Meghan Markle Celebrates Photographer Behind “Meaningful” Family Images in Surprise Appearance
Meghan Markle is celebrating pal Misan Harriman’s latest accomplishment. Over the weekend, the Duchess of Sussex made a surprise virtual appearance at the photographer’s TED Talk. Before Harriman got on stage, Markle took a few moments to introduce her friend and share some kind words about him.
“Our next speaker has an unmatched eye for a good photograph. I’ve experienced his talent firsthand as he’s captured many meaningful milestones for me and my family, and I know there are many others who share in this experience,” Markle said, per People.
“His lens has photographed everything from events that have changed the world, invisible moments we all desperately needed to see, along with some of the planet’s most recognizable faces,” she added. “But this was not always his path, and you might be surprised to hear not who, but what, he credits for his success. I’m so thrilled to welcome to the stage, my dear friend, Misan Harriman.”
Harriman, who’s known for taking Markle and Prince Harry’s family’s photos, thanked her on his Instagram on Sunday, writing, “The Duchess of Sussex was kind enough to introduce me unto the stage for my @ted Thank you for the support Meg 🙏🏾🙏🏾❤️,” alongside a couple pictures from the event.
Markle’s latest appearance comes just two weeks ahead of King Charles III’s official coronation on May 6. The royal ceremony is set to take place at Westminster Abbey, and while Markle will not be in attendance, her husband Harry will. On April 12, Variety reported that the king’s communications team issued a statement that read, “Buckingham Palace is pleased to confirm that The Duke of Sussex will attend the Coronation Service at Westminster Abbey on May 6th. The Duchess of Sussex will remain in California with Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.”
May 6 also marks Prince Archie‘s fourth birthday. According to People, Markle is planning “a low-key party” at their home in Montecito, CA. “They’ll have friends around them and Meghan’s mom, Doria [Ragland]. Meghan will definitely have support that weekend,” a source told the publication.
