Make-up artist Mary Greenwell has worked with a plethora of famous faces in the fashion industry, from Naomi Campbell to Cindy Crawford, but many will recognise her as the beauty genius behind some of Princess Diana’s most iconic looks.

The revered make-up artist famously worked with the late royal when she graced Vogue and Vanity Fair, and recently revealed that she was the woman who convinced Diana to stop wearing her signature blue eyeliner.

And it seems that Greenwell’s work with the royal family continues, as it was revealed that she worked with none other than Meghan Markle for her latest cover shoot.

The Suits star features on the cover of Vanity Fair‘s October issue, where Meghan opened up about her relationship with Diana’s son, Prince Harry, for the first time.

Meghan had admitted she was excited to work with photographer Peter Lindbergh for the shoot because he ‘rarely retouches, and he believes in such little make-up’, making Greenwell – who is famed for ability to bring out Princess Diana’s natural beauty – the perfect fit.

The interview attracted criticism from Meghan’s friend, Priyanka Chopra, for being ‘sexist’, but fans of the couple were bowled over with Meghan’s candidness considering that up until now the pair have been very private about their relationship.

Talking about dating a royal, Meghan said: ‘It has its challenges, and it comes in waves—some days it can feel more challenging than others.

‘And right out of the gate it was surprising the way things changed. But I still have this support system all around me, and, of course, my boyfriend’s support.’

Teamed with the fact that they are set to make their first public appearance together at the Invictus Games on September 23rd, speculation is mounting that Meghan and Harry will be engaged before the year is out.
