The British royal family goes to great lengths to project an image of themselves as a unified force, but there is one aspect of their lives where their differences are impossible to hide – and that is their handwriting. Over the years, several handwriting experts known as graphologists have analysed the penmanship of various members of the house of Windsor. Here is what they have to say about what their scripts tell us about their personalities. The 5 most awkward curtsies to royals – plus one of the cutest Princess Diana The late Princess Diana had incredibly distinctive handwriting that said a lot about the People’s Princess’s personality, analysts agreed. According to SheKnows, Sheila Lowe, a forensic handwriting examiner, says: “The large, round, openness of it reveals a woman who needed love, affection, attention and approval in a very big way,” adding, “The horizontally expanded writing indicates that freedom was a powerful imperative for her.” Prince Harry British media quoted Tracey Trussell, a graphologist, saying that the Duke of Sussex is a “spontaneous idealist” and a “freedom-seeker”. She adds that Harry’s handwriting also reveals that he is a “versatile, fun-loving, diffident and enigmatic” person. Inside Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s ‘Palace of Secrets’, The Carlyle Meghan Markle As with most things related to Meghan Markle , experts’ interpretations of her handwriting were a little more complicated. The Duchess of Sussex is a qualified calligrapher and, as such, her too-practised writing is anything but natural. Trussell says that the beautiful penmanship actually shows that Meghan is possibly ‘intransigent and contrived”, and could be seen as a “social climber”. Ouch. Prince William The eldest son of Prince Charles and Princess Diana is famously left-handed, and his penmanship is stunning, if somewhat less graceful than that of the rest of his family. Nevertheless, his scrawl reveals the Duke of Cambridge to be a “self-reliant and experiential” person, according to Trussell. What are the British royal family’s favourite watches? Kate Middleton The Duchess of Cambridge has handwriting that is not entirely dissimilar from that of her mother-in-law, Diana, in terms of elegance and ease. Trussell says Middleton’s script indicates that she is “virtuous, sensible and reliable, compassionate, enthusiastic, expressive and productive”. Now that really does sound like Middleton in a nutshell. Queen Elizabeth Queen Elizabeth’s signature, according to graphology-world.com, shows the monarch to be a person of “simplicity”. “Although the capitals are large in proportion to the body, it is unpretentious in its clarity,” the site reads. It goes on to say that “the fact that the royal R is no larger than the initial E of Elizabeth [is a] fine demonstration of dignified modesty”. Why Princess Diana’s final resting place got a US$27 million revamp Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall According to handwriting expert Adam Brand, per International Business Times , Camilla Parker Bowles’ handwriting indicates that she is “friendly and sensitive”. “Camilla’s signature has an emotionally responsive right slanting curved ‘C’; the ‘M’ is made up of two open bowls, the middle zone letters vary in height and are relatively small in relation to the absolute size of the signature – all signs of sensitivity and friendliness,” Brand explains. Prince Charles The heir to the British throne’s handwriting, according to Bond, suggests that the Prince of Wales has a “here and now, let’s get on with it” attitude to life. “Although signatures only show the public image rather than the inner personality, Prince Charles’ signature reinforces what we already know about him. The strong middle zone with the slightly left slant shows a driven individual with entrepreneurial qualities,” says Bond. Want more stories like this? Sign up here.
