Meghan Markle’s Signature Look Strikes Again

Meghan Markle isn’t a regular royal; she’s an approachable royal and there’s one key reason why.

Other than being generally pleasant by all accounts, the 37-year-old Duchess of Sussex employs a signature look to ensure she appears friendly and overjoyed to be meeting well-wishers at all times.

Markle calls upon this “surprise brows” look during most public engagements and the effect is joyful and bemused in a sort of “come talk to me” way. Today, for instance, the duchess raised her eyebrows in excitement, cracked a big smile and waved to on-lookers as she arrived at her new patronage, Mayhew animal welfare charity. Her expression exudes warmth and charm, and hey, no wonder she caught Prince Harry’s eye.

Let it be known: “Surprise brows” are the way to go when making new friends (or just looking cute in pictures).
