Even though it seems as if we've already dissected Kate Middleton's style every which way, I won't be stopped from writing more articles about royals for Who What Wear. I have to give the people what they want! And they want royal content, so here we go. 

Today, I'd like to focus on the Princess of Wales's handbag collection. Her enviable collection includes styles from Chanel, Mulberry, DeMellier, Polène, Anya Hindmarch, Aspinal of London, and more. Below, I've rounded up some of Middleton's favorite handbags, plus affordable alternatives for your shopping pleasure.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 13 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
