Meghan Markle’s brow guru is fixing your eyebrows at home with virtual Zoom appointments

If we had to hazard a wild guess, we’d say your eyebrows aren’t looking their finest at the moment. Even if you'd were smart enough to book in for a salon threading or waxing session back in March, you’re doubtless sprouting regrowth by now.

So what can you and your brows do? You could grab your tweezers and risk spearheading an accidental return to the 90s microbrow. Or you could call for professional help.

Step forward Sherrille Riley, the founder of London’s Nails & Brow salon and eyebrow guru to none other than Meghan Markle. She’s now offering 1-2-1 digital appointments over Zoom or WhatsApp video, where she’ll personally guide you through a DIY brow tidy.

  • Jess Wright uses these luxe-looking £1 lashes to create gorgeous makeup looks

  • This weird DIY face mask using Yakult claims to give you softer, smoother skin – but does it really work?

“The idea started after so many of my clients contacted me asking how to look after their own brows,” she explained. “That’s when I decided to start offering digital appointments as a new service to anyone who wants help.” Each appointment lasts 15 minutes and costs £32.

Sherrille certainly knows her stuff. She’s been in the business for over 20 years, and is famed for her signature face-lifting ‘Audrey’ eyebrow, inspired by the legendary Hepburn.

In fact, Meghan Markle is the poster girl for The Audrey, which arches up to the middle and then stays lifted out toward the temples. Sherrille took the actress on a whole Hepburn brow journey back in her pre-Harry days, coaxing her eyebrows into the thicker, more lifted style she has today.

You don’t have to be a VIP to sign up to Sherrille’s latest offering though. Simply log onto the website here to request an appointment. The service is already so popular Sherrille is roping in her top brow team, but you can request an appointment with Sherrille directly.

You don't need any special equipment, as Sherrille will just work with what you have, but she's got a rather lovely range available to buy online here.

Curious to know what’s involved in a digital brow makeover? OK! beauty director Lynne Hyland signed up to try it…

Lynne says

I hadn’t touched my brows since lockdown began, so they weren’t looking their sharpest as I clicked on my Zoom link. The prospect of sharing my monobrow via an extreme close up could have been excruciating, but Sherrille has the most wonderful, calming aura about her – even over a video call. It’s no wonder why she has so many loyal VIP clients.

She began by asking me to brush my brows up so she could see what we were dealing with. “Not bad at all, you have a nice shape,” she said (generously, I felt).

As I leaned into the webcam while clutching a mirror in one hand, she guided me through tweezing almost hair by hair, voicing gentle caution if I risked accidentally plucking anything off the tails of my brows. (That’s a big no-no if you want the face-lifting Audrey effect.)

Sherrille was so charming, I soon forgot I was probably giving her an intimate view of the inside of my nostrils as I loomed towards the camera, plucking away at my monobrow. It should have been embarrassing but it was oddly soothing to be guided through my tweezing.

Once we were both happy with the shape, she shared her artist-like technique for defining the brows. The trick, she revealed, was to begin by sketching a pencil lightly all the way along the lower edge of the brows. That gives you the perfect base line from which to start feathering little strokes upwards.

It was so simple, yet it was the best DIY brow make-up I’d ever done. Call me a dummy but I’d never realised before that you’re actually MEANT to get the pencil (lightly) onto your skin if you want your brows to look thicker. I always thought you were only supposed to pencil the hairs themselves. Doh.

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from a virtual brow appointment but I loved it. I reckon it’s money well spent if you want to fix your brow overgrowth while feeling like royalty.

Prince Harry reunites with Meghan Markle and baby Archie in Canada after final engagement as a senior working royal

The Duke of Sussex has had an emotional reunion with his wife Meghan Markle and their baby boy Archie Harrison after he flew back to Canada after his final visit to the UK as a working royal. Prince Harry was spotted on a commercial flight with his security team, travelling to Victoria International Airport on Thursday, according to a fellow passenger on Twitter. The couple are now both back with their son after completing their final engagements as senior working members of the royal family earlier this week. As Hello! reported previously, Meghan flew back to Canada on Monday, shortly after the couple attended the Commonwealth Day Service at Westminster Abbey alongside the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, The Earl and Countess of Wessex, and the Queen. But while Meghan reunited with baby Archie the following morning, Harry remained in the UK for work, including meetings at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday.

