Meghan Markle, the now Duchess of Sussex since her marriage to Prince Harry, visited the Maltese Islands in the fall of 2015.
I recently spent a good amount of time in Malta myself, and I couldn’t help but look up what the Duchess did on her trip there almost six years ago.
It’s said that Meghan’s great-great-Grandmother, Mary, was Maltese and lived in Sliema, a popular neighbourhood in Malta. Quite funny that I lived in Sliema too for a bit and my name is also Mary!
Meghan was not only a popular (Suits) actress, but she also blogged about travel, food and lifestyle. Her popular blog, ‘The Tig’ and its Instagram account had quite the following.
So what did Meghan do in Malta? I did my research and retraced this stylish lady’s footsteps through Malta and Gozo, which was a pretty fun thing to do! I’ve documented what it was like to follow in her shoes here.
I’ve also added a bit of a twist and included some of my own recommendations for enjoyable experiences in Malta. Let’s start with her visit to the capital.
Meghan in Valletta
First off, Meghan stayed at Casa Ellul in Valletta, the capital of Malta. Here’s what she said about it:
“Check into the absolutely perfect boutique hotel, Casa Ellul – a converted home, which has eight bespoke rooms each of perfect modernized tradition. Think Calvin Klein meets Game of Thrones – chic interiors and styling within a castle-like exterior. Three-story suites with their own private rooftop deck and hot tub make this property one of my favorite worldwide. Plus, there’s an incredible wine bar downstairs only a stones throw to town center, making it the perfect pied-à-terre for your stay.”
