KATE, Duchess of Cambridge, may have given a hint as to an important lesson she was taught as royal commentators analysed the royal’s most recent engagement by herself.
Kate, Duchess of Cambridge’s latest solo appearance sparked intense analysis from royal commentators. The royal visited the University of Derby to speak to students about how they are coping with the coronavirus pandemic. Royally Obsessed podcast hosts Roberta Fiorito and Rachel Bowie couldn’t help but notice something specific about the way the Duchess held herself.
Ms Fiorito told listeners: “During this particular outing, you really get a close-up on Kate’s clasped hands.
“I always think about how I hold myself in photos. It’s hard.
“She actually looks like she’s taking her forefinger and thumb and really intensely gripping her other thumb.
“It’s almost like she’s been taught to hold them that way.”

She continued: “So they’re clasped but it’s actually like she’s really pinching her thumb.
“It’s interesting and I encourage all royal fans to check it out.
“I might use it in my upcoming professional photos. I wonder if it makes you sit up straighter.
“It might make you feel a little bit more polished.”

The Duchess made the visit ahead of World Mental Health Day this weekend.
She asked about increased awareness among students about support and how it had been integrated into their education.
Many university attendees have found themselves forced to self-isolate in their accommodation after a surge in coronavirus cases.

Ms Bowie offered insight: “As we know, mental health is such a big topic for the royals.
“It’s really William and Kate’s biggest issue that they focus on.
“They’re very good at keeping this subject in the limelight.
“It’s so critical to have it in the limelight so it’s not taboo anymore.
“We all need so much mental health support, especially now with the pandemic.”
