Queen Elizabeth and her offspring may be known for their fancy dresses, bespoke suits, and opulent jewelry, but despite the grandeur, the wardrobes of the British Royal Family are quite eco-friendly. On the one hand, almost every member of the royal family is known to repeat outfits, which in itself is sustainable (reduce, reuse, to recycle). Prince Charles hates waste of all kinds and has even tried his own sustainable fashion line. As for Princess Diana, not only has she re-dressed some outfits, but the Princess of Wales has even had a few pieces remade in completely new designs (recycling!). For her wedding day, Princess Beatrice’s dress and tiara were on loan from the Queen’s closet, and she remade the shoes she wore to William and Kate’s wedding. The late Prince Philip is said to have worn the same pair of black shoes for more than 70 years. And in 2019, the Queen announced that she would no longer wear real fur.

But when it comes to fashion, no royal family is watched more closely than Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, both of whom have influence on style on a global scale. When you see one of them carrying something, it is almost certain that it will sell out immediately. It’s a responsibility the two duchesses take seriously, as they have each used their fashions to make statements about the types of brands they support. Here, find some of Kate and Meghan’s favorite sustainable and ethical fashion brands.
