The former Suits star was impressed with Ivanka Trump’s style and even agreed to a dinner date, royal author Andrew Morton has revealed in Meghan: A Hollywood Princess.
Mr Morton, who also wrote a biography of Princess Diana, said: “Before Donald Trump had entered the race for the presidency, one of [Meghan’s] female idols was businesswoman Ivanka Trump, who had her own jewellery and clothing line.”
Before she married Prince Harry, Meghan Markle had a lifestyle blog called The Tig where she discussed recipes, travel, fashion and politics.
Mr Morton added: ”She was thrilled when Ivanka agreed to fill in her simple questionnaire for Tig Talk.
“Don’t get me started on her jewellery collection: the late-night ‘window shopping’ I have done on my computer”

“More thrilled when she accepted her invitation to meet for drinks and dinner the next time Meghan was in New York.”
The royal author used a snippet from The Tig to back up his claim.
Meghan drooled over the “beautiful designs” of Ivanka’s jewellery collection in a blog post.
The Duchess wrote: “Don’t get me started on her jewellery collection: the late-night ‘window shopping’ I have done on my computer, snuggled up in my bed with a glass of wine, staring longingly at the beautiful designs.
“And there are the shoes, the home collection, the clothing and the natural extension of her brand with a kids’ collection – a smart choice given that she is now a proud mama.
“When we have drinks, I will make sure I order whatever she does – because this woman seems to have the formula for success (and happiness) down pat.”
US President Trump’s second child Ivanka is a mum-of-three and a fashion designer, author and reality television personality.
Her mother is model Ivana Trump, the US President’s first wife.
