Royals might be the only people in the world with unlimited wardrobe options, but that hasn't stopped them from wearing plain old jeans—and wearing them well. Princess Diana loved high-waist denim. Kate Middleton has a thing for Zara skinnies. And then there's Meghan Markle and the jeans she wears on repeat.
Since making her entrance on the royal stage in 2017, Markle has skirted royal protocols and inspired legions of shoppers with her outfits—specifically, her denim ensembles. It all started with her first appearance with Prince Harry in 2017. Her outfit for the occasion? A white button-down and distressed jeans by Mother.
Three years later, that simple, effortless look still sits atop Markle's best outfits of all time—and now the iconic denim brand she wore that day is on sale at Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale.
The first time Meghan Markle wore jeans from Mother, at the 2017 Invictus Games
It wasn't always this easy to pick up one of Markle's favorite jeans—and definitely not for a discount. For a long time, the Meghan Markle jeans were perennially sold out (obviously). In fact, after Markle wore her Mother jeans to the Invictus Games, the brand immediately sold out of the style. The waitlist for her jeans reportedly grew to 4,000 eager customers and traffic to the page for Markle's jeans jumped a reported 1,000%. They've since been restocked on the brand's website, and are well-stocked (for now) at retailers like Nordstrom.

Of course, the iconic pair she wore that day isn't available at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but there are tons of styles marked down that are near-identical. A version of her Looker jeans are discounted right now from $238 to $158.90. Instead of one knee rip, this pair has two—but that's about the only difference we can spot.

Markle has other reasons to suggest that Mother jeans are a favorite in her closet: She's sported the denim brand again since her first appearance, donning the brand during the 2018 Invictus Games. This time around, she chose a slick pair of black skinnies, offset by a bright white blazer.

And yes, there's a similar skinny jeans style at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Usually, it retails for $225, but during the retailer's epic event, they're marked down to $149.90. Before you get too excited, you can only shop between August 4 to August 13 if you're in the Nordy Club (aka, are a Nordstrom cardholder); if you're not part of the club, general access to the sale is from August 19 to August 30.

Like Markle, you don't have to limit yourself to one pair of royal-friendly jeans. A handful of Mother items are marked down at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, so if you've ever wanted to do denim like a duchess, now's your chance.
