Back in February, Meghan Markle said during her appearance at the Royal Foundation Forum that women’s empowerment would be her focus as a royal—after the wedding, of course. “So yeah, I guess we wait a couple months and then we can hit the ground running,” she said. The ceremony is now done, along with Markle’s first event as a full-fledged member of the family with Prince Harry, which happened Tuesday.
Markle is now set to go on her honeymoon, but shortly after that, expect to see the Duchess of Sussex out on multiple solo events and announcing her own project she’s already working on, royal expert and ABC News royal contributor Omid Scobie told ELLE.com.
“Meghan is keen to start working as soon as they return from honeymoon,” Scobie said. “She has been quietly working on a project that will be announced later this year. Meghan’s first solo engagements will see her visiting a number of small charities and grass roots organizations across the UK as she continues to decide what her first patronage will be. We know that she’s a keen feminist, it’s written in her official bio on the official Royal Family website—a first!—and she’s interested in issues that affect youth in the UK, such as gang culture. It will be exciting to see how she uses this very influential platform she now stands on.” Continue reading What Meghan Markle’s First Solo Events as a Royal Will Be

Meghan Markle may now be officially known as the Duchess of Sussex, but to her friends, she’s still just “Meg.”
Makeup artist Daniel Martin — the creative consultant for Honest Beauty, Dior Beauty brand ambassador and a longtime friend of Meghan’s who helped her achieve the perfect beauty look for her wedding day — tells PEOPLE that even he was confused as to what to call her after she was married to Prince Harry.
“I asked her that. ‘Do I bow to you? I don’t want to disrespect you, but I’ve known for almost ten years. What’s up?’” he recalls. “She started laughing and she said, ‘I’m always going to be Meg. Meg.’”
Martin added, “But next time I see them I will be respectful and know my protocol. But Meg is always going to be Meg, that’s how it is!”
Posted on Author MaryComments Off on The Untold Story of Meghan Markle’s Wedding Dress
With so much changing in Meghan Markle’s life after Prince Harry proposed in November 2017, the now-Duchess of Sussex didn’t get a chance to begin planning the breathtaking bridal gown she wore on her wedding day until a month after her engagement. Busy touring the U.K. with Harry for royal engagements, taking private meetings at Kensington Palace, and unpacking the last of her things from her Toronto move, Markle needed a mid-December reminder from her best friend and bridal expert Jessica Mulroney, who told the bride-to-be during a phone call that the search for a royal wedding dress designer needed to begin “ASAP.”
Citing just a dozen “bridal inspo” pics saved to her phone from Instagram, Pinterest, and fashion websites, Markle knew exactly what she was looking for—modern, elegant, timeless, and appropriate. With the help of Mulroney, Markle worked her way through a list of potential designers, many of whom had submitted sketches to her office at Kensington Palace. “Designers from every big name in fashion you can think of were on that first list,” a source close to Markle tells BAZAAR.com. “Burberry, Ralph and Russo, Erdem, Roland Mouret, Stella [McCartney].” Continue reading The Untold Story of Meghan Markle’s Wedding Dress
Posted on Author MaryComments Off on Meghan Markle Chooses Her First Royal Job
She has only been a member of what Prince Philip calls “the Firm” for three days, but Meghan Markle is already preparing for her role as a working royal.
Sources at the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, of which Harry is the president, have told Vanity Fair that Meghan plans to start working with the organization imminently. “It’s going to be one of the first official roles Meghan takes on,” the source said. “There have already been talks, and when Meghan was asked when she wanted to get involved she replied ‘May 20.’”
The role would fit with the couple’s ambitions to focus their efforts within the Commonwealth countries and realms, where they would particularly like to put the spotlight on young people. The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust works to provide small loans and funding to young people throughout the Commonwealth who are leading their own nonprofits or otherwise embarking on projects that serve the greater good.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made their first appearance as a married couple in honor of Prince Charles’ 70th birthday.
And Meghan is in full royal mode now.

She accessorized her look with Tamara Mellon’s Siren pump in Blush.
The garden party at Buckingham Palace, which honors Charles’ patronages, military affiliations and charities, also paid tribute to first responders of the terrorist attack at Ariana Grande’s Manchester concert in May 2017.

Posted on Author KierraComments Off on Photos: The Royal Wedding of Prince Harry And Meghan Markle
Hello Everyone! Today was the big day! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are officially husband and wife! The wedding was absolutely wonderful and so emotional. Meghan looked stunning as we all knew she would. At the time of writing this, post wedding festivities are under way! Of course Mary and I are busy adding tons of photos and will continue to add photos over the next couple of days, but before we get to those, here are some highlights from the day!
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are now to be referred to as The Duke and The Duchess of Sussex.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle chose Cleave and Company to make their Wedding rings. Meghan’s ring has been fashioned from a piece of Welsh Gold, gifted by Her Majesty The Queen. Prince Harry’s ring is a Platinum Band with a textured finish.
Meghan’s wedding dress has been designed by the acclaimed British designer, Clare Waight Keller. Ms. Waight Keller last year became the first female Artistic Director at the historic French fashion house Givenchy. Ms. Markle expressed the wish of having all 53 countries of the Commonwealth with her on her journey through the ceremony. Ms. Waight Keller designed a veil representing the distinctive flora of each Commonwealth country united in one spectacular floral composition. The veil is held in place by Queen Mary’s diamond bandeau tiara, lent to Ms. Markle by The Queen. The diamond bandeau is English and was made in 1932, with the entre brooch dating from 1893.
The Prince of Wales accompanied Ms. Meghan Markle down the aisle of the Quire of St George’s Chapel today.
Her Majesty The Queen is giving a Lunchtime Reception at St George’s Hall in Windsor Castle for around 600 guests drawn from the Wedding Service congregation.
The wedding cake is to be served at the Reception. It was designed by Claire Ptak and features elderflower syrup made at The Queen’s residence in Sandringham from the estate’s own elderflower trees, as well as a light sponge cake uniquely formulated for the couple. A filling made from Amalfi lemon curd and elderflower buttercream ties all the elements together. The cake is decorated with Swiss meringue buttercream and 150 fresh flowers, mainly British, and in season, including peonies and roses.
Sir Elton John has performed at the lunchtime reception for the newlyweds, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex departed Windsor Castle for a reception hosted by The Prince of Wales at Frogmore House, in a silver blue Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero. This vehicle was originally manufactured in 1968, and has since been converted to electric power.
Meghan wore Stella McCartney for her second gown, and a blue ring from Princess Diana’s collection.
