Private pictures of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding leaked

Private pictures of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding have leaked online after their official photographer’s computer was hacked.

Snaps taken by aristocrat Alexi Lubomirski have started to appear on sites including Instagram and Twitter, following their wedding at Windsor Castle in May last year.

The incident has caused quite a stir at Kensington Palace, with officials reportedly launching an immediate probe to shut down the wedding pictures leak.

Only three official wedding photographs were released at the time of the wedding (one of which is pictured)

One of the three official wedding photographs release to the public and taken by Alexi Lubomirski. Many more were taken, and some have started being leaked online

He was alerted after his images were stolen by hackers, some of which included those of Harry and Meghan on their wedding day.

Mr Lubomirski also took the couple’s engagement photographs in December 2017. One of which is pictured here

They are said to include some which show Harry, 34, hugging Meghan, 37, with his eyes closed.

She is seen beaming for the camera in the picture.

Buckingham Palace and Mr Lubomirski’s agent have so far declined to comment.

Mr Lubomirski also took the couple’s engagement photographs in December 2017.

At the time, Mr Lubomirski – who has previously worked with photographer Mario Testino, a favourite of Prince William and Princess Diana – described taking the pictures in Berkshire as ‘an incredible honour’.

And when he was announced as the official wedding photographer, said: ‘I could not be more thrilled or honoured to photograph this historic occasion.

‘Having taken Prince Harry and Ms Markle’s engagement photos, it brings me such joy to be able to witness again, the next chapter in this wonderful love story.’

And speaking after the event, he said: ‘It has been an incredible honour and privilege to document The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s inspiring journey of love, hope and family; from the engagement photos, all the way through to the official wedding and family portraits on Saturday. This has been a beautiful chapter in my career and life, that I will happily never forget’.

Another of the three official wedding photographs released to the public. Here the Duke and Duchess were pictured in Green Drawing Room, Windsor Castle with (left-to-right): Back row: Brian Mulroney, Remi Litt, Rylan Litt, Jasper Dyer, Prince George, Ivy Mulroney, John Mulroney Front row: Zalie Warren, Princess Charlotte and Florence van Cutsem

Only three official wedding photographs were eventually released.

The photographer has the title His Serene Highness Prince Alexi Lubomirski.

He is descended from an influential Polish family who received the hereditary title of prince of the Holy Roman Empire from Emperor Ferdinand III in the 17th century.

Mr Lubomirski, who was born in England but now lives in New York, was given his first camera aged 11 by his stepfather.

The hack comes just as Meghan is expected to make her first public appearance following the birth of her son Archie – at Trooping the Colour in London.

It has been suggested the new mother might join her husband Prince Harry and other senior royals including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for the event marking the Queen’s official birthday.

If she does, Meghan will be following the lead of sister-in-law Kate, 36, who made an appearance at last year’s ceremony despite being on maternity leave with Louis.

The Duchess of Sussex carried out her last official engagements in March.

The private hospital where Meghan is believed to have given birth offers new parents a ‘celebration meal’ complete with champagne, lobster and foie gras.

The Duchess of Sussex, 37, was reported to have wanted a home birth after rejecting a stay at the Lindo Wing where the Duchess of Cambridge famously posed with her three newborns.

But more than a week overdue, The Mail was told she was forced to have Baby Sussex in hospital – most likely at The Portland in central London.

The Portland’s childbirth packages start from £15,000 and can cost up to £20,000.

Other famous mothers who have had their babies there include Victoria Beckham, Liz Hurley and Jools Oliver.

Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York also gave birth to Princess Eugenie and Beatrice there.

Staff offer 24-hour room service in their lavish labour suites, which come complete with Molton Brown toiletries and four-poster cots.

New parents are offered a meal to celebrate the safe delivery of their child, with a menu that boasts lobster, oysters, foie gras, champagne and afternoon tea options – all served on silver platters.

Extended stays The Portland can rack up bills of £1,800 a night, a far cry from Frimley Park NHS Hospital in Surrey where Meghan and Harry were rumoured to have gone if her hopes of a home birth were dashed.

Here are photos of the hospital Meghan is believed to have given birth.

Royal Baby: Meghan Markle delivers baby boy

The Duchess of Sussex has given birth to a baby boy with her husband by her side after going into labour this morning.Her husband is thrilled.

