Now she’s a soon-to-be fully-fledged citizen of the UK, it’s only right that Meghan Markle finds her regular haunts for all the time she’ll be spending in London.
Of course now she’s engaged to Prince Harry, it’s likely she’ll be popping to her spots with a bodyguard or two in tow rather than UK-based buddies like Millie Mackintosh and Tanya Burr.
But when’s not making chicken dinners with Harry in his cosy cottage, where does Ms Markle like to go? We’ve rounded up some of Meghan’s favourite London hangouts.
Sarah Chapman Skinesis Clinic, Sloane Square
When you’re going to face the world’s media for a royal announcement, prepping your skin is tantamount. Meghan was spotted earlier in November leaving famed skin expert Sarah Chapman’s Sloane Square clinic with a bag full of Sarah Chapman’s cult beauty products.
It’s likely Meghan popped in for one of Sarah’s renowned facials, which are loved by Victoria Beckham and Jourdan Dunn too, or perhaps she was stocking up on her skincare while in town.
Whole Foods, High St Kensington
It’s just down the road from Harry’s digs at Kensington Palace, so it’s no surprise that Meghan popped on down to her nearby Whole Foods store for the weekly shop. Meghan’s a keen foodie so she no doubt feels right at home in the three-storey building packed with organic delights, treats and a café too.
Need a date night location? Prince Harry and Meghan favour Soho House, the private members’ club in the West End of London where the pair are said to have been introduced. You’ve just got to get yourself a membership first…
Kensington Flower Corner
Again, a bit of a local pitstop for Harry and Meghan’s Nottingham Cottage home at Kensington Palace, but Kensington Flower Corner, on the corner of Kensington High Street, is something of an institution around W8. Meghan’s been seen picking up bunches of blooms here, and the pretty petals make for instant Instagram fodder. FYI, Meghan’s favourite flower is a peony.
Shopping on the Kings Road
There’s really nowhere else for Meghan to shop than the Kings Road, like almost sister-in-law Kate Middleton who’s often spotted in Sloane Square’s Peter Jones. Meghan’s already been seen with goodies from swimwear store Heidi Klein, which is just around the corner.
If you really want to get serious about your skin, pop to Nichola Joss’ Covent Garden home which is where Meghan apparently went for a facial before Pippa Middleton’s wedding. Nichola’s signature facial is like no other though, targeting sagging skin through lymphatic massage and contouring. The difference? It involves a deep massage from inside the mouth. The therapist wears latex gloves to work along the inside of the jaw, pulling out tension and stress from muscles that sit on top of the cheekbones. Talk about sculpted in the city.
