Princess Of Wales Kate Middleton Best Handbags

11 OCT 22

The Midi Mayfair bag by Aspinal of London, which Kate has in both black and purple croc, and the Mini Seaton by Mulberry have the same elegant lines and subtle gold hardware

Kate's feminine bag ensemble is rounded up with two flawlessly shaped Alexander McQueen bags

The black leather and raffia models are variants on the brand's mini Wicca satchels and, like her bottle-green Manu Atelier edition, make for stylish day-to-night accessories because to their diminutive size

The Duchess of Cambridge's burgundy Chanel purse is the star of her edit of timeless handbags, none of which are characterised by the season or the designer who designed them

"Fashion fades, but style endures," Coco Chanel once remarked, and Kate's polished bags exemplify fine fashion that keeps its worth

The regularity with which the Duchess wears her accoutrements attests to this (the Aspinal of London and Chanel styles are rotated most often)
