From her exquisite dress sense to her well-groomed hairstyle – which never appears to have a hair out of place – the Queen always looks beautiful.
Her Majesty, of course, has always had a well-oiled crew behind her, ensuring that her clothing, style, and hair are always on point – with the exception of her make-up, which she nearly always does herself.
However, when lockdown occurred, the Queen, like the rest of us, was unable to interact with anybody outside of her own bubble due to limitations placed in place to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
Despite this, the Queen managed to look as gorgeous and exquisite as ever throughout this time – even while she was alone, according to MyLondon.
Angela Kelly, the monarch’s senior dresser, has now revealed how the monarch was able to constantly remain on top of wardrobe malfunctions during recent public appearances in an updated chapter of her 2019 book, The Other Side of the Coin: The Queen, the Dresser, and the Wardrobe.
“It chronicles the narrative of the royal bubble as well as the extent Angela and the royal staff went to, to protect the monarch’s safety,” Harper NonFiction publishing director Katya Shipster said of the book.
Kelly and a few other members of staff built a “royal bubble” to isolate beside the Queen at Windsor Castle to minister to all Her Majesty’s requirements, preventing any clothing catastrophes or home beauty disasters.
Kelly, who has worked with the royal family for almost three decades, explained how she became the Queen’s hairdresser during this period.
She’s also talked about breaking in the Queen’s new shoes to make sure they’re comfy.
Kelly’s tactics also include stitching in extra layers of lining to cushion the Queen’s crystals in her back when she wears beautiful gowns.
According to a royal analyst, her connection with the Queen is as follows: “We’re two typical females. We talk about clothing, make-up, and jewellery.”
Harper Collins will release an updated edition of Kelly’s book on May 12.
