Yesterday, while Kate Middleton returned from maternity leave in her favourite Zara jeans, Meghan Markle proved she was as much a fan of the high-street, for a trip to the University of Chichester's Engineering and Digital Technology Park with Prince Harry.
The Duchess chose a £69 moss green shirt for the occasion, from one of our favourites, & Other Stories.
To be fair, she did pair it with designer items, notably a Hugo Boss skirt, an Armani coat and a Gabriela Hearst bag, but we'll take it as an excellent lesson on how to do hi-lo fashion. Side note: the coat is sold out, but see our edit of the best camel coats here.
See also the way she softened the tough leather pencil skirt with the feminine silk shirt, and kept it all tonal, in a shade that's very in for autumn/winter.
It's also a shade Meghan is a fan of, having previously worn olive green at her nephew Prince Louis' christening.
Don't know about you, but this is making us embrace autumnal dressing.

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.
Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).
Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.
However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.
Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
