a steadying hand in these early days.”

Meghan returned to public royal outings shortly after her secret honeymoon with Harry, when she joined in the annual celebration of the Queen’s birthday, Trooping the Colour, on June 9.

Meghan, who married Harry just three weeks ago, showed she is a not going to be bound by royal precedent after she flouted tradition to wear an off the shoulder dress in the company of the Queen.

The little pink dress by Carolina Herrera was paired with an elegant Philip Treacy fascinator.

Even Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are fans of these best-selling scented candles

Aren’t we all?

Just like us, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are big fans of one of the most popular fragrance brands.

We already know that both Meghan and Harry wore a unisex fragrance created by Floris on their big day, but they went with a different perfume house to scent the venue.

The couple chose French perfumer Diptyque to scent their wedding and, although we don’t know the exact fragrance, its reported the couple chose a selection of fresh and floral scents.

Diptyque Candle Trio, £70, Net-a-Porter

A spokesperson for the brand has said, ‘We would like to express our sincere congratulations to Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on their wedding.

‘We were delighted to help scent their special day.’

The Sussexes aren’t the only Duke and Duchess who love a luxury candle, though; Kate Middleton and Prince William reportedly chose for Jo Malone candles to scent Westminster Abbey for their wedding back in 2011.

Kate’s fragrance of choice is reportedly the brand’s ever-popular Orange Blossom; an excellent choice, we might add.

It just goes to show that nobody is immune from a scented candle addiction…

What will Meghan Markle be learning in her six months of Princess lessons?

Watch your back Mia Thermopolis.

Stephen Lawrence Memorial, St Martin in the Fields, London, UK – 23 Apr 2018

Meghan Markle has fitted seamlessly into the royal family from the moment she started dating Harry, from bonding with the Queen’s corgis to getting an early invite to spend Christmas at Sandringham with the Windsors.

And now that the couple have tied the knot, Meghan is officially a royal, with the Queen giving Prince Harry and Meghan Markle the titles, Duke and Duchess of Sussex, as a wedding present.

The newlyweds made their first public appearance as Duke and Duchess at Prince Charles’ 70th birthday party at Buckingham Palace this week, with Meghan nailing Duchess chic in a Goat dress and Philip Treacy hat.

But while she is proving herself to be in the know on royal protocol, wearing tights to public engagements and curtsying to both the Duchess of Cambridge and Queen Elizabeth on the regular, it has been revealed that Meghan will be undertaking Princess lessons.

Yes, really. The former Suits actress is set to attend six months of princess lessons to perfect her approach to the role – everything from lessons about Ascot to banquet etiquette. and while unlike Mia Thermopolis, she won’t have Julie Andrews to turn to, one of her royal aides is set to stand in and teach her all things royal.

But what will she study?

‘In terms of etiquette, there may be some advice on “British” traditions such as tea parties and formal banquets,’ The English Manner Chief Executive Alexandra Messervy explained to InStyle of Meghan’s princess lessons. ‘There will be discussions on Royal Ascot and key events in the royal year, public outings, garden parties – which she did yesterday with aplomb grace and looked super—and I don’t think much else. Her Royal Highness has already shown she has film star poise and grace.’

Happy studying, Meghan.

Meghan Markle has the sweetest nickname for Prince Harry

This is too much.

REX

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot last weekend at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, in quite possibly the most star-studded ceremony in history.

But it wasn’t the royal wedding guests or Elton John’s surprise mini concert that got everyone talking. Instead it was Meghan Markle’s speech.

Yes Meghan broke royal protocol on the big day, not only walking herself down the aisle after her father pulled out, but also delivering a speech at the reception.

That’s right. It was a watershed moment at the Queen’s luncheon reception, when guests who were expecting speeches from Prince Harry, Prince William and Prince Charles, were treated to a few words from the bride.

According to reports, she nailed it, being the first to stand up and speak at the third part of the wedding day, delivering an affectionate speech to her husband and thanking the royal family for looking after her and being so welcoming.

It was one particular slip of the tongue however that really made viral news, as Meghan reportedly referred to the 33-year-old as ‘My Prince’ in her wedding toast.

‘This was a real breach of tradition. Usually the bride doesn’t talk. It is, of course, the father of the bride, but seeing there was no Thomas Markle, Meghan decided that she would speak,’ royal expert Katie Nicholls told Entertainment Tonight. ‘When it came to her new husband, Harry, she said, “I finally found my prince.”’

She continued: ‘It was very romantic and very sweet.’

Congratulations again to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Meghan Markle basically just called Kate Middleton one of her best friends

Despite the rumors you may have heard, Meghan Markle, the newly minted Duchess of Sussex, and Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, get on famously. Not only are they friends, but a recent overture from Prince Harry’s new bride has led us to believe that their friendship is next-level, aka they are best friends.

According to People, Markle gifted her closest pals a custom-made “Kensington” bracelet ahead of the royal wedding. The Zofia Day piece, a simple gold chain anchored by a matching flattened disc, is also now available for purchase — meaning you can be one of Meghan Markle’s best friends, whether she likes it or not. It’s no diamond tiara, but we think the delicate chain is enough to make us commoners feel sufficiently royal (or, you know, royal-adjacent).

The bracelet was given to six of Meghan’s closest friends, including Benita Litt and Jessica Mulroney, whose respective children served as bridesmaids and page boys during the ceremony.

Meghan Markle Has Brits Flying the Biracial Flag, But Will Americans Do The Same?

A lot has been made of the potential for Meghan Markle to disrupt the status quo for women, and black women, in particular.

No sooner did we learn her new title – the Duchess of Sussex – than she was playfully nicknamed the Duchess of Success. But success for whom, I wondered? Resulting in what?

Meghan Markle and the Larger Scale 

In the midst of #MeToo #TimesUp and the unapologetic return of feminism in full force, it felt oddly off kilter – all this fuss over a very traditional wedding hyped in fairytale talk of a “commoner” bride being elevated by marriage to a prince. So, like many, I was skeptical. What would Markle’s marriage into the royal family really mean on a larger scale, if anything? Wait and see, I thought. Well, yesterday, I did.

From the first glimpses of Markle and her mother, Doria Ragland, riding toward St. George’s chapel together, there was nothing common about the bride or the way she showed up. At 36, a child of divorce who was previously married herself, I was struck by her composure and self containment, and I was transfixed by the whole affair.

Why was I suddenly so caught up? Not because it was lovely (although it really was) but because the surprises abounded, from the bride’s “something blue” being the soles of her Aquazurra shoes, to far more compelling notes that made this royal wedding something strikingly new.

I was moved by the image of Ragland, beautiful, solitary, and clearly emotional, over her daughter’s shoulder as she recited her vows. Who could resist the children, the pageantry, the Kingdom Choir, the brilliant young cellist? But what impacted me most in the midst of #BlackRoyalWedding was how the bride was consistently referred to as biracial – as if it was a normal, everyday thing. Except that it was not. At least, not before this wedding. And certainly not in this country, the good ol’ USA.

