Meghan Markle fangirls over Ivanka Trump in old blog post

Meghan Markle fangirl on former first daughter Ivanka Trump before embarking on royal life, a new book reports.

The Duchess of Sussex interviewed Ivanka for her now-defunct blog ‘The Tig’ in 2014, four years before her marriage to Prince Harry, page 6 reported.

As writer Tom Bower writes in his new book, ‘Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the War Between the Windsors’, now available in the UK, Markle has told her followers that she wants to be like the wife of ‘business.

“Astonishingly beautiful, no doubt, but so incredibly shrewd and intelligent that she not only carved out a place for herself under her father’s famous Trump notoriety, she undoubtedly created her own empire,” he said. she writes.

“It’s so easy to bash girls who come from privilege — to assume they’ve rested on their laurels and received accolades simply by being whimsical from the belly up,” she wrote.

“But I always remember that Ivanka was different – she didn’t dance on tables as a teenager or release pop albums. She didn’t publicly lash out, swear and get hit with DUIs.

“Instead, she was graduating from the Wharton School (cum laude, might I add), launching the Trump Hotel Collection and building her own brand.”

Her email conversation with the heiress, who once had her own line of perfumes, shoes and bags in addition to helping her father run the Trump real estate empire, left her to gush that “she does everything”.

Markle wrote: “When we have a drink, I’ll make sure to order whatever she does – because this woman seems to have the formula for success (and happiness) at her fingertips.”

She was also impressed with Ivanka’s ability to straddle “the line between letting go or looking like she stepped off a runway (or at least had time to put on some lipstick).”

Subsequently, Ivanka’s “beautiful designs” of shoes, furniture and clothing were “embraced” on “The Tig”, writes Bower.

Then starring in “Suits,” the actress also revealed plans to befriend Ivanka and hang out the next time they’re both in New York.

Just two years later, Donald J. Trump was elected president and his daughter was installed as a White House aide. On May 4, 2016, Markle denounced Trump in a television interview as “misogynistic.” Trump, in turn, called her “nasty.”
