And yet, Burberry has remained a favourite among the younger royals too. Just a few weeks ago the Princess of Wales wore a quilted Burberry jacket in its distinctive tartan print during a trip to Scotland. She paired the dark green coat – which more traditionally is seen in a tan colour with jeans and her usual bouncy brown curls. During her first royal appearance in 2018 in Scotland, Meghan Markle also chose to wear a long, double-breasted dark tartan coat for the occasion. The Burberry plaid was an apt choice in Scotland and she completed the outfit with Veronica Beard trousers, a black turtleneck by Wolford and a Strathberry bag.
The Burberry look seems to cross the spectrum of the Royal Family. This September, Queen Camilla wore a beige mac around her shoulders to shield her from the rain at a Navy flight deck in the South of France. She draped the coat over a turquoise dress by Anna Valentine and carried a Charlotte Elizabeth bag.
Princess Beatrice was also spotted in a Burberry coat in New York this month. Her chosen outwear – aptly named ‘The Kensington’ channelled British style overseas; she completed the look with a silk dress and Jimmy Choo heels. And history has seen Burberry be championed by the Royals too. Princess Diana matched with her then husband, Charles, the Prince of Wales, while on holiday in Nova Scotia in 1983. The couple matched in long Burberry trench coats – a look much loved by Diana who often sported one.
