As a royal only one year into her new lifestyle, Meghan Markle is still learning to navigate style as a duchess. After all, we all know it’s very different from the dress code in her earlier Hollywood days—just check out these throwback photos of Markle to prove that. As such, it makes sense for her to take fashion cues from Kate Middleton, another commoner turned royal who has eight years of experience under her belt. One style secret weapon that both have adopted into their arsenal? A signature affordable T-shirt.

Kate has been wearing ME + EM striped Breton tops for over four years now, though her favored designs are now sold out, with at least three color variations in rotation. As for Meghan’s T-shirt of choice, the award goes to Lavender Hil’s “The Ultimate T-Shirt” line, which offers a myriad of necklines, fits, and sleeve lengths, enough choices to fulfill any royal outfit needs.

Curiously, both brands’ tees retail for within $20 of each other, are based in London sourcing only European materials, and claim to specialize in affordable luxury. Whether coincidence or not, it’s clear the duo has a like-minded style sense. Scroll down to see the tees in action, and scoop up one of Meghan’s for yourself.
