A press favourite, the Mini Venice is as cute as it is practical. Crafted in luxurious cowhide leather, this little gem is lightweight, making it perfect for long days out. Choose to wear it over the shoulder, cross-body or by its ladylike handle.

Meghan wore the bag on a number of occasions, including a visit to Cardiff with Prince Harry in 2018. And she isn't the only royal fan either, as Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall has also worn the exact same style, though in different colours, on numerous occasions.

Other Royals including Pippa Middleton and Princess Beatrice are fans of the brand and have been spotted wearing past season designs, so it definitely has the royal seal of approval.

We know the Duchess of Sussex is also a fan of sustainable fashion, and DeMellier is produced ethically and sustainably. The leather is sourced from a leading Italian tannery awarded Gold rating by the European Leather Group and the canvas is made in Spain of organic cotton.

The bags are handcrafted in DeMellier’s trusted family-owned factory in the South of Spain. Their A Bag, A Life program means that for every bag purchased, a donation is made to SOS Children's Villages—a charity that funds vaccines and medical treatments for children in over 136 countries.

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.
