Kate Middleton's Sweet Reason For Carrying Her Bag In Her Left Hand Revealed

The Duchess of Cambridge is
often out on public engagements and is almost always seen carrying her bag in
her left hand. If you haven’t noticed it before, we bet it will be all you see
when you next get a glance at the Duchess.

Whether it be a classic clutch
or dainty purse, Kate is usually seen carrying a bag in her left hand at royal
events, despite being right-handed.

She isn’t the only one either;
back when the Duchess of Sussex was a senior working member of the
royal family, she too would often be spotted carrying her purse in her left
hand, despite also being right-handed.

Well, wonder no more because
according to etiquette expert Myka Meier, there is a simple explanation behind
it, and it’s all to do with greetings.

Attending the many functions
that she does as a royal, Kate holds her bag in her left hand so that she can
keep her right hand free to greet and shake hands with guests.

Sharing the reason on her
Instagram account alongside a photo of the late Princess Diana setting the
example, Myka wrote in 2019: “Royal Etiquette Hack: When entering a room
or event, handbags or briefcases are held in the LEFT hand so that your right-hand stays open to meet, greet and shake hands! Prince Charles does this
too!”

Unfortunately, the Royals were
unable to shake hands with those they have met during the coronavirus pandemic,
with the likes of Prince Charles taking to greeting people with a
Namaste instead.