Harry and Meghan’s final joint appearance as senior working royals

Harry’s return to their new home in Canada must have been a poignant one – marking the start of an entirely new life for the 35-year-old. The Commonwealth Day Service was the couple’s final planned joint public appearance following their announcement in January that they no longer wished to be senior working royals. From 31 March, under an agreement with the Queen that will be reviewed in a year’s time, they will be free to pursue their own business interests. However, that means giving up all royal appointments and sources of funding, and Harry and Meghan confirmed they would, therefore, be shutting down their office at Buckingham Palace, resulting in job losses for up to 15 members of staff.

As part of their brief visit to the country this month, which also saw the couple attend the Endeavour Fund Awards, which honour the sporting achievements of sick and wounded military veterans, Harry and Meghan hosted a leaving lunch for their team. HELLO! confirmed that this surprise goodbye meal took place at five-star Belgravia hotel The Goring last Thursday.

Harry and Meghan’s final round of engagements has seen the couple attend the aforementioned Commonwealth Day service and Endeavour Fund Awards, attend the Mountbatten Festival of Music while also carry out some private engagements over the past week.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Attend Final Royal Event: PICS

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry reunited with several senior members of the royal family, including Queen Elizabeth II, Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Charles, and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, on Monday to celebrate Commonwealth Day. The event marked their last scheduled appearance as senior members of the royal family. 

Unlike in previous years, the Sussexes and the Cambridges did not participate in the Queen’s processional, meaning they went directly to their seats without any fanfare. 

Meghan, 38, wowed in a kelly green Emilia Wickstead cape dress with a matching William Chambers fascinator hat and beige Aquazzura heels. Harry, 35, donned a navy suit, but when the wind whipped up, the green lining of his jacket revealed he was secretly matching his bride. 

Kate, 38, and William, 37, arrived shortly after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, with Kate in a dark red coat dress and matching hat that she paired with a sleek up ‘do. William wore a dark suit and a tie that matched his wife’s look. 





All eyes are on the reunion of the Fab Four — their first public meeting since Harry and Meghan announced their decision to step down as senior members of the royal family. Though they didn’t have a big reunion moment, Harry and Meghan were seated directly behind Kate, William, Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, and Camilla. 

Meghan, Harry, Kate and William were last spotted together in November at Remembrance Day events, though they were not photographed interacting at the time. 

A source previously told ET that the brothers are “talking more and they’re on better footing” after a difficult period.

“The brothers don’t hate each other as has been reported,” a royal source told ET, adding that “they do talk.”

The annual Commonwealth Day service is held at Westminster Abbey in London. The Sussexes and Cambridges both attended last year and were photographed together. 

Harry and Meghan are currently visiting the United Kingdom ahead of their official March 31 transition where they will step down from being senior members of the royal family. After the decision was announced in January, the couple went to Vancouver Island, Canada, with their 9-month-old son, Archie. 

Harry returned to the U.K. in late February and was later joined by Meghan for some final royal events before the transition. The couple previously attended the Endeavour Fund Awards last Thursday and the Mountbatten Music Festival over the weekend.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Admit to a 'Saddening' Aspect of Their Exit from Royal Life

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are sharing new details about their transition as they prepare to step down as senior members of the Royal Family next month.

The update, released on Harry and Meghan’s website, Sussex Royal, on Friday outlines the couple’s plan to launch a non-profit organization.

“As shared in early January on this website, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not plan to start a ‘foundation,’ but rather intend to develop a new way to effect change and complement the efforts made by so many excellent foundations globally,” the website states.

Additionally, Harry and Meghan hope “the creation of this non-profit entity will be in addition to their cause driven work that they remain deeply committed to.”

Due to the rules surrounding the use of the word “royal” following their transition, Meghan and Harry will not “utilize the name ‘Sussex Royal’ or any other iteration of ‘Royal'” in their non-profit’s name.

Because of this, the trademark applications that had been filed for Sussex royal have since been removed.

“While there is not any jurisdiction by The Monarchy or Cabinet Office over the use of the word ‘Royal’ overseas, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not intend to use ‘Sussex Royal’ or any iteration of the word ‘Royal’ in any territory (either within the UK or otherwise) when the transition occurs Spring 2020,” the website states.

