Meghan Markle’s Facialist Praises the Sussexes in New Instagram Post

Sarah Chapman described the pair as "kind and very down to earth people."

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have officially begun their new post-royal life this week. The pair’s royal duties ended on March 31, and they are currently residing in Los Angeles after departing from Vancouver Island earlier this month. After farewelling their royal Instagram account last week, several of the Duchess’s beauty team have come forward to share stories about their time working with her over the past two years. Most recently, facialist Sarah Chapman has taken to Instagram to praise both Meghan and Harry for being “kind and very down to earth people.”

Under a gallery of images showing off Meghan’s signature glowing complexion, Chapman wrote, “Through my work I am fortunate to meet some incredible, interesting and inspirational people and over the past two and a half 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 compassions 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.” She added that she has been “taught so much by them” and that she always left their time together “feel fulfilled and inspired to help people in any small ways I can.”

She then wished the pair the best of luck for their new adventure, writing, “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.”

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.

The post follows that of celebrity hairstylist George Northwood who shared a series of images on his Instagram page last week revealing that he was the man behind Meghan’s royal mane over the past two years. He shared a similar sentiment to Chapman, writing, “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.”

Last week, a spokesperson for the couple revealed that they are taking some time as a family as they work out how to begin their new non-profit venture amidst the global COVID-19 pandemic.
