Prince Harry’s big painting spend confirmed

Prince Harry splashed out thousands on a painting shortly before he went public with his ‘Suits’ star girlfriend Meghan Markle.

The 32-year-old royal was rumoured to have splashed out on a Van Donna piece called Everybody Needs Somebody in October 2016, and it has now been confirmed that he did buy the artwork shortly before his relationship with Meghan Markle went public.

A local art collector told PEOPLE magazine: “Harry is one of the regulars in the area and regularly goes into the shops and galleries with his bodyguard, kind of in stealth mode.

“He was in the gallery for a little while and liked a few things, then settled on the Van Donna. He said he was looking for something for ‘an important person.’

“It was literally just before anyone heard about Meghan — literally just days before it was announced he was going out with her.”

Van Donna – whose name is a pseudonym made up of a mixture of Van Gogh and Madonna’s monikers – confirmed last week that Harry purchased one of her paintings.

She wrote on Twitter: “OMG! So excited that Harry has acquired my paintings for his collection! Yay!!! (sic)”

Harry made the purchase from a VIP section of Walton Fine Arts gallery in Kensington, west London.

Как принц Гарри ухаживал за Меган Маркл?

Какие подарки внук королевы дарил своей возлюбленной?

Несмотря на то, что принц Гарри старается скрывать свою личную жизнь от прессы, недавно в сети появилась информация о том, какие подарки делал сын принцессы Дианы Меган Маркл во время своих ухаживаний. В частности, один из инсайдеров сообщил таблоиду People, что осенью прошлого года внук королевы Елизаветы II потратил внушительную сумму на приобретение произведений искусства, одним из которых стал диптих британского художника Van Donna, на одной части которого изображены девочка и мальчик, держащиеся за руки, на другой — надпись «Каждому нужно кого-то любить». «Принц Гарри хотел сделать Меган необычный подарок, который бы напоминал ей о нем. Поэтому он решил разделить эти картины, чтобы одна часть диптиха висела в его комнате, а другой бы Меган украсила свою квартиру в Торонто», — сообщил источник, близкий к королевской семье.

While it has not been confirmed the painting was for Markle, the prince reportedly asked whether the artwork could be “split in half” to be shared between two people.