Also in the update, it is revealed that Harry and Meghan will continue to require effective security “to protect them and their son.”

“This is based on The Duke’s public profile by virtue of being born into The Royal Family, his military service, the Duchess’ own independent profile, and the shared threat and risk level documented specifically over the last few years,” the statement reads.

As previously reported by PEOPLE, a review is still set to follow after 12 months, at which point the royal family will revisit the agreement.

“While there is precedent for other titled members of the Royal Family to seek employment outside of the institution, for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, a 12-month review period has been put in place,” the website states.

“Per the agreement The Duke and Duchess of Sussex understand that they are required to step back from Royal duties and not undertake representative duties on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen.”

Harry will retain the ranks of Major, Lieutenant Commander and Squadron Leader during this 12-month period, however, his honorary military positions will not be used. No new appointments will be made to fill these roles before the 12-month review of the new arrangements is completed.

Harry will also remain sixth in line to the throne.

Despite looking forward to their new chapter, Harry and Meghan have found the transition to be “saddening” when it comes to letting go of their staff.

“Based on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s desire to have a reduced role as members of The Royal Family, it was decided in January that their Institutional Office would have to be closed, given the primary funding mechanism for this official office at Buckingham Palace is from HRH The Prince of Wales. The Duke and Duchess shared this news with their team personally in January once they knew of the decision, and have worked closely with their staff to ensure a smooth transition for each of them,” the website states.

“Over the last month and a half, The Duke and Duchess have remained actively involved in this process, which has understandably been saddening for The Duke and Duchess and their loyal staff, given the closeness of Their Royal Highnesses and their dedicated team.”

The update concludes with a note encouraging the public to use their website for “factual information.”

“In Spring 2020, their digital channels will be refreshed as they introduce the next exciting phase to you.”

Meghan and Harry will also be traveling to the U.K. to carry out several engagements over the next few months.

The prince will attend the Invictus Games Choir Visit on Feb. 28 alongside singer Jon Bon Jovi, as well as the Silverstone Experience opening with Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton on March 6.

The pair will also attend Endeavour Fund Awards on March 5, which acknowledges the wounded, injured and sick service personnel and veterans who used sports as part of their journey to recovery, and they will also be at the Mountbatten Music Festival at the Royal Albert Hall on March 7.

They will also attend the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on Commonwealth Day on March 9 alongside the rest of the royal family. Additionally, Meghan will mark International Women’s Day on March 8.

Harry will be present at the London Marathon on April 26 and the couple will take part in Harry’s Invictus Games held in The Hague, Netherlands in May. In 2017, the Invictus Games was where the couple made their first public appearance together.

Harry and Meghan first announced their bombshell decision to take a step back in January.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to stop using ‘Sussex Royal’ name from Spring 2020

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have announced they will no longer use the name “Sussex Royal” for their new foundation.

Reports had suggested earlier this week that the Queen had told the Duke and Duchess of Sussex not to use the name after their decision to step back from the family earlier this year.

A statement from a spokesperson for the couple confirmed on Friday evening that trademark applications for the name have been removed.

  • The Queen 'asks Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to return to the UK' weeks after they move to Canada

  • Princess Diana looks sensational in sparkling tiara in unearthed video from wedding day to Prince Charles

“While The Duke and Duchess are focused on plans to establish a new non-profit organisation, given the specific UK government rules surrounding use of the word ‘Royal’, it has been therefore agreed that their non-profit organisation, when it is announced this Spring, will not be named Sussex Royal Foundation.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not intend to use ‘SussexRoyal’ in any territory post Spring 2020.

“Therefore the trademark applications that were filed as protective measures, acting on advice from and following the same model for The Royal Foundation, have been removed,” the spokesperson said.

It comes after further details about Harry and Meghan’s duties were announced earlier this week as they begin their new life away from the royal family.

After the couple announced earlier this year that they will step back from royal life, Buckingham Palace confirmed that the changes will come into effect on March 31 with a one year review following.

Before then, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will appear at six engagements in the UK, after spending the last month in Canada.

Harry will attend an engagement on February 28 with Jon Bon Jovi at a recording session for his song Unbroken, which will be released in aid of the Invictus Foundation.

On March 5 the couple will attend the annual Endeavour Fund Awards in London.

