Quite the classic. 

If you somehow haven't heard the news, let us be the ones to break it to you: Prince Harry is officially off the market! Just hours after announcing their highly anticipated engagement, the beaming couple made their royal debut at Kensington Palace today, and we're already swooning over Meghan Markle's budding bridal beauty.

Known for her understated style and natural look, the lovely bride-to-be was exquisitely dressed for her first appearance after news broke that the lovebirds are tying the knot, and, naturally, we're obsessing over every bit of Meghan Markle's style inspiration. The soon-to-be newest addition to the royal family was a vision in an elegant (and subtly bridal) white coat, nude pumps, and a flattering green dress. But, what we really want to know is what shade of lipstick she selected for such an occasion. After all, it may help us snag our very own prince someday, and all Southern gals know the importance of the perfect lip color.

Well, Ms. Markle is already mirroring some of the beauty inspiration presented by the royal women with an impeccable nude lipstick that's a surefire win for all the regal occasions to come. Prince Harry's fiancé has previously expressed that her go-to lipstick is Very Victoria (an ironic name considering royal family lineage) by Charlotte Tilbury, and that's perhaps the color she sported for the engagement announcement. It's a sophisticated taupe nude hue that beautifully highlights Meghan's glossy brown hair and rosy pink cheeks.

This isn't Charlotte Tilbury's first connection to the much buzzed about British monarchy as the brand has even named previous shades of lipstick after the Queen herself. While the women in the royal family usually stick to classic hues of nude, pink, and red, Meghan is already picking up on her future family's style pointers. We have no doubt she will continue to impress!
