Eagle-eyed royal fans spot curious detail about William’s hands in DIY photos

Eagle-eyed royal fans are wondering if Prince William is ambidextrous.

The Duke of Cambridge was pictured using a saw with his right hand during a trip to Scotland, despite him writing with his left.

He shared his left-handedness with other royals including both the Queen's parents and his aunt-in-law Sophie, Countess of Wessex.

Queen Victoria and his son Prince George are also thought to be left-handed.

William was pictured sawing wood with the founder of the Grassmere Community Project, Greyfriars Kirk, over the weekend.

His visit was part of a Royal Tour of Scotland and photos of him doing DIY were posted on The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's Twitter account.

On Sunday, it said: "In his role as Lord High Commissioner to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, Prince William is today hearing how communities and organisations associated with @ChurchScotland have continued to support one another during the pandemic."

Royal followers were quick to spot him using his weaker hand in the picture.

One wrote: "Just noticed William is ambidextrous.

"He writes with his left hand, but here he's using a saw with his right. Good for him."

George Grant added: "Absolutely love this. Being left-handed, it must have been hard for Prince William to use his right hand."

It isn't the first-time his fans have pondered if he can use both right and left hands, and Prince William has previously joked, “left-handers have better brains".

A video of him and his wife Kate Middleton playing table tennis during a royal engagement at Savannah House in Ireland also set tongues wagging last March.

    "Is Prince William ambidextrous?" asked one Twitter user.

    Another wrote: "Prince William is very ambidextrous, he chops wood and tosses pancakes with his right hand and does everything else with his left. How cool."

    Research suggests that all left-handed people have a certain degree of ambidexterity, but only 1 percent of the population are truly ambidextrous, reports Woman & Home.

    William and wife Kate Middleton are halfway through their week-long tour of Scotland, a place with which the Duke has some very emotional ties.

    On Saturday he revealed he was in Edinburgh's Balmoral Castle when he found out his mother Princess Diana had died in a car accident in 1997.

    "Scotland is a source of some of my happiest memories but also my saddest," he told Edinburgh's Assembly Hall.

    "I was in Balmoral when I was told that my mother had died. Still in shock, I found sanctuary in the service at Crathie Kirk that very morning and in the dark days of grief that followed, I found comfort and solace in the Scottish outdoors.

    "As a result, the connection I feel to Scotland will forever run deep.

    "Alongside this painful memory is one of great joy because it was here in Scotland 20 years ago this year that I first met Catherine.

    "Needless to say, the town where you meet your future wife holds a very special place in your heart."
