"You can see Prince Harry's hands-on approach, steering her, helping her," he told People.
This is the bizarre reason why Meghan Markle won't wear red lipstick
Meghan Markle transcended all class boundaries earlier this year, becoming a member of the royal family and a princess in our minds, at least. The erstwhile Suits actress snapped up Britain's most eligible bachelor, Prince Harry, in a beautiful ceremony which was held at St George's Chapel in Windsor - and of course - all eyes were on the bride.
Meghan wore a Givenchy gown, by way of Clare Waight Keller, which was paired with Queen Mary's diamond bandeau tiara. She styled her hair in a low, messy bun, and her makeup was refreshingly simple and glowy. Now, of course, everyone is trying to replicate the Duchess of Sussex's effortless look - and all the other looks she has sported since - but reportedly, one beauty look that you'll never catch her in is the classic red lip.
"The one time she did a red lip, she just didn't feel comfortable in it," Meghan's makeup artist, Daniel Martin - who did her wedding look - told People. "She likes to talk and she's not a fussy person, so she doesn't want to have to worry about anything. They have so many engagements, you just have to stick with what you know and feel comfortable and confident and just own it."
The Duchess of Sussex has certainly gone through a style revolution since joining Kensington Palace.
In all of her official royal engagements to date, the 37-year-old has opted to wear more traditional designs with a muted colour palette. This is especially evident when she's with the Queen. While Her Majesty is rarely seen out of her signature brights, Meghan chose to don a blush pink Carolina Herrera dress at Trooping the Colour. And then, at their solo outing to Chester, the Queen wore a lime green ensemble, whereas Megan wore a nude Givenchy dress.
This is, of course, a far cry from the way that Meghan dressed herself when she was an actress, and before she got engaged to Prince Harry.
This is all to ensure that the monarch takes centre stage at public outings. A fact confirmed by fashion commentator, Lucas Armitage. Speaking to the Daily Mail, she stated "I feel this is a clever styling tactic as it will always work with the Queen's look; she is known and applauded for her use of bright fun colours."
Etiquette expert, William Hanson corroborated:
"The key really is that it isn't a rule solely for Meghan, it's for any ancillary member of the royal family. When you attend an event with the Queen, she is the star of the show and you don't want to upstage her too much. I don't think it will be an overly conscious effort on Meghan's part, but the Queen often wears bright, block colours deliberately, so people six deep in a crowd can see her, especially as she's not very tall. There is logic to the Queen's wardrobe."
In any case, royal photographer, Mark Stewart, has alleged that Prince Harry has taken a "hands-on approach" to teaching Meghan the various royal customs.
