Meghan and Kate beaten by surprise royal in Firm’s beauty contest

576

MEGHAN, Duchess of Sussex and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge are among the most popular members of the Royal Family – but have never been crowned the “most beautiful royal” unlike a distant cousin of their husbands.

Kate and Meghan have been acknowledged and appreciated for their work and views across the globe. Since joining the Royal Family, they have carried out important projects and supported causes close to their hearts.

The Duchess of Cambridge has delved into the topic of the early years and was inspired by her passion for photography to launch the Hold Still contest during the first national lockdown.

The Duchess of Sussex focuses her work on gender equality, community support and animal welfare among other issues.

The two royals also collaborated together to support projects focused on mental health and helping people struggling with it.

While they achieved popularity and a great deal of appreciation among their supporters, they are missing a title received by a lesser-known member of the Royal Family.

Lady Amelia Windsor was crowned “the most beautiful member of the Royal Family” in 2016 by high society and fashion magazine Tatler.

The 42nd-in-line to the throne appeared on the cover of the magazine on the year she turned 21.

She had been the first member of the Royal Family to appear on Tatler’s cover since 2008, when the magazine featured Princess Eugenie turning 18.

The 26-year-old is also a third cousin of Princes William and Harry.

Amelia’s father is the Duke of Kent’s firstborn, the Earl of St Andrews, set to inherit the Dukedom of Kent.

Her mother is Sylvana Palma Windsor, Countess of St Andrews, a historian and lecturer in History at Cambridge University.

Given her distance to the throne, Lady Amelia is not a working royal but has often appeared on the balcony at Buckingham Palace alongside the extended family of the sovereign to take part in the Trooping the Colour celebrations.

In May 2019 she was also among the guests at the wedding of Lady Gabriella Windsor.

After graduating from St Mary’s School in Ascot, Lady Amelia took a gap year before enrolling at Edinburgh University, where she studied French and Italian.

She has since become a model, signed with the same agency – Storm Model Management – which discovered Kate Moss and Cara Delavingne.

On top of walking the runway for world-famous brands such as Dolce & Gabbana, Lady Amelia also released in 2018 a collaboration with Penelope Chilvers for a line of shoes.

20 percent of the proceeds from her shoe collection were donated to War Child, which supports children in conflict-stricken areas.

Lady Amelia has also become a contributor to magazines, writing about lifestyles, fashion and sustainability.

Over the past years, she has shown a keen interest in the environment and has spoken about her love for eco-conscious fashion.

In 2018, she told the Daily Telegraph: “We’re all aware of the huge plastic crisis and the effect it’s having on our planet.

“Stella McCartney is someone to look up to in that sense, she makes the bigger point in her collection that you can be sustainable and stylish.

“That should be something that everyone looks for when they shop now”.