In America, You Have to Choose

Biracial was not an acceptable descriptor of choice when Barack Obama made history as the first black American president. Nor when Halle Berry was hailed for being the first black woman to win an Oscar for a lead actress role. Actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Mariah Carey, both of whose mothers – like Berry’s and Obama’s – are white, are also routinely referred to as black. In both cases, it wasn’t where they began when their celebrity status first hit. (At one time, being Samoan, was more Johnson’s public focal point.) But it’s how they’ve evolved. Because, in America, you have to choose.

Drake, Misty Copeland, Lenny Kravitz, Alicia Keys, Colin Kaepernick, Jesse Williams, J. Cole, Jussie Smollet, Faith Evans, Sade, Bob Marley… the list of prominent celebrities who are biracial but identify as black is long. The list of biracial “commoners” is longer. Why must they self-select into one race and, in so doing, out of their other?

The reasons behind it are ancient and current, complicated and painful, as is everything in our country involving race. Which is why we avoid confronting those reasons – still – even in a year when it seems everything is being thrown on the table as the call-out culture revs.

Markle has never been confused about her identity. As she married a white prince on the most public day of her life, she rather boldly celebrated her innate blackness but she does not refer to herself as black, or white. Even as a child, she resisted the pressure to choose one of her races over the other, and she’s been crystal about the reasons why.

In a 2015 Elle magazine article, Markle recounted her first confrontation with having to check a racial box on a form in the seventh grade. Her teacher told her to check the Caucasian box. “Because that’s how you look, Meaghan,” she said. “I couldn’t bring myself to do that,” Markle wrote, recalling the sadness she knew her mother would feel if she did. Instead, she drew a small question mark then put down her pen, devastated.

When Markle told her father about it, his instructions were liberating: “If that happens again, you draw your own box.” And so she has, steadfastly refusing to be labelled as anything more limiting than what she is, a mixed race, or biracial, woman.

It seems so obvious. In an age of heightened sensibilities about micro-aggressions, in an era when #representationmatters and we have created new nomenclature for people to self-identify a full range of previously unacknowledged gender and sexual preferences, how ridiculous is it that we can’t get comfortable with people owning all that they are racially?

The sad truth is, particularly in American culture, where white and black have been at odds for so long, and where the dividing lines have in some ways deepened in recent years, nothing is as simple, as rational or right as it should be.

Perhaps that’s why yesterday’s royal wedding was the perfect platform for this moment. Because on such occasions, even the most cynical among us tend to get drawn into the shimmering beauty and hopefulness of it all. And because it didn’t take place on American soil.

Markle gave us a storybook wedding, but her handling of the details, shows her keen awareness of its larger impact. She knows that monarchies and their marriages are all about safeguarding the future of the lineage and this lineage will now be definitively multi-racial. She is doing her part to create room for her biracial children to have a different experience than she has.

Whatever else Markle has achieved in her life so far, it is no small feat that the massive worldwide press bowed to her will yesterday, embracing her multi-racial identity, and labeling it as precisely that.

Her newly royal status offered her the ability to compel that shift in a way that even her celebrity, frankly, never had, and she seized her giant moment on the world stage to make it happen. Perhaps Duchess of Success is already a fitting moniker, afterall.

The touching Meghan Markle moment you probably missed from the carriage drive

Sky news presenter, Sarah-Jane Mee was at the heart of the action…

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
The wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Carriage Procession, Windsor, Berkshire, UK – 19 May 2018

You may think you have gleaned every. single. detail from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s (AKA the Duke and Duchess of Sussex) glorious wedding day, from the secret to Meghan’s wedding hair, to those now immortal words Prince Harry whispered to Meghan at the altar in St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle (that resulted in two billion people across the globe becoming overnight lip-reading experts). But chances are, you weren’t actually there, on the front line where the action was playing out in real time.

Thankfully for us, Sky news presenter, Sarah-Jane Mee was, for the entirety of the celebrations, and has given us these behind-the-scenes tidbits that will have you reliving the Royal wedding for the billionth time (and no, we’re not sorry about it…).

‘The first glimpse we caught of Meghan was her arrival in the car to huge cheers in her Givenchy dress by designer Clare Waight Keller, it was a choice nobody predicted, her veil embroidered with flowers from all 53 countries of the Commonwealth and her Queen Mary diamond tiara was on loan from the Queen.

There was some rather amusing scenes amongst the Royals, as American Bishop Michael Curry delivered his sermon – the Queen looked a little bemused, the Duchess of Cornwall looked highly amused, Meghan looked thrilled. His style was loud and passionate, far from the quiet restraint we usually see at Royal weddings. The crowds outside loved it and he got a huge round of spontaneous applause.

Plenty of celebrity guests were in the Chapel including Carey Mulligan and her husband Marcus Mumford who is a great friend of Harry’s, Tom Hardy, Serena Williams, the cast of Suits and Idris Elba who secured an invite through his involvement with the Princes Trust charity – he said if it wasn’t for a grant from the Prince’s Trust he wouldn’t have got his start in acting… imagine that!

As they left the Chapel, we saw the couple kiss at the top of the steps… as they made their way to the bottom a cheeky member of the crowd shouted “how about another one!”, Harry laughed and looked at the crowd as if to say you’ll have to wait for that!

Following them out Prince Charles took both the arm of his wife the Duchess of Cornwall but also Meghan’s mother Doria, a lovely touch to show she is now part of the family, too.

The couple’s procession was infront of 100,000 strong crowd – fans had flown over from Canada, California, Malaysia as well as from up and down the UK.

Meghan pointed out a homemade sign from teenager Ayesha who had made a sign saying ‘Congratulations from Sussex’ to Harry as they went past. Also, Meghan’s old drama teacher was watching on the Long Walk, and Meghan spotted her saying ‘oh my god!’.

Elton John performed at the lunch reception and there were speeches from Prince Harry and his father. Guests like Serena Williams, the Clooneys, the Beckhams and Oprah Winfrey enjoyed bowl food of Pea and Mint risotto and Windsor Pork Belly.

Meghan choosing to speak at the more intimate evening gathering of 200 friends and family – a modern end to a traditional with the best of British and American – a perfect blend for a happy couple and very happy crowd.’

Meghan Markle, the New Duchess of Sussex, Wears Stella McCartney Dress to Wedding Dinner

CALLING STELLA: Having chosen a Givenchy Haute Couture dress by Clare Waight Keller for her walk down the aisle Meghan Markle, the new Duchess of Sussex, turned to yet another female British designer to dress her on her wedding day: Stella McCartney.

“I am so proud and honored to have been chosen by the Duchess of Sussex to make her evening gown and represent British design,” said McCartney. “It has truly been one of the most humbling moments of my career and I am so proud of all the team on this stunning sunny royal day.”
Markle changed into a sleeveless white silk crepe gown with a high collar for the black-tie dinner being hosted by Prince Charles at Frogmore House in Windsor. She paired the dress with Aquazurra satin shoes with baby blue soles.
The clean lines and silk fabric of the Stella dress echoed the minimal, unembellished design she wore for her walk down the aisle.

