She’s a fashion icon, he’s a prince with classic British style, and together they're the world’s most followed couple.
The uber-in-love Duchess Kate and Prince William celebrated their three year wedding anniversary today after returning from a royal tour Down Under, and we couldn’t be more interested in finding out what gifts they might have exchanged.
While we anticipate the private duo will keep the details of their celebration to themselves, we took the liberty of imagining that they swapped gifts according to tradition, which dubs the third anniversary the year of leather.
Here’s TODAY's daydream list of leather gifts fit for royalty.
Smythson Runway textured leather notebook, $135, netaporter.com
Kate’s fashion decisions have become the envy of the world. This is no small feat. Luckily, British brand Smythson has created a notebook perfect for jotting down runway notes fit for a duchess. Available exclusively at Net-a-porter.
McQ Alexander McQueen white leather swallow wrap bracelet, $90, ssense.com
Three years ago, Alexander McQueen’s creative director Sarah Burton designed Kate’s stunning wedding dress, solidifying a fashion friendship with the royals. This year, the brand’s diffusion line, McQ, designed a white wrap-bracelet featuring a swallow. The bird symbolizes love and loyalty, romantic and fitting for an anniversary.
Leather metal bar clutch bag, $45, topshop.com
The Duchess is one royal not afraid to mix high and low. Topshop’s butter yellow clutch falls in line with Kate's down-to-Earth style.
Tory Burch "robinson" large passport holder in evening sky, $135, toryburch.com
Duchess Kate wowed in a Tory Burch dress while in New Zealand, and as with everything she puts on, she sparked royal fever. This logo closure passport case from the brand, in a glossy evening sky blue, would be perfect for the couple’s many travels.
Mulberry heart rivet keyring, $120, mulberry.com
Key fobs are the “it” gift item of the moment. Mulberry’s heart-shaped ring in black goat leather has three hearts, one to represent each member of the young family. Kate’s love for the brand has been heavily documented throughout her marriage, from the Polly tote she once regularly carried to the most recent clutch spotted on the 2014 royal tour.
Gifts for William
Burberry logo-embossed money clip, $130, neimanmarcus.com
It is hard to imagine Kate’s fashionable eye wouldn’t influence her gift giving. Burberry, the British luxury fashion house, is a natural first choice where she could pick up a masculine and discreet money clip for her man.
Timex Premium Functional Technology, $120, timex.com
Kate's been spotted out-and-about wearing a jaw-droppingly luxurious Cartier watch recently, reportedly a gift from the prince. Perhaps she will follow his lead with a modest Timex time piece with leather band.
Paul Smith yellow leather card case, $150, paulsmith.co.uk
Another iconic U.K. designer to consider is Paul Smith, as the brand’s preppy designs match well with the prince's style. We're hoping Kate chose a men’s card case in yellow to quietly jab him back for reportedly saying her yellow dress made her look like a "banana" — she looked amazing!
Oliver Spencer red suede belt, $140, mrporter.com
Kate’s playfulness compliments the prince’s preppy style — perhaps she encouraged him to add a pop of color to his British belt.
Alden travel shoe care kit, $130, jcrew.com
With all the traveling these two do, Alden’s travel shoe repair kit sounds like the ideal gift. The bundle treats shoes to some much needed TLC after, say, a 19-day tour of Australia and New Zealand.
