The royal family loves their sunglasses. From Princess Anne's sporty specs to Meghan Markle's enviable collection of sunnies, the royals are experts on choosing just the right pairs to blend classic elegance and cool. So, it's only naturally that with summer upon us, the royals are also the perfect people to turn to for some sunglasses inspiration. Fortunately for those of us not on a royal budget (or just not willing to spend a mint) several of the royal family's favorite sunglasses brands also happen to be on sale during Amazon Prime Day.
No brand of sunglasses has garnered quite as potent a royal seal of approval as Ray-Ban. In fact, it's harder to find a royal who doesn't love these classic shades than one who does. A full roster of princes (Charles, William, and Harry) as well as a slew of royal ladies including Princess Diana, Kate Middleton, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, are fans. The classic Wayfarer style is a particular standout for the family, though Kate has been known to wear the New Wayfarers and Youngster silhouettes as well. Even better: for Prime Day, Amazon is offering up to 25% off of the polarized versions of several of these styles, which offers an extra sporty edge.
Illesteva is also a standing favorite among the royals. Meghan has donned several pairs of their sunnies, including the Palm Beach style, which she wore to the Invictus Games in 2018. The Leonards in particular are a family favorite; Meghan wore a pair of them to the 2018 Wimbledon tennis tournament with her sister-in-law Kate Middleton, while Zara Tindall, the daughter of Princess Anne, sported a set to the Cheltenham Festival in 2020. Right now, several different colorways of the shades are on sale on Amazon, including a mirrored pair with tortoiseshell frames, a pair in a smokey brown gradient, and a honey colored set.
Lastly, back in 2019, shortly before the birth of little Archie, Meghan made a special trip to New York to celebrate the impending arrival of her firstborn with some of her nearest and dearest. During the trip, the future Duchess of Sussex made some serious waves by sporting a covetable pair of Le Specs Air Heart sunglasses. Later that year, she also wore a pair of the brand's Bandwagon silhouette to Wimbledon. And while both pair already start at a wonderfully approachable price point (the Air Hearts usually start at a thrifty $69) right now they're an even better bargain, with pairs up to 50% off right now.
