Royals and Chanel often go hand-in-hand. Princess Grace of Monaco would regularly wear the French fashion house’s signature skirt suits and tweed coats, including for a visit from Prince Philip in 1966. It’s a tradition that’s been continued by the Monégasque royal family, with Grace Kelly’s daughter, Princess Caroline of Hanover, and granddaughters, including Pauline Ducruet and Charlotte Casiraghi all being fans of Chanel (the latter even appeared on the runway during the brand’s spring 2022 couture show, on horseback).
The British royal family has been pictured wearing Chanel, too, with Princess Diana sporting a number of designs by Karl Lagerfeld during the 1980s and 1990s. The current Princess of Wales has also worn several pieces by the French fashion house over the years, including a vintage Chanel blazer dating back to 1995. Meanwhile, the Queen Consort and Duchess of Sussex own a number of Chanel handbags between them—proving that even a royal can’t resist the allure of a classic investment piece by the brand.
