    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have spent the past two days in Ireland on their first official royal tour as Duke and Duchess of Sussex – and to say they have been living their best lives would be a massive understatement.

    The two-day mini moon has been jam-packed, marking Prince Harry’s first ever time to Ireland, involving garden parties, a coding session, a visit to Trinity College and of course a couple of cuddles with the President of Ireland’s dogs.

    One of the appointments involved meeting Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar in Dublin, but while it was one of the most highly-anticipated of their meetings, Meghan stole the show early on, showcasing her hidden talent.

    As the couple entered the Prime Minister’s office, they had to sign the guest book, giving Meghan the opportunity to show off her calligraphy skills.

    That’s right. It turns out the 36-year-old Duchess was actually a freelance calligrapher before becoming an actress, meaning that she boasts an enviable signature.


    According to Town & Country, the former Suits star worked part-time teaching calligraphy at Paper Source, a stationery shop in Beverly Hills, even freelancing on celebrity wedding invitations.

    ‘I never sign big enough,’ Prince Harry reportedly said of his own signature during the trip, before complimenting Meghan on hers, telling her, ‘Yours is much nicer than mine.’

    Looks like she won’t have to learn calligraphy in her princess lessons then!
