Well OP, like most married men his wife goes down to target and buys his shirts for him. Then she takes them home, washes them by hand and lovingly irons them in front of the TV while watching East Enders. Of course Kate does all this with a tiara on because, unlike your run of the mill housewife, she's royal.
That's the difference OP, between your shirts and his.

I'm not so sure that it's the shirt so much as the tailoring that makes his shirt look so good on him. I have a friend who knows how to sew and he tailors pretty much all of his clothes and he's always being asked where he buys his clothes at.

I visited the Turnbull & Asser website... are their clothes bespoke only?
Their site has a lot of information (history, heritage, blah, blah), but no information on their products, pictures, etc.
Is Turnbull & Asser one of those "if you have to ask, you can't afford it" things?

Turnbull and Asser at Mr Porter over $300 for a shirt.

Turnbull and Asser were Prince Charles' first royal warrant (issued in '81) as "shirtmakers" so William probably gets his shirts there.
Rwhatever was correct - it's in the tailoring. Even a shlub can look decent with the right tailor and a cheap shirt can look perfect. Touching it is another matter - the hand of the fabric will always give it away.

A bespoke shirt in Paris or London is about $450. Same shirt in Naples, Italy would be much less--you can get a bespoke jacket in Naples for what amounts to 700 or 800 dollars. In Hong Kong, a bespoke shirt would be under 100.
You can fake it by buying a nice shirt at Nordstroms or J Crew and having a tailor alter it to suit you (less than $20 for the tailoring).

Instead of the two ends of the cuff being rounded where they come together, they have a triangular cut away.

Turnbull & Asser would be front runners but any of the tailors in or around Savile Row could also be contenders - Gieves & Hawkes, Manning & Manning, Henry Herbert etc. all popular with the military types.
My most prized items of clothing are 4 bespoke shirts from Henry Poole - spread collar, mitred barrel cuffs, sea island cotton - I had never had a tailored shirt before and had some spare cash so treated myself. They fit perfectly, always look crisp and smart, feel like a second skin. The whole thing was a fantastic experience, from the first time stepping into the shop through to fitting. The shops have all got the most incredible client lists going back for years - you can get a suit made at the same place Fred Astaire, Cary Grant and The Aga Khan got theirs made. And anyone else who's very rich in the past 200 years.

Not quite, dear. Unless we're talking some sort of terribly fine fabric, the going rate for bespoke button-downs is closer to $350, even on the Continent. This is why one should never ask a lesbian for clothing advice...
Turnbull & Asser is known for its suits, but shirts? Not so much. The finest two shirtmakers in the world are French and American: Charvet and Hamilton, respectively. Kate certainly doesn't limit herself to British designers -- although she certainly wears more British fashion than anything else, mind you -- and I see no reason why William would, either.

Some men require their shirtmaker to cut the left cuff larger in order to accommodate a Rolex.
Gianni Agnelli had no such need, as he always wore his wristwatch on top of his shirt, above the cuff. He also didn't button down the collars of his button-down shirts.
