The Crown is back for Season Two and it all drops on Netflix tomorrow! To say we’re excited to see Claire Foy and Matt Smith unfold the next chapter of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip’s complicated relationship would be, of course, a huge understatement.

But along with all the palace drama and no doubt, all of the feels as we see Elizabeth struggle to balance her role as Monarch with that of a sister, wife and mother, we also can’t wait for the return of all that glamour. The costumes, the crowns and yep, the regal beauty looks—classic and understated, yet always flawless.

So since it’s not all just fiction, we decided to do our homework and dig out all the IRL products loved by the women of the Royal Family. From the Queen’s favourite nail polish and Princess Diana’s blue eyeliner, to Meghan Markle's hair oil and Kate Middleton's skin secret, here’s how to recreate those Royal beauty moments for yourself.

Queen Elizabeth II’s Nail Polish

We love that the Queen has a nail polish obsession just like us. You know when you find a shade you love, and plan to wear it forever more? Well that’s what happened in 1989 when the Queen discovered Essie Ballet Slippers. A delicate pale pink, Her Majesty has reportedly worn the shade ever since.

Essie Ballet Slippers, £7.99

Meghan Markle’s Hair Oil

Meghan Markle might be a newcomer to the Royal Family but she’s packing beauty secrets galore, and marvellously, they’re all pretty reasonable for those of us without princess budgets. To keep her tresses shiny the actress loves a Wella hair oil, telling Beauty Banter: “It smells like vacation and makes your hair slippery and touchable.”

Wella Professional Oil Reflections Luminous Smoothing Oil, £7.11

Queen Elizabeth II’s Lipstick

Elizabeth Arden has held a Royal Warrant (certification that they supply products to the Royal Family) since 1962, and HRH has been spotted topping up her lippy with the Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick Matte Finish Extension in Bold Red. Since she also likes a pink hue, so it’s worth trying the Coral Crush shade from the same range.

Princess Diana’s Eyeliner

Diana’s love of blue eyeliner was well documented, and since the trend has come back around again it’s pretty handy that you can still buy the exact same shade. Elizabeth Arden used to call the shade Navy, but has since updated the name to Sapphire, keeping the colour identical.

Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Precision Glide Eye Liner in Sapphire, £15.30

Kate Middleton’s Face Oil

There’s no doubt that the Duchess of Cambridge has great skin, and apparently the secret to her glow is Trilogy’s rosehip oil. A beauty industry favourite, rosehip is great for hydrating parched skin, fighting signs of ageing and also soothing any inflammation.
