it has been revealed that the ever-stylish Duchess, always ensures that she keeps her handbag in her left hand, after she learned the technique from her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana. Etiquette expert Myka Meier revealed on Instagram that Diana would do this, so she was able to have her right hand free when greeting people.
Alongside pictures of Princess Diana carrying her bag in her left hand, Ms Meier wrote: “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!”
