The Duchess of Cambridge is the queen of fashion. From high street threads to designer pieces, her wardrobe is brimming with coveted styles. We like the way she recognises and sports up-to-date fashion trends in her own unique way.
READ: Meghan Markle, Kate Middleton and Duchess Camilla can't get enough of this affordable bag brand
The 'mini' bag exploded onto the scene in 2019 and has stayed current ever since. Everything is getting smaller in the arm candy world - big bags that you can carry your kitchen sink in are out.
