The founder of an up-and-coming fashion brand has given her fashion predictions for the guests at this week’s Royal wedding.

As the countdown now gets serious before Prince Harry and Megan Markle's impending nuptials, Katie Sykes, founder of Katherena Ltd, has outlined her thoughts on the ‘ones to watch’.

She said: "Royal Wedding guests will be given strict dress codes and the immediate family will know that they have strict style credentials to uphold. We'd expect to see The Queen choosing a bag from her classic go-to designer, Launer. The Queen favours a range of colours and styles and loves to match her bag with her outfit, so expect to see something discreet, utterly appropriate and beautifully in style and season. Kate Middleton is a fan of LK Bennett, and I think she will opt for a sophisticated, narrow clutch bag and let the nanny deal with the children's essentials in the background! As for Princess Beatrice, she also loves a good clutch bag, but I'd expect her to embrace something a little more cutting-edge and jazzy, such as an embellished bag or more of a statement look."

Royal wedding attendees know that they could end up featured in every fashion magazine as part of the post-event style analysis, and the perfect outfit is an absolute must-have to be noticed for the right reasons, explains Katie.

She added: A great bag is always the hallmark of a superbly constructed outfit and the accessory that stylish women always consider carefully. After all, not only does it have to carry essentials on the day, but the logo, style and finish are likely to come under scrutiny too.”

Katie also has great advice for fashionistas everywhere looking to upgrade their accessory wardrobe for spring.

She said: "Satchels are a hot look right now and very popular as a modern shape. The freshest satchels tend to come in tan, nude or blush pinks this season, which could look beautiful with classic wedding wardrobe colours. Visible logos are also fashionable again and featured in print on fabrics - think the classic Louis Vuitton look for inspiration."
