Romantic regal Bling
Soru Amore Earrings, £155, Harvey Nichols
Duchess Kate loves her jewellery and her go-to jewellery brand is Soru. She first wore a pair of their earrings back in 2016, and wore the same pair in January 2020 at Buckingham Palace. The baroque, double-sided statement gems were a firm favourite of the mother-of-three and we have a feeling should would adore these new, love-heart shaped earrings by the luxury brand.
Makeup with a royal edge
Matte Revolution Lipstick in Very Victoria, £25, Charlotte Tilbury
It's a well-known fact that the Duchess of Sussex loves Charlotte Tilbury makeup, and the lady herself even received an MBE from Her Majesty The Queen back in 2018. But which product from the luxury make-up collection does she love? Rumour has it that one of her Charlotte Tilbury favourites is Matte Revolution Lipstick in Very Victoria.
Duchess Kate's favourite scent
Orange Blossom Body & Hand Wash, £32, Jo Malone
The Duchess of Cambridge famously had Jo Malone's Orange Blossom candles burning at her wedding at Westminster Abbey in 2011 and we bet that a gift in fragrance form from the Orange Blossom collection for V Day would be greatly received from husband William this year! The brand has a host Valentine's Day ideas, and even better, there's a V-Day special gift with purchase with the code: SCENTED_TREAT. Get a Pomegranate Noir Miniature Candle with purchases over £80, or duo of English Pear & Freesia Bath Oil plus a Pomegranate Noir Miniature Candle when you spend £110.
Romantic candles with a special meaning
Diptyque scented candle, £49, Net-a-porter
Diptyque – famed for its stunning scented candles – was responsible for scenting out Prince Harry and Meghan's wedding which was held at St. George's Chapel. And the Duchess adores Diptyque's Baies scented candle, which has been spotted in her and Prince Harry's Los Angeles home.
A cosy bathrobe
Soho House Robe, £85, Soho Home
Former Suits star Meghan is close friends with Soho House consultant Markus Anderson, and is said to have enjoyed dates with Prince Harry at the private members’ club at the start of their relationship. Meghan also reportedly had her hen party at Soho Farmhouse in Oxfordshire, so we just know she would love this super soft Soho House robe that comes in five colours and can be personalised with a monogram.
The home beauty treatment fit for a royal
Treatment Lotion Hydrating Mask, pack of six, £128, Selfridges
The royals have amazing skin. How do we know? Because they look so picture-perfect in their close-ups of course! The Duchess of Sussex has previously revealed that she's a huge fan of La Mer – so we think she'd love to receive this pampering gift from the luxury skincare brand.
The travel planner with royal approval
STOW First Class Tech Case, £395, Fortnum & Mason
Back when the Duchess of Sussex had a lifestyle blog called The Tig - she often listed some of her favourite travel accessories online. The STOW First Class Tech Case was something she couldn't live without, and we can totally see why. The royal had her initials hallmarked on the orange version of the case - which is ideal for jetsetters who want to hold their passport, USB cables and tickets. Now available in a rich red with pink lining - it's perfect V day fodder!
The heart bag that Meghan will go crazy for
Valentine's Edition Mini Crescent bag, £455, Strathberry
Meghan sent luxury brand Strathberry into overdrive when she first carried its burgundy tote bag in 2017. Since then, she has worn three other bags by the brand - and because the royals do not accept gifts from companies, it is clear she purchased the trio of Scottish bags herself. We bet the royal will love the Mini Crescent bag as it has had a V-day makeover - check out the heart-shaped clasp! So cute...
A handbag fit for a Queen
Launer Judi Leather Tote, £1550, Selfridges
Her Majesty the Queen carries one handbag brand only - Launer London. You can spot her black tote bag a mile off - classic, chic and timeless. And for her granddaughters-in-law Meghan and Kate, the brand's luxurious Judi bag is just as timeless and comes in Valentine's red.
The Queen's beauty favourite
Elizabeth Arden Night Serum Capsules, £75, John Lewis
Her Majesty the Queen loves Elizabeth Arden lipstick – so could it be that Her Majesty, who aging so gracefully, has given her granddaughters-in-law some beauty advice? No doubt Meghan and Kate would love the beauty brand's ceramide capsules, which are famously effective at minimising the appearance of lines and wrinkles and support the skin’s natural collagen for a firmer look.
A glass for the Queen's favourite tipple
Pressed glass gin glasses, £15, Argos
It's no secret the Queen is a fan of gin. Her favourite cocktail is said to be the Zaza, which is two parts Dubonnet and one part gin. These beautiful gin glasses, which come in a set of four, would be perfect for sipping the glamorous French aperitif from!
A blow dryer for Princess hair
Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer, £299.88, QVC
The Duchess of Cambridge has the hair 'do of dreams. In fact, she single-handedly made the blow-dry cool again with those iconic coiffed curls. A top of the line Dyson hair dryer will help royals and non-royals alike get the look at home.
A fragrance with a royal warrant
Suede Orris Eau de Parfum, £110, Molton Brown
Molton Brown – the luxury brand with a royal warrant – has a fabulous scent the royals would love. Suede Oris is a warm vanilla scent that has sweet top notes of mandarin and we love the ruby red marble bottle detail.
The fragrance with a regal seal of approval
Atkinson's Rose Rhapsody £195, Harrods
Atkinsons perfume has some serious royal connections. Established in London by James Atkinsons in 1799, the fragrance house has a royal warrant with King George IV being the first royal to catch a whiff of it in 1826. So a great gift for any regal fan has to be an updated scent - and what better than Rose Rhapsody! This blooming lovely fragrance has top notes of fresh mandarin and bergamot with floral touches of Turkish Rose, jasmine, and patchouli.
