Kate Middleton carries the Aspinal of London Mayfair Midi Bag in Deep Shine Black Croc.
The Princess has carried the black Aspinal Midi Mayfair handbag on five occasions to date (pictured above and below). She debuted the bag in 2018.
In recent years, Kate has gravitated towards small box bags with top handles. So, it was no surprise when she added Aspinal’s Midi Mayfair to her handbag collection in 2018.
About the Midi Mayfair bag:
The Aspinal Mayfair Midi is a structured boxy bag with a dainty top handle, gold hardware and a detachable strap. The black bag came with a choice of two straps, gold metallic chain or leather. It’s not known which Kate opted for—she hasn’t used the strap with her bag in public. She carries it by the top handle.
The Mayfair bag is crafted from full-grain Italian leather with a mock croc print. Aspinal’s signature shield lock adorns the front of the bag. It is engraved with the company’s logo. The back of the bag is embossed with the company’s logo too.
The size is probably one of the bag’s best features. It is midi-sized, making it big enough for all of your essentials but small and compact enough to carry around. The external slip pocket is perfect for storing a small notebook, phone or travel card for easy access. The internal pocket is divided into three sections, large enough to fit a bit of make-up, a purse and your phone.
This bag won’t date or go out of style anytime soon. It’s a classic piece with vintage-inspired styling and a timeless appeal.

How many Aspinal of London bags does Kate Middleton own?
Kate owns three Aspinal of London bags in total. She owns the Midi Mayfair in black croc as shown on this page. She also carries the same bag in a second colour, lilac:
The Princess first carried the lilac croc bag in 2018. She has taken it on two public engagements to date. Sadly, Aspinal of London have since discontinued the colour. They do sell the same bag in Lavender and Taupe though, which are great alternatives.
Aspinal of London Midi Mayfair Handbag, Lavender Croc
Get the look! Kate carries the Mayfair Midi bag in ‘lilac’ but Aspinal no longer sell that colour. The ‘lavender’ bag from their most recent collection is the best alternative. Find it on Aspinal’s website:
Aspinal of London Midi Mayfair Handbag, Taupe Croc
Get the look! If you like Kate’s lilac Midi Mayfair bag but find the lavender alternative a bit too purple, you might like to try it in taupe instead:
Kate’s third bag from Aspinal is the Blue Heart clutch:
Aspinal designed the bag in collaboration with another British brand Kate regularly wears, Beulah London. The two companies donated 25% of profits from each sale to the United Nations Blue Heart Campaign. Sadly, it’s no longer available to buy. (The black croc Mayfair clutch is a great alternative if you’re looking for something that’s a similar shape, size and print.)
