Princess Kate's Purse Is Probably Older Than Yours (and It's Older Than Her Kids, Too!)

Since she married Prince William in 2011, Princess Kate has reigned as Queen of the Rewear.

But her go-to bag may be her favorite fashion essential of all – and it's been on her arm even longer than her children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte. She was even carrying it before her marriage to William.

It's her gray Tod's D-Bag, which Kate has been rocking as early as 2009. The favorite piece made a reappearance last week when popped over to a Lululemon on King's Road in London's Chelsea neighborhood (where she lived pre-royal wedding!).

The bag, which can retail for up to $1,665, is a reincarnation of a style favorited by another famous royal. Back in the '90s, her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, frequently toted around an earlier version of the D-Bag. Diana's bag was a more structured take on the classic – and hers was a caramel-hued brown, as compared to Kate's gray.

And no, the "D" in D-Bag isn't a coincidence: Diana was such a big fan of her D-Bag that the brand posthumously named it for her.

It's not the only Tod's bag Kate owns: Back in 2010, she wore the brand's G-Bag in tan to a polo match.
