Meghan Markle’s ‘best friend’ speaks out online about ‘difficult year’

Meghan Markle: Expert discusses Duchess' 'business investment'

The fashion designer wrote to her 130,000 followers, revealing plans to take a break over the Christmas period. Ms Nonoo, a resident of New York, is one of the many rumoured matchmakers of Prince Harry, 36, and Meghan, 39.

She is married to oil heir Mikey Hess, 33. They announced the birth of their first child Leo in March and wed in 2019 in front of guests including the Sussexes, Sir Paul McCartney and Ivanka Trump.

A photo of Ms Nonoo in a red shirt, shared on Christmas Eve, is captioned with a message from her team.

It says: “Whether you are with loved ones or toughing the season out in quarantine, we wish you a Happy Holiday full of hope, encouragement and faith in a brand new year to come!

“Each one of us has deeply appreciated your support this year. It has been a difficult one and we admit, we are exhausted.

“We love you, and in order to serve you with renewed energy and creativity in 2021, we are going to take a little break next week.

“We learned so much this year, and one of those things was the importance of caring for each other and taking time to rest and rejuvenate.

“We hope you are able to take some time too.”

Ms Nonoo, who designs clothing for women, was born in Bahrain, raised in London and educated in Paris, a bio on her website reveals.

Meghan has enjoyed a busy end to the year, recently announcing the launch of her podcast Archewell Audio with Harry.

Earlier this year, the royal couple, parents to Archie, one, signed a deal with streaming giant Netflix to produce a range of programmes.

The pair, who live in Montecito, California in a £11million property, said they will release the first podcast episode during the festive season.

On Christmas Eve, they shared a family Christmas card, taken at home in LA which features their two rescue dogs.

Harry and Meghan made their first public outing as a couple in 2017 – and fifteen months later, Harry proposed to Meghan.

During 2019 ITV documentary ‘Harry & Meghan: An African Journey’, Meghan said: “I would hope that people, the world, will get to the point where they just see as a couple who’s in love because I don’t wake up every day and identify as being anything other than who I’ve always been.

“It’s just, I’m Meghan and I’ve married this incredible man and this, to me, is just part of our love story.”

Sean Smith claimed in his biography, ‘Meghan Misunderstood’, that Harry had struggled to find the perfect match until meeting his wife-to-be – and his immense fame was a factor in this.

He wrote: “Prince Harry could not get a date.

“Quite simply, he was the most eligible bachelor in the country — probably the world — so popping up on Tinder to swipe right was not an option.

“Harry really wanted to meet someone special and settle down.

“His days of being a teenage tearaway were long gone.”

The couple have been sending gifts to loved-ones in the UK for Christmas.

Royal expert Katie Nicholl told True Royalty TV’s The Royal Beat that relations between Harry and Prince William, 38, are good.

She said: “Harry has sent over loads of Christmas presents for the Cambridge children.”
