Meghan Markle is entering into a real-life fairy tale and the world can hardly wait! The wedding is the talk of the century and the world can’t seem to get enough of the royal bride to be and her future hubby.
Meghan Markle, who is an American actress, comes from a diverse past. The royal-to-be attended private schools, received a Bachelor’s degree with a double major in Theater and International Studies. Now, she's only weeks away from being Prince Harry's beloved wife. She stays quite busy but in her spare time, she focused on the lost art of hand-lettering.
Hand-lettering is truly a lost art, especially in the age of technology that we live in now. With everything being communicated via text or over the phone, it’s not often that people spend time hand-writing letters. Meghan has a special place in her heart for the art and she's actually incredibly gifted at it!
Meghan worked as a calligrapher at Paper Source, a Beverly Hills boutique from 2004- 2005.
Paper Source CEO, Winnie Park, recently interviewed with PEOPLE and shared that the bride-to-be worked as a calligrapher while she was going through auditions during her early days in Hollywood. “She taught calligraphy and hosted a group of customers and instructed them during a two-hour class on how to do calligraphy.”
She also worked as a freelance calligrapher where she worked for celebrities in crafting wedding invitations. She created the wedding invitations for A-list celebrities, Robin Thicke and Paula Patton, in their 2005 wedding.
Meghan shared that her side job as a calligrapher provided financially, as well as fed her creative thirst. She truly loves the art creating art with her letters! On her former blog, The Tig, she shared, “I think handwritten notes are a lost art form. When I booked my first [Television] pilot, my dad wrote me a letter that I still have. The idea of someone taking the time to put pen to paper is really special.” See her work below!
Her former boss respected the future royal’s appreciation for the art of lettering and shared, “She’s someone who really enjoys the creative aspects of the job, who enjoys helping people and also someone who enjoys making creative projects come to life,” Park adds. “Our sales associates are screened for their creativity and Meghan had that!”
Her work is truly breathtaking and her letters are truly fit for a princess!
