Meghan Markle wanted minimal makeup and her lovely, natural freckles untouched for her recent Vanity Fair magazine photo shoot–the one where she casually announced that she and Prince Harry were in love, and we all swooned.

The Suits star shared her delight during her Vanity Fair interview that she would be working with photographer Peter Lindbergh, because he "rarely retouches, and he believes in such little makeup."

And now it's been revealed that Markle's makeup artist on the day was none other than Mary Greenwell, the fashion world's favorite beautician who has worked with Princess Diana.

She famously did Diana's makeup for Vogue and Vanity Fair, and has previously worked with iconic supermodels including Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, and Cindy Crawford.


Greenwell posted the images of Markle's VF shoot on Instagram, and disclosed that she had "such a lovely day" working with the 36-year-old actress.

"Beautiful Meghan Markel for @vanityfair with @therealpeterlindbergh and @jdiehlpoynter Such a lovely day. #marygreenwell #meghanmarkle #makeup #makeupartist," Greenwell captioned the photos.

Meanwhile, Markle spoke candidly about her relationship with Prince Harry, and reflected on the pressures of dating a royal.


"It has its challenges, and it comes in waves—some days it can feel more challenging than others," she ruminated.

"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."

Markle insisted it hasn't changed who she is, despite being propelled into the spotlight, and the subsequent the media intrusion and scrutiny.

"I can tell you that at the end of the day I think it's really simple," she continued. "We're two people who are really happy and in love. We were very quietly dating for about six months before it became news, and I was working during that whole time, and the only thing that changed was people's perception. Nothing about me changed. I'm still the same person that I am, and I've never defined myself by my relationship."

Now we're hoping for the couple's first ever public appearance together at the Invictus Games in Toronto later this month on September 23.

And then, who knows, perhaps an engagement announcement later this year...