Meghan Markle Picks Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller for Her Wedding Dress

WINDSOR — Duty and discretion.
Meghan Markle, who became Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Sussex earlier this morning, telegraphed some very powerful messages to the British public — and the world — about the sort of royal she wants to be.
Stepping out of a vintage Rolls-Royce in a minimal and an unembellished Givenchy Haute Couture dress by the British designer Clare Waight Keller, a diamond tiara on loan from Queen Elizabeth, and a veil bearing symbols of the Commonwealth, this bride was out to prove that she’s all about simplicity, heritage, respecting tradition — and serving her public.

Not for her a glittering gown with a bejeweled veil. In Waight Keller she picked a talented, low-key British designer who is all about femininity, soft edges and beautiful fabrics. It was a fitting choice: After all, Markle may have married a son and brother of future monarchs, but Harry is now sixth in line to the throne — and will likely never get near it.
The couple also married at St. George’s Chapel on the Queen’s Windsor estate — not at Westminster Abbey or St. Paul’s Cathedral in London — and invited more than 2,000 members of the public to

Meghan Markle Asks Prince Charles to Walk Her Down Aisle in Absence of Her Dad: ‘It Was Her Wish’

Meghan Markle will walk down the altar with her future father-in-law, Prince Charles.

Kensington Palace announced Friday that Meghan, 36, has asked Charles, 69, to carry out the duty. Meghan had planned on having her father, Thomas Markle, by her side, but she “sadly” confirmed on Thursday that he would not be attending the royal wedding as originally planned.

“Ms. Meghan Markle has asked His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales to accompany her down the aisle of the Quire of St George’s Chapel on her Wedding Day,” the palace statement said. “The Prince of Wales is pleased to be able to welcome Ms. Markle to The Royal Family in this way.”

The royal bride-to-be asked Charles to take over the duty in the last 24 hours, since it was revealed that her father was not able to attend.

“It was Meghan’s wish and she is grateful for the Prince of Wales to be doing it,” a royal source tells PEOPLE.

DANIEL LEAL-OLIVAS/AFP/Getty

For the earlier part of the procession through the Nave of St. George’s Chapel, Meghan will be accompanied by her 10-strong squad of bridesmaids and page boys, which means she will walk down the greater part of the aisle without someone by her side.

Don’t miss out! Tune in to Meghan and Harry – a Fairy-Tale Wedding on Saturday, May 19, starting at 6 a.m. ET/ 3 a.m. PT on PeopleTV — now available on PeopleTV.com and on your favorite streaming device.

The Dean of Windsor David Conner will lead the way, followed by Meghan and her little bridal party, which includes Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 3.

A royal source says that it was always part of the “choreography” that the children would be with her for the first section of the walk through the Nave of the chapel, and then her father would take over for the final steps through the Quire (the last section of the church, where the immediate members of the royal family and close relatives will likely be seated). Now, Charles will greet her at the Quire to continue the final portion of her walk to the altar, where Prince Harry will be standing.

On Thursday, Meghan and Harry, 33, took part in a rehearsal with Prince William and Kate Middleton, George, Charlotte and other bridesmaids and page boys.

Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, was also at the rehearsal, where she met William and Kate and their children.

Until earlier this week, the plan was in place for Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle, to walk her down the aisle, Kensington Palace had confirmed on May 4.

It’s the event of the year! Be sure to keep up with all of PEOPLE’s royal wedding coverage and don’t forget to check out everything you need to know about Meghan Markle’s perfect style.

But then on Monday, that plan came to a halt after Thomas told TMZ that he had decided not to attend the wedding after it was revealed that he worked with a paparazzi agency to stage several photoshoots, featuring him reading a book about Great Britain, looking at photos of Meghan and Harry online and being fitted for his wedding outfit. He said that he didn’t want to attend and embarrass Meghan or the royal family. He also said that he had suffered a heart attack the previous week, but had checked out of the hospital in order to attend the wedding.

On Tuesday, Thomas backtracked on his statement and said that he would try to attend the wedding, pending any further medical issues. His change of heart came after Meghan reportedly contacted him and stressed to him how much she wanted him to be there. But then later that day, he said he wouldn’t be able to attend after all, because he needed to have surgery on Wednesday. He told TMZ that the surgery had been successful on Wednesday evening.

This is reportedly who is now walking Meghan Markle down the aisle

That’s a relief.

Stephen Lawrence Memorial, St Martin in the Fields, London, UK – 23 Apr 2018

The royal wedding is days away, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle set to wed on Saturday at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.

While the average wedding run up is stressful enough, Meghan Markle is having to deal with much more than most, with her father Thomas Markle caught in controversy this week as it was reported that he had colluded with photographers in a series of publicity stunts.

It was even reported that the father of the bride had pulled out of the wedding – four days before the nuptials – due to embarrassment over the scandal, with Kensington Palace issuing a statement asking for ‘understanding and respect’.

‘This is a deeply personal moment for Ms Markle in the days before her wedding,’ announced a palace spokesman. ‘She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr Markle in this difficult situation.’

With Thomas seemingly set to be absent, speculation was surrounding who would be filling his shoes and walking Meghan down the aisle, with rumours that it could be her mother Doria Radlan or brother-in-law Prince William.

According to recent reports however, it looks like Thomas Markle might be attending after all, with Mr Markle reportedly telling TMZ that Meghan had changed his mind.

Given that his health improves – he is apparently suffering with a heart condition – he should be there on Saturday to walk his daughter down the aisle.

‘Meghan Markle used to give us a shout out on Instagram!’

Missoma founder Marisa Hordern on the Royal and collaborating with one of the biggest bloggers around

Meghan Markle diet

Jewellery brand Missoma needs little introduction. If you hadn’t heard of it as one of Meghan Markle’s favourite fashion brands, you’ll probably have seen it all over your Instagram thanks to a super cool collaboration with influencer Lucy Williams.

So how do you go from collecting crystals to selling out within minutes? Marisa Hordern, the Founder of Missoma, reveals all.

How did the brand start?

You could say it was born the minute that my mother gave me my first crystal at five years old. Having spent all my pocket money on gemstones, it developed into something far more than just a childhood collection or hobby, as I started making jewellery around her kitchen table encouraged by my mother Michele and assisted by my sister Sophie. I then started sourcing gemstones from around the world from Hong Kong, Thailand, India and the US.

Founder Marisa Hordern. Photo: Missoma

Fast forward 10 years and I am now the Founder and Creative Director of Missoma. It’s a story which shows us that if we pursue what we love with dedication, perseverance and passion, exciting things can happen.

You’ve got a cult celeb following, how did that come about? Was this quite organic?

Over the years we have built up quite an amazing and varied group of women who wear Missoma in their own way, playing with their pieces and interpreting them with their own style. It’s one of the joys of fashion, seeing how people wear your designs. We have slowly made a name for ourselves as your perfect ‘every-day’ jewellery brand, and any Missoma owner knows, once you put it on, you’re hard-pushed to take it off.

