Meghan Markle is no stranger to reading about herself, we’re sure, but when one of the world’s most well-known couples pay a personal tribute to you it’s got to feel a little odd. After Beyoncé and Jay-Z gave her a personal shout-out when they won a BRIT Award for Best International Group this past February, the Duchess of Sussex’s makeup artist and close confidant revealed she replied with just one emoji.
Instead of accepting the award in person, the Carters decided to recreate a scene from their ‘Apeshit’ music video and replaced a portrait of the Mona Lisa with one of Meghan Markle by illustrator Tim O’Brien. The Duchess had never responded to the tribute.
Speaking with Gayle King for a sit-down interview on CBS special Meghan and Harry Plus One, Martin revealed fascinating tidbits about his royal client and friend, including Meghan’s surprisingly relatable response to the Carters’ tribute.
“I sent her a pic. I think it was a screen grab of the two of them in front of the portrait. I think all I wrote was, ‘Girl,'” Martin told King. The duchess responded with one emoji. “She wrote me back like the big eye emoji,” Martin revealed.
