Kate Middleton, known for her incredible fashion taste, is often seen sporting one unsuspecting accessory at royal engagements – plasters.
And one expert has shed light on what it could mean.
Most recently, Kate was seen wearing flesh-coloured plasters while in Cardiff as part of Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

One was spotted on her thumb as she greeted adoring crowds, leading some royal fans to speculate why it was there.
But it wasn't the first time that Kate’s plaster-wearing has been the source of speculation.
In fact, back in 2016 she was seen wearing a plaster while at Sandringham on Christmas Day. Then, in November 2018, she was seen with a circular patch on her finger.
Elsewhere, the royal also had a plaster on her thumb during the Chelsea Flower Show in 2019.
In the past, when asked about the issue, Buckingham Palace said: “We have no comment on the plaster.”
Given the Princess of Wales’ well-documented love for the great outdoors, some royal fans have questioned whether her plaster-wearing could be because of her gardening hobby.
Meanwhile, others have speculated that the minor injuries could be a result of her being a hands-on mum to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
But speaking to Daily Express about the matter, Dr Anton Alexandroff, a spokesman for the Consultant Dermatologist & British Skin Foundation, argued that using plasters to heal cuts isn’t necessarily the best thing to do.
“Wearing plasters isn’t that helpful because the skin doesn’t breathe as well and it takes longer to heal,” he said.
“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.”
Luckily, Kate’s cuts seemed to clear up for her joint engagement with Prince William in Yorkshire earlier this week, as the pair headed to Scarborough to launch a new fund aimed at supporting young people’s mental health.
