Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has returned to royal duties in her signature style after a two-month break.

The 39-year-old stepped out on Wednesday in the UK to visit an airbase in Oxfordshire, where she met with members of the RAF and volunteers.

She spoke with them about their vital roles in helping thousands of people flee Afghanistan last month, following the Taliban’s takeover of Kabul.

Royal watchers were glad to see the duchess back in action wearing a Reiss blazer in a trendy neutral hue, paired with slim navy trousers and a simple blouse by Jane Atelier.

But it was her chic Tusting handbag that had them smitten.

The duchess is known for her impeccable taste in clutches, totes and bags, and this one is no different.

The Mini Holly leather bag retails for just over $460 and is available in six colours, Catherine opting for a taupe shade that goes well with any outfit.

Launched in 2020, the bag is handmade in England with high quality leather and was inspired by the styles of the 1950s.

But there’s nothing outdated about this style, which plays into the 2021 trend of tiny purses with all the elegance we’ve come to expect from Catherine.