It was amazing. Absolutely incredible. I’m so proud of my wife. It’s been the most amazing experience I could ever have possibly imagined.

How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension. But we’re both absolutely thrilled.

We’re both absolutely thrilled and so grateful for all the love and support from everybody out there, it’s been amazing, so we just wanted to share this with everybody.

The name of the baby, which is seventh in line to the throne, will be announced at a later date.

The couple have maintained an element of secrecy around the arrangements for the birth, saying they will share news of their baby’s arrival “once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family”.

Members of the international press have been assembled in Windsor for several weeks awaiting news that the baby is on its way, with American television networks updating their viewers daily.

They will now be joined by excited members of the public and the British media, in the last few hours before the seventh-in-line to the throne is welcomed into the world.

The baby is understood to be around a week overdue, with the Duchess, who is 37, said to be “comfortable and content” as she waited in her new home at Frogmore Cottage with her husband and mother Doria Ragland by her side.

She is reported to have hoped for a home birth, as the couple emphasise their wish for total privacy for their new arrival.

That plan will change as medically necessary, sources have suggested, with overdue babies requiring careful monitoring for the safety of mother and child and contingency plans in place for any intervention needed.

The Duchess is reported to have chosen a female-led team to support her, with the Royal Household doctors on hand to help if necessary.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle planning to temporarily relocate to Africa

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex hope to take a six-month ‘secondment’ to Africa in the next few years, it was revealed last night.

Planning for the move is still in the ‘brainstorming’ stage, it was stressed, and there have been no formal discussions outside the palace walls, but one source described it as a ‘likely scenario’.

The revelation came as Harry joined other members of the Royal Family at church on Easter Sunday, which also marked the Queen’s 93rd birthday.

Reports of Harry and Meghan’s ‘Out of Africa’ project first surfaced yesterday in The Sunday Times, which quoted a source as saying that courtiers had drawn up plans to send the royal ‘rock stars’ abroad ‘for two to three years’, combining their jobs as Commonwealth ambassadors with charity work and a role promoting Britain.

It said the proposal would afford them a break from the divisions that have arisen between Harry and his brother William in recent months, while ‘harnessing’ the Sussexes’ global appeal.

The Daily Mail understands that while there have been tensions between the princes and their wives Kate and Meghan, the idea of a foreign sabbatical is something Harry has wanted to pursue for many years, focusing on issues around conservation, the environment and education.

It was also claimed that plans to make Harry a governor-general in somewhere such as Australia or Canada had already been rejected, but that William and his private secretary, Simon Case, were behind this new scheme to put some distance between himself and the globally popular Sussexes.

‘People are telling William, “Don’t worry. Your influence will grow and Harry’s will fade. This is peak Harry,” ‘ the source told The Sunday Times.

Sources claimed the Sussexes’ advisers are working on Harry and Meghan’s ‘bespoke’ African role with the help of Sir David Manning, a former ambassador to the US, and Lord Geidt, the Queen’s former private secretary who chairs the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust.

Botswana – which Harry has previously described as his ‘second home’ – is one of the countries that has been suggested, as well as Malawi and South Africa.

It would almost certainly be a Commonwealth country as the Queen appointed her grandson one of its youth ambassadors last year and sees him as an important proponent of her legacy.

‘Some early conversations have taken place in a very informal way,’ a source revealed last night.

‘At the moment, this is very speculative. There haven’t been formal conversations with anyone from Commonwealth countries or governments.

But his team are starting to scope out a long-term planning strategy for the Sussexes and there is a good chance this is a scenario that could work.’


‘No baby gifts please’ Meghan Markle tells her fans to give such to charity

 Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have asked fans to stop sending gifts for their new baby and donate to charity instead.

In the second post on their new account, which was launched on Tuesday and already has four million followers.

If you already made a donation, the couple send you their greatest thanks.

If you are thinking about it, they ask that you kindly consider the following organizations they’ve selected.

The pair recommended four charities which fans could support: the Lunchbox Fund, which works to provide a daily meal for impoverished children in South Africa.

Little Village HQ, which provides clothes for children under five; WellChild, which tries to get ill children out of hospital and back home; and Baby2Baby, which tries to provide necessities for children up to 12 years old.

Well the one thing that has been consistent with Meghan is her fashion.Even now that she is pregnant she is still looking so beautiful.

