Kate Middleton carries the small Mulberry Amberley bag in black croc.
To date, we’ve seen her carry the bag six times in public.
She first carried the small black bag on a visit to Trinity Buoy Wharf, a centre for arts and culture in East London, on the 3rd of February 2022 (pictured above).
She carried the bag for a second time in Copenhagen, Denmark on the 24th of February 2022. We saw her with the bag for a third time during a visit to ATC Pirbright in September 2022, for the fourth time during a visit to South Wales in February 2023, the fifth time during a St. David’s Day Parade in March 2023 and the six time during a visit to Aberfan, South Wales in March 2023.
You can tell that the Princess is a fan of these small top-handled box bags. We’ve seen her carry 9 or 10 similar styles recently.
She clearly keeps abreast of new trends: micro and mini bags are having a moment in the world of fashion!
About Kate’s Mulberry Amberley bag:
The black croc print black bag features a flap-over front with tonal black ring hardware and Mulberry’s geometric rider’s lock closure. Its suede-lined interior provides a touch of luxury. The bag is from Mulberry’s equestrian-inspired Amberley collection.
The leather bag comes with a crossbody strap, which Kate removed (she often does this with her bags, opting to carry them in her hand instead).
Where can I buy Kate Middleton’s bag?
If you were hoping to buy Kate’s exact Mulberry bag, I’m sorry to say you’re out of luck. The piece is from an older season and now sold out. Try the new season Amberley satchel instead.
GET THE LOOK: New Season Mulberry Amberley Satchel in Black
Need a new black bag in your life? Disappointed that Kate’s is sold out? Try the new season Amberley Satchel. The chic style features the same dainty top handle and elegant rider’s lock closure. Kate also owns this design in green.
Otherwise, let me suggest the Mayfair bag from Aspinal of London (below). Kate carries it frequently, it’s quite similar in size, shape and look, it’s around the same price-point and is still available to buy

Here she is with the Amberley clutch in dark blush pink. She carried it to the Kantor Centre of Excellence in 2018.
Is Mulberry one of Kate Middleton’s favourite bag brands?
I’d say so, yes. Mulberry is definitely one of Kate’s go-to brands. The Princess regularly carries Mulberry handbags and clutches to public engagements—I’ve counted ten different bags from the company in her collection over the last decade as a working royal (and a few more before that).

The photo on the right shows Kate at Heathrow Airport in 2011, preparing to depart for Canada ahead of the Royal Tour. She’s carrying the Polly Push Lock style in blue.

Mulberry is an English company, founded in Somerset in the 1970s. Today, the brand’s headquarters are still located in the county. It started as a family business, with the founder creating belts at his kitchen table using leather offcuts. His sister designed the company’s now-iconic tree logo and his mother loaned him £500 to start the business. Over the decades, the company developed into a truly global British brand.
Mulberry is known for its luxury leather goods and timeless design.
Mulberry’s heritage is quintessentially British. Early inspiration was drawn from London’s dynamism, combined with styles synonymous with English rural pursuits – hunting, shooting, fishing – and Mulberry’s utterly individual style came to be dubbed “Le Style Anglais”. The idea still inspires us. Between town and country, between Somerset serenity and London energy, Mulberry combines authentic, age-honoured craft with an innovative edge. Heritage meets a modern sense of rebellion – the rules are broken to make something new.Mulberry.com
Kate’s crazy for croc!
