Kate Middleton has great taste when it comes to mini handbags. Whether she's spotted with a Polène purse or an Aspinal of London Midi Mayfair Bag, the Princess of Wales has an eye for picking chic accessories, and we're always on the lookout to see what she'll carry next. So, when the royal went to visit the Welsh Guards in honor of St David's Day, we immediately spotted her black croc Amberley handbag from Mulberry, which she's touted on a number of occasions.

We first saw Princess Catherine carry this handbag in February 2022. The crocodile-embossed piece is a crossbody bag which the royal opts to carry by its handle instead of using the body strap. It features ring hardware on the front, which helps to secure the flap that opens from the top.

This time around, the Princess of Wales paired the piece with black gloves, Gianvito Rossi boots and a bright red coat from Alexander McQueen. She also sported a playful black hat and wore a silver leek brooch pinned to her lapel (leeks are associated with Wales).

If you're wondering—Princess Catherine's tasteful mini handbag is from an equestrian collection released by Mulberry. But sadly, it is no longer for sale, so you can't find this exact style of the bag anymore. However, you can still purchase a small Amberley Leather Crossbody Bag from Mulberry ($1,035) that is quite similar here. This bag simply has a rounder shape and the hardware is gold instead of black.

Check out the bag below, and if you're not looking to spend that much, we've also provided four cheaper alternatives (you're welcome).
