When for many a lipstick seems like a harmless thing, royals have to be very careful with what they put on their lips. The royal protocol dictates every aspect of their lives, and even such a small thing as this has its own set of rules.

Lipstick colors for the royal ladies are quite limited as they have to stick to neutrals. The only person who is allowed to disobey this rule is the Queen.
Through the years, the monarch and other women in the royal family stayed loyal to their favorite shades. But what are they?
Her Majesty is known for her love to bright colors and it shows in everything from her outfit to her lipstick. She has her own personalized shade of red from Clarins. However, according to HELLO, her favorite lipstick is Elizabeth Arden’s Beautiful Color Lipstick in the shade Electric Pink.
The Duchess of Cambridge
Duchess Kate is loyal to one brand – Bobby Brown. She is often seen wearing the brand’s Sandwashed Pink Lipstick, which gives her that perfectly natural, nude lip look.
The Duchess of Sussex
It is said that for her wedding, Meghan chose a lip balm by Dior with a lip crayon underneath (some think it’s Honest Beauty Truly Kissable Lip Crayon in Sheer Chestnut Kiss). But her all-time favorite is Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution Lipstick in a cult shade Very Victoria, which was created for Victoria Beckham.
Lady Di sometimes was spotted wearing a reddish-orange tone with a little bit of brown thrown in. NARS Audacious Lipstick in Jane shade would be a good choice for those who want to copy her look. On her engagement photo shoot, she wore Max Factor’s Tint of Pink Lipstick, but, unfortunately, it was discontinued.
Lipsticks are not the only thing that comes under the royal protocol’s control. Nail polish always has to be neutral as well. Also, the royal ladies can’t refresh their makeup in public as it is considered to be bad manners.
