As the potential future wife of Princess Diana’s youngest son, it was only time before people started to make the inevitable comparisons between Meghan Markle and the late People's Princess. First up, it has been revealed that Meghan and Diana share a similar taste when it comes to their choice in makeup artists. Yep, for Meghan’s recent tell-all interview with Vanity Fair, she chose Diana’s favorite makeup master, the one and only Mary Greenwell.
The red carpet choice for the likes of Cate Blanchett, Jessica Chastain, Sienna Miller, and more, Greenwell is also famed for painting the faces of supermodels including Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, and Cindy Crawford during her 30-year career creating editorials for countless top publications. Greenwell took to Instagram to share the exciting news of her latest royal client writing it was "such a lovely day."
Greenwell was introduced to Diana, Princess of Wales by magazine editor Liz Tilberis and subsequently did her makeup alongside hairstylist Sam McKnight for numerous occasions including iconic cover shoots for both Vogue and Vanity Fair.
On the 20th anniversary of Diana’s death, Greenwell wrote a touching post about working with the Princess. "It is twenty years today since the untimely death of [Diana] I am so blessed to have spent so much time with this extraordinary lady who helped change the attitude to #HIV among other things. Her beauty and sincerity touched us all," Greenwell wrote.
