Meghan Markle surprised best friend and makeup artist Daniel Martin on his birthday during her trip to New York – The Sun

MEGHAN Markle’s friend and makeup artist Daniel Martin celebrated his birthday over the weekend – and the Duchess herself dropped by to celebrate.

The 38-year-old royal flew to New York on Thursday, to support pal Serena Williams during the US Open.

And she couldn’t resist the opportunity to surprise Daniel, who shared his gratitude for his friend on Instagram.

Posting a snap of his birthday cupcakes with his followers, the MUA wrote: “I am so overwhelmed by all of your well wishes!

“My sincerest gratitude!!Thanks to everyone for reaching out to me today and Meg, love you friend for surprising me on my special day.”

Seattle-based Daniel, has worked with Meghan, 38, for nearly a decade and was responsible for her makeup at her wedding to Prince Harry in May 2018.

He has also been very vocal in his support of the Duchess, breaking down in tears during an interview earlier this year.

He said: “What’s so frustrating is that you hear these stories and there’s no truth to them.

“It’s not the same person. In the years I’ve known her, the years I’ve worked with her, she’s never had a diva fit, never.”

Meghan flew to New York on Thursday evening, taking a commercial flight, in order to support her tennis champ friend Serena Williams.

However, in doing so she snubbed the Queen’s invite to attend the Highland Games – something that proved a disappointment according to royal insiders.

The Mail on Sunday described the move as an “outright snub” adding that Her Majesty “is ‘hurt and disappointed’ at a time when she likes to bring her friends and family together.”

The Sun revealed on Thursday that the couple — unlike other royals — had declined a visit to Balmoral to see the Queen on her Scottish holiday, saying that four-month-old Archie was too young.

Meghan’s spokeswoman also said it was because she and Harry were “too busy” with work.

She added that Meghan had taken a commercial flight — understood to be a British Airways plane from London Heathrow — and not a private jet to visit New York over the weekend.

She watched as Serena Williams lost in her final match against Canadian Bianca Andreescu in the women's singles last night.
