Why Kate Middleton and Queen Elizabeth are never seen wearing this beauty staple.


There are quite a few number of rules you need to follow if you’re a member of the royal family. These rules apply even to your appearance and dress.

Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, and Queen Elizabeth always seem with exemplary clothes and flawless hair and makeup. Still, there is one thing that you will never see them wearing.

The Duchess of Cambridge and the Queen never wear coloured nail polish.

According to OK! Magazine, natural looking nails are a Royal etiquette and coloured nail polish and fake nails are inappropriate when it comes to royal etiquette.

Most probably one of the most visible signs that Meghan Markle is about to become a member of the Royal family is that when she appeared at the Invictus Games with Prince Harry. She indeed sported a perfect manicure without colour.

However, some Royal experts say that women are actually allowed to wear barely noticeable nude colour shades. Well, this is something that Queen of England, Elizabeth has been taking advantage of for decades.

For over thirty years Queen Elizabeth has worn a shade called “ballet slippers”. It was introduced by the British nail polish brand, Essie. According to the company’s website, Essie Weingarten launched the brand in 1981, and it was just a year later that Her Majesty started wearing her natural shades.

Queen Elizabeth often wears gloves to cover her hands.

The website also claims that Queen Elizabeth’s hairdresser sent ‘Essie’ a letter asking her for the polish. The reports say it was because she wouldn’t wear anything else. The Queen’s colour of choice is a pale pink and was also worn by the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate on her wedding day.

Kate Middleton is indeed a fashion and beauty icon, with her perfect skin and gorgeous hair. Not to forget, the labels she wears instantly become household names.
