If you’re anything like me, you’re bag is probably home to your phone, keys, purse, way too many receipts and a couple of old sticks of chewing gum.
But for the likes of royalty Kate Middleton, as you can imagine the contents of her clutch are a lot more useful than some half-eaten minty sweets.
Apparently, The Duchess of Cambridge carries just four things with her at all times, according to Marcia Moody, author of Kate: A Biography, and they’re all extremely practical for a woman with a slightly out of the ordinary day job.
So, what are these elusive items? Well, first Kate likes to pack a compact mirror - y’know just to check she hasn’t got any poppy seeds stuck in her teeth from that sandwich at lunch.
Next up is a handkerchief, which is absolutely essential for those snot-related emergencies when it comes to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and little Prince Louis.
There’s also lip balm on the list because it’s getting seriously cold now and there's truly nothing worse than chapped lips when you’re walking around outside all day.
And the final product in the bag is blotting paper, for those shiny-forehead moments we all suffer from.
There you have it, apparently Kate doesn’t need to carry cash or cards with her, and interestingly a mobile phone doesn’t even make the cut...
I’d like to think that she’s a bit more like the rest of us when she’s off duty - ferrying around everything but the kitchen sink in that bag. I’m imagining a bunch of old pennies, a few cuddly toys for the kids and maybe even a Mars bar?
