Meghan Markle connected her makeup artist to psychic Richard Win, who charges $250 per session and who apparently maintains a roster of high-profile clients.
It may have been difficult for even a psychic to see how successful Meghan Markle was to become.
The "Suits" star has had a strong acting career and is now preparing to enter Britain's royal family as her wedding to Prince Harry is scheduled for May 19. Meanwhile, Markle's makeup artist, the Los Angeles-based Spencer Barnes, revealed in an Instagram post that his high-profile client recommended a psychic for him to use.
Today I want to take a moment to thank this beautiful soul, #MeghanMarkle for introducing me to someone who has become a powerful friend over the last couple years. His name is Richard Win. He is 72 years old and a gifted intuitive. He has proved to be a guiding light and a key support in helping me move an important project from the back burner to the front line. He is now working with me regularly in a developmental creative role. If you've never sat down for an hour or two with a truly gifted psychic - it only takes a few minutes to recognize that Richard is the real deal, in service to the light. #emo#77iP###emo#8J+RgQ==###emo#77iP## Ultimately, we all get to make our own decisions as we blaze forward on our chosen paths, but at times - an illuminated perspective is just what we need to assist us in navigating those paths with greater confidence, focus & clarity. Private message me & I may be willing to connect you for a personal reading of your own. Thanks again Meghan - we are all cheering you on as your magical, real-life fairytale story unfolds! #spencerbarnesmakeup #iseebeauty #emo#4oCi## Ms Markle's hair by @michaelhair
In his post, Barnes thanks Markle "for introducing me to someone who has become a powerful friend over the last couple years. His name is Richard Win."
Barnes' post did not make it clear whether Markle had used Richard Win for his psychic ability or she knew him in another context and decided to connect the two.
The Observer sent a direct message to Barnes over Instagram to find out more about Win. Barnes told the Observer that his psychic usually charges $250 a session but would offer a discounted rate of $200 if a client mentioned the makeup artist's name.
The 72-year-old Win has no online presence "because he has so many high-profile clients and their privacy is important to him" Barnes told the Observer.
Barnes notes in his post that although everyone eventually has power over their destiny and decisions, "at times — an illuminated perspective is just what we need to assist us in navigating those paths with greater confidence, focus & clarity."
He wrote that Win "proved to be a guiding light and a key support in helping me" and called his psychic "the real deal."
Barnes also seemed to imply in his post that he would not be doing Markle's makeup for her wedding, despite his work with celebrities like Julianne Hough and Laura Prepon, who are featured on his Instagram account.
Although it is not known what Win may see about Markle's impending marriage to Prince Harry, other psychics have weighed in.
Australian psychic Kerrie Erwin appeared on television last year shortly after the couple announced their engagement in November. While Erwin predicted a royal pregnancy for Markle within the next year, she does not see the marriage as long-lasting. She says that the couple will be together for "maybe five years," citing strong individual personalities.
