Makeup-free royals: when Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle and other ladies show off their natural beauty

Hello! Logo By hello of Hello! | Slide 1 of 7: The Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex are some of the most photographed women in the world, so it's no wonder they've mastered the art of doing flawless makeup or have their favourite MUAs on speed dial. Looking picture perfect is part of the job, after all! But even when they have access to some of the best artists in the industry, our favourite royal ladies show it's ok to leave the palace without any war paint – or at least, with just a little brushed on.

Before becoming a Duchess, Meghan used to share makeup free selfies on her Instagram page and blog The Tig, showing off her natural beauty.

The former actress has also previously told Allure: "For castings, I was labelled 'ethnically ambiguous'. Was I Latina? Sephardic? 'Exotic Caucasian'? Add the freckles to the mix and it created quite the conundrum. To this day, my pet peeve is when my skin tone is changed and my freckles are airbrushed out of a photo shoot." Meghan also revealed that her dad once said to her that "a face without freckles is a night without stars".
