The Cambridges are undoubtedly the most talked-about family in the world, with their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis entertaining the public on the regular.
Yes, from Princess Charlotte’s signature sass and Prince George’s surprising nickname to Prince Louis’ love of interrupting zoom calls, these miniature royals never fail to make viral news.
It is the Duchess of Cambridge who makes the most headlines, from her multiple public appearances to the important reason why she carries her bag in her left hand. But what does she keep in her handbag? Four things remain a constant apparently, especially when on official engagements.
According to Marcia Moody’s Kate: A Biography, the Duchess always carries the same four items - whether she’s carrying a clutch bag or a travel holdall.
The items in question? A compact mirror, blotting paper, a handkerchief and lip balm.
You never know when a photo is coming, right?
And when she travels, Kate brings an extra item - her own Canon camera.
‘Since she has always been a keen photographer, she took her own Canon camera to snap some personal images’, Marcia Moody wrote of the Duchess.
Royals - they are just like us apparently!
Well, that’s that.
