Officially, there is no rule
on piercings amongst British royalty, although senior members of the royal
family are expected to keep their look conservative. Keep scrolling to discover
which royals have braved the needle in the name of glam…
The Duchess of Sussex is
also fond of cuff-style earrings, having worn them on a number of occasions –
though she is actually thought to only have one piercing in each ear. Her
mother, Doria Ragland, notably sports a delicate nose stud, which she
proudly wore to her daughter’s royal wedding in May 2018.
Lady Marina Windsor sparked
controversy when she arrived at the Queen’s annual pre-Christmas lunch in
December 2012 sporting a tragus piercing. At just 20 years old, she was no
doubt experimenting with her look – though in more recent pictures it seems she
has removed it.
Her younger sister, Lady
Amelia Windsor, who is known to have multiple tattoos, also favours the
‘curated ear’ look, with lots of piercings along her ear lobe and up to her
mid-helix. She has inking on her rib cage and each of her wrists, as well as a
tiger – pictured – on her left shoulder blade.
Zara Tindall famously
revealed her tongue stud to the royal family at Prince Charles’s
50th birthday party in 1995 – having reportedly had the piercing put in at
a local tattoo parlour to her boarding school. Stories at the time claimed that
her mother, Princess Anne, was unfazed by her new look, and simply asked
if she was able to speak properly. Zara was also thought to have a belly button
piercing during her younger years.
In November 2018, Queen
Rania of Jordan was photographed at the ‘Publisher’s Night’ of the
Association of German Magazine publishers sporting two helix piercings and an
upper lobe piercing, as well as more traditional placement.
