Meghan Markle's 'Healthy Hair' Subject of Bizarre Eurovision Song Entry

Meghan Markle has been referenced in a bizarre pop song by a Serbian artist that asks the secret to her "healthy hair."

"In Corpore Sano," about the Duchess of Sussex's beauty regime, has earned Konstrakta a spot in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022, in Turin, Italy, in May.

The annual tournament sees pop artists, including some eccentric and quirky acts, compete against each other for approval by judging panels across the continent.

It is a major event across the continent, including Britain, where people are known to have Eurovision parties with friends.

Konstrakta's lyrics are in Serbian but a translation on the song's video reads: "What is the secret behind Meghan Markle's healthy hair?

"What could be the secret? I think that secret is the deep hydration. As they say, one's skin and hair reveal everything clearly."

It added: "Because as an artist, she has to be healthy."

Konstrakta is pictured in the white uniform of a worker at a health spa and washes her hands in a basin as she sings the lyrics.

She will perform the left-of-field single during the Eurovision semi-finals on Thursday, May 12.

This is not the first time Meghan's hair has taken center stage after an internal dispute within the royal family about her wedding day tiara.

According to biography Finding Freedom, Meghan wanted to try on the piece during a hair trial with her New York stylist Serge Normant, but struggled to get access from Angela Kelly, Queen Elizabeth II's dresser.

The incident led to an argument between Prince Harry and the royal staffer.

Authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand wrote: "What followed between the prince and Angela was a heated exchange that was far from the typical restraint expected.

"According to a source, Harry had no problem confronting the issue head on. 'He was fed up,' said the aide."

They added: "In the end, Harry had to speak to his grandmother about the situation."

Meghan's styling has long been important to the duchess, who privately said it was the only aspect of her life where she had any control in 2018.

An email published in November during her privacy and copyright lawsuit against the Mail on Sunday disputed suggestions online by Scobie that she had a stylist.

The email read: "You know how personally frustrating I find the 'stylist' narrative (as it's the only thing I seem to still have any control over—my personal styling) but given we are being asked to cooperate with this evidently authoritative biography I need to share I will not be comfortable doing so if this person is considered an authority and is tweeting the below."

The exchange was part of discussions about whether or not to contribute to Finding Freedom.

Ultimately, the duchess authorized her communications secretary, Jason Knauf, to give at least some information to Scobie and Durand.
