The highly-anticipated third season of The Crown airs on Netflix this week, ushering in a new era of constitutional drama and personal scandals – as well as a fresh plate of royal style.

Set between 1964 and 1977, the new season depicts Queen Elizabeth II, played by Olivia Colman, as well as other members of the family in a delicious array of ’60s and ’70s-inspired looks, including plenty of bright, tonal outfits, statement headwear and, of course, an abundance of decadent jewels.

Although the Queen’s style has cranked up a notch this season, one consistency throughout the series – and in her real-life reign – is Her Majesty’s penchant for ladylike top-handle handbags.

The non-fictional Queen usually slings a black patent bag by British heritage brand Launer over her arm – but there’s an array of labels creating equally covetable top-handles. Here are nine of the best.
