Despite rumors, Meghan Markle hasn’t cut out all her old friends. The Duchess of Sussex recently had lunch with makeup artist and longtime friend Daniel Martin.
On Sunday, Martin posted a photo of avocado toast, tea and chocolates on his verified Instagram account. It’s the caption that makes it obvious that he is referring to Meghan Markle.
“Back to our Tig days,” he wrote with a heart emoji. “Thank you Meghan for being the consummate hostess this weekend and still being the #avocadotoast whisperer, YUM!”
The Tig was Meghan’s lifestyle blog. The former “Suits” actress has also been vocal about her love for avocado toast. “If I’m at a hotel I will likely order poached eggs and toast with avocado,” she told EyeSwoon in 2015.
It seems like she gave her friend the hotel treatment. The hostess may have served Martin in her temporary home in the Cotswolds. She and Prince Harry are renting a $2.5 million farmhouse. The property includes a two-bedroom cottage that Martin could have stayed in.
On Saturday, the makeup artist posted an Instagram Story that included a video taken from a train window of the countryside. “Weekend in London with my M,” he wrote with a heart emoji.
If they were in London, they may have spent time at Nottingham Cottage, Meghan and Harry’s two-bedroom abode at Kensington Palace.
Martin met Meghan in 2011. While he didn’t do her makeup for “Suits,” he helped her look her best during press junkets, red carpets and photo shoots. The Duchess of Sussex had him do both her and her mother’s makeup on her wedding day in May 2018. He told Elle that she was a joy to work with on the big day.
“Her makeup look was very collaborative,” Martin said. “She’s extremely decisive and I know exactly what she wants. She’s very open and loves makeup so it’s always been fun playing dress up with her!”
