George Northwood revealed he is the man behind Meghan Markle’s hair over the past two years
The man responsible for many of Meghan Markle‘s hair looks over the past two years has been revealed as British hairstylist George Northwood. He has created some of the Duchess’ most iconic looks, right from the evening of her and Harry’s wedding in May 2018, to awards and tours, among other royal appearances. This week, in honour of the end of their official roles as senior royals—and also out of excitement for his ability to finally share details about their time together—Northwood posted six photos to Instagram, each showcasing a different hairstyle of Markle’s. With each photo, the same statement read, in part: “It has been an enormous privilege and a lot of fun working with the The Duke and Duchess of Sussex over the past two years. I have enjoyed every minute collaborating with this amazing couple who not only champion small businesses, but have taught me so much about diversity, equality and the importance of good mental health.” We’ll be watching this space to see if and how their relationship continues through to her post-royal life.
