Queen Consort Camilla has seemingly followed a couple of Queen Elizabeth’s style rules; wearing one block colour so everyone can see her on public engagements for example. More recently, Camilla stepped out with a black Launer London clutch – the same brand that made the late Queen’s iconic handbags.

Earlier this week, senior members of the Royal Familly attended the annual Commonwealth Day Service.

Camilla chose a matching cobalt blue coat, dress and hat for the occasion, with black accessories, and the fabulous Queen Mary’s Russian Sapphire Cluster Brooch.

In her hands, she carried Launer London’s Tosca clutch that retails for £1,450 and can be customised to the owner’s liking.

The brand confirms Camilla owns this clutch on the website: “Spotted beneath the arms of the [former] Duchess of Cornwall, this dazzling clutch has a truly regal pedigree.

“Each item is handmade to order using our fine traditional craftsmanship,” the product description reads.

The clutch features a gold-plated logo, a gold chain handle that Camilla prefers not to use, and a leather-covered mirror.

Camilla not only wore it on Commonwealth Day, but she has also used it at recent events such as Kate, Princess of Wales’ Christmas Carol Concert in December, and the first state visit of King Charles’s reign in November.

In a touching tribute to Queen Elizabeth, Camilla also carried the black clutch bag at her funeral in September.

The late monarch, however, preferred the Turandot and Traviata style handbags, which she would elegantly drape over her arm with the handle.

The Turandot is priced at £2,600 and “is a beautiful peggy bag with an inside frame”. The Traviata “is a top handle handbag crafted in finest calf leather” and is priced at £2,400.

Launer London’s CEO Gerald Bodmer previously spoke to Vogue about Queen Elizabeth using the brand’s handbags.

It is believed Queen Elizabeth received her very first Launer handbag from the Queen Mother in the 1950s, but Gerald was unable to confirm if this was a fact to Vogue.

But he did say she owned “five or 10, maybe 11” Launer bags in different colours and styles, saying she preferred to reuse beloved styles, and instead of throwing away old styles, she would simply add to her collection.

He said: “She once told me that she doesn’t feel dressed without a bag, and I completely agree, of course.”

The Queen’s final picture – stood by a fireplace dressed in a kilt, cardigan, blouse and her trust heels in Balmoral, ready to welcome Liz Truss – saw a glossy Launer handbag tucked neatly beside her.

Camilla is not the only royal to carry on Queen Elizabeth’s tradition of owning a Launer London bag, Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh also has a smaller version of Camilla’s clutch; she was spotted using the High Society clutch for Queen Elizabeth’s funeral.

Each Launer bag is handmade and takes around eight hours to complete, hence the considerable price tags.

Both Camilla and Queen Elizabeth visited the Launer factory in Walsall to see where and how the handbags are made.
