Sharing the reason in 2019, Myka said: “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!”
She revealed this on her Instagram account alongside a photo of the late Princess Diana setting the example.
Unfortunately, the royals were unable to shake hands with those they have met during the coronavirus pandemic, with Prince Charles choosing to greet people with a Namaste instead.
Kate also made a wild fashion sacrifice with her handbag to impress the Queen at a past royal event, according to onlookers.
