You probably have your go to brands that you continue to go back to for outfit after outfit – but we’re guessing they aren’t in the price range of Chanel and Gucci. Each member of the royal family is allocated a seasonal clothing budget, and the likes of Kate Middleton have gotten damn good at spending it. These are the 5 designers frequently spotted on the backs (and the behinds) of the world’s royalty.
The American designer is known for his iconic handbags and tailored workwear, so it isn’t any surprise he is a favorite with royalty and politicians alike. Kate Middleton was spotted in a gorgeous Michael Kors boucle coat at the Australian War Memorial in 2014 and we still love this look.
As one of the oldest and most prestigious designers around, it is probably no surprise to you that Chanel is frequently photographed on the royal family. Charlotte Casiraghi of Monaco wore a stunning Chanel ensemble to the 62nd Rose Ball in 2016.
Dolce & Gabbana
The Italian fashion powerhouse is a favourite with the Danish Princess Mary, who has been spotted in their designs upwards of 10 separate occasions. Kate Middleton is a fan of their lace midi dresses, which she has worn in various shades throughout year.
For black tie gowns, the royals don’t go further than Jenny Packham. Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden wore a stunning silver Jenny Packham gown to a function at The Grand Hotel in 2013, and fellow royals followed suit.
He’s British fashion royalty, so it’s no surprise that Alexander McQueen is Kate Middleton’s go to designer. Her wedding dress was designed by Sarah Burton, who took over the role of creative director at McQueen after the tragic death of it’s founder and namesake.
