Whether you have been rewatching The Crown before the next season, or have been to see the hotly anticipated Spencer at the cinema, you will have spotted at least one pair of iconic Wellington boots. And if you are wondering what these ubiquitous boots are that the Royals wear to walk the grounds of Balmoral, the answer is Hunter Wellingtons.

They hold two Royal Warrants of Appointment to HM The Queen and the late Duke of Edinburgh. Put simply, if they are good enough for royalty, then they are good enough for the rest of us. But prestige often comes at a price so we were delighted to see some Hunter favorites on sale this week.

One such pair is a variant of Princess Diana's go to – the Original Tall Hunter.

Princess Diana was rarely out of her favorite Hunter wellies when she was in the countryside and Prince Charles has been wearing the same style of Hunter Argyll boots for decades. 

Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall favors them whenever she's out and about and the Queen, while she doesn't wear branded Hunter boots, one assumes (remember that Royal Warrant) she wears a special one-off pair created just for her.
