We are back with our third and final Royal Tour poll, this one looking at accessories: bags, shoes, jewelry and a few miscellaneous items. Many of the items will look familiar, there are also few new pieces in the mix we think everyone will enjoy seeing again. The post is broken into four polls; one on handbags, another for shoes, a third for jewelry and a final mini-poll on things that stand on their own.


Our first item is the clutch carried for the couple’s arrival in Singapore when Kate was in the pink Jenny Packham dress, it was also carried for the Solomon Islands arrival, accessorizing the Jonathan Saunders Evelyn. Some believe this is a Jimmy Choo Cosma bag.
