TALK OF THE TOWN: Harry bags a shock role… as Meghan’s secret stylist

Most husbands do everything they can to avoid shopping for clothes with their wives, but Prince Harry has proved a surprising exception. I’m told he’s become Meghan’s secret stylist, personally helping her choose outfits for her new life as a Royal.

Of course, unlike most men, Harry isn’t being dragged around Primark on Oxford Street all day. His shopping trips with his new bride consist of having high-end designers visit them at Kensington Palace.

And according to well-placed sources in the fashion industry, Harry has been keenly giving tips for her new fit-for-a-duchess wardrobe.

‘Meghan is always asking Harry’s opinion. She really wants his views,’ said one source.

‘He gives his views on what he thinks looks best, rather than helping her follow Royal protocol on hemlines or anything like that. The joke is that Harry is Meghan’s surprise stylist.’

Representatives from Stella McCartney have been drafted in to design several dresses for Meghan after the elegant halterneck gown she wore by the designer for her evening wedding reception proved to be a fashion hit. Says my source: ‘The special projects team at Stella McCartney are working on a few more outfits for Meghan, and Harry always comes to design meetings and fittings to give his opinions on the looks.’

Harry’s new influence may well be in evidence on Thursday when the Duchess of Sussex will join the Queen to officially open the new Mersey Gateway Bridge in Cheshire. 

My Royal moles also tell me two British princesses are about to descend on Ibiza for a hen party like no other. 

I hear Princess Beatrice has enlisted the services of a swanky villa company to find the ultimate party palace on the island, so her sister Eugenie can enjoy one last blow-out before marrying Jack Brooksbank in October.

Eugenie, 28, developed a love of ‘rahving’ (posh raving) while at Newcastle University. 

Let’s hope she’s still got it!
