MEGHAN Markle was always destined to be a royal due to her beautiful handwriting according to Hollywood film actress Paula Patton, after the future royal helped write the invitations and save-the-dates for Ms Patton and musician Robin Thicke’s wedding back in 2005.
Commenting on their encounter in 2005, Ms Patton said: “I met her because she helped me with my wedding invitations. She had this beautiful writing.
“That moment I feel like I said something to her. Like, ‘You are meant to be royal.’
Meghan told Esquire she employed her calligraphy skills as her ”pseudo-waitressing job” before she found fame in the acting arena.
She recalled her time as a calligrapher, saying: “I didn’t wait tables. I did calligraphy for the invitations for, like, Robin Thicke and Paula Patton’s wedding.”
The future royal’s calligraphy skills were also praised by Paper Source CEO Winnie Park, who said she was so good she was paid to teach customers how to do it.
“She would have advised customers on projects, from wedding invitations to creating personalised stationary to gift-wrapping.
“She has talked about being a big fan of custom stationary and think it’s the best gift to give a friend.”
Meghan herself commented on her love on calligraphy on her former lifestyle blog, saying: “I think handwritten notes are a lost art form.
