Handbag designer Christopher Shellis has created the world’s most expensive clutch bag that is laced with diamonds and pearls, perfect for the modern day princess.
It would not look out of place among the collection of the jewels in the Tower of London itself. It could easily be worn by any royal princess.

The Du Palais bag, which is embellished with 345 diamonds, 18ct gold clasps and has a 1,000-year guarantee, costs a staggering £105,000 and took inspiration from the gates at Buckingham Palace.
However, despite its traditional and incredibly regal appearance its design proves to be thoroughly modern with the inclusion of a secret compartment where an iPhone can be easily concealed.
