Being a member of the Royal family comes with all sorts of perks! The family lives a life of privilege, with staff that caters to their every need. When we think of the Royals, we imagine people waiting on them hand and foot, doing everything from bringing them their morning coffee to fluffing their pillows before they get in bed. The Royals always look perfect, especially the women, so naturally, we assume that their hair and makeup is done by professionals when they make an appearance. So, is it true that Meghan Markle actually does her own hair and makeup for Royal engagements?

Meghan is very independent

As it turns out, Meghan does not rely on staff members to make sure she looks perfectly put together when she steps out in public! Her close friends recently revealed that the Duchess prefers to do her own hair and apply her own makeup, even for events where she knows photographers will be present. The one exception was her wedding, where she had a hairdresser and makeup artist help her to achieve her lovely bridal look. Since then, however, Meghan has been taking things into her own hands.

Why is Meghan so down to earth?

Meghan was extremely independent before she even met Prince Harry, and becoming a member of the Royal family hasn’t changed who she is! The new Duchess of Sussex famously loves to cook, and she hasn’t given that up! Meghan enjoys cooking for her husband every night, and it doesn’t look like that will stop anytime soon. Harry is extremely down to earth as well, which is probably why they are so perfect for each other!

What do her friends have to say?

Close friends of Meghan say that there are certain aspects of her life that she isn’t willing to abandon. Meghan apparently does her own manicures, and even chooses her own outfits for appearances. Being an actress for so many years most likely allowed her to learn many hair, makeup, and even clothing tricks, so it is not a huge surprise that Meghan enjoys doing these things on her own.

Meghan always looks flawless, and it is no secret that she prefers a natural, easy look wherever she goes. When she is not wearing her hair in her usual messy bun, a look that she pulls off perfectly, Meghan can be seen with loose waves, or even a slicked back ponytail. Her makeup compliments her natural beauty, and she does not overdo it. Subtle eyeshadow, pale blush, and natural lip color are all that the Duchess needs to look her best.

A low maintenance duchess

It would appear that Meghan and Harry are an easygoing, laid back couple who so many people can relate to! Although they may have an address at Kensington Palace, the Duke and Duchess enjoy living a simple life. They have a hand in everything, from walking their dogs to decorating their own home. Meghan has certainly stayed true to herself since marrying into the Royal family, and although she does have personal assistants who help her with certain things, she is known for being relatively self-sufficient.

The perfect couple

Meghan and Harry are so down to earth that they have even been known to enjoy a meal or a drink at London pubs from time to time! It is evident from how they are observed at events that they truly enjoy talking to people and getting to know members of the public. Royal fans love them even more for how personable they are, it is refreshing to know that they are so relatable. Now we know that at the same time that we are making our pot of morning coffee, Duchess Meghan is doing the exact same thing for herself!
