Sure, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle may be royals, but they’re still human: The Duchess of Cambridge gets henna tats and masterfully rocks an off-duty athletic look, while the Duchess of Sussex is a dog lover who knows her way around bargain beauty products. Further proof that these two are #justlikeus? Both of them have recently been spotted enjoying the quintessential wellness-minded ritual: grocery shopping.

Earlier this year, the Daily Mail reported that Middleton spent time in a supermarket in Waitrose in Norfolk, England, gathering her items in a reusable bags, nonetheless. She either bought a coriander or parsley plant for 25 percent off, and even sipped on a complimentary coffee being offered in the store, and ended her trip by using the store’s self-checkout system before loading her bags into the back of her Range Rover.

While it’s unclear whether Markle is a fan of growing her own herbs like her sister-in-law, she is a fan of some good old grocery-shopping therapy. A source told People that the Whole Foods next to the Palace (talk about location!) is the only place the ex-Suits star has frequented since her big move across the pond. She simply secures her hair under a baseball cap, and slips away from the Nottingham Cottage to stock up on…oat milk? Healthy snacks? Pumpkin spice granola? Really, inquiring minds need to know.

Now that the family has expanded and the royal wedding is a wrap, maybe the dynamic duchess duo plans to use the herbs to meal-prep up a royal storm.
