Which bag does Kate Middleton carry? What brands are her favourites? (Updated: 2022)
After counting the bags in Kate’s collection and how often she carries them, I’d say she is most loyal to L.K. Bennett, Emmy London, Alexander McQueen, Jimmy Choo, Prada and Mulberry. She also likes Aspinal of London, Smythson and Strathberry too (she has multiple bags in her collection from these brands!)

What type of handbag does Kate Middleton carry?
Kate's handbag taste has clearly evolved over the last ten years. We've seen her carry a variety of bags to her public appearances. In the early years of her marriage, she favoured small boxy clutches that held nothing more than a lipstick. Today, she tends to gravitate towards large clutches and midi-sized bags with top handles. This is something Vogue magazine have noticed too. They wrote that Kate's collection of "ladylike top handle bags has become a true hallmark of her royal style".
Kate's choice of bag is often simple and classic. In fact, you could say her handbags and clutches are a reflection of her style in general: chic, understated and timeless. She tends to opt for practical-sized bags with plenty of room for the necessities. I'd say her bags are easy to wear, often plain in colour with minimal adornment. This allows her to switch them seamlessly between outfits.
Kate Middleton's Affordable Bag Brands:
You wouldn't expect Kate to be on a budget as she has access to substantial sums of money when planning outfits for royal engagements. Despite this, she's been known to carry bags from affordable brands, including Hobbs, Reiss and Jaeger. The bags she owns from those brands all cost under £150 ($202).
Does Kate Middleton ever wear crossbody bags?
She owns quite a few other crossbody styles too. But we've only seen her carry them during public engagements, with the strap removed.
The new handbags Kate Middleton has added to her collection in 2022:
To date, Kate has only carried one new handbag. She added the Mulberry small Amberley in black croc to her collection in February this year. She has not carried any other bag in 2022 (yet!)