Individual stalkers have increased by 25% since Meghan Markle’s wedding

The Royal family has more stalkers than ever before – with a 25 per cent rise in obsessed individuals since the marriage of Harry and Meghan.

The amount of suspected stalkers since the royal nuptials in May last year has increased from 130 to 160.

And five of the stalkers are of ‘high concern’, as reported by The Sun.


Dai Davies, the former Royal Protection Command chief at Met Police, said: ‘The royals attract people who are fixated — from terrorists to people on the far right.

‘The fact that Harry married a woman of black origin could, in some maniac eyes, give rise to further concern.’

Mr Davies added the couple’s imminent move to their new abode in rural Berkshire could be an issue.

The 160 referrals were made to the Fixated Threat Assessment Centre (FTAC) last year, which is a unit dedicated to identifying threats to the royal family.

Funded by the Home Office and the NHS, the FTAC analyses some 10,000 strange, worrying or threatening communications received by the Royal household each year.

About half are deemed to be low risk and no further action is taken, but the remainder warrant further investigation.

Last year a number of royal stalkers with were being tracked ahead of Harry and Meghan’s wedding.

Prince Harry and Meghan to leave their Sh300M mansion as they struggle to pay for upkeep

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expected to move out of their Cotswolds bolthole within weeks.

The couple took a two-year lease on the £2.5million former farmhouse in a picturesque hamlet in the run-up to their wedding last year and spend most weekends there.

Friends say it gives Harry and Meghan the chance to escape the ‘goldfish bowl’ of royal life at Kensington Palace, where they live in two-bedroom Nottingham Cottage.

It had been anticipated that the couple, who are expecting their first child in April, would keep the house on after moving from London to Frogmore Cottage on the Queen’s Windsor estate this spring.

But the Daily Mail has learnt that the couple will be cancelling the lease early and moving out in March.

Bolthole: Harry and Meghan’s secret £2.5million Oxfordshire mansion where they entertain friends. It boasts four bedrooms and an outhouse with a further two bedrooms for guests

One source suggested yesterday that the sudden move is down to the fact they are struggling to pay for the upkeep of two properties, particularly as the building works on Frogmore Cottage are expected to cost up to £3million.

While taxpayers will shoulder the bulk of the bill, Harry, 34, and Meghan, 37, are having to pay for all the fixtures and fittings themselves.

However, another source insisted that finance was not an issue and suggested that the real reason behind the move was security.

The isolated luxury home, which the Mail has chosen not to identify, is near the trendy private members’ retreat Soho Farmhouse, where many of Meghan’s UK-based friends hang out.

Friends claim that Harry and Meghan enjoy the bolthole because it gives them the chance to escape the ‘goldfish bowl’ of royal life at Kensington Palace

The estate, owned by multi-millionaire Old Etonian Nicholas Johnston, lies eight miles north-east of Chipping Norton and is at the heart of an area described as ‘Poshfordshire’ thanks to its regular celebrity visitors and weekend residents.

Little more than a decade ago, the 18th century listed farmstead comprised a pair of decaying buildings for cattle, along with the unusable stables and barns next door, beside a burnt-out farmhouse. It has since been transformed into a stunning country residence, nestled in a hidden vale.

But the house is not situated on a heavily guarded estate, like Windsor or Sandringham. And while security measures have been put in place, the house is not a permanent royal residence and so not as heavily protected as it could be.

It is understood that locals are less than happy at the attention the couple’s presence has brought and worry about the added strain on local police resources. Costs for guarding the property would be split between the Metropolitan and Thames Valley police forces.

With the couple’s baby due in April, it seems they have decided to up sticks to Windsor entirely. Frogmore Cottage is undergoing massive renovations.

A spokesman declined to discuss plans for the Cotswolds property.


Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will not be attending Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ wedding

She attended Duchess Meghan Markle’s wedding to Prince Harry back in May.

But it’s been reported that the newlyweds will not be returning the favor when Priyanka Chopra marries Nick Jonas later this week.

According to an Us Weekly source, the Duchess will not be travelling to India due to her pregnancy.

‘Meghan will not be going to Priyanka’s wedding, especially now that she’s pregnant,’ offered an insider.

The news comes as the Indian beauty is set to tie-the-knot with her boyfriend of six-months on Sunday in her hometown.

Back in May, Priyanka was there to watch her friend Meghan walk down the aisle in England and marry her prince.

The pair have been friends since January 2016 when they met at the Elle Women in Television event and hit it off from there.

