Not surprisingly, the royal family is forbidden from showing any type of undergarment, which usually isn’t a hard thing to do unless we’re talking about bra straps. There’s a hack for that, too – royals either sew their bras to their dress or go for the easier option of wearing nude shapewear (aka bodysuits). This way, no matter what dress or top they have on, there will b no strap revealing.

Stick to Faux Fur
For over seven decades, Queen Elizabeth II wore many outfits made of animal fur for public events. This was a symbol of wealth and prestige, and it was the thing to do. However, since receiving harsh criticism from animal rights groups and activists in the last decades, the palace decided that from that moment on, Her Majesty would only wear faux fur.
Here, the Queen is traveling in a carriage for the State Opening of Parliament in Westminster Palace in 2019. She’s seen wearing a white faux fur coat, a stunning diamond necklace, and her astonishing crown. Although this is controversial, we must admit this looks WOW.
Don’t Be Shy with the Highlighter
This is an essential beauty tip we learned from the Duchess of Sussex – don’t shy away from eye highlighters. Meghan always looks bright-eyed and fresh, as if she just came from the makeup artist, and her secret is as simple as applying highlighter to her undereyes. She invests so little; yes, she always looks as if she has just spent hours infront of the mirror ( or with her personal makeup artist and stylist).
Meghan is seen above attending the Endeavor Fund Awards in London in 2020. As always, she’s glowing. If you want to achieve a Markle look, go for Yves Saint Laurent’s Touche Eclat.
Rules Are Meant to be Broken
Believe it or not, The Princess Royal, AKA Princess Anne, used to be quite a stunner and was considered one of the most desirable women of her time, not only because she was the Queen's daughter. You’ve got to love a princess who breaks the fashion protocol set by royalty. Princess Anne, alongside Princess Diana, was probably the biggest rule breaker when it came to choosing an outfit.
Sure, people might roll their eyes in disapproval, especially her mother, the Queen, but that didn’t stop Anne. Above, she is seen wearing a blue striped blouse, dark jeans, and a patterned blue silk scarf. Her hair is down, her makeup is very natural, and she looks fabulous.
Be a Vision in Monochrome
As much as the royals love their floral patterns, they also have a soft spot for monochrome. The late Queen Elizabeth, for example, almost always wore monochrome outfits. She almost always had a one-colored suit on, with accessories sharing the same shade, and a sophisticated small handbag to complete the look.
Above, Her Majesty is seen wearing a regal red suit and coat with a lovely matching hat, of course. Here she was visiting St. Anne’s Church in Kew in 1989. As always, note that she carries her trusty black shiny purse, her usual leather shoes, and an elegant brooch.
