"She resonated on so many levels, because here is someone we all know. We all have a friend that looks like her, who is marrying into this establishment that was very one way, one perspective."Markle and Prince Harry resigned from their working roles in the royal family earlier this year after being told they wouldn't be able to secure financial independence while representing the Queen.
"It was so many months of talks after so many years of challenges. And I know I haven't always gotten it right, but as far as this goes, there really was no other option," Prince Harry said at a charity dinner after the announcement."You've come to know me well enough over all these years to trust that the woman I chose as my wife upholds the same values as I do," Harry said. "And she does, she's the same woman I fell in love with." The couple were open about their struggles with royal life in the lead up to the split, with Markle admitting that "not many people have asked if I'm OK."
Martin added: "I feel like globally she resonates on so many levels, not only because of how she looks but who she is.
"And I think for me to associate myself with her, there's a responsibility. I'm very fortunate that we're authentic friends."I have to do and be as good, because we're all in this together. She gave me this incredible gift, and now it's my responsibility to share that," he added.
Martin also spoke about his experiences with racism in the industry, saying that in the past clients have assumed he was the assistant rather than the makeup artist.
"As an Asian-American with a very white, Caucasian name, they either thought I was the manicurist or Daniel Martin's assistant," he said.He added that he doesn't think there are enough leadership roles for Asian-Americans in the fashion industry. Meanwhile, he believes there's a lack of Black women in stylist roles.
