The Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton as she’s still known by many), first wore the Cornelia James Beatrice Gloves at the National Service of Remembrance in November 2017.
A few months later, she chose the gloves again. This time for a visit to Coventry (January 2018). She’s worn them on several occasions since.
About the Beatrice bow gloves:
Cornelia James makes the gloves to order using merino wool sourced from Australia. They feature a neat little bow secured to the front of the cuff.
The Beatrice gloves are designed to be practical, warm and stylish. They come in nine different colours, navy blue, taupe, black, biscuit, plum elephant grey, forest green, chocolate brown and red.
The gloves retail for £75, which is around $92 USD at the time of writing. The company ships all over the world.
Cornelia James has held a Royal Warrant since 1978.
The company first made a pair of gloves for The Queen back in 1947, when she was still Princess Elizabeth. The gloves formed part of the princess’s ‘going away outfit’ following her marriage to Prince Philip.
We are glove makers. That is really all we do. But we try to do it really well and we have been doing it for a long time.