‘Priyanka is unbelievable,’ Meghan told the Press Trust Of India in July that same year.

‘She has become a really good friend. Elle Magazine in the US hosted a dinner celebrating Women in TV, and we met that night – turns out she really likes Suits.’

The former actress added that they had hit it off straight away.

‘You know when you meet someone and you just click? It was just an easy, natural progression. We’ve managed to keep in touch via email and text, and try to see each other whenever we’re both in the same town.’

In November 2016, Priyanaka shared a photo of them enjoying a drink out in LA, captioning the shot: ‘Girls just wanna have fun…’

Even more, the two have been friends for almost a decade.

‘Perhaps it’d be easier if I was dead’: Heartbroken Thomas Markle says his daughter is ignoring him and has changed all her numbers


When Meghan Markle celebrates her 37th birthday next Saturday, she will doubtless be showered with love and gifts from adoring husband Prince Harry and receive the warmest of greetings from other members of the Royal Family, including the Queen.

But 5,495 miles away in Mexico, her devastated father will spend the day nursing a broken heart.

For Thomas Markle today claims in The Mail on Sunday that Meghan has cruelly excised him from her life – and he fears he may never see any children that she and Harry might have.

When Meghan Markle celebrates her 37th birthday next Saturday, she will doubtless be showered with love and gifts from adoring husband Prince Harry and receive the warmest of greetings from other members of the Royal Family, including the Queen.

But 5,495 miles away in Mexico, her devastated father will spend the day nursing a broken heart.

For Thomas Markle today claims in The Mail on Sunday that Meghan has cruelly excised him from her life – and he fears he may never see any children that she and Harry might have.

‘I’m really hurt that she’s cut me off completely. I used to have a phone number and text number for her personal aides at the Palace, but after I said a few critical words about the Royal Family changing Meghan, they cut me off.

‘Those numbers were disconnected, they no longer work. I have no way of contacting my daughter,’ he says.

‘It’s her birthday on August 4 and I want to send her a card. But if I send a birthday card to Kensington Palace, or wherever she’s living now, it’ll just be one among thousands. She’ll probably never see it.

‘I thought about sending it by Priority Mail Express, but the Palace would probably just soak it in water for three days to make sure it doesn’t explode.’


World celebrates Mandela’s 100th birthday five years after his death

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was and is still a world wide icon for his tireless efforts in fighting apartheid in South Africa.

The humble man born in July 18, 1918  and sadly breathed his last in December 5, 2013. Five years on he is still celebrated for his efforts to better South Africa.

That zeal and effort saw him jailed for 27 years from November 1962 until February 1990.


Dr Auma Obama: Sauti Kuu Foundation to open sports and resource centre in Siaya

Well as the world celebrates Mandela’s 100th birthday in his absence, SA President Cyril Ramaphosa said he would mark “Mandela 100” by donating half his salary to charity to honour “the great sacrifices he made and his tireless commitment to improving the lives of the most vulnerable.”

Former US President Barrack Obama and his wife Michelle Obama are in South Africa and in his speech on Tuesday, Obama said

“Let me tell you what I believe. I believe in Nelson Mandela’s vision, I believe in a vision shared by Gandhi and King, and Abraham Lincoln, I believe in a vision of equality and justice and freedom and multi-racial democracy built on the premise that all people are created equal and are endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights.”

His lecture, titled “Renewing the Mandela legacy and promoting active citizenship in a changing world,” tracked the transformation of the world, particularly in terms of race relations and human rights, over the past 100 years.

He went on to urge people to follow Madiba’s example

“We have to follow Madiba’s example of persistence and hope,it’s tempting right now to give in to cynicism. To believe that recent shifts in global politics are too powerful to push back. That the pendulum has swung permanently.


Just as people spoke about the triumph of democracy in the ’90s, now you’re hearing people talk about the end of democracy and the triumph of tribalism and the strong man. We have to resist that cynicism, because we’ve been through darker times.”

Just recently, a Nelson Mandela exhibition was opened to celebrate the late apartheid leader in a function attended by Prince Harry and the wife Meghan Markle.

The event was held at Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall in London and in attendance was Nelson Mandela’s grand daughter Zamaswazi Dlamini-Mandela.

The Duchess of Sussex and her husband the Duke of Sussex going to pay tribute to Nelson Mandela’s life at new London exhibition dedicated to his life.

The Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibition celebrates Mandela’s life. It is jointly curated by the Apartheid Museum in South Africa, the British Anti-Apartheid Movement Archives and the Southbank Centre.

This is not the first time the Royal Family is celebrating Mandela. In 2015, Prince Harry visited the archives at the Nelson Mandela Foundation Centre of Memory in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Check out Meghan Markle’s wardrobe evolution since getting married

Meghan Markle joined the Royal family officially in May 2018 after marring Prince Harry in a colourful ceremony that attracted world wide attention.

The wedding was more like a scene from a fairy tale with Meghan rocking an elegant white dress with an open bateau neckline was by British designer Clare Waight Keller, the first female artistic director for the Givenchy fashion house. The 16-foot-long veil was held in place by a diamond bandeau tiara lent to her by the Queen.

Since then Meghan’s fashion sense has had to change from the way she dresses to what she eats and the shoes she wears given that the queen does not like wedges and garlic is not permitted in any food in the palace.

From the simple girl she was 10 or 15 years ago, Meghan’s wardrobe has revolutionized to a more sophisticated and classy look after all all eyes are on her waiting for the slightest blunder.

Meghan Markle’s ex Cory to be a dad after girlfriend confirms pregnancy

Meghan Markle’s ex-boyfriend Cory Vitiello is a happy man after it emerged his girlfriend Martina Sorbara is expectant with their first child.

Meghan recently tied the knot with Prince Harry making her the Duchess of Sussex in a wedding that attracted international interest .Celebrity chef Cory Vitiello , and his girlfriend, singer Martina Sorbara, 39, are expecting a baby together.

According to Daily Mail Cory and Meghan dated until about three months before she met Prince Harry – whom she married in a beautiful ceremony on May 19, just weeks before news about her ex’s impending arrival was revealed.

This news comes just two days after it was revealed that Meghan’s ex-husband Trevor Engelson asked for his girlfriend, dietitian Tracey Kurland, to marry him.

The 41-year-old film producer and talent agent shared the news on his private Instagram account Friday with a picture with his smiling bride.

He captioned the photo: ‘Luckiest guy I know! Get ready to party!’

This will be Trevor’s second marriage after he wed Meghan in at the Jamaica Inn in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, in September 2011. The pair remained together for two years before quietly separating in August 2013.

Meghan then started dating Cory shortly after her split with Trevor.

She was with the laid-back restaurateur – who bears a striking resemblance to Harry – for almost two years before he began to tire of her alleged ‘prima donna-like behavior’, a well-placed source told the Daily Mail.

When they went out for the evening or travelled together, she would embarrass Cory, 38, by announcing she starred in the US television series Suits, and asking for the best tables and seats.

The final straw came at a dinner party for friends, it is rumoured. When their guests praised the inventive main course of pasta interwoven with courgette spirals, Meghan claimed she had dreamed up the recipe when, in truth, Cory had created the dish.

Soon after this alleged episode their love-match, which some observers had believed would lead to the altar, was over.

Relatioship Goals: Prince Harry quits smoking as he prepares to start a family with Meghan

The inside story of their relationship, which began in 2014, the year after her divorce from film producer Trevor Engelson, and ended in spring 2016, has never been told – until now.

Cory was one of Canada’s most eligible bachelors, appearing on TV and dating some of the nation’s most high-profile women.

He and Meghan met when she dined with Suits cast members at The Harbord Room, the trendy Toronto restaurant he then owned.

They quickly fell in love, and according to his mother Joanne he began staying at Meghan’s rented town house near the restaurant. The chef’s mother describes them as ‘homebodies’ who avoided attending public events if possible and did their best to keep the romance private.

At Christmas 2015 Mrs Vitiello and her husband Gerry, a retired teacher, invited Meghan to spend Christmas at their detached home in Brantford, two hours’ drive from Toronto. ‘She had no airs or graces when she was with us,’ Mrs Vitiello said.

‘She was very interested in being with the people she was with. She had a good sense of humour, and she’s very personable. We certainly enjoyed the conversations we had with her. It was all lovely when we were with Meghan.’

Mrs Vitiello would not comment on whether she had expected to hear wedding bells, but said: ‘It was serious. They were living together in the house, and they were in their 30s, so they weren’t young kids.’

She said her son has never told her why they broke up, and she doesn’t see it as her place to ask.

Mrs Vitiello and Meghan remained in touch by text and email, and Meghan sent a message telling her she was dating someone else before the world learned she was romancing Harry.

Meghan didn’t reveal who that ‘someone’ was, but shortly before her relationship with Harry became public she asked permission to visit the chef’s parents. They were away so the meeting didn’t take place, but Mrs Vitiello has no doubt that Meghan had intended to tell them about Harry ‘out of respect’.

And as for the claim about the pasta recipe? ‘I have never heard that story,’ said Mrs Vitiello with a laugh.

Cory told the Mail before the royal wedding simply that Meghan was a ‘great girl’ and he was ‘proud of her’.

Police chief begs for more cash for armed officers to protect Harry and Meghan

Police are asking for more money to pay for 24/7 security at Prince Harry and Meghan’s new country home.

Armed officers are carrying out patrols around the £1.4million farmhouse property in the Cotswolds, and high-tech cameras and sensor equipment have also been placed around their new getaway.

Their 4,000 acre estate in Great Tew, Oxfordshire, has not been deemed a royal residence so does not receive extra funding that would entitle it extra protection.

Instead, the Thames Valley Police have been having to foot the bill for extra security on the 18th century farmhouse – as well as having to cope with two royal weddings this year.

Anthony Stansfeld, police and crime commissioner for Thames Valley, has asked the Home Office for extra money to help pay for the additional security, as well as for policing the royal wedding and other big events this year, the Daily Express reports.

Thames Valley Police have had to cope with making £99million savings and cutting 450 jobs since 2010-11 – but Mr Stansfeld is confident of securing extra funds to covers the new costs.

He said: ‘There is a way of paying for that and we will be recompensed. We have a large number of VVIPs living in the Thames Valley area, from ex-prime ministers to others. We get a special allowance for doing that.’

Stansfeld said he also wanted a grant to cover the costs of the royal wedding last month.


Women undergoing lip surgery to get lips similar to Meghan Markle’s

Even though the Bible says we are fearfully and wonderfully made women can’t have enough of Meghan Markle’s lips and are dying to have such.

According to Daily mail, millions of women are now willing to go through the knife if only to have lips such as those of Meghan. The Meghna mania reached fever pitch this month, with millions of viewers around the world tuning in to watch the royal wedding.

And along with eagle-eyed fashion fans hanging on her every outfit choice, it seems royal watchers are even going under the knife to emulate the ‘Markle sparkle’.

While Kylie Jenner’s dramatically voluptuous pout has been all the rage in recent years, beauty-conscious women are now opting more natural-looking lips inspired by Meghan according to an expert.

Celebrity cosmetic doctor and star of Body Fixers, Dr Tijion Esho, has revealed that patients are increasingly asking for Meghan-esque lips, with the Duchess representing the ‘perfect’ 50-50 upper to lower lip ratio, with a defined Cupid’s bow.

‘For the best and most natural results I combine this technique with the Cupid’s Bow method, which is all about enhancing the shape of the cupid’s bow rather than plumping the entire lip area.

‘The technique has been a great success among celebrities and every day women, and I see roughly 150 clients a week.’

Following the influx of requests, Dr Esho has trialled a pioneering new lip filler technique, using two syringes for the lip body and lip line, said to achieve an ‘undetectable’ result.

Speaking exclusively to MailOnline FEMAIL, Dr Esho said: ‘Since Meghan came to the UK she has become the new fashion and beauty influencer, overtaking the likes of Kylie Jenner.

‘Rather than bringing in photos of various Kardashian members, patients are now pulling out pictures of Meghan Markle and her most sought after feature- her lips.

‘The perfect lip ratio used to be where the bottom lip is slightly larger from the top. But with new influencers like Meghan, the shift has moved across to a 50/ 50 ratio with a defined Cupid’s bow’.

In line with changing tastes, Dr Esho was soon approached by the Merz family of Merz Pharma, a German leader in the aesthetics, dermatology and neurosciences markets.

‘The Mertz family approached me to invite me as a guest to their Evaluation panel to review their two new lip products in the Belotero lip range before its release last week,’ Dr Esho explained.

The new technique, shown on Love Island star Cally-Jane Beech, uses two 0.6 syringes as opposed to one 1ml syringe, one for the lip line and one for the body of the lip.

