Looks like Kate and Pippa Middleton aren't the only royal trend-setters
Forget the Middleton sisters, the stylish twosome aren't the only ones setting trends from within the Royal circle - the Queen is getting in on the action, too.
Her Majesty has prompted sales at Launer London - the design house behind her bespoke wedding day bag - to surge by 60 per cent following Prince William and Kate Middleton's nuptials.
And despite being a brand associated with more mature stylistas, the label has noted a growth in younger customers, with 20 per cent of new sales coming from women in the 35-50 age bracket.
The Monarch's bag was handcrafted in calfskin leather in a traditional box shape. It was not made especially for the wedding, although the day marked its public debut, with the Queen commissioning it two years ago.
The luxury brand has long been a favourite with the royals, counting the Queen Mother and Duchess of Cornwall as customers and gaining a Royal Warrant in 1981.
If you want to emulate HRH, you may need to save some pennies though - prices range from £375 all the way to £800.
