"Royals, they're just like us!" You've seen that headline enough to sometimes doubt it's authenticity. But never has this rang truer than when it comes to jeans. Like the rest of us, royal women wear, maybe even hoard, denim. Kate Middleton loves her skinny jeans while the Queen of Spain prefers a little flare. The Duchess of Cambridge has worn them on numerous occasions to public events and outings, as has her newly minted sister-in-law. So where do royals buy their go-to demin? We did a little research to find the exact brands and styles, and where we couldn't, we found similar options. Happy shopping!