Photo: Missoma

Margot Robbie was recently snapped at a Pre-Oscar party layering up her Lucy Williams x Missoma Necklaces, and the next day she was also spotted at the airport still wearing the pieces… The likes of Claudia Schiffer and Meghan Markle have been wearing Missoma for years – way before we were well known! And over time we have seen the cult following grow in a hugely organic.

‘Meghan Mania’ is in full swing, did you notice a massive difference when people became aware she was a fan of the brand?

Meghan has been wearing Missoma for a number of years, the beady-eyed will spy us in early Suits campaign photos. She has always been supportive of us as a British brand and used to shout out to Missoma on her Instagram wearing her personalised Gold Bar Necklace engraved with her name.

We are thrilled to see Meghan continues to rock her Missoma her way. She loves a stacking ring, and Missoma’s Interstellar Ring (£45) is a winning piece for its delicate style and entry price point for customers.

Photo: Missoma

It also highlights her down-to-earth personality and loyalty to the brands she has loved and worn for years. Whilst the Interstellar Ring has always been a strong seller for Missoma, we have certainly seen a great uplift in sales and conversation around the piece since Meghan wore it on her trip to Scotland, just as we did when she wore the infamous ‘H’ ring last year! On both occasion the rings sold out and went on pre-order, and we are confident will continue to sell well.

Shop now: 18ct Gold Vermeil Round Pave Interstellar Ring for £45 from Missoma

With the rise of Instagram and influencers, has your business model changed slightly?

With increased investment into our own online shop our brand model has definitely changed from a largely wholesale business to an online retailer. Instagram is our main social media channel, with 70% of all sales being attributed back to the channel at some point in their journey. Indeed in the first quarter of 2018 our Instagram following has grown by 20%, and we see a higher engagement rate than many much larger global jewellery brands.

Instagram Stories has also allowed us to further engage our customers in a behind the scenes glimpse of the brand, meeting the team and seeing what we are up to on a day to day basis, ultimately making the whole journey more personal for our followers. With this in mind, we treat our Instagram with a real lifestyle feel, we share a lot of user generated content, shoot our own images ‘in house’ and of course share content from our loyal influencers who over time have become great friends.

Talk us through your Lucy Williams collab.

Our long standing collaboration with Lucy Williams has definitely introduced us to a new audience, but even this was organic. Marisa and Lucy met through a mutual friend and formed a great friendship, and three years down the line with three collections under their belt, the collaboration is still going strong. The collab sees the coming together of Lucy’s much sought after style, Missoma’s distinctive design and finish, and allows the wearer to interpret it their own way. It is the perfect harmony of concept, creation and curation. More than anything, our customer and Lucy’s following have responded to its authenticity as a collaboration, which is testament to it’s continued covetability.

Shop now: Lucy Williams 18ct Gold Vermeil Square Malachite Necklace for £85 from Missoma

How would you describe the Missoma customer?

Whilst our biggest audience is between 25 and 34, girls and women of all ages love and buy the brand and I think this comes down to its simple every-day style, perfect for every generation. The Missoma girl is cool, ecclectic and cultured. Engaged in current affairs whilst might also be spotted at Coachella. She also has a love of travel but works hard too.

The Lucy Williams collab was a big hit, anything else exciting in the pipeline?

Loads of really exciting things in the pipeline for Missoma. We are currently working on some new creative collaborations … the rest you’ll have to keep an eye on Instagram for.. I’m afraid we can’t give away too much or else it will be all over Instagram!

How should we wear our jewellery for SS18?

SS18 is all about layering your necklaces, and at Missoma we have no less than 20 difference chains available across 4 different styles and 5 different lengths in yellow gold, silver and rose gold.. so the possibilities are endless! We just like to see you having fun with your jewellery and making it personal to you. There are no rules!

People Thought Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Were Ridiculously Cute in Matching Outfits for the Queen’s Birthday

Prince Harry and bride-to-be Meghan Markle were matching in navy blue at Queen Elizabeth’s star-studded birthday concert Saturday night — and people on social media took notice.

Markle wore a navy Stella McCartney caped dress with matching navy suede heels by Manolo Blahnik and carried a clutch by Naeem Khan. Prince Harry wore a smart navy blue suit. The two stepped out together for this event a little more than a month out from the royal wedding on May 19.

Queen Elizabeth, who turned 92 on Saturday, wore gold to her celebration at Royal Albert Hall.

 

The event was attended by most of the royal family — with one exception being Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, who is expecting her third child on Monday — and members of the public who could snag a ticket. (For those who couldn’t, the concert was broadcast live on BBC One and BBC Radio 2.)

The lineup fit for Her Majesty included Sting and Shaggy (who recently released an album together), Kylie Minogue, Sir Tom Jones, Shawn Mendes, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, the BBC Concert Orchestra, and more.

The event concluded with Queen Elizabeth acknowledging the crowd with a wave, but not before she gave a coy smile (and maybe an eye roll?) during a speech made by her son Prince Charles after he addressed her as “Your Majesty” and then “Mummy.”

Meghan Markle Shouldn’t Pack This for Her Honeymoon—Here’s Why

According to Travel + Leisure, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be heading to Namibia on their honeymoon. While everyone is eagerly anticipating Markle’s wedding dress, we’re also dying to know what she’ll be packing for her getaway. Thanks to a little help from our Who What Wear market editor, Nicole Akhtarzad, who honeymooned in Tanzania, we know something Markle shouldn’t pack.  

The resort Akhtarzad and her husband stayed at, the Singita Faru Faru Lodge, has some helpful packing advice on its website if you’re considering going on a safari. “Your safari suitcase, packed properly, will ensure that you have everything you need for the ultimate African bush experience,” the resort explains. “Cotton clothing in neutral colors is recommended for all game drives and bush walks. It is best to avoid white clothing and dark colors for bush activities, as they tend to attract certain bugs.” Who knew that certain colors should be avoided on a safari? Let’s hope Markle and Prince Harry are in-the-know about the style suggestions. Scroll down to shop our picks for what Markle should pack for Namibia.

GIRL POWER: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepped out to attend a Women’s Empowerment reception on Thursday in London.

It’s no secret that Prince Harry and Prince William are in love with some super stylish women and we’ve had our eyes on everything from the best Meghan Markle coats to our favourite Kate Middleton hats. While we’ve previously talked about the Kate effect and how anything she wears instantly sells out, it seems like that charm is rubbing off on the Suits actress with her Strathberry handbag famously selling out in minutes of her wearing it.

We’ve done some digging and curated our favourite handbags that Meghan has toted round, from massive leather carry-alls to demure designer pieces. Check it all out and find out where to snap up your own Meghan original below.

Meghan Markle Chloe Bag

This circular bag by Chloe is a bit of a pricey one, but oh so adorable. Meghan toted this geometric piece around during a Christmas Day service in Sandringham, matched perfectly to her brown leather gloves and hat. (Girl knows her accessories.)

