Meghan Markle’s celebrity facialist Sarah Chapman reveals Duchess of Sussex is a ‘dear friend’
Meghan Markle’s celebrity facialist Sarah Champan has recalled ‘fond memories’ with the ‘very kind and down-to-earth’ Duchess of Sussex in a gushing Instagram post.
British facialist Sarah Chapman, who set up her skincare brand Skinesis in 2008, has worked with the Duchess of Sussex, 38, for two years.
She was responsible for her glowing wedding day complexion in May 2018, as well as her final royal appearance last month at the Commonwealth Day Service.
Yesterday, she shared an Instagram post about her ‘dear friendship’ with Prince Harry, 35, and Meghan, saying: ‘I feel very grateful to be a small part of their journey observing the passion for everything they do and compassion for the causes and people they meet, but also to witness the moments other people don’t see.
‘Who they are at home, as parents, as partners, and friends, the kind and very down to earth people they are when no one is watching.’

Alongside the Instagram post, the award-winning facialist shared five pictures of the Duchess with a glowing complexion that she helped to create.
The pictures included the Duchess on her wedding day in May 2018, as well as the couple’s final royal engagement at the annual Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey last month.
In a lengthy caption, Sarah said: ‘Through my work I am fortunate to meet some incredible, interesting and inspirational people and over the past two-and-a-half years I feel honoured to have spent much time with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.’
‘With Meghan, what began as a client relationship quickly turned into a dear friendship and she welcomed me into their lives.’

Sarah added how she has seen the couple behind closed doors and has observed them as ‘parents, partners and friends’ in moments that are not often shown in public.
She continued: Every day we learn something new and I have been taught so much by them, and I always leave our time together feeling fulfilled and inspired to help people in any small ways I can.
‘I am happy to share with fond memories some of these glowing skin moments I helped create for Meghan with our natural approach to beauty and look forward to many more in the future.’
Sarah, who counts Victoria Beckham as a fan of her products, said she wished the ‘down-to-earth’ couple ‘love and positivity’ following their relocation to Los Angeles after stepping down as senior royals last month.
The celebrity facilialist shared several snaps on Instagram of moments she had worked with Meghan on her glowing skin, including her wedding day
She said: ‘And to Meghan, Harry and little Archie: sending lots of love and positivity during this transition.
In her final message, she wrote: ‘I know there will be so many ways you will continue to touch people’s lives and enable positive change and we can’t wait to see what you do next. See you soon and thank you for everything you do. SC x.’
Meghan and Harry are currently living in LA, having flown there with Archie from Canada last week before the borders closed due to coronavirus.
The pair shared their final post on the Sussex Royal Instagram account on March 30, ahead of officially stepping down as working senior royals.

They were rumoured to be revealing their new brand and charity this week, with Instagram being their launch platform of choice.
However, appearing on This Morning, royal commentator Camilla claimed that all plans to ‘rebrand as celebrities’ have been put ‘on ice’.
