Royal Style Watch: From Kate Middletons pre-loved clutch to the Spencer twins new designer bags

Whoever said diamonds are a girl’s best friend clearly did not have an adequate handbag. This week, our beloved royal ladies engaged in various public outings, with most of them clutching a trusty handbag for all their daytime essentials.

For The Princess of Wales to the Countess of Wessex and Queen Rania of Jordan, the sleek clutch bag was the accessory of choice, while the Spencer twins, Queen Letizia of Spain and Crown Princess Victoria opted for a more practical crossbody design.

Princess Charlene of Monaco braved the bagless look, choosing belted detailing and boots in favour of handheld pieces.

Princess Kate

Princess Kate stepped out in a polka dot midi dress and her favourite camel coat

On Thursday, the ever-elegant Princess of Wales paid a visit to the Reading Ukrainian Community Centre to meet displaced Ukrainian families and hear about the support the Centre is providing to those arriving in the UK as a result of the conflict in Ukraine.

The royal donned her favourite print for the occasion in the form of a polka dot dress, sourced from one of her favourite high street brands, L.K.Bennett. The sheer navy dress adorned with a yellow dotted print was a subtle, but significant nod to the Ukrainian flag. She armed herself with her navy quilted clutch from Jaeger – a handbag that has been in her royal archive for over a decade.
