Nowadays Meghan Markle is one of the most talked about women in the world with millions wondering - and speculating - about what the 38-year-old is like behind closed doors. While those who knew the Duchess of Sussex before she met Prince Harry usually remain tight-lipped about their friendship with the royal, sometimes we're gifted with a glimpse at her private life from the likes of Serena Williams and Priyanka Chopra.
Today one of Meghan's closest friends, designer Misha Nonoo, opened up for the first time since her engagement to Prince Harry, speaking about her thoughtfulnes and loyalty, something that hasn't changed despite almost everything else shifting around her.
“From, you know, the handwritten thank-you letters that you receive, to never missing a birthday, an occasion, checking in," Nonoo told the New York Times of Meghan's thoughtfulness. "You may think because someone’s so busy that they’re not there, but that has never changed, how genuinely thoughtful she is."
“I’m sure people probably think, like, ‘Things must be so different!’ et cetera, et cetera. ‘That must affect her friendships!’" she told the Times. "But all I can say is that from my perspective, she has not changed as a friend. From when I first met her, to a text that I would send yesterday or today, nothing has ever changed. Nothing."
The designer, who worked with Meghan on her new fashion collection for Smart Works, says the two met at Art Basel in Miami around eight years ago. "We sat down and we started, actually, right from the get-go, talking about a shared passion for equality, women’s empowerment and our love of dogs," Misha said.
Of working together for the charity, she shared that Meghan isn't a micromanager and trusts those she's collaborating with. "I think, really being the person that she is, for each brand that she’s working with, she’s really entrusted us. She’s not a micromanager. She’s not that type of personality."
“Obviously, my experience is different to probably a lot of the other partners. All I can say is that she is the most generous, the most genuine person,” she said, calling Meghan “such a sister in the sense that, you know, if you’re her friend, she’ll do anything for you.”
