Everyone who follows the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on Instagram knows that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle typically use the app to draw attention to causes, funds, and campaigns close to the couple’s hearts. But after attending Misha Nonoo’s high-profile wedding this week, Meghan found a clever and casual way to send her friend some Insta-love.
Nonoo is a fashion designer and Forbes 30 Under 30 alum. She has been close with Meghan since her Suits days, and is also a longtime friend of Harry’s — though it’s never been confirmed, many have suspected she was the one to first set the royals up. More recently, Nonoo and Meghan have teamed up professionally to work on The Smart Set, Meghan’s capsule collection for British charity Smart Works.
Just a week before Nonoo’s wedding, Meghan launched her new line — but she waited until after her friend’s big day to share a touching photo of the two hugging, both wearing matching button-downs from the collection.
“In just over one week, your active support has helped equip the women of Smart Works with enough units from this capsule collection to help for a full year!” Meghan wrote, and added that though most of the collection is already sold out, it will quickly be restocked. She tagged Nonoo in the post.
Nonoo married oil tycoon Mikey Hess in a Rome villa on Friday, surrounded by a star-studded guest list that included Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom. Meghan wore a regal black tulle Valentino gown.
Though she could have shared a shot from the wedding, her choice to post a sweet photo from the launch instead is classic Meghan. Though the duchess is showing her friend some very timely support and congratulations, her message is still directed towards her millions of followers, encouraging us to also stay focused on what’s important: that with Meghan’s (and our) help, Smart Works will continue to offer free professional clothing and job counseling to unemployed women.
