    Ivanka Trump is a controversial figure, publicly ridiculed and made unwelcome from joining women-led movements like the Time’s Up campaign after condoning and even promoting her father’s polices.

    It was even reported that the 37-year-old has started exercising in the dark to avoid being recognised and targeted.

    There was a time however when Ivanka wasn’t considered such a divisive figure. In fact, once upon a time, Ivanka Trump boasted a lot of fans, one of whom being the now Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle.

    That’s right. According to Andrew Morton’s biography, Meghan: A Hollywood Princess, the former Suits actress ‘idolised’ Ivanka Trump, even writing a blog post dedicated to her in her now-discontinued blog, The Tig.

    ‘When we have drinks, I will make sure I order whatever she does,’ Meghan posted about their potential meeting. ‘Because this woman seems to have the formula for success (and happiness) down pat.’

    We don’t know if these drinks ever took place, but we’re not sure whether Meghan would write a blog post about the First Daughter and Assistant to the President now.

    The Duchess of Sussex will potentially be seeing Ivanka this weekend however, as both women and Prince Harry are on the guest list at the wedding of their mutual friend Misha Nonoo.

    Misha’s wedding is being held this weekend in Rome, with celebrities from Karlie Kloss to Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom in attendance.

    ‘Misha helped introduce Harry to Meghan and the two women are the best of friends,’ a source told Fabulous Online. ‘Meghan wasn’t going to miss her wedding for the world.They’ve left Archie at home but it’s only for a couple of days and they will be back on Saturday.’

    Congratulations to Misha Nonoo, and wishing Prince Harry and Meghan Markle a lovely weekend in Rome!
