People the world over have always admired the stature, privilege, and role of real-life royal family members. For the lady members of the royal family, beauty has always been their most praised trait even if their intellectual gifts, philantrophic work, and actual contributions to various advocacies are far more worth the adoration.
Before COVID-19 forced people to delay travel and stay home, every second Saturday of June, thousands of people flock to London to catch a glimpse of the Windsors. Traditionally, the Queen and the rest of the Royal Family would be seen on the balcony ofBuckingham Palace as part of the long ceremony called Trooping the Colour. Thousands of curious tourists and localsawait the appearance of the Royals from behind the historic metal fences and gates of the palace, official London residence of the sovereign of the United Kingdom.
These days, people are in awe of the beauty of Kate Middleton, also referred to as the Duchess of Cambridge and wife of Prince William, the son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana. For a time, people were also enamored by the charm of the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, who has since left her royal duties to live back in the United States together with her husband, Prince Harry. The Queen, of course, during her youth, was also highly admired for her beauty as well as her intelligence.
So, what royal secrets do these ladies keep? How do they look so, for lack of a word, perfect in their public appearances? The royal ladies follow these simple yet scientifically proven ways of retaining beauty that even “commoners” can emulate and benefit from:
Hydration for Her Royal Highness
When asked about their beauty secrets, many of the women from the Royal Family attribute their good skin to adequate hydration. It is common knowledge that all people, not just those with “royal blood”, should drink at least eight glasses of water every day. Water helps all organs of the body to function well. Human skin is actually the largest organ of the body and lack of hydration will cause it to become dry, flaky, and tight. To ensure that they have hydrated and well-moisturized skin, the Duchess of Cambridge and other ladies in the Queen’s court make sure to drink enough water.
Playing sports is also part of their beauty regimen since it helps relieve stress, improves blood circulation, and helps bring oxygen and other nutrients needed by the skin.Despite their regal appearance and flawless aura, the ladies of the Royal Family are known to be keen sportswomen. Before becoming Prince William’s wife, Kate Middleton was actually an avid athlete who played tennis and field hockey. She was even part of her school’s rowing and swimming team. Meghan Markle also loves football and has trained in kickboxing. Their husbands, Prince William and Prince Harry, respectively, play football and are very active fans of UEFA, the sports premier league. They also engage in the horse-riding team sport called polo, otherwise known as the sport of kings.
After all that sweat and workout, the royals also know how to get their beauty rest. Like real-life Sleeping Beauties, they make sure to get at least eight hours of sleep every night except during seasons that require a number of royal duties, or when they travel. Sleeping contributes to skin repair and rejuvenation, giving them that youthful glow and flawless appeal.
Food Fit for a Queen
The ladies of the royal court are also known to “eat clean”, meaning they avoid food that contains excessive saturated fat, artificial ingredients, sugars, and other unhealthy substances. Normally, they eat plenty of vegetables and fruits, good quality fish, and small portions of meat, occasionally. While they can eat just about anything and everything that is fit for a queen or princess, they still discipline themselves and eat healthy most of the time.
Their beauty, however, is not a matter of vanity but more a part of their royal duties. As a member of the royal family, they have centuries-old traditions and practices to uphold such as appearing in public with dignity and honor. As public figures and symbols of the United Kingdom’s sovereignty and domain, they make every effort to remain elegant, highly respectable, and worthy of admiration by the English people and their other subjects in the Commonwealth.Knowing this, they take every step needed to remain fit and healthy given their hectic schedule of public engagements in the UK and overseas. In everything they do, they make it a point to live as the crowning beauties of their beloved kingdom.