This sleek boxy bag by Strathberry was instantly a winner when Meghan stepped out with it last December. Crafted from rich burgundy leather with a pop of powder blue on the sides, its contrasting white handles made it a vision in colour blocking. It’s called the Strathberry Midi Tote in Tri Colour Burgundy, Navy and Vanilla.

Not Just Meghan Markle: Here Are 6 Royal Black Women Around the World

Since the announcement of her engagement to British royal family member and unlikely heir to the throne—he’s sixth in line—Prince Harry, the microscope has been on Meghan Markle.

Every detail is being inspected about her life including her family life. She is the product of a white father and black mother—a social worker who lives in the mostly African American L.A. suburb of View Park-Windsor Hills (incidentally, one of the wealthiest black suburbs in the country).

After the royal wedding, set for May 19th, Markle will be addressed as “Her Royal Highness” and becomes not only a senior royal but a duchess, according to The Telegraph. 

It’s been a constant source of buzz—the first woman of color to become part of the British royal family. Yet, there are other black women royalnistas around the globe:

 

Princess Angela of Liechtenstein

Princess Angela (born Angela Gisela Brown) was a standout graduate of Parsons School of Design in New York and worked as a fashion director for Adrienne Vittadini, before marrying Prince Maximilian of Liechtenstein in January 2000. This Afro-Panamanian beauty also started her own line, A. Brown, which she headed for three years. The couple wed at the Church of St. Vincent Ferrer in New York, after reportedly meeting a few years earlier at a reception in the city. The princess wore a white dress which she designed and the same Kinsky royal-jeweled tiara that Princess Tatjana of Liechtenstein wore when she married Philipp von Lattorff in June 1999.

 

 

Baroness Cecile de Massy of Monaco

de Massy is married to Christian Louis Baron de Massy who is Prince Rainier of Monaco’s nephew. The fashionable beauty of Caribbean descent is a prominent fixture among the who’s who of Monaco’s social scene and is also involved in philanthropy, serving as president of Ladies Lunch Monte-Carlo, a charitable organization in Monaco.

 

Princess Sikhanyiso of Swaziland

The first of 30 children of King Mswati III of Swaziland, this princess is more than a pretty face, speaking out to raise awareness on issues such as AIDS and poverty that affect her country. With interests in the arts, this 30-year-old studied drama at the University of Biola in California and was featured in publications as one of the top hottest young royals.

 

 

Princess Keisha Omilana of Nigeria

A former model, spokesperson, and actress, Omilana adds brains to beauty as a businesswoman. The Inglewood, California native started Wonderful Brand, a multifaceted business incorporating fashion, television, and web, with her husband, Kunle, a Nigerian prince. Known as the “Pantene Girl,” Omilana is cited as the first African American woman to be featured in three consecutive commercials.

 

Countess Mary Von Habsburg of Austria

Habsburg, a native of Sudan, is the wife of Ferdinand Leopold Joseph Count von Habsburg of Austria. The couple wed in August 1999, hosting their ceremony in Nairobi, Kenya, and have three children, all born in Nairobi. Their marriage was seen as controversial among the public and in royal circles, because of her class as a commoner and her ethnic background; but the head of the Habsburg royal family, Dr. Otto von Habsburg, reportedly declared all Habsburg marriages “equal.”

 

Queen Sylvia Nagginda of Buganda (Uganda)

Born in the United Kingdom and raised in Uganda, this regal woman married King Kabaka Mutebi II in 1999, after a career working in various U.S. sectors including public relations, international nonprofits, and healthcare and human services. A graduate of New York University and New York Institute of Technology, the queen also advocates for public service, having worked as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Population Fund, and has worked as a consultant to bring resources to Uganda’s entrepreneurs and the business community.

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Make Impromptu Visit to Ireland

IRISH JAUNT: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made an impromptu visit to Northern Ireland on Friday.
The engaged couple traveled to Belfast where they met with teens and children from Amazing the Space, a youth-led initiative. The program, launched by Prince Harry last September, promotes young people as ambassadors of peace. They met with members of the organization at the Eikon Exhibition Centre and spoke with students. They also took in a tour of The Crown Liquor Saloon, a former gin palace now run by The National Trust, and the Titanic Belfast, a visitor attraction where the RMS Titanic was built.
Markle channeled inspiration from the colors of the Irish flag wearing a Mackage coat, Victoria Beckham knit top and Greta Constantine skirt in green and white hues. She accessorized her look with a Charlotte Elizabeth tote and Jimmy Choo heels.

This £30 ring keeps selling out because of Meghan Markle

And you can finally order it again

Getty Images

You just can’t argue with the Meghan Markle effect. Before she got engaged, she wore and posted a ring on her Instagram feed, and it’s been sold out ever since. Until now.

The intricate design is by American brand BaubleBar, and comes at the bargainous price of $ 42, which is roughly around £30.

We can see why Meghan picked the ring too, as she loves the outdoors, and the design is inspired by nature, featuring crystal covered vines that delicately wrap around the hand.

 

Shop now: Peacemaker ring for around £30 from BaubleBar

The ring keeps selling out as a result of Meghan posting it on her now-deleted Instagram feed, but you can pre-order yours now. It only comes in two sizes but is adjustable.

The brand also delivers to the UK though you may need to pay some extra charges on top, but it’s arguably worth it.

British Politician’s Girlfriend Sent Racist Texts About Meghan Markle

Henry Bolton, a British politician, is in hot water after his girlfriend, Jo Marney, made racist remarks about Meghan Markle.

Text messages obtained by The Mail on Sunday, on Sunday, January 14, reveal that the former model reportedly said that Prince Harry’s “black American” fianceé will “taint” the royal family with “her seed” and pave the way for a “black king.” She also described the former Suits actress as “obsessed with race,” a “dumb little commoner” and a “dumb little ‘actress’ that no one had heard of” with a “tiny brain.”

After the person she was texting called her a racist, Marney responded, “lol so what. Not wanting other races and cultures to invade your own culture doesn’t mean I hate their race. Just means I don’t want their cultures invading mine.”

Marney was immediately suspended from the United Kingdom Independent Party after the story broke.

Bolton, 54, who is in charge of the Ukip, was already facing criticism for his decision to leave the mother of his two children, Tatiana Smurova, for Marney, who he met in December. His new relationship with the 25-year-old has been the subject of scrutiny — and he is slated to attend a meeting to determine his future in the Ukip next Sunday.

Henry Bolton, Meghan Markle, Jo Marney, Racist Comments

In a statement to The Mail, Marney apologized and claimed her comments had been taken out of context, saying, “No offense was intended and, again, I apologize unreservedly for any such offense or hurt that my messages have caused to members of the public, members of Ukip, my friends, family and loved ones.”

This is not the first time Markle, who is biracial, has been on the receiving end of racism. In November 2016, shortly after they began dating, Prince Harry instructed Kensington Palace to issue a strongly worded statement in regards to a “wave of abuse and harassment,” that stated, “It is not right that a few months into a relationship with [Prince Harry] that Ms. Markle should be subjected to such a storm. He knows commentators will say this is ‘the price she has to pay’ and that ‘this is all part of the game.’ He strongly disagrees. This is not a game — it is her life and his.”

