Country Life is a British weekly magazine, established in 1897. It focuses on issues of interest to rural landowners and communities.

One of the magazine's traditions is to publish a picture of an upper-class young woman on its frontispiece (the page preceding its contents page), a section often referred to as Girls in Pearls.

Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, who married Prince Albert of York and later became the Queen Mother, appeared frequently on its front cover.
