9 Designers Every Royal Just Loves to Wear
We all have a few favorite designers or go-to retailers we hit up when we need new clothes. And though our closets might not look like Kate Middleton's or Michelle Obama's (to think of the coordination!), they too stock their preferred labels in bulk. There are certain fashion houses that simply work wonders on the royals.
