*This* is Meghan Markle's favorite lipstick, and it's royally expensive

From her messy buns to her choice in jewelry to her laidback style, Prince Harry's fiancée, Meghan Markle, is our ultimate beauty and fashion icon. Everything she touches is gold, which, turns out, holds true for her choice in lipstick as well.

According to a source close to makeup artist and fellow Brit Charlotte Tilbury, Markle's go-to lip shade is Charlotte Tilbury's own Matte Revolution in Very Victoria as reported by People. (Um, even the name feels like a tribute to a former Queen of England, although it's actually named after another style icon, Victoria Beckham, who will probably be in attendance at Markle's wedding...coincidence? We think not.) At $34, the gold-cased mauvey-brown lipstick isn't exactly a steal. But hey, becoming part of the royal family definitely has its perks.

A lip shade fit for the crown? We'll take 10, please.

Every time Meghan Markle has broken royal protocol

When she ditched the tights

Wearing hosiery is reportedly an unspoken rule for female members of the royal family, and one that Queen Elizabeth is a stickler for. Meghan Markle defied tradition when she went sans tights for her engagement photos.


When she spent Christmas with Queen Elizabeth

Meghan Markle made history when she became the first fiancée to spend Christmas with the queen at her Sandringham residence. Usually, events with the queen are reserved for spouses of royals. When Kate Middleton was engaged to Prince William she wasn't given that special privilege and instead spent the holiday with her own family.


When she wore a messy bun

There's no rule (that we know of) that claims royal ladies must have perfect blown out tresses for all royal engagements, but it's a look we've become accustomed to since Duchess Kate came into the picture in 2011 with her glossy curls and impeccable chignons. 


When she decided to make a speech at her own wedding

In Britain, traditionally the groom, father of the bride, and the best man make speeches after the wedding. However, the former actress will make a speech at her May 19 ceremony to pay tribute to Prince Harry and his family.


When she showed PDA with Prince Harry

Royal couples usually refrain from showing PDA in public -- a precedent set by Queen Elizabeth -- but it seems as if Meghan and Harry can't get their hands off each other!


When she gave an autograph

Royals aren't allowed to give autographs for security reasons, but Meghan Markle made an exception for one 10-year-old girl.


When she hugged kids

Again, for security reasons, royals are usually required to keep their hands to themselves (handshakes are okay). However, Meghan Markle defied that rule when she gave a group of children hugs while visiting a community center.


When she wore head-to-toe black

Usually, the dark hue is reserved for somber occasions like funerals or events like Remembrance Sunday Service. In fact, you'd never see Duchess Kate stepping out in an outfit like this for any public appearance.


When she wore a suit to a black-tie event

Meghan Markle shocked and stunned the world when she showed up to a black-tie affair with an Alexander McQueen suit on instead of a ball gown. While there's no official rule that royals must wear gowns, the move broke from tradition in a major way.


When she wore a crossbody bag

Holding clutches during public appearances is usually the norm for members of the royal family. Because protocol states you shouldn't offer your hand to any member of the royal family, Kate opts for clutches to avoid any awkward confrontations. However, Meghan surprised everyone when she stepped out in Scotland with a crossbody.


When she took a political stance

When she appeared alongside Duchess Kate, Prince Harry and Prince William, Meghan Markle expressed her support for the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements. It was a surprising moment considering protocol forbids members of the royal family to take sides on political issues.


Meghan Markle's side bun

She does it again! Meghan rocked a chic side bun during a surprise trip to Ireland, but just like her messy bun, it's an uncommon style for royals to rock.
