She maybe a royal monarch, but Queen Elizabeth is a lot like us when it comes to fashion. We found out that the Queen — like any other girl —has a favorite handbag designer. Her go-to brand is London-based label Launer, which has long been providing her purses. According to the company’s CEO, more than 200 bags have been supplied to her Majesty.
Of course, this is no ordinary go-to handbag. Each purse costs about £1,650 (or $2,346 USD), and some more exotic renditions can go as high as up to £5,000! The Queen has hundreds of the brand’s purses in a variety of styles and colors, but her ultimate favorite is the classic ‘Traviata’ tote in black and patent.

We’re not surprised with the Queen’s decision to pick this brand as her go-to purse brand. The designs are classic and lady-like. The design itself is easily wearable with anything, regardless of season and event. But, be prepared to do some splurging because these beauties come with pretty hefty prices tags!