Harry and Markle announced their engagement at the end of November 2017 and plan to wed at Windsor Castle in May.

Meghan Markle just wore a £45 M&S jumper and we love her for it

Selling out fast

Don’t you just love how down to earth Meghan Markle is? We were already pretty excited to hear she and Harry flew economy for New Year’s Eve (imagine!) and now she’s gone one step further by championing arguably the most British brand on the high street: M&S.

meghan markle

The future Royal donned a cosy black jumper to visit a radio in Brixton, and believe it or not, it’s still available to buy online, though we can’t expect that to last, so buy it now or regret it later.

The roll neck jumper features bell sleeves and a classic crew neck and is a snap at just £45. It also comes in red, which is in the sale for just £21.

Granted, she did team the knitwear with designer items (Burberry trousers and a Smythe coat), but the point is she’s embracing the high street, just like the Duchess of Cambridge.

Expect M&S sales to sky rocket.

Meghan Markle just broke one of the Queen’s royal fashion rules

But all for a very good reason…

Meghan Markle

A Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wedding is fast-approaching, with Kensington Palace announcing that the couple are set to wed at Windsor Castle in May 2018.

With the royal couple’s nuptials in sight, many have been wondering what we can expect on the big day – from potential celebrity guests to Prince Harry’s choice of best man – spoiler alert – it might not be Prince William.

One of the main questions however is who will be Meghan Markle’s wedding dress designer, with the actress’ most recent photos adding fuel to the fire.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle released their official engagement portraits yesterday, and the 36-year-old Suits actress surprised us all by breaking one of the Queen’s royal fashion rules, opting to wear a sheer dress by Ralph & Russo.

With this in mind people are starting to wonder whether the Canadian actress’ wedding dress may be more risqué than your average royal.

The modern look has certainly gone down well with the public, with Kensington Palace tweeting Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s response to their photo reception.

‘The couple are so grateful for the warm and generous messages they have received during such a happy time in their lives,’ the palace tweeted before adding, ‘As a way to say thank you, they have decided to share this candid photograph from the day of their portrait sittings directly with all of you.’

We cannot get enough of these two.

Meghan Markle Joins Royal Family Christmas Celebrations

NEW TRADITIONS: Meghan Markle is spending her first Christmas with the British royals after she became engaged to Prince Harry in November.
Markle joined members of the royal family, including Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at Sandringham, the Queen’s country home in Norfolk.
The family attended the traditional Christmas Day church service on the estate and chatted with members of the public who also attended.
As per tradition on the evening before, the family gathered for afternoon tea, followed by a black-tie dinner and the opening of presents.
On Monday, Markle arrived on Prince Harry’s arm wearing by the Canadian label Sentaler. She paired it with a velvet dress, tan suede boots by Stuart Weitzman, a Chloe ‘Pixie’ bag and a hat in the same shade. She was joined by the Duchess, who wore a black fur hat and a plaid coat by Miu Miu.
British media reports also pointed out that Prince Harry is once again breaking with tradition, as in the past royal partners had to wait until they were married before joining the family’s Christmas celebrations.
Following the announcement of their engagement last month, the couple attended their first official

Meghan Markle Wore 3 Trends in Her Official Engagement Photos With Harry

In the latest Prince Harry and Meghan Markle news, Kensington Palace has released the pair’s official engagement portraits. The shots were taken by Alex Lubomirski and they are stunning, to say the least. The happy couple’s photos were taken earlier this week at Frogmore House in Windsor (the town that they’ll marry in on May 19), and while we only see a glimpse of a cream sweater that Markle is wearing in one of the photos, the other two are clear indicators that Markle is very into the tastefully-sheer trend.

Just yesterday, for the Queen’s annual pre-Christmas lunch, Markle donned a black Self-Portrait dress with a sheer-lace bodice. In the portraits, Markle also chose a sheer-topped dress. The gown, by London-based designers Ralph & Russo, features metallic embellishments and a playful fringed skirt, which are two other trends (metallics and fringe) that are currently going strong. The glamorous yet tasteful look pretty much solidifies that the sheer trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, given Markle’s newfound sartorial influence.

See the gorgeous photos below!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have ‘profound sense of commitment’ to each other

By Simon Perry

From the Editors of PEOPLE

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are showing a “profound sense of commitment” to each other and to marrying in the Church of England, the Archbishop of Canterbury has said.

Most Revd and Rt Hon Justin Welby, who was named the Archbishop of Canterbury in 2013, has met Harry several times and says that the couple is not going through with a grand religious service out of a sense of tradition.

“I am very, very sure after conversations that this is no tick-box exercise of ‘We ought to get married in church,’ ” he told BBC Radio Four’s Today program. “There is a profound sense of commitment, of seriousness both about faith and about their lives together which is quite inspirational.”

Meghan will be baptised and confirmed in the Church of England before her May wedding.

Speaking of the wedding, Welby said: “Of course it’s important because people will look at it and they’ll see a model of how two people commit their lives to one another before God, in the presence of millions of people.

“That’s going to be wonderful, it’s always a beautiful moment.

“Every wedding is profoundly beautiful.”

The one thing Prince Harry is said to have given up for Meghan Markle

It’s give and take, guys

From the editors of LOOK

There’s been an awful lot of talk about how Meghan Markle’s life is going to change now that she’s set to join the royal family. The 36-year-old has had to quit Suits, the American TV show that found her fame as an actress, move to the UK and even undergo training for a possible hostage situation.

But has anybody thought about what Prince Harry might have to give up? Relationships are all about compromise, after all.

According to recent reports, Hazza is going to change something important for his bride-to-be.

Yup. The prince is said to be putting his smoking days behind him – great news for his health, and for his marriage.

Rex

Harry has previously been pictured a number of times with a cigarette in his hand, whilst out with friends.

Now though, the Mail on Sunday reports that the 33-year-old is ready to be a little more health-conscious – just like his fiancée – quitting the habit for good.

A friend of the couple reportedly told the newspaper: ‘Harry has promised no smoking at all at home. It’s not nice for Meghan as a non-smoker. So there’s no more hanging out of the window for a quick puff.

‘Harry has quit for Meghan.’

So, there you have it.

We think we might love them a little more now…

Now There’s Only One Way to Get the Sold-Out Bag Meghan Markle Made Famous

In case you were wondering how influential Meghan Markle’s style is, let’s review the numbers. Earlier this month, Markle made her first royal appearance since the engagement announcement carrying a bag by Edinbugh-based brand Strathberry. According to the label, the bag sold out in 11 minutes across all international retailers, and resulted in a 5000% traffic increase on Strathberry’s website. Impressive right?

