The Princess of Wales is known to favor certain labels and wear their creations on repeat. Case in point: Strathberry. Recently, the British beauty has sported multiple clutches and micro bags from the leather goods manufacturer.

Specializing in clean and contemporary silhouettes, Strathberry is known for their structural bags and striking signature bar closure. The iconic hardware is the brand’s most recognizable feature — a metal bar adds a bit of edginess and elegance to each bag. Inspired by the aesthetic of sheet music briefcases, the bars are all crafted by hand and added to each and every Strathberry handbag.

Modern and minimalist creations define the elegant leather accessory retailer which is named ‘Strath’ after the wide river valleys in Scots. While the ‘berry’ is also a tribute to Scotland and the berries that were once used to dye Scottish fabrics and materials.

The brand designs their luxurious bags and accessories in Scotland and handcrafts their collections in Spain. Founded in 2011 by husband and wife team Guy Hundleby and Leeanne Hundleby, the Edinburgh based brand has become a go-to handbag house for British royal ladies.

Here are all of Kate Middleton’s Favorite Strathberry Handbags:

Strathberry Multress Chain Wallet in Black Croc

This croc-effect bag is crafted by Spanish artisans and is equipped with a chain that can be worn across the body. A flap top with a magnetic closure gives this wallet plenty of panache. Refined and sophisticated, the compact clutch is decorated with the brand’s signature gold bar and has eight card slots on the interior. Paying tribute to her hosts in Edinburgh, Kate did a bit of diplomatic dressing when she carried this bag in the capital of Scotland for the Royal Train Tour in December 2020. She paired the black bag with a teal blue coat (in the colors of the Scottish flag) from Catherine Walker and Stuart Weitzman half and half knee high black suede riding boots.


Strathberry Multress Chain Wallet in Navy Embossed Croc

This handcrafted wallet bears the Strathberry trademark music bar closure and has a detachable gold chain strap. There is a zipped interior pocket with a leather pull and eight interior slots for organizing driver’s license, health insurance and credit cards. The princess has carried the sleek statement clutch on two occasions including for a visit to attend the Closing Ceremony of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland at Assembly Hall in Edinburgh in May 2021 and paired with an ivory Alexander McQueen A-line crepe coatdress for Trooping the Colour in June 2022.

Strathberry Mosaic Nano Bag in Vanilla

A recent addition to Princess Kate’s collection of stylish Strathberrys, this petite top handle bag is perfect for small essentials like a cellphone and wallet. Crafted entirely in Spain, the bag is inspired by Scottish artist Eduardo Paolozzi’s sculpture works and graphic art. Made with soft malleable leather and a miniature bar closure, this bag was first spotted on Princess Kate for her ‘Together at Christmas’ carol concert in December 2023.


Strathberry Multress Chain Wallet in Vanilla/Diamond

Proving her allegiance to the chic and compact clutches of Strathberry, Kate carried this colorblock wallet for the first time in June 2023 at the Order of the Garter ceremony. Pairing the day-to-evening clutch with an Alessandra Rich polka dot dress with a wrap waist, the royal looked like a retro movie star.


The Princess of Wales isn’t the only super fan of Strathberry; in fact, many of the ladies in the British royal family covet the crossbody, clutches and compact mini and micro bags from the Scottish brand.
