If there’s one thing we all know, it’s that there are a few beauty secrets floating about Buckingham Palace. While the Royal Family are not permitted to share which products and brands they align with, there have been a few reports that give us a clue as to which products they swear by.
When looking to overhaul your beauty stash, there’s nothing quite legitimate than a product that has had the Royal Stamp of Approval.
Despite the Queen being notoriously private when it comes to divulging her beauty secrets, experts close to the Duchess of Cambridge and Duchess of Sussex have revealed some of their can’t-live-without-products.
From Kate Middleton’s favourite eyeshadow palette and Meghan Markle’s must-have concealer to the nail polish loved by the Queen for 28 years, we’ve rounded up the best royal-approved beauty products so you can enjoy your own royal makeover.
According to a 2015 report by The Mirror, a source close to the royal confirmed that the neutral shades palette was her go-to to achieve her immaculate eye makeup. She’s famous for doing her own makeup - even on her wedding day - and she loves to emphasise her eyes with smoky browns and taupes. The palette has been one of Urban Decay’s best selling products.
Sadly it has been discontinued, but the Naked 2 Palette is just as good and full of universally flattering neutrals.

In an interview with The Lady Loves Couture back in 2017, Meghan Markle said her all-time favourite product was YSL Touche Eclat Concealer because “it blends, it’s compact, and if you’ve worked a 17-hour day and have nothing else on, you will still look relatively alive. Relatively.” The concealer pen has been a firm favourite among beauty addicts and it seems it’s a staple for the royal favourite.