Now, the brand is taking its newfound attention and doing something to give back. Strathberry is auctioning off the last currently available bag to benefit the same charity Markle and Prince Harry were promoting that day: the Terrence Higgings Trust, which advocates for equality and justice for people living with HIV and AIDS. The auction begins today at 3 p.m. EST and runs through Sunday, December 17 and you can make bids on the brand’s website

If you’re willing to wait, however, Strathberry is doing another round of production for the bag soon—keep your eyes peeled. 

Scroll down to see how Meghan Markle styled her Strathberry tote for her first official royal appearance.

Upcoming Member of the Royal Family, Meghan Markle, Was Also an Entrepreneur

Since the announcement of her engagement to British royal family member and unlikely heir to the throne—he’s sixth in line—Prince Harry, the microscope has been on Meghan Markle.

Every detail is being inspected about her life including her family life. She is the product of a white father and black mother—a social worker who lives in the mostly African American L.A. suburb of View Park-Windsor Hills (incidentally, one of the wealthiest black suburbs in the country).

(Meghan Markle. Image: Flickr/Genevieve)

 

In addition to her work as an actress, The Atlantic reports that Markle has been involved in several humanitarian efforts. She was a woman’s advocate at the United Nations and a global ambassador for World Vision.

Her Internet Entrepreneurial Endeavor

 

The soon-to-be royal was also an entrepreneur just like so many other millennials of color. She launched a lifestyle and wellness site; thetig.com. She recently shut the site down; however, using the internet archive site, The Wayback Machine, you can take a look at the content on the site to see what it was all about.

The site features fairly lightweight subject matter with articles such as “10 Reasons to Drink Kombucha,” “Chic New York Boutiques,” and “Tig Talks,”—which are interviews with influential people including Serena Williams.

 

(Image of Markle from her archived site)

 

But she gets serious, as well. In one post, “More Than an Other,” published March 2, 2016, she weighs in on being biracial:

What are you?’ A question I get asked every week of my life, often every day. ‘Well,’ I say, as I begin the verbal dance I know all too well. ‘I’m an actress, a writer, the Editor-in-Chief of my lifestyle brand The Tig, a pretty good cook and a firm believer in handwritten notes.’ A mouthful, yes, but one that paints a pretty solid picture of who I am. But here’s what happens: they smile and nod politely, maybe even chuckle, before getting to their point, ‘Right, but what are you? Where are your parents from?’ I knew it was coming, I always do. While I could say Pennsylvania and Ohio, and continue this proverbial two-step, I instead give them what they’re after: ‘My dad is Caucasian and my mom is African American. I’m half black and half white.’

To describe something as being black and white means it is clearly defined. Yet when your ethnicity is black and white, the dichotomy is not that clear. In fact, it creates a grey area. Being biracial paints a blurred line that is equal parts staggering and illuminating. When I was asked by ELLE to share my story, I’ll be honest, I was scared. It’s easy to talk about which make-up I prefer, my favourite scene I’ve filmed, the rigmarole of ‘a day in the life’ and how much green juice I consume before a requisite Pilates class. And while I have dipped my toes into this on thetig.com, sharing small vignettes of my experiences as a biracial woman, today I am choosing to be braver, to go a bit deeper, and to share a much larger picture of that with you.

She goes on in the piece to discuss her mother being mistaken for her nanny in affluent areas of Los Angeles; a white dorm mate in school who assumed her parents weren’t together; and her difficulty getting acting jobs because, “I wasn’t black enough for the black roles and I wasn’t white enough for the white ones, leaving me somewhere in the middle as the ethnic chameleon who couldn’t book a job.”

Markle sums up her feelings as, “Just as black and white, when mixed, make grey, in many ways that’s what it did to my self-identity: it created a murky area of who I was, a haze around how people connected with me. I was grey. And who wants to be this indifferent colour, devoid of depth and stuck in the middle?”

It seems that Markle actually did a lot of the writing herself, signing off posts as “MM.” In what ostensibly looks to be the site’s first-ever post, “Welcome to the Tig” she explains the purpose of the blog:

“Cheers to frolicking, and revelry, to badass ladies & gents who inspire change, to finding the beauty in the unexpected, to sharing ideas, supporting the silliness, eating delicious food, living a life of wanderlust, and taking it all in—with class, unrelenting splendor, and a sense of humor. Cheers to an inspired lifestyle.”

Forget her ethnicity for a second: Could Markle be the first internet entrepreneur and blogger to ever marry into the royal family?

Thanks to Meghan Markle, Sales for This Item Have Increased by 1000%

It was just officially announced today that actress and activist Meghan Markle is engaged to Prince Harry, but her influence in the fashion world has already begun. It’s no secret that everything Markle’s future sister-in-law Kate Middleton touches (as in, wears) turns to sold-out gold, so it’s no surprise that the world has already become acutely interested in what Markle wears, especially since she made her public debut with Prince Harry in September at the Invictus Games in Canada. Case in point, Harper’s Bazaar UK just reported that at that event, Markle wore a pair of round sunglasses by Finlay & Co. (as pictured above), a London-based eyewear brand. Lo and behold, the brand just divulged that since Markle wore its Percy sunglasses, they’ve seen sales increase by a whopping 1000%.

While this is certainly an early indicator of Markle’s sartorial influence, it doesn’t hurt that the $ 180 round shades are as timeless, versatile, and flattering as they come. It also comes as no surprise that the sunglasses are currently out of stock until January 31, 2018, but luckily, they’re available in five other equally versatile color options.

Meghan Markle just took a big step towards becoming a member of the royal family

Do we hear wedding bells?

prince harry and meghan markle wedding

From the editors of People
Words by Monique Jessen

Meghan Markle arrived in London this week, and there’s only one place she’s staying — with Prince Harry at the palace.

Markle, who reportedly just wrapped her last season on Suits, has already semi-immersed herself into London life during many under-the-radar trips to the capital. And she is now preparing for a more permanent move across the pond.

‘Harry has made no secret of the fact that he wants to marry her,’ a source tells People. ‘She is the one.’

During the last year, Markle has been spotted walking around Prince Harry’s neighbourhood in Kensington, carrying Whole Foods shopping bags (the health food store is a short stroll from Harry’s cottage), picking up flowers and visiting a spa in Soho on the eve of Pippa Middleton’s wedding. But it was an invite to Buckingham Palace for tea with the Queen last month that is most indicative of how serious things are between the two.

While their relationship has been moving along very quickly behind the scenes (they even chose their first Christmas tree together last December), the first public show of affection between the royal couple was at the Invictus Games in Toronto in September, when the two walked hand-in-hand into the wheelchair tennis event. A few days later, Harry was photographed kissing Markle when he joined her and her mother, Doria Ragland, in a private box during the event’s closing ceremony.

On Markle’s part, she has not shied away from expressing her feelings towards Harry, telling Vanity Fair in their October issue: ‘We’re two people who are really happy and in love.’

Hinting at the pressures they might one day face, she said: ‘I’m sure there will be a time when we will have to come forward and present ourselves and have stories to tell but I hope what people will understand is that this is our time.’

