Unlike many celebrities, you’ll never see a picture of members of the British Royal family looking bedraggled on a day off. In fact, beauty standards are so high for the Royals that the women are expected to look presentable at all times. With that in mind, we’ve looked into some of the requirements and favourite products of the Queen and various princesses and thought we’d share some suggestions for alternative products for them (and you) to try!
An anonymous source once confirmed that Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has expressed a liking for rosehip oil, so we’d recommend Elemis Superfood Facial Oil. It contains rosehip, as well as a blend of oils from broccoli seed, flaxseed, Daikon radish, cucumber, macadamia and others, which combine to deeply nourish and hydrates, leaving skin soft and supple with a healthy, radiant glow.
While the female royals are expected to keep their nails short and manicured, you won’t see them sporting any loud colours. The Queen’s favourite nail polish is a pinky-nude, and many of the younger members of the family follow suit. The shade “Rehab” from Orly is a peach nude cream colour with advanced oxygen technology. Oxygen and hydration penetrate to the nail allowing it to stay moisturised, and would be a perfect polish for the ladies of the Royal family.
Megan Markle has said in the past that she’s a lip balm devotee and has spent years searching for the perfect, buttery formula for keeping her lips soft and supple. We’d suggest that she try Elemis’ Ultra-Conditioning Lip Balm, which will instantly hydrate the lips with a biolipid complex and mango butter oil.
When it comes to hair, Princess Eugenie has managed to master both the soft and voluminous curl and the sleek bob, both of which are smoothed to perfection. She achieves this with a smoothing oil, so we’d recommend she try Decleor Aroma Nutrition Satin Softening Dry Oil, which uses a blend including camelia and sweet almond oils to wrangle any flyaways.
Camilla, officially the Princess of Wales (although she doesn’t use that title, feeling it’s too strongly connected with Charles’ ex-wife Princess Diana) is a huge fan of the outdoors, spending her days gardening or tending to her horses. She’s got great skin for a woman in her 70’s and we’d recommend this facial sunscreen from Dermalogica to both protect her skin from the sun and prevent future signs of skin damage.
