She was pictured wearing a long red coat and seemed to be in good health after the euphoria of the Platinum Jubilee weekend. But she he left royal fans again wondering about another in a long line of plasters which she has never explained publicly.
The pink-coloured plasters are frequently on show, leaving everyone guessing as she waves to the public and holds hands with her family. Speculation has mounted as to why Kate often has plaster – but is well known that she is a keen cook – and also grow her own vegetables. She’s also the mum of three young children – and as every parent knows it’s not just the children who get injured in the rough and tumble.
In 2019 it was noticed the Duchess was wearing another as she appeared at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. She was spotted in November 2018 when she was seen with a small circular patch on her finger. In 2016, the Duchess wore the tape on her left thumb as she guided her then one-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 feline star of A Street Cat Named Bob.
Days later, the Duchess was seen wearing a plaster on the side of her hand as she arrived at the Royal Albert Hall for the annual Royal Festival of Remembrance. Speculation suggests that the outdoor-loving royal sustained minor injuries while out gardening, one of her favourite pastimes. While the bandages may cover up 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 plasters isn’t that helpful because the skin doesn’t breathe as well and it takes longer to heal. “As a mum, you are washing your hands all the time, so it is important to moisturise regularly. Using moisturiser is the best way to heal a scratch.”
