Bizarre Strict Beauty Rules That Women In The Royal Family Must Follow
Clutches only for royal women.
Royals are discouraged from carrying large handbags. And no, it’s not because they have handlers around at all times to carry their belongings. The women are encouraged to carry small clutches or purses, usually in or on their left hand or arm, to keep their hand occupied. When their hands are holding a clutch, it discourages the public from reaching out and trying to shake their hands. According to royal etiquette expert William Hanson, royal protocol dictates that you don’t extend your hand to any member of the royal family. You are only to return the gesture if they extend their hand first.
