Queen Elizabeth II often wears her go-to designer accessories brand Launer for royal engagements, and has been spotted with various handbags from the British label over the years.

The British monarch first showcased her arm candy in 1968, and, according to The Telegraph, has an impressive collection spanning over 200 bags from Launer alone.

The Queen’s enviable collection includes the black leather Royale bag, as well as a patent Traviata design.

To mark her majesty’s 94th birthday today, Launer has released three brand new designs, The Encore, The Judi and The Lucia, as a tribute to her on her special day.

The site reads: “In celebration of Her Majesty The Queen’s birthday on  April 21st, we have created three special handbags in shades of  blue, a colour closely associated with Royalty.

“The Lucia, The Judi and The Encore are a fitting tribute to honour the occasion and will have Royal Edition in gold blocking added to the leather plaque on the inside of each of these styles in these colours.”

The new designs in The Royal Edition capsule all follow the same colour scheme, as each design is a different shade of blue.

Plus each bag has “Royal Edition” emblazoned on them in gold font, as well as a leather plaque inside, and Launer’s signature motif on them, whether that is as a lock fastening or 3D emblem.

The Encore handbag, which retails for £1,530, is the largest of the trio.

It is made from a marine blue shade of calf’s leather, features suede lining inside, as well as numerous compartments inside, a fitted mirror and a large detachable strap.

The Judi handbag is a more colourful design as it is made up of three different shades of blue across the handle, the lid as well as the main body of the bag, and costs £1,550.

The Lucia is the smallest of all three designs, as it measures 19.75cm in length and 14 cm in height.

This handbag boats a light blue body and contrast marine blue leather shoulder handle, as well as gold motif, and will set you back £1,140.
