From their formal wear to their effortless casual looks and from their event-ready outfits to their carefully-selected accessories and jewelry pieces, these two ladies master the art of looking picture-perfect at all times. Duchess Kate and Duchess Meghan might gravitate towards different styles, but they surely have one thing in common: a tendency to mix higher-end items with affordable style picks, including jewellery from Monica Vinader, footwear and casual dresses. Take a look at some of their most memorable royal style picks (and some really striking replicas) that come with attractive price tags – all under £100!
1. Kate’s Jewellery Game: Dainty Pearl Earrings
While we’re totally loving Duchess Kate’s latest garments, we can’t seem to get over her jewellery game – more precisely, her flair for dainty earrings that are elegant, sophisticated and mindfully selected. Some of our favourites include the stunning baroque pearl earrings she recently wore at Wimbledon, paired with a pastel blue Emilia Wickstead dress and nude ankle strap heels. But if you’re looking for a daintier pair, get inspired by Duchess Kate’s classic white pearl studs and rock this next radiant pair of freshwater pearls for just under £100.
The Steal: 7mm White Freshwater Pearl Stud Earrings, £99
2. Colour Commitment: Meghan’s Forest Green Look
You saw it, you loved it – and you still do, almost a year after the event. We’re talking about no other than Meghan’s famous forest green look she sported while visiting the University of Chichester’s Engineering and Technology Park in Bognor Regis back in October of 2018. The Duchess of Sussex impressed in the all-green look, featuring a silky button-up blouse and a leather pencil skirt, paired with nude pumps – and if you’ve been eyeing the shirt, you’re in luck. You too can look camera-ready in this universally-flattering shade of green for just £95.

3. Maternity Chic in Fuchsi
Duchess Kate’s maternity style is always on point – and effortless, chic royal style doesn’t always have to come with higher price tags. Our favourite maternity pick from Kate: the hot fuchsia pink number she wore as she introduced little Prince George to the world. Featuring a knot front detail and a low neckline, the dress looked stunning on Kate as she wore it post-partum at the Middleton family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire.
The Steal: Seraphine Pink Fuchsia Knot Front Maternity Dress, £49.00
4. Timeless Versatility: Meghan’s Polished Blazers
A perfect match at a bargain price is definitely a must-have if you’re all about looking as polished as the duchesses, but often times, a close replica is all you need in order to achieve their sleek style. And talking about sleek, Meghan has an affinity for classic pieces that carry a timeless feel, with a touch if versatility – and tailored grab & go blazers are just that. We’re simply loving how the duchess looks in pantsuits, especially the Givenchy one she rocked while strolling hand in hand with her prince in Ireland back in 2018. If you join the duchess in her preference for timelessly sleek blazers, then make sure to grab this next one for just £80.
The Steal: Asos Gestuz Nani Double Breasted Co-ord Blazer, £80.00
5. Sporty Vibes: Meghan’s Affordable Runners
While she might have an enviable collection of high heels in her closet, Meghan Markle is no stranger to rocking athleisure garments when off duty. And what better footwear to wear on repeat while on errand runs in gloomy weather than the comfiest pair around. Sporty royal style on the go starts with the right sneakers – and for Duchess Meghan, those are her trusted Nike runners that come with a very tempting price tag.
The Steal: Nike Classic Cortez, £64.95
