Shoppers will be able to bag their own piece of royal fashion at a festive fair this month.
TROY London, a luxury women's outerwear brand favoured by Kate Middleton, will be selling its wares at the Norfolk Christmas Fair at the Octagon Barn, Little Plumstead on November 24.
The Duchess of Cambridge sported the brand's khaki wax parka during her and husband Prince William's recent tour of British Columbia, Cananda.
The brand, based in Hilborough near Mundford, was designed to fill a gap in the market for elegant but practical clothing for women who love the outdoors. Established by sisters Rosie van Cutsem and Lucia Ruck Keene in 2013, it is favoured by fashionistas such as Poppy Delevigne and Jaquetta Wheeler.
Mrs van Cutsem, said: 'We just knew there was a market for beautifully cut outerwear that responds to the trends in the fast moving fashion scene, but with timeless elegance and practicality.
'We put a big emphasis on sourcing only the highest quality materials and combine this with 'Made in Britain' manufacturing and craftsmanship. The response has been fantastic.'
Mrs Ruck Keene, said the parka worn by the duchess has been a continual best seller.

A new belted suede gilet, curlew cape, racoon fur wrist straps and pom pom hats will be on the pair's stall at the Norfolk Christmas Fair alongside the brand's signature coats.
They will be among 40 stallholders offering a wide range of present ideas from handmade jewellery to homeware and textiles.
The fair is open from 9am to 3pm and entry is £5. Proceeds from the event will be donated to Thornage Hall, a charity near Holt which provides adults with learning disabilities with supported living as well as learning and working opportunities.
Fundraising is specifically for a new activity room, with last year's fair raising £18,000 towards the project. If the funds can be raised, building is set to commence in 2017/18.
