While visiting Brinsworth House on Tuesday, the Duchess of Sussex sat down with residents (all entertainment industry veterans) for arts and crafts. Markle created a paper ornament and signed it, “Merry Christmas, Love, Meghan”—and the calligraphy is stunning.
This should come as no surprise, though: The duchess moonlighted as a calligrapher during her acting days, and the special handwriting says a lot about her as a person.
For one, the single name in her signature, “Meghan,” denotes the need for more privacy, according to forensic handwriting expert Sheila Lowe, who spoke to Town & Country about Markle’s calligraphy skills earlier this year.
It also aligns the duchess with her husband, Prince Harry, who signs just his first name during royal engagements and in visitor guestbooks.