‘Meghan’s lips capture many of the features now sought after by today’s patients and by looking at her photos from the wedding you can see why,’ Dr. Esho added.

‘Traditionally the perfect lip ratio was the ‘golden ratio’ where the bottom lip is slightly larger from the top.

‘Over time and with new influencers like Megan the shift has moved across to a 50/ 50 ratio.

‘With this there is also a very defined Cupid’s now and a slight resting pout to the bottom lip.

‘To replicate this ratio you first needs an understanding on the patient’s face, a good injection technique and the correct filler to give natural but also full results.’

9 things Kenyan girls can learn about family members from Meghan Markle’s experience

From the salty half-sister to a drunken half brother, Meghan Markle’s story is relatable to many.

A list of what the family members of Duchess of Sussex said about her in the day leading up to the royal wedding upset many.

We were all caught in our feeling, blaming them for being jealous, but I believe it’s a similar experience Kenya women (though not marrying a Prince) have gone through.

They were all over the press saying controversial things about her.  A couple of relatives have revealed that they have not been invited to the royal wedding and have said that they haven’t seen Markle in years. Others have been open about their turbulent relationship with her.

But what can Kenyan women learn from this. This post on Facebook about living your best life has been shared severally and should inspire us. Read below.


The royal wedding happened and it was beautiful, yes i enjoyed it, nothing wrong with feeling joy over someone else happiness, its not seeking validation, I mean its not that deep. But that’s neither here nor there, just some pointers I feel should be more embraced.

1. Its okay to cut off toxic relatives, the homily blood is deeper than water, has entrenched knee deep in messy family relations that strangulation itself. How many of us have had our lights diffused because of them.

2. We don’t want to leave bad relationships because we are afraid of what people would say. Lol , Meghan out here with her dirty linen hung by her so called friends and relatives, but she still moved on . I mean they sold stories some of them false but did she die?

3. The trolling in these streets of single moms …..shwee, there is Meghan acclaimed actress, feminist , humanitarian , looks like shes a wonderful person the daughter of a single mom. Thats who she took to her wedding . Throw out the whole single moms children CANNOT narrative.

4. Divorce is not a death sentence, nyef nyef she’s a divorcee, there she is ……give life or even love a second chance . You never know …..look at Meghan living her best life now.

5. Imagine if Meghan had been watching War Room and reading fascinating Womanhood ……….

6. Don’t let anyone tell you that you’re too old to get married , too old to walk down the aisle, that 5 years age gap is too much, blah blah…..Meghan just trashed that story on the full glare of the world

7. Meghan just held a blackity blackity black wedding …..Wakanda Forever. Did you hear that Black Bishop …yes tell em, or the choir ? or the Boy who made me fall in love with the cello, or the this little light of mine rendition, I swear I heard some ariririri somewhere. What am I saying even in the whitest of whiteness, Meghan was authentic enough to acknowledge her blackness, You don’t have to struggle to fit in , to prove anything . Start living your life.

8. Being broken doesn’t mean its over, if you give yourself a chance to heal and replenish, renew and refresh, guess what you can have it all even love.

9. People will always have something to say either negative or positive you alone have the power to rise above your circumstances, naysayers be damned.

Meghan wasn’t waiting for a prince to rescue her, nah she was already living her life. So go out there and live your best life NOW.

All the details of the Royals evening party

Harry and Meghan took to the floor with the funky soul classic Land of a Thousand Dances for their first dance at a spectacular royal wedding reception on Saturday night.

Comedian James Corden is reported to have launched a dance routine with Harry, his brother William and his father Charles, apparently refereeing a ‘dance-off’, while George Clooney danced with both Meghan and Kate.

The delighted guests also enjoyed an American-inspired game of beer pong, at which tennis star Serena Williams, perhaps not surprisingly, proved the champion player, after arriving in trainers.

The couple made the bold choice of the fast-paced Land of a Thousand Dances, by Wilson Pickett, as they took to the dance floor for the first time as the newly created Duke and Duchess of Sussex. It includes the lyrics ‘Do the Alligator’ and ‘Mash Potato’.

Soul singer Pickett, an Alabama native famed for his trademark screams, flaming delivery and flamboyant costumes, and enjoyed a long string of hits during the 1960s.

Corden, 39, who has enjoyed boozy nights out with Harry in Mayfair, provided entertainment at the exclusive after-party at Frogmore. A ‘worse-for-wear’ George Clooney was among the last to stagger off the dance floor.

