It comes as no surprise that the Duchess of Sussex is our ultimate beauty crush. From her natural wedding day makeup look to the fact she has single handedly made freckles cool again, the wife of Prince Harry is just too gorgeous for words. In her (now famous) interview with Allure magazine - which she did in 2014 when she starred in Suits -  Meghan revealed the beauty buys she loved, and amongst them was tea tree oil. In the interview, she said she uses the oil on mosquito bites, so we imagine the Duchess has packed it for her trip to Australia, where mosquitos are rife. "It's not the most glamorous thing, but if you get a cut, a mosquito bite, a small breakout, no matter what it is, it's my little cure-all. It's inexpensive, it's small enough to carry on, and I bring it with me all the time," she said at the time. What's more, you can pick up a bottle for just £3.36 from Thursday Plantation, which is available online. Genius!

Meghan and Harry look in great spirits during the royal tour of Australia

Speaking of the royal tour, the pregnant Duchess has been looking glowing during her appearances and we have been loving her change in hairstyle. The former actress tends to switch between her trademark messy bun or wear her hair down with a light curl, but on this trip she has been working some new hairstyles thanks to hair supremo George Northwood, who is on the trip with the royals.

On Wednesday, whilst touching down at Dubbo airport, Meghan surprised onlookers with a sleek and straight ponytail. On Friday, during a visit to Macarthur Girls High School, she went for a half-up-half-down look with a  slight beehive style at the root, complete with casual curls.

Meghan is a fan of volume, and once revealed to Birchbox that she favours the 'hair flip' technique. "There is nothing like a hair flip," Meghan said in the 2014 interview.

She also praised luxury hair-care brand Oribe, and mentioned that she has used their texturising spray: "When my hair is feeling a little weighted, Suzanne, my hair artist on set, has me bend forward, and she sprays a little Oribe Dry Texturising Spray, or nothing at all, and has me flip back hard to give my hair a little extra bounce."
