Queen Elizabeth Makes Launer London's Website Crash

After Queen Elizabeth carried custom Launer London handbags to all of her Diamond Jubilee events, the brand has reported a 58 percent increase in orders. The spending frenzy caused by Her Majesty's favorite purse seems to have reached Kate Middleton-wearing-Issa proportionsGrazia Daily reports that earlier this month, an influx of traffic caused Launer's website to crash.

The totes themselves are a big investment—they cost around £1020, or roughly $1585—but the shape is classic and matches everything. Although the royal's versions are all bespoke, you can find a similar option for yourself on Launer.com, which thankfully is back up and running.

Would you buy one of Queen Elizabeth's expensive carry-alls? Or are you more inspired by the Duchess of Cambridge's wallet-friend style?