The wedding reception was a star-studded occasion of Hollywood glamour that was hosted by Prince Charles, featured a house music DJ and concluded with a fireworks display outside an historic 17th century venue. There have even been claims that there was a DJ slot from wedding guest Idris Elba.

But missing from the day was Meghan’s father Thomas Markle – who was in Mexico after pulling out just days ago due to ill health – following an extraordinary week that saw in-fighting between her estranged family, her nephews turning up to London uninvited and her only relative at the wedding being her mother Doria Ragland.

Yesterday’s wedding reception is also said to have featured a ‘naughty’ speech from best man Prince William, an unknown ‘surprise’ from compere James Corden and a thanks from Meghan to the royals for welcoming her in.

Meghan giving a speech in itself was a break of tradition, with Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding in 2011 only having speeches from Harry, Charles and Kate’s father Michael – but not the Duchess of Cambridge.

The dinner party at Frogmore House in Windsor Great Park came after a multi-cultural and US-influenced wedding featuring an astonishing host of Hollywood guests including George Clooney, Oprah Winfrey and the Beckhams – the likes of which Britain’s royals and the millions watching have never seen before.   

Later on the reception Harry’s favourite house tracks ‘curated’ by DJ Sam Totolee, who also performed at Pippa Middleton’s wedding, and a ‘drinks of the world’ themed bar.

Also on the menu were candyfloss and ‘dirty burgers’ as midnight snacks, while one source reported a cocktail featuring ginger and rum was on the menu as a cheeky nod to Harry’s red hair, named ‘When Harry Met Meghan’.

The sit-down dinner was organic, sourced at the request of Prince Charles, and the light-bite canapes were themed ‘spring meets summer’. The meal, paid for by the Prince of Wales, ran from 7.30pm to around 10pm.

There were said to have been ‘naughty’ speeches from William and a joint effort from Tom ‘Skippy’ Inskip and Tom Van Straubenzee. Meghan is also thought to have thanked the Royal Family for welcoming her in.

One guest said that Serena Williams ‘played beer pong like it was tennis’, while James Corden organised a dance-off after Harry and Meghan had started their dance with I Wanna Dance With Somebody, the Sun reports.

Some of the more senior royals such as Charles and Camilla are said to have said their goodbyes at around 11pm, while other guests stayed at the party as late as 1am.

And Clooney, who attended the wedding with his wife Amal and whose car was seen being held up by security on the way into Frogmore, danced with Meghan and Kate but was spurned by Sarah Ferguson, according to the Mirror.

Meghan, whose dog Guy apparently made the most of the food offerings by dashing around to pick up uneaten crumbs, is said to have announced: ‘I have found my prince’.

Guests are also understood to have returned to London late last night for an ‘after-after party’ at celebrity favourite Chiltern Firehouse in Marylebone. Another party had been planned in a soundproofed private home in Chelsea.

In the afternoon, a grinning Harry is said to have turned to his guests, asking: ‘Can anyone play the piano?’ before Sir Elton John gave a moving medley of four hits – Your Song, Tiny Dancer, Circle Of Life and I’m Still Standing.

Revealed: Why Meghan and Harry will be forced to delay their honeymoon

Meghan’s big day may be behind her, but there’ll be little rest for Prince Harry‘s new wife – who is starting her official royal duties just days after the wedding.

The new Duke and Duchess of Sussex will make their first engagement as husband and wife on Tuesday at a garden party at Buckingham Palace to celebrate Prince Charles‘ 70th birthday.

Unlike previous royal couples – including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – Harry and Meghan have put their honeymoon on hold in order to hit the ground running when it comes to their duties.

The garden party on Tuesday, hosted by the Queen, will see guests from over 400 charities that the Prince of Wales is patron of.

The engagement will be Meghan’s first appearance at one of Her Majesty’s annual garden parties at Buckingham Palace.

It is also anticipated that Meghan will join the Queen at the Chelsea Flower Show this month.

Meanwhile, the newlyweds will undertake a couple of short overseas visits before the start of the summer, including a two-day visit to Dublin.

Harry is yet to visit Ireland but Meghan spent time in the country as an ambassador for the One Young World summit in 2014.

Meghan is also expected to hit the ground running when it comes to her charity work, becoming the fourth patron of the Royal Foundation set up by William, Harry and Kate.
