In March 2017, the Duchess of Cambridge visited Paris for two days.  On the second day, she carried a burgundy quilted bag by French design house Chanel.

About Kate’s Chanel bag:

The burgundy bag is from Chanel’s Fall-Winter 2016/2017 collection. It features the iconic Chanel logo on the front and a patterned enamel/brass handle. It’s made from quilted calfskin leather.

According to, the bag originally retailed for $6,225 in 2015.  As that’s a Canadian site, I’ll assume the price is in Canadian Dollars.  In US Dollars, that’s around $4,664 and in GBP that’s around £3,762.

The bag is no longer available for purchase.

Kate Middleton wearing Chanel:

It’s no coincidence that Kate chose to wear Chanel during her official visit to Paris. Chanel is one of France’s most iconic design houses.

We believe Kate has worn Chanel (to a public engagement) on just one previous occasion, during a visit to Canada in 2011.

Kate wore a pinky peach tweed jacket during a visit to Charlottetown. Two anonymous sources claimed the jacket was by Chanel, while a third person has commented that one of the Characters on TV show Sex and the City owned an almost identical Chanel jacket.  Sadly, we’ve never received any official confirmation either way.
