When you have the opportunity to ask for whatever you want, why wouldn’t you play that out to your advantage and make sure you’re asking for the best of the very best? Look no further, ladies, for the royally-approved pieces and products that should be on your wish list this Holiday season.
Meghan Markle chose Club Monaco black leather gloves for her second Christmas at Sandringham, and the gloves still just won’t stay in stock.
02 Shoulder Bag
The Princess of Wales has an incredible handbag collection that spans many years. One brand she repeatedly turns to is Mulberry and it’s easy to see why. The British heritage label is synonymous with style and their bags are universally known as classic. Small yet perfectly formed, the Mulberry Small Amberley Leather Shoulder Bag is one of her recent favorites and it’s the kind of style that would go with pretty much anything.
Meghan was well aware of the need to maintain her regal appearance in London, and she steered clear of eye-catching PVC coats or casual puffers that might attract undue attention. Instead, she opted for timeless outerwear with understated yet significant details. Meghan had a keen eye for the finer features, such as a discreet built-in belt or the elegant buttons adorning her coats. Among her preferred styles, the double-breasted Mackage Elodie Navy Wool Coat has been one of my favorite solid-colored hue coats to date.
If you’re a fan of fragrances, opt for the Jo Malone Orange Blossom Cologne. The floral and woody scent is one that Kate, who famously scented Westminster Abbey on her wedding day with the perfumer’s Orange Blossom candles, loves.
The Duchess of Sussex spent many of her acting years filming Suits in Toronto, where Canadian luxury jeweler Birks quickly became a shopping go-to. She has typically reserved wearing their bijoux for dressier engagements and accessorized with the Pétale Stud Earrings at the 2018 Royal Ascot Races.
For beauty enthusiasts, Urban Decay’s beloved Naked Palette is rumored to be one of Kate’s favorites. The Mini Naked 3 Eyeshadow Palette is a solid and compact choice, capable of everything from a nighttime smokey eye to an everyday neutral look – which the Princess of Wales is known for.
Meghan Markle has remained a dedicated aficionado of Sarah Flint footwear since her Suits days. Her love for these shoes transcends time, from the iconic Perfect Pump to the chic strappy sandals and the comfortable Natalie flat. A standout moment was when Meghan sported the Natalie flat during her inaugural official engagement with her now-husband at the 2017 Invictus Games, leaving a lasting impression. Meghan’s choice was the exquisite Saddle Vachetta color, but it’s worth noting that this beloved shoe is available in an array of captivating shades and patterns to suit your unique style.
The Duchess of Cambridge’s shoes remained discreet in her 40th birthday portraits by Paolo Roversi, but it’s a safe bet that Kate gracefully complemented her trio of custom Alexander McQueen gowns with the timeless Gianvito Rossi 105 pumps. These iconic point-toe heels, distinguished by their graceful stiletto heels and cushioned insoles for utmost comfort, have evolved into the Duchess’s trusted footwear of choice. However, for those who follow royal fashion closely, it’s evident that this silhouette is a stylish departure from the platform heels that marked Kate’s initial foray into the world of royal style.
Throughout the years, Meghan has flawlessly embraced the charm of the nude lip, with Charlotte Tilbury standing out as one of her cherished lipstick brands. Among her favorites, the “Very Victoria” shade takes the spotlight—a captivating taupe nude. It’s been said that Meghan chose this very shade for her engagement photoshoot, making it an ideal choice for your holiday best.
10 Cashmere Sweater
The Duchess of Cambridge has quite the enviable wardrobe. She has worn cardigans with midi skirts, cable knits with skinny jeans, boleros with dresses, and turtlenecks with army jackets – just to name a few of her favorite combos. A favorite of mine that she debuted this year was this this chic tan Ralph Lauren Collection Cashmere Crewneck Sweater – a closet staple that you can wear for years to come.
