Kate might switch up her shoe choices quite a bit (we can almost hear her say, “Which trainers shall I wear today – my Superga or New Balance?”), but when it comes to outerwear, she has a tendency to always reach for one of her trusty jackets from British brand Barbour.

The good news is that now, with winter sales in full swing, you can find Princess Kate’s favourite Barbour coats and jackets on sale at shops like John Lewis, Very, House of Fraser and Flannels, and US retailers Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue.

The Princess of Wales has worn Barbour jackets to a host of her more laid-back royal engagements, whether to meet with Scouts, visit the countryside or even play football. And she also has various models in her closet, from quilted jackets to utilitarian pocketed styles.
For her 10th wedding anniversary video with William in May 2021, she appeared to have chosen the brand once again.
In November 2020, Kate wore the now sold-out Barbour x Alexa Chung ‘Edith’ jacket as she spoke about the findings of the “5 Big Questions” survey about childhood development via Instagram, but that was just one high-profile moment when she sported a Barbour look.
