As always, Meghan Markle unveils new move mere hours before Kate’s comeback at Trooping the Colour, but fans UNINTERESTED: ‘We already have Catherine, future beloved Queen of England, in all her glory today’… Details in third paragraph of the news

Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle


Nacho Figueras is the latest high profile figure to show off PR gifts sent by Meghan Markle’s brand American Riviera Orchard.



The professional polo player, who is a close friend of Prince Harry, shared images of jam and dog biscuits, thought to be from the Duchess’ company, via his Instagram Stories.


He is among 50 or so people believed to have received a PR package from the fledgling lifestyle brand soft launched by the Duchess, 42, earlier this year.

An earlier batch of jam, packed in baskets of lemons, is believed to have been sent to some 50 recipients.

This is because the handwritten labels on the jars suggested that the batch contained 50 jars, with each one given a number, for example, number 11 of 50.

The previous jam sent out was strawberry, however, this latest batch is raspberry – and Nacho was lucky to receive the very exclusive new flavour, with his jar bearing a label that read: ‘2 of 2.’

Meanwhile, the dog biscuits were packaged in a large glass jar, also boasting a handwritten label thought to be in Meghan’s cursive script.

The treats, which were photographed next to Nacho’s dog Nina Iggy, are a new addition to American Riviera Orchard’s line-up of products.

Nacho’s post coincided with today’s Trooping the Colour event in London.

This year marks the second year that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not invited to the annual celebration, which marks the birthday of the reigning monarch.

It comes after claims Prince Harry, who did not meet with his father during his whirlwind visit to London last month, turned down an invitation by His Majesty to stay at a royal residence during the trip because he had ‘security concerns’.

Meghan and Harry first attended Trooping the Colour together in 2018, one month after their royal wedding in Windsor. They once again appeared on the Buckingham Palace balcony in 2019, weeks after welcoming their first child.

In 2020 and 2021, the event was scaled down due to the coronavirus pandemic. It was held at Windsor Castle, without the usual large gathering of royal family members.

But the ceremony was brought back to all its glory in 2022 to mark the late Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee.

The Duke and Duchess travelled to the UK to attend the special event – but did not join the Royal Family on the Buckingham Palace balcony, instead watching the occasion with other non-working royals in a room above the Horse Guards Parade.

Nacho’s post sharing his jam and dog biscuits follows the tenth recipient of the jam – Meghan’s friend the celebrity pilates instructor Heather Dorak – being revealed by MailOnline.

After receiving her package, Dorak posted a picture on Instagram of her two sons Noah and Cody eating the limited edition treat on toast, saying it was ‘kid tested’ and ‘mother approved’.

The Pilates Platinum owner also revealed her jam was numbered ‘7 out of 50’, as she became the tenth person to be identified as one of Meghan’s ‘jamfluencers’.

Dorak wrote in the accompanying caption: ‘Kid tested, mother approved! Thank you for the tasty homemade jam @AmericanRivieraOrchard. Love you, M!’

It comes as the Duchess of Sussex continues to try to build momentum for her new business venture American Riviera Orchard ahead of a full launch, expected later this year.

Meghan has also sent jam to at least nine other friends who have posted about it online – Kelly McKee Zajfen; Abigail Spencer; Delfina Balquier; Kris Jenner; Garcelle Beauvais; Tracy Robbins; Mindy Kaling; Chrissy Teigen; and Tracee Ellis Ross.

Earlier this year, MailOnline predicted Dorak would help with the jam launch given that she is one of Meghan’s best friends and they went skiing together earlier this year.

Dorak also attended Meghan’s royal wedding to Prince Harry at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle in May 2018 with her husband Matt Cohen.

Originally from Texas, she is now based in California where she owns six studios under the Pilates Platinum brand.

Dorak was spotted hiking with Meghan near the royal couple’s £12million mansion in Montecito, California, in May 2023 after they celebrated Prince Archie’s fourth birthday.

Dorak was a regular contributor to Meghan’s now-defunct lifestyle website The Tig, and the pair also appeared together on Meghan’s social media before she took down her accounts in the months before her wedding.

Meghan first attended Dorak’s pilates classes while acting in the TV drama Suits, and previously described them as ‘hands down the best thing you can do for your body’.

And Dorak spoke in Harry and Meghan’s Netflix documentary in December 2022, saying she was proud of the Duchess for persevering despite being turned down for acting roles before she secured her job on Suits.
