She’s has the difficult task of settling into life as a working royal and the burden of family drama, but throughout it all Meghan has remained fresh-faced and glowing – thanks to a reccommendation from the Duchess of Cambridge.
It’s previously been reported that mother-of-three Kate, 36, is a fan of the £42 Beuti Skincare Beauty Sleep Elixir which she keeps on her bedside table at Kensington Palace.
And now palace sources say Meghan is now a convert after Kate passed on her tip for glowing skin to her new sister-in-law the Duchess of Sussex, 36.

While she’s maintained a dignified silence in public, Meghan is said to be ‘at her wits’ end’ over her father Thomas, who has been continually giving media interviews, staged paparazzi photos ahead of her wedding and then missed the big day.
Meghan has been accused of ‘cutting off’ Thomas Markle in a spate of media interviews and according to royal correspondent Katie Nicholl she has been turning to her sister-in-law for support.
Writing in Vanity Fair, Nicholl revealed that Meghan sees Kate as a ‘pillar of support’ in her new life behind palace walls – and Harry is said to be ‘relieved’ that they have forged a close alliance.
What is Beuti Skincare Beauty Sleep Elixir?
The elixir is packed with 14 precious plant oils that help support skin barrier function, which is a key role in fighting inflammation.
One of the more curious ingredients is Caribbean coral, which apparently neutralises the enzyme responsible for skin aging, acne and sunburn and is one of the world’s most potent anti-inflammatory ingredients.
The brand’s founders say Caribbean sea coral is sustainably harvested only using the tip, which leaves the coral alive and healthy .
The founders, who make it themselves in the UK, say it can be worn under makeup to even out skin tone, on top of blemishes or simply on its own on ‘no makeup days’.
It is also packed with softalia, which is derived from an Australian nut and apparently counteracts inflammation, hydrates and reduces fine lines.
The two duchesses’ blossoming friendship was evident in pictures of them watching Wimbledon together earlier this month.
One source noted that Kate is ‘well aware’ of what the newbie royal is going through and has ‘made a big effort to be kind to Meghan and look out for her’.
Another insider added: ‘Kate’s made a real effort to be kind to Meghan and to include her. They’re quite different characters but they get along well.’
The two women, both 36, are said to have bonded over their love of dogs, tennis and the great outdoors.
The source told how Kate invites Meghan to her apartment at Kensington Palace for tea, with the two women speaking on the phone once a week.
They added: ‘[Kate] has made an effort with Meghan. She’s been very sympathetic to what’s been going on with Meghan and her dad.’
Kate has also recommended the services of British designer Emilia Wickstead to her new sister-in-law in addition to passing on her beauty tip.