Markle will live with Harry at his two-bedroom Nottingham Cottage in the grounds of Kensington Palace, where staff already know Markle. In a similar fashion, Prince William and Kate Middleton lived together at St. Andrews university and then at a secluded farmhouse in North Wales briefly before they wed in April 2011. There has been speculation that one day Harry will move into Apartment 1 at the palace which has 21 rooms and is currently the home of the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester.

While Meghan prepares to say goodbye to her chic one-bedroom apartment in Toronto (including potentially relocating her beloved dogs Bogart and Guy), Harry has been making subtle changes at home in order to make it more girlfriend-friendly. ‘It’s not a question of if she’s moving in,’ says the insider, ‘it’s just a matter of when.’

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Will Wed in the Summer

Meghan Markle finished filming her final episode of Suits in Toronto on November 17. Now on to her next job: planning a royal a wedding. 

Though the 36-year-old actress and Prince Harry, who commissioned a ring for Markle using diamonds from a brooch that once belonged to his mom, Princess Diana, have yet to announce their engagement, a date has been set. “It will definitely be a summer wedding,” a source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly.

Markle, who just moved out of her Toronto apartment, will reside in Harry’s two-bedroom Nottingham Cottage, already outfitted with the plants and candles she started bringing in to decorate the place last spring. “There are are no plans for them to live separately,” a friend of Markle’s tells the magazine. “Meghan will move right in.”

Her future brother-and-sister-in-law, Prince William and Duchess Kate, are a short walk away if she has any questions. “You can’t trust anyone more than family,” a source tells Us, “so it’s no surprise Harry wants them to help make this transition easy for Meghan.”

Us Weekly Meghan Markle cover

Expect an engagement announcement from Markle and Harry, 33, early in the new year. An insider says the official proclamation — including a photo call at Kensington Palace and a syndicated TV interview — “will likely be some time in January. It gives Meghan some to get settled and will be a great start to 2018.”

By late June, says another source, Markle —  previously wed to talent manager Trevor Engelson from to 2011 to 2013 — will become Harry’s bride. “With Suits over, so so is her life in Toronto,” says a friend of Markle’s. “But she’s really excited about starting a new chapter with Harry.”

Why Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will probably get married at this time

Pencil it into your diaries

prince harry and meghan markle wedding

From the Editors of InStyleUK
Words by Jennifer Davis

Will royal wedding bells be ringing soon? All signs point to yes. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have had several important milestones lately, including their first public appearance at the Invictus Games in Toronto, but the most telling indication that an engagement announcement is forthcoming is a recent meeting with Queen Elizabeth herself.

According to the Daily Mail, the Suits actress met with Her Majesty on Thursday, two days after she returned from her extended summer trip to Scotland. Since Prince Harry is fifth in line to the throne, he must get the Queen’s approval to marry, and it seems like she’s received the official royal thumbs up.

Markle has already been introduced to his father Prince Charles and step-mother the Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, as well as brother Prince William and Duchess Kate, so the meeting with the Queen was the final royal approval the 33-year-old Prince needed. 

With all the royals aligned, it seems like they’ve already begun discussing a wedding date. “William and Kate are expecting their third baby mid April, and Harry won’t want to overshadow the birth of another prince or princess, and, of course, the Duchess will need some time to recover before she is at such a high-profile event,” a source told Vanity Fair. “The most likely date is early summer 2018, which neatly ties in with Harry and Meghan’s second anniversary.”

Markle recently told the producers of the USA show Suits that she won’t be returning for another season, which has everyone believing that they may already be engaged. We’ll be waiting with bated breath for the official announcement.

How exactly would Meghan Markle define her relationship with Prince Harry? “We’re two people who are really happy and in love. We were very quietly dating for six months before it became news, and I was working during that whole time, and the only thing that changed was people’s perception,” she says. “Nothing about me changed. I’m still the same person that I am, and I’ve never defined myself by my relationship.”

Meghan Markle used Princess Diana’s make-up artist for her latest photoshoot

And it’s beautiful

Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde

Make-up artist Mary Greenwell has worked with a plethora of famous faces in the fashion industry, from Naomi Campbell to Cindy Crawford, but many will recognise her as the beauty genius behind some of Princess Diana’s most iconic looks. The revered make-up artist famously worked with the late royal when she graced Vogue and Vanity Fair, and recently revealed exactly why Diana decided to stop wearing her signature blue eyeliner.

And it seems that Greenwell’s work with the royal family continues, as it was revealed that she worked with none other than Meghan Markle for her latest cover shoot.

The Suits star features on the cover of Vanity Fair‘s October issue, where Meghan opened up about her relationship with Diana’s son, Prince Harry, for the first time.

Meghan had admitted she was excited to work with photographer Peter Lindbergh for the shoot because he ‘rarely retouches, and he believes in such little make-up’, making Greenwell – who is famed for ability to bring out Princess Diana’s natural beauty – the perfect fit.

A post shared by Meghan Markle (@meghanmarkle) on

In an Instagram post, Greenwell wrote: ‘Beautiful Meghan Markel for@vanityfair with @therealpeterlindbergh and@jdiehlpoynter Such a lovely day.’

The interview attracted criticism from Meghan’s friend, Priyanka Chopra, for being ‘sexist’, but fans of the couple were bowled over with Meghan’s candidness considering that up until now the pair have been very private about their relationship.

Talking about dating a royal, Meghan said: ‘It has its challenges, and it comes in waves—some days it can feel more challenging than others.

‘And right out of the gate it was surprising the way things changed. But I still have this support system all around me, and, of course, my boyfriend’s support.’

Teamed with the fact that they are set to make their first public appearance together at the Invictus Games on September 23rd, speculation is mounting that Meghan and Harry will be engaged before the year is out.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Head to Africa — Where William Proposed to Kate!

And a very happy birthday to you, Meghan Markle!

The Suits actress was spotted with her boyfriend of nearly a year, Prince Harry, heading off to Africa for a safari vacation on her 36th birthday, according to The Sun.

Wearing matching baseball caps and with their arms around one another, Harry and Markle walked across the airport tarmac carrying their bags and big smiles on their faces. Markle also carried what looks to be a framed photo covered in bubble wrap.

“Harry has been planning this holiday for a long time,” a source told The Sun, who obtained the photos, of the birthday getaway. “He’s made the trip incredibly romantic. They’ll go on boats across the lake, walk in the bush at dawn and camp under the stars.”

The destination is sure to raise some questions — after all, Africa is where Prince William took the then-Kate Middleton to pop the question seven years ago.

“Who knows what will happen when they’re watching a sensational African sunset together?” the source said. “Maybe he’ll get down on one knee. Harry regards Africa as his spiritual home and has often talked of how he can get away from it all there.”

Harry has often spoken about his love for Africa, calling it the place where “I feel more like myself than anywhere in the world.”

“Obviously he wants to show Meghan what an amazing place it is and create new memories together,” the source told The Sun. “Harry’s done a lot of conservation work in Africa with endangered el­e­phants and black rhinos and he’ll show them to the woman he wants to marry.”