Meghan will then join Harry for another event at the Royal Albert Hall on March 8 to mark International Women's Day.

The couple will then join the Queen and the Royal Family for the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on March 9.

Harry and Meghan will no longer have an office at Buckingham Palace from April onwards.

Buckingham Palace also released details of Harry’s military role.

“Prince Harry will retain ranks of Major, Lieutenant Commander, and Squadron Leader, however, during this 12-month period his honorary military positions will not be used. No new appointments will be made to fill these roles before the review is completed,” they said in a statement.

Meghan Markle was always destined for royalty says former game show host colleague Howie Mandel

We all know that Meghan Markle effectively retired from her career as an actress not long before she officially married Prince Harry and joined the Royal Family.

While many people are familiar with the 38 year-old's role on the hit legal show Suits, few British people know about her previous job working on a big American TV game show.

  • Queen tells Meghan Markle and Prince Harry they're 'not allowed to use the Sussex Royal title' 

  • Prince Harry 'in talks with banking giant Goldman Sachs' as he and Meghan Markle 'set to earn £1billion'

Before Suits and her rather short-lived life as a senior royal, Meghan was a regular on an exported version of Noel Edmonds' Deal or No Deal.

The game show's host, America's Got Talent judge Howie Mandel, remembers Meghan fondly, saying recently that she was always destined to be ''royalty''.

Howie was asked if Meghan had ever shown any sign of her future as a princess during her time as a 'case girl' on the hour-long NBC show. His answer was somewhat surprising… "I did!" he claims. "I always saw her as royalty!"

"Really!" he explains. "During the commercials, I would bow down to her. And she would ask, 'why are you doing that? Why are you doing that?!' and I would say, 'you'll see… you'll see.'

"And then she got a role in Suits and she said, 'is it because of the show?' And I went, 'no, you'll see!'"

Shortly after that, Meghan would quit her job attending to the number 24 briefcase on the show when in 2011 she was cast to play the paralegal Rachel Zane in the legal drama Suits.

She went on to be a series regular for the first seven series, before being written out after her engagement to Prince Harry was formally announced, back in the autumn of 2017.

It’s thought that the current break away from royal duties is to be helping the couple build their relationship back up and strengthen their family unit.

A source close to the couple recently told PEOPLE: “They are besotted and very sweet with each other again.”

The pair were then described by the friend as being a lot more relaxed now, enjoying long walks and time spent with son Archie and their favourite pets.

They said: “They are real homebodies who love to chill out with Archie and the dogs.”

Meghan Markle is more likely to live in Toronto than Vancouver as she has former links to the city

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are currently believed to be living on Vancouver Island after stepping back as senior members of the royal family. Prince Harry, 35, and Meghan, 38, made the announcement earlier this month and said they plan to balance their time between the UK and North America.

The Sussexes also spent the Christmas break with their eight-month-old son Archie on Vancouver Island, suggesting they may set up a permanent base there. However, one detail on the royal family’s website could suggest that the family-of-three are more likely to live in Toronto than Vancouver. It states under Meghan’s biography: “Whilst working on Suits, the Duchess moved to Toronto, Canada where the show was filmed; she feels very connected to Canada, as it became a second home to her.”

Former actress Meghan lived in a stylish townhouse in the trendy Seaton Village area of the city and she would often share her favourite places to eat, drink and shop on her now-defunct lifestyle blog The Tig. Speaking of the city, Los Angeles-born Meghan said: “The people are so kind, I love the food scene and I really love exploring little nooks around the city with my two dogs. I love how much green space there is tucked away.” She added: “You wouldn’t expect that, and it reminds me of LA in a lot of ways.”

Her go-to places in Toronto included cocktail bar Cold Tea tucked inside Kensington Mall, French patisserie Nadège, which is close to Trinity Bellwoods Park and the Blackbird Baking Co.

The Duchess’ close friend, stylist Jessica Mulroney and her TV presenter husband Ben also live in Toronto. Harry and Meghan reportedly stayed with the Mulroneys during the early stages of their relationship and their children Brian, John and Ivy were part of the bridal party at the royal wedding in 2018.

Buckingham Palace released details of the agreement for Harry and Meghan on 18 January, including that the couple will no longer use their HRH status and will no longer represent the Queen under the agreement reached by all four royal households.
