Meghan was asked for her autograph yesterday by a young girl. The royal family Ian not allowed to sign autographs/ signatures for fans , so instead of simply saying “no I can’t I’m sorry” and walking away, Meghan actually wrote her a little note and addded a smiley face. It was so thoughtful and sweet of her to do such a thing. But I wonder if they’ll forbid her from doing this as well, it’s technically still her handwriting and she’s signing something

I’m probably just reiterating what I’ve already said so sorry if this isn’t the most exciting response. I think that signing a note is fine as the issue with autographs is they shouldn’t be signing things which aren’t official documents and could be used for forgeries. But signing a note probably isn’t putting anything at risk and will certainly be something that little girl remembers for life! I do think that things like that probably won’t happen a huge number of times because unfortunately they are supposed to keep to a very strict timetable and can’t dawdle- as kate has said. Writing notes takes up time so I imagine that she’ll be gently encouraged not to do it, but I don’t see why it would be off limits completely 🙂

“Sources tell me that Meghan Markle has officially picked a wedding dress designer and had her first fitting at Kensington Palace last week.”

Omid Scobie on Twitter

Bridal expert Jessica Mulroney is guiding Meghan though the process and quietly flew in to London on Jan 10, spending four days at the couple’s Nottingham Cottage home.

Right now only a small, select group of people know the designer’s name, so don’t expect to find out any time soon. Even Harry made himself scarce during the first fitting!

Kate was snapped stuck in traffic at the wheel of her Range Rover in London on Friday afternoon, likely on her way to fetch Prince George from school.

The pregnant Duchess could have been any other busy mum as she waited patiently ahead of a number 11 bus on the Kings Road in Chelsea.
