First Royal Painting of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle


Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s ‘FIRST portrait painting’ – and it’s VERY different

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been treated to a very special engagement present.

The newly engaged lovebirds are known to have an avid interest in modern art.

And now, as an early gift, artist Nathan Wyburn – who has previously depicted Mariah Carey out of glitter and Donald Trump out of tacos – has painted a portrait of the pair “cleaned” out of a dirty carpet.

Commissioned by Carpet Stain Remover maker Dr Beckmann, the portrait, called “Love Cleans Up”, measures a massive 12ft x 16ft and involved Wyburn using the award-winning product to carve through coffee, wine and muds stains.

The fantastic artwork was completed in just a day and Wyburn used three bottles of the Dr Beckmann product – which has been awarded Which? Magazine Best Buy for four years in a row.

It is believed the couple love art as 33-year-old Harry surprised 36-year-old Meghan by giving her Van Donna’s “Everybody Needs Somebody To Love”, in the early days of their relationship.

Susan Fermor, a Dr Beckmann spokeswoman, said: “We recently launched a new curved brush for our Carpet Stain Remover product, so what better way to showcase its effectiveness than by creating our very own piece of carpet art.

“We’re delighted Nathan opted to create Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and really pleased with the end product. If the couple wants it for their abode at Nottingham Cottage, they’re more than welcome to have it!”

Talking about the portrait, artist Nathan added: “It’s been a hugely exciting project to work on – usually I work by adding unusual products to a base layer, but this piece is unique as it involves me reversing this process and removing to create my subject.

“I chose to depict Prince Harry and Meghan Markle because not only are they big fans of modern art, but their story shows us once again that love is clean and has the power to bring anyone together, even if they come from different continents.

“I was a bit sceptical when Dr Beckmann first approached me, but the product really does live up to its award-winning credentials – it made light work of the stains I applied to the carpet and I’m delighted with the final piece.”

Dr Beckmann Carpet Stain Remover is available from all major supermarkets and costs £3.50.

The ex-US actress and prince are due to tie the knot on May 19 at Windsor Castle.
