Bride-to-be Meghan Markle, will be learning some Karate skills, and has reportedly hired Michael Jackson’s former bodyguard to learn how to defend herself.
According to TMZ, Matt Fiddes, a celebrity security adviser and trainer, who was a former bodyguard to late Pop king Michael Jackson, will teach the Suits actress martial arts and self-defense ahead of her wedding in May 2018.
Matt’s a natural fit for Meghan. He owns one of the biggest martial arts franchises in the world — Matt Fiddes Martial Arts — and works with tons of celebs, including Tom Cruise.
He’s also got close ties with the Royal Family — MJ was tight with Princess Diana, and he became part of her inner circle. Plus … he’s a Brit, so he’ll be geographically desirable.
We’re told Meghan’s endgame is not about fitness — sources close to Matt tell us Meghan hired him specifically to learn self-defense.
