Kate first carried the Black Croc version of the clutch in December 2020 during a visit to Edinburgh, where Strathberry is headquartered. It’s likely Kate chose the clutch for this reason (to showcase a local, Scottish brand).
One year later, Kate debuted the navy blue version of the bag, again during a visit to Scotland.
She used the clutch on the final day of the tour during the Closing Ceremony of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, and later for the Beating Retreat at Holyroodhouse.
The Duchess held the bag on the balcony as she watched the RAF flypast. You can just make it out in her hand:
Kate is clearly a fan of croc print—quite a few of her handbags feature the design.
About the Multrees Chain Wallet:
The rectangular-shaped wallet features Strathberry’s logo and iconic gold bar hardware on the front. The bag comes with a gold chain strap, which is removable (Kate doesn’t use the chain).
The bag is handcrafted in Spain using 100% calf leather. It’s finished with an embossed croc print design.
Strathberry call the Multrees Chain Wallet “understated and elegant” and “the perfect day-to-night companion.”
Wear it cross-body using the sleek gold chain for everyday ease, or carry it in your hand as a clutch for a dressed up evening look. The fold-over magnetic closure top is decorated with the signature Strathberry bar, and opens up to a surprisingly spacious interior featuring 8 card slots and a zipped pocket with a leather pull.Strathberry

Strathberry’s celebrity fans:
In addition to royalty, Strathberry can count A-Listers among its fans. Katie Holmes, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Vanessa Hudgens and Kate Hudson have all been spotted carrying bags from the brand.
The Edinburgh-based brand sells luxury leather goods. Husband-and-wife team Guy and Leeanne Hundleby launched the business in 2013.
With the name Strathberry, we really wanted to honour our Scottish roots and named the brand after the word Strath, meaning wide river valley in Scots. In the past, berries were used to dye the traditional Scottish fabric and materials. This is where Strathberry comes from.Leeanne Hundleby, Strathberry
