    Yes, from Princess Charlotte’s signature sass and Prince George’s surprising nickname to Prince Louis’ hilarious first words, these miniature royals never fail to make viral news.

    Kate was already a conversation topic as it emerged that there’s an 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.
