We’ve rounded up the best Christmas advent calendars that our favorite royals would love, from Kate Middleton’s love of Clarins to Meghan Markle’s Diptyque obsession and Prince William’s love of a pint of Guinness! This royal-approved round-up includes everything from beauty advent calendars to chocolate and cheese-filled calendars – happy shopping!
1-Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge
Clarins’ Natural Lip Perfector in Rose Shimmer is one of Duchess Kate’s best-kept beauty secrets. We expect the mother-of-three to peruse the new beauty advent calendar for 2021, as she is a die-hard fan of the brand.
This festive find is worth over £123 and priced at just £65 – a bargain! It houses Clarins’ most-loved skincare and make-up must-haves, including the royal’s go-to gloss, which she famously wore at Wimbledon in 2019.
2- The Queen
Her Majesty has long shopped at Fortnum & Mason’s, the Queen’s official grocer, and she even celebrated her Diamond Jubilee in 2012 by opening the store’s decadent Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon.
While Fortnum & Mason has a fantastic Christmas range, including the beauty and feasting advent calendars, we know she’d adore the Tea Lover’s advent calendar based on history.
According to Express, former press secretary Dickie Arbiter said, “The Queen likes [Fortnum and Mason’s] Earl Grey tea, she has Earl Grey tea in the morning.” “However, Assam tea is also served at Buckingham Palace.”
Prince William enjoys Guinness and makes it a point to try a pint whenever he visits Ireland. In 2020, the royal even got a lesson in pouring the perfect pint while visiting the Guinness Gravity Bar in Dublin with his wife, Kate.
The Guinness Advent Calendar is priced at £24.99, and Prince William would undoubtedly include it in his Christmas basket this year! It’s filled with 24 Guinness dark chocolate truffles and is the ultimate treat for Guinness fans.
4-The Duchess of Sussex
Since starring in Suits, the Duchess of Sussex has gushed about Diptyque, and the candles have been spotted in Instagram photos of her Toronto home. She was such a fan that she even asked for the brand’s fragrance to be used at her wedding at St. George’s Chapel!
If Prince Harry wants to impress Meghan, we recommend surprising her with the Diptyque Advent Calendar 2021 for Christmas. Each of the 25 scented treats inside has been packaged in a reusable box that will keep its magic even after the holidays are over – and we all know Meghan is passionate about sustainability.
Princess Eugenie has long praised the work of renowned make-up artists Bobbi Brown and Charlotte Tilbury, describing them as “geniuses” for assisting her in achieving a flawless complexion.
The Bobbi Brown and Charlotte Tilbury advent calendars are both currently available to purchase; the only question is which one Eugenie will choose.
Over the years, Prince Harry has attended a number of James Bond film premieres. In 2008, he was photographed on the red carpet for the premiere of Quantum of Solace, and in 2015, he was photographed at the premiere of Spectre.
Selfridges 007 advent calendar is releasing a limited-edition calendar for Christmas, which is right up his alley! This black and gold design is dressed to kill, with 12 drawers of Bond-inspired gifts, including an official Casino Royale prop.
While appearing on MasterChef Australia in 2018, Duchess Camilla famously revealed Prince Charles’ obsession with cheese: “He adores, adores, adores local cheeses. He’s a huge cheese fan who will eat anything with cheese in it “she stated
The Prince would certainly be pleased with this Ilchester cheese advent calendar. There are a variety of cheeses inside, including Applewood, Ilchester Double Gloucester, and Mexicana cheeses, as well as a number of cheesy jokes!
