But a close associate said Meghan has decided Labrador-German shepherd cross Bogart will remain in Canada.

They said: “Meghan adored that dog but the decision not to take him back was based on Bogart’s relationship with Harry.

“Bogart never took to Harry when they spent time together in Canada.

“He didn’t like Harry. Meghan was very vocal about the fact it wouldn’t be fair to take him back full-time, given Bogart’s feelings for her husband.

    “'Or if you get a fascinator that's very small, are you not going for tradition? I'd never needed a fascinator in my life, and here I was trying to walk this tightrope of 'don't go too big, don't go too small'. It was a nightmare.'”

    He said: “As we have a lot of redness in the middle of our face, it's better to start here and blend out so you can gauge the coverage you're getting.”

    MEGHAN DIDN'T PAY FOR DAD'S MEDICAL BILLS AS HE HAD 'ENOUGH CASH SELLING STORIES'

    Meghan did not help her ailing dad with medical bills before her wedding – because he already had enough cash from selling stories about her, court papers claim.

    The Duchess of Sussex provided “substantial financial support to her father from January 2014” that stopped in 2018 when they cut contact.

    The Royal has now submitted court documents showing her previously “very close” dad had earned more than enough to cover bills for his heart treatment.

    The papers show Mr Markle himself recognised his story payments covered the £1,996 insurance excess he needed as his daughter was preparing to marry Prince Harry.

    The court papers reportedly say Mr Markle’s medical bills “would appear to exceed and offset the excess medical cost of roughly $2,500.”

    By Chloe is one of the Duchess of Sussex's favourite restaurants, according to Metro, and the vegan poutine was available via Deliveroo.

    By Chloe’s vegan version is probably healthier but no less delicious than the original – theirs is made with chips, seitan 'chorizo', cashew nut cheese and vegan gravy.

    Meghan, 38, called herself 'The Working Actress' and used a silhouette of an empty director's chair as the logo for her anonymous blog full of fruity language and revealing confessions.

    The blog was started in January 2010, with Meghan telling readers how she was “hustling” for stardom.

    The interview revealed that Meghan, 38, had written a letter to her estranged father Thomas Markle, three months after he was unable to walk her down the aisle following a heart attack.

    The letter was then published by the Mail on Sunday – with Meghan now suing its publisher Associated Newspapers for breaching her privacy.

    The High Court states: “The claimant realised Friends A, B and C had given anonymous interviews to People magazine upon learning that the article had been published.

    “Her belief that they had been involved was confirmed during phone calls via FaceTime on the day of publication and the following day.

    “The claimant learnt Friend D was one of the anonymous sources for the People magazine article on or around February 19 2019 when the two of them met in person.

    “She subsequently learnt of Friend E’s involvement a few days later during a celebration with friends to mark the forthcoming birth of her son.

    “She will be terrified of failure, very bossy and dominating by using charm, wit and drama to get what she wants.”

    Johnny said that other famous people to possess the simian line include Tony Black and Hillary Clinton, and claims it reflects a powerful personality.

    MEGHAN IS A BIG FAN OF IVANKA TRUMP AND WANTED TO BE FRIENDS

    In 2014 wrote of her admiration for the 38-year-old business woman in her now defunct lifestyle blog, The Tig.

    She wrote: “Staggeringly beautiful, no question, but so incredibly savvy and intelligent that she’s not just carved a niche for herself under her father’s famed Trump notoriety, she has undoubtedly created her own empire.”

    Meghan added: “This much I know – when we have drinks, I will make sure I order whatever she does – because this woman seems to have the formula for success (and happiness) down pat.”

    WESTMINSTER ABBEY BELLS WON'T RING ON MEGHAN'S BIRTHDAY

    AFP

    Westminster Abbey's bells will not chime to mark Meghan's birthday next month as they do for other royals.

    The birthday bells will ring for Kate Middleton when she turns 39 early next year and they sounded in February for Prince Andrew's birthday.

    Bosses at the Abbey have said the bells typically ring for senior members of the royal family, although Harry is sixth in line to the throne – two places ahead of Andrew.

    “Don’t get me wrong, early parenthood is exhausting,” she said. “I’m sure you know a thing or two about that these days.

    “But there is something so magical about having a baby in the house. Time expands and contracts; each moment holds its own little eternity.

    “I’m so excited for you and Harry to experience that, Meghan. Savour it all.”

    MEGHAN'S WEDDING PINTEREST BOARD

    And it turns out, Meghan Markle is no different.The Duchess of Sussex’s make-up artist, Daniel Martin, has revealed details behind their secret wedding planning and how she created her flawless look.

    Speaking on the beauty podcast Gloss Angeles, he said that Pinterest was key in selecting a glam style for Meghan’s Windsor wedding to Prince Harry in May 2018.

    He said: “I didn’t have a makeup trial with her because we couldn’t make the time.

    “I knew what she liked and didn’t like. We exchanged a Pinterest pictures over text.”

    But despite not having time for a test run, Daniel pulled out all the stops on the day – opting for a glam, fresh-faced face of makeup which let Meghan's freckles shine.

    MEGHAN AND KATE’S DIAMOND FASHION RULE

    The Royals might have an enviable jewellery collection – but Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton are reportedly only allowed to wear certain jewels in the evening.

    According to an etiquette expert, members of the royal family only wear diamonds after 6pm to “avoid looking flashy”.

    Of course, both Kate and Meghan wear their engagement rings every day, but lavish items are reportedly reserved for special occasions.

    Etiquette expert Myka Meier said that while other jewels like pearls and topaz are often worn before 6pm, the royals avoid anything too extravagant to “avoid looking flashy”.

    Kate is often seen wearing budget-friendly jewellery – such as her £8 Accessorize earrings – and Meghan has regularly been spotted wearing affordable Missoma rings.

    “Before 6pm, you’ll see metallics, gemstones, pearls [and] sapphires,” Meier told News.com.au. “At night, you’ll see the diamonds come out, and that’s in order to not come across as flashy in your appearance.”

    MEGHAN'S SUPERVET TRIP

    Meghan Markle is famous for her love of dogs – having affectionately referred to her pooches as "her babies" and even acting as a Royal patron for animal rights charity Mayhew.

    In 2017, the Duchess made the heartbreaking decision to leave her pet dog Bogart in Canada when she moved to the UK – shortly before her engagement was announced.

    However, she did bring her second dog Guy with her to London – but not long after the move, the Duchess was left “distraught” when he broke both his legs.

    According to the Mail, Meghan's pet beagle was involved in an accident not long after she got engaged to Prince Harry and was taken to Supervet star Noel Fitzpatrick for surgery at his practice in Surrey.

    Luckily, Guy made a full recovery and is currently living out in LA with the family – along with the couple's new dog who is thought to be called Oz.

    Earlier this week, The Sun exclusively revealed that Meghan Markle had left her beloved pet dog Bogart behind in Canada because "he didn't like Prince Harry".
