Kate Middleton and Princess Anne's favorite bag for travel and leisure has arrived in the Black Friday 2022 sales, and we're already ready to snap one up. 

Kate Middleton's favorite weekend handbag is on sale this Black Friday 2022, giving royal fashion fans a golden opportunity to snap up the Princess of Wales' trusty travel purse at a fraction of its original price. 

The Longchamp Le Pliage has long been a staple in the 41-year-old's enviable wardrobe, having made its debut appearance in 2005 at the duchess's graduation ceremony from the University of St. Andrew's. The princess has worn the French shoulder bag at numerous engagements since celebrating the academic milestone, typically teaming it with her elegant travel attire or comfortable athleisure looks. It's also believed she owns the Longchamp Le Pliage bag in black, brown, and red, meaning she'll never be stuck for color coordinating her outfit. 

Most recently, Kate was photographed with a long-handled Longchamp Le Pliage after returning to Kensington Palace from a visit to Cambridge in June. She also carried the bag in the shade 'Desert' at the Euros Final in July, pairing it with a Zara white blazer and those Kate Middleton statement red earrings to watch the exciting football tournament with Prince William and Prince George.

With its spacious interior and classic design, the Longchamp Le Pliage is the perfect balance of practicality and elegance. It's hardly surprising, therefore, that it's so popular with the royals, who are expected to always look polished while making back-to-back engagements. Both Meghan Markle and the Queen's only daughter are also fans of the Longchamp, with Princess Anne wearing one most recently on her low-profile October trip to New York.
