Meghan Markle’s friend as well as bridal makeup artist, Daniel Martin, will be opening up about the journey of having one of his besties become royalty overnight — including how he approached the subject of the proper way to address her post-wedding!
The Dior Beauty brand ambassador dished on in which conversation as well as some other happenings from the room where Markle made her final preparations for becoming the Duchess of Sussex on Saturday.
“I asked her in which. ‘Do I bow to you? I don’t want to disrespect you, although I’ve known you for almost 10 years. What’s up?’” Martin told People. “She began laughing as well as she said, ‘I’m always going to be Meg. Meg.’”
“although next time I see them I will be respectful as well as know my protocol,” he added. “although Meg will be always going to be Meg, in which’s how This particular will be!”
Martin also shared fresh details about what went on behind closed doors as Markle prepared to walk down the aisle as well as wed Prince Harry on May 19.
He said in which the former Suits star played chilled, 1950s tunes while getting ready for the ceremony with Martin, her mom, Doria Ragland, hairstylist Serge Normant as well as gown designer Clare Waight Keller.
While the group “caught up” as well as discussed mutual friends, Markle appeared at ease about the drastically life-changing moments ahead of her.
“She didn’t seem nervous,” Martin dished. “She was very cool, she was regular Meghan. I think we were nervous, although we didn’t want to make her nervous so This particular was very chilled. Of course, brides have nerves, although if we didn’t put so much expectation on This particular, This particular wouldn’t have made her nervous. This particular was very even, very easy.”
While Martin said This particular truly sunk in in which Markle was about to get married when she slipped into her dress, “like a glove,” This particular was when they pulled up to Windsor Castle in which the enormity of the nuptials set in.
“Nothing actually hit any of us until we got there as well as we saw the people as well as the magnitude of everything,” he said. “The last thing we said to each some other was, ‘We’ll see you on the some other side.’”
He then saw Markle after the wedding to do touch-ups for the couple’s official wedding portraits.
“in which’s when I began crying,” he said. “This particular was initially [I] was able to be there in person. This particular was almost like she looked at me as well as said, ‘What did you think? How’d This particular go?’ as well as I lost This particular. This particular was so moving as well as so perfect as well as the day couldn’t have been better.”
Martin also posted a sweet tribute to Markle, along with photos showcasing his handiwork, on Instagram on Wednesday.
“My dearest Meghan, thank you via the bottom of my heart for allowing me to be a part of such a memorable day, not only in your life, although in history,” he captioned a slideshow of photos. “This particular was just like old times playing dress up as well as I’m looking forward to our next play dates together. Cheers to love my friend!!! 🥂❤️🎊.”
