Items every future princess needs to pack for her honeymoon
By Aly Walansky
Meghan Markle probably has all her bases covered when planning her upcoming royal honeymoon with her soon-to-be groom Prince Harry. But for the rest of us who crave just a bit of princessdom in our lifestyle, here’s some honeymoon packing must-haves.
Masque Bar Foil Peel-Off Pod Masks The perfect travel companion to keep your skin visibly hydrated throughout your travels! Enriched with natural ingredients, these new metallic travel sized pods are must-have jet setting essentials to give your skin a vibrant boost. The rose gold mask is purifying, soothing and moisturizing, and contains ingredients like raspberry, macadamia, and anise fruit extract. On the same note, a really excellent hair brush is essential for keeping those locks luxe – we love the RPZL Polisher Brush at $40, which boasts soft-touch handle and nicely cushioned bristles.
Heart Shaped Lippie from Winky Lux $14 This super cute lipstick is buildable and gives a natural touch of color.
24kt Glimmer Balm $14 This is a luxury lip balm that reacts with your pH level to give you the perfect pink tint with a hint of gold. It’s coconut scented and infused with natural vanilla, which will make those lips extra kissable.
Paul Stuart recently launched their Made on Madison collection that features hand-cut, hand-finished women’s robes and kimonos expertly crated by a team of in-house tailors at the company’s NYC flagship. If one is so inclined to venture outside the royal honeymoon suite, wearing a robe as outerwear is appealing on several levels. For one, there’s an element of glamour and perhaps as importantly, it’s oh-so-comfortable. We’re into the 100% silk leopard ($595).
If you are a princess, you are always being watched – and that means you want to always be photo-ready. You’ve worked so hard to get your hair in good shape, don’t damage it by aggressively towel drying. Try a microfiber towel like AQUIS Hair Turban,which is designed cut down drying time by 50%!

A princess needs to keep on top of all the buzzing the world will be doing about her – especially in the days following her wedding! The Skyroam Solis is a dual 4G LTE global WiFi hotspot and power bank that offers connection for up to five gadgets through Skyroam’s virtual SIM network in over 100 countries with 16+-hour battery life. It can be a lifesaver when traveling, especially in hotels with iffy or nonexistent internet options. – $150
GINGERCHI ROSE QUARTZ ROLLER $39: Something tells us planning that wedding was pretty darn stressful. This rose quartz roller is a great way to start to relax now that the stress is over. It is a healing stone that improves elasticity, tightens and reduces pores. It also evens the skin tone.
New luggage is a great way to start a new life, and the sexy Space Grey luggage collection from iFly is a hard-side collection with a metallic exterior, metal wheels and accents, and a 10-year warranty. It’s value-priced too, starting at $59, which is perfect for Markle, who often appears wearing surprisingly approachable brand names that look impeccable on her.
The future princess’s favorite perfume deserves to arrive in style, and not shattered into pieces all over her luggage! Say bon voyage to toting glass perfume bottles across the country, and hello to the Travalo Milano ($50), an elegant refillable atomizer. The Milano is finished in opulent and elegant material, with finely crafted metal parts, and is perfectly weighted.
Pax Philomena We can imagine the couple will spend a lot of time on the beach – this multi-cultural clothing line made of exquisitely designed textiles and vibrant novelty fabrics – Kaftans make for a great beach cover up! ($115)
This Navy Silk Maxi Dress from The White Company is perfect for a honeymoon, as it can be worn casually with sandals or flip-flops or with heels for a more dressed up evening. ($249)

The new Day to Night Eye Shadow Palette from clean beauty brand INIKA Organic is all natural, cruelty-free and made with the highest quality clean ingredients.
100% PURE Tomato Lycopene SPF 20 Moisturizer ($36): This vegan product doubles as a moisturizer and offers protection against both the sun’s UVA/UVB rays and environmental damage (e.g. smog, pollution, etc.) no matter where the honeymoon takes place. It’s formulated with lycopene, an antioxidant found in tomatoes, to protect against damaging free radicals, while olive squalene, coconut and sunflower oils offer moisturization.
Plantioxidants Cucumber & Kale Juice Mask ($85) This intensely hydrating, TSA-friendly overnight facial treatment instantly perks up dull skin, perfect to use after a honeymoon day spent in the sun or adventuring.
