Kate Middleton has been spotted with band-aids on her hands, leading royal observers to wonder why.
The mystery behind the fabric covering has had royals fans wondering if it’s accident-prone.
She was carrying band-aids in her hands again while out walking in Cardiff.
The Duchess of Cambridge again wore a new cast on her right thumb as she attended the anniversary event at the castle with Prince William.
BristolLive reports that she and two of her children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, were happy to shake hands with fans despite their illness.
She wore a long red coat and appeared to be in good health after the Platinum Jubilee weekend euphoria.
But she again left royal fans wondering about another in a long line of patches she has never publicly explained.
Frequently displayed, the pink patches leave everyone guessing as she waves to the public and holds hands with her family.
There has been speculation as to why Kate is often in a cast – but is known to be a keen cook – and also grows her own vegetables.
She’s also a mother to three young children – and as any parent knows, it’s not just the kids who get injured in the rough and stormy terrain.
In 2019, it was noticed that the Duchess wore a different one when she appeared at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
She was spotted in November 2018 when she was spotted with a small circular mark on her finger.
In 2016, the Duchess wore the tape on her left thumb as she led her then-1-year-old daughter Princess Charlotte away from a church service in Berkshire.
Kate was then spotted with one of the items on her left hand – just a day after meeting the cat star from A Street Cat Named Bob.
Days later, the Duchess was spotted with a band-aid on the side of her hand as she arrived at the Royal Albert Hall for the annual Royal Festival of Remembrance.
Speculation suggests the outdoor-loving queen sustained minor injuries while gardening, one of her favorite times of the past.
When previously questioned about the patches, Buckingham Palace insisted: “We have no comment on the patches.”
While the bandages can hide unsightly nicks and bruises, not all experts say they are entirely helpful for healing.
dr Anton Alexandroff, a spokesman for the Consultant Dermatologist & British Skin Foundation, told the Express: “Wearing patches isn’t as helpful because the skin doesn’t breathe as well and it takes longer to heal.
“As a mom, you wash your hands all the time, so it’s important to moisturize regularly. Using a moisturizer is the best way to heal a scratch.”
