The hilarious way Duchess Meghan’s makeup artist found out she was dating Prince Harry

By Zach Harper

“Your friend is on the paper.”

Daniel Martin was in Greece in 2016 when his husband told him to take a look at the news. He saw Duchess Meghan featured prominently by many publications. But unfortunately, why she was being written about was all Greek to him – and in this case, that’s not just an idiom! “She was literally on the front page of every newspaper in Greece, but everything was in Greek, so I was like, ‘What is going on?’ I didn’t know!” he recently told Into the Gloss.

It turned out the news that Meghan was dating Prince Harry had just broke! The former actress was so tight-lipped about her relationship with Harry that many of her friends were told about it at the same time as the public, when Kensington Palace confirmed the news.

Daniel and Meghan met and began working together when Meghan was starring on legal drama Suits. “When I met her, it was just an instant connection,” he told Into the Gloss. “I knew what she wanted – it was one of those things where, she looked at herself in the mirror and was like, ‘Oh, my God, this is what I always wanted, but I didn’t know how to get there.’ From that experience, we just kept in touch.”

Meghan and Daniel have definitely maintained a strong friendship over the last few years. He recently visited her at Frogmore Cottage, the home she shares with Harry, and where she’s resting ahead of Baby Sussex’s birth.

But that isn’t the only time the two have seen each other over the last year. Daniel attended Meghan’s baby shower in New York City in February, which was planned bySerena Williams, and also stopped by Kensington Palace in January for avocado toast, tea and chocolates.

Meghan is “due any day,” and we bet Daniel can’t wait to meet Baby Sussex!
