The Princess has carried the lilac bag twice in public so far.
She first debuted the bag at the Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit in October 2018. She matched the bag with her dress of a similar hue. She carried the handbag for a second time in March 2019, for a visit to the Henry Fawcett Children’s Centre. She paired the bag with a purple blouse and navy trousers.
About the Lilac Midi Mayfair Bag:
The Aspinal Mayfair Midi is a structured boxy bag with a detachable strap and a dainty top handle. The Mayfair bag is made of full-grain Italian leather with a mock croc print and comes with a gold metallic chain strap.
The front of the bag features Aspinal’s signature shield lock. The company logo is engraved on the bag’s hardware. It’s also embossed on the rear of the bag.
The purple bag is mid-sized, which means it is large enough to hold all of your essentials while remaining small and portable. The external slip pocket is ideal for keeping a small notebook, phone, or travel card handy. The internal pocket is divided into three sections, each of which is large enough to hold a small amount of makeup, a purse, and your phone. This bag is a timeless classic with vintage appeal.
Where to buy the Midi Mayfair Bag:
While Aspinal of London still stock the Midi Mayfair Bag (in 19 different designs at the time of writing), the lilac colour carried by Kate is discontinued. Never fear, here are two great alternatives:

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:
