Makeup artists have criticized Meghan Markle for her makeup mishaps during
her photo ops. In 2019, Meghan and Prince Harry visited the Poppy Factory’s
Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey, where Meghan had a relatable makeup
While hugging veteran William Allen, who had taken part in the D-Day Landings
during World War II, Meghan left a smudge of powder on his jacket when she
pulled away. Royal Beauty Channel’s Biebs Kelly, who is known for her fashion
expertise, etiquette insights, and makeup artistry, pointed out Meghan
Markle’s makeup fails.
Biebs, with her background in finishing school and makeup artistry, offers
constructive critiques. She explained why certain makeup looks were considered
wrong for Meghan and how she should aim for a more relatable and professional
appearance, especially during public walkabouts.
Biebs emphasized that a public-facing role like that of a royal requires a
professional and approachable appearance, representing the cause or
organization they stand for. She noted that Meghan’s makeup choices sometimes
made her look less relatable and open during public engagements, which was not
ideal for a royal’s image.
In related news, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s popularity in the United
States has reportedly waned. A Channel 5 show titled “Harry and Meghan: Is
America Turning Against Them?” explored their evolving relationship with the
American public. Experts pointed out that while the couple was initially
highly popular in the U.S., their tendency to overshare has led to criticism.
The couple’s decision to step back from their royal roles in 2020 was
accompanied by a promise to Queen Elizabeth II that they would not exploit
their royal connections for financial gain. However, royal biographer Angela
Levin expressed disappointment, claiming that they have indeed capitalized on
their royal status for profit.
Levin remarked that they are using their ties to the royal family to make
money, despite assuring the queen that they wouldn’t. She found it shocking
that they’ve ignored this commitment. Levin also noted that airing family
issues in public is not well-received by many.
Another royal author, Tom Quinn, suggested that their claims of victimization
have worn thin with the American public. He believes that portraying
themselves as victims can only be sustained for a limited time, and it may not
have lasting appeal.
