Because nothing gets your point across quite like an emoji or two

It's hard to believe that the royal wedding was almost two months ago now.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, were married in a beautiful ceremony towards the end of May, with all of the key members of the royal family present.

We already knew the royals have their own WhatsApp group and are big fans of emojis, so it's really no surprise to learn that Meghan Markle is too.

When asking her friend to make her up for her big day, Meghan did so in the most modern way possible: through the art of emoji. And you can probably guess the ones she chose.

Daniel Martin, Meghan's close friend and make-up artist for the occasion, recently revealed on Good Morning America the text she sent him ahead of the wedding.

'Hey – what are you doing May 19th?' she wrote next to the bride and groom emojis. 'I was like, "OK, yeah, whatever you need,' Daniel said.


As one might expect, Meghan was very calm and collected on the morning of her wedding day.

'We had breakfast. Guy, her dog, was with us [and] we were playing around with him,' the make-up artist added. 'It was a very chill morning.

'Her mom was there, which was amazing.'

If you ask us, emoji is definitely the best way to let your friend know you're getting married – and that you want them involved.
