Kate Middleton has been spotted wearing her Aspinal of London bag on many occasions. In fact, we'd say that it's one of her favourite fashion brands of all time. If you didn't know, the 'Midi Mayfair Bag' is one of the royal's go-to accessories, and it's not hard to see why.

The black, croc print design is timeless, and can be styled with pretty much everything. However, one thing we've noticed is that the Princess of Wales tends to pair it with more wintery outfits.

Kate was pictured wearing the bag last year during a visit to Denmark, however, the royal has been opting for slightly lighter coloured bags as of late. Therefore, we bet the Princess will be delighted to know that her designer bag has had a serious upgrade, just in time for summer.

That's right, the brand have released not one, not two, but three dreamy raffia versions that will complement any outfit this season. We can totally see Kate wearing one of these.

We already predict that this bag will be a hit with royals and celebrities alike. We'll be adding ours to our basket ASAP.

If you don't manage to get your hands on it before it sells out, not to fear, as we've rounded up plenty of similar styles that we think Kate would love. Keep on scrolling to shop, and for more inspiration, don't forget to check out our guides to the best summer dresses and the best basket bags.

All of these bags have such a timeless shape, and we love the lighter colours and raffia details for spring and summer. We don't know about you, but we also think that they would make the perfect accessory for any upcoming weddings.
