Several members of the team that kept Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle looking royally ready throughout her time with the royal family and official royal appearances.
London-based hairstylist George Northwood announced via Instagram just days ago that he was the one who put together many of Markle’s signature looks, including her wedding reception hair and the style she wore when she returned from maternity leave as well as the sleek look in the Sussex Recent viral photo which delighted many fans.
“It has been an enormous privilege and a lot of fun” working with the duke and duchess for two years, Northwood wrote on his Instagram post where he added six photos of Markle in styles that he created for her.
“I have enjoyed every minute collaborating with this amazing couple who not only champion small businesses but have taught me so much about diversity, equality and the importance of good mental health,” Northwood added. “Here are a few of their many wonderful moments that I was honoured to be a part of.”
“I think I met her in February, around Valentine’s Day 2018. I was a bit worked up before hand and then, as soon as I met her, she was just like my California girl clients,” Northwood told the publication. “She said, ‘I’m a Cali girl’, and I just said, ‘One of my favourites then.’ We hit it off – we immediately spoke the same language.”
“She has a real sense of style and she wanted to look approachable, even though she was a princess,” he said. “She was a very modern princess, the sort of princess we can relate to and aspire to, and the hair just fell into that.”
Sarah Chapman, the facialist behind the line Skinesis is also the one behind some of Meghan’s highly photographed glory. Chapman called it an honor to have spent time with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
“Through my work I am fortunate to meet some incredible, interesting and inspirational people and over the past 2 ½ years I feel honoured to have spent much time with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
“With Meghan, what began as a client relationship quickly turned into a dear friendship and she welcomed me into their lives. I feel very grateful to be a small part of their journey observing the passion for everything they do and compassion for the causes and people they meet, but also to witness the moments other people don’t see. Who they are at home, as parents, as partners, and friends, the kind and very down to earth people they are when no one is watching.”
“Every day we learn something new and I have been taught so much by them, and I always leave our time together feeling fulfilled and inspired to help people in any small ways I can.
“I am happy to share with fond memories some of these glowing skin moments I helped create for Meghan with our natural approach to beauty and look forward to many more in the future.
“And to Meghan, Harry and little Archie: sending lots of love and positivity during this transition. I know there will be so many ways you will continue to touch people’s lives and enable positive change and we can’t wait to see what you do next. See you soon and thank you for everything you do.”
