We talk a lot about trends here at Who What Wear, but we all know it's the basic, staple items in our wardrobes that get the most wear. They're considered classics for a reason. They'll never go out of style and are the safest fashion investments you can make if you consider the cost per wear.
Even royals aren't immune to the draw of a great basic. We've noticed a few items that both Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle not only own but continually wear on repeat. From the pant style that can truly be worn with anything to the chic shoes that add instant polish to every outfit, below are the four wardrobe staples that can be found in the closets of both stylish royals.
