Iím a lefty too my parents never pressured me to change but my fist year elementary teacher( married to an orthodox priest) Wanted me to used my right hand because the left was not pious according to her and mom went ballistic on her and told her off (my school was a private catholic one).
I was writing the same way as Charlotte at the same age and a little bit older i was forgetting few letters while writing big words, itís okay it has to do with the left hand covering the words already written and my a lit dyslexia on my part.
Itís true lefties do tent to be more artistic, Iím an architect myself and considering her mother and great grandfather artistic pursuits Lottie has good examples
Ps lilibet is also leftie do I remember right?

Me too!  I remember being encouraged to use my right hand to write and being told my life would be easier if I conformed. So my writing is awful and I try to avoid writing by hand. I also remember being ashamed to ask for the ďspecialĒ scissors in art class. But the nuns did worse to my mother when she was in primary school.   She was the child of Italian immigrants and they named her Silvia. The nuns told them they were wrong and she should be ďSylviaĒ.  So they changed the spelling of her name!  She always hated her name after that.

I donít know about HM, but William definitely is a lefty. I would imagine if Charlotte is left handed they would just go with it and not try to force her to use her right hand.

Hahahahaha the struggle was real you donít know how many times I god burned or cut during cooking or crafting maquette (for university) because most of the tools are made for right handed people, sometimes I feel that I live in a world that trys to kill me
Mine too but I own it  Grin sometimes it  was so bad that if I didnít went to copy my notes straight after class I couldnít read it, itís still is and my boyfriend doesnít even let me do the grocery list.
My mom was always sensible about it because her younger sister was slap by her teachers with a ruler for not writing with the right hand (she end up switching to right handed writing and doing everything else with the left).
Ps the queen is right handed (checked it) but Queen Vic was a lefty!
Ps2 goingís back reading my post make me realize how bad my spelling is I donít know if my dyslexia got worse(is it a thing) but I sorry that you have to endure that

The Queen isn't a lefty but her father was, William is and I think Edward may be as well.

I wonder if Charlotte is a lefty? There is something about her backwards 2's and the t's that would indicate she is either ambidextrous or is a lefty or a lefty forced to be a righty it all indicates spatial dexterity so this is not a criticism just an observation. She may become an artist or work in the design world somehow like a planner or landscape architect even.
Reversals are fairly common at her age/stage of schooling.  Smiley

Yes, I teach third grade and it's still not that out of the ordinary for them to still be mixing up b/d or writing their 2s and 5s backwards. They usually start to self-correct on their own by the time they finish the year.

And dear Charlotte's only 5 so we're several years away from being concerned about her writing regardless of which hand she uses.  Around here kids haven't done much beyond the vary basics by her age...more writing readiness than actual hardcore handwriting lessons.  Real lessons start more in kindergarten and go thru elementary school.  I shudder to think about the handwriting projects from my early elementary years that my mother has saved in my memory box.  Absolute horrors.

There is also the lovely and rather comical habit of mirror writing. Most kids eventually grow out of it, but some retain the ability and make up a perfect little secret hand writing. (aka the Brontee sisters)

 My daughter did this from a very young age..... she would use her left hand and write ďperfectĒ from the left side of the page, then sheíd switch to her right hand and write mirror image from the right hand side! She eventually went with right for writing, but plays sports and stuff left handed.

My husband was a lefty forced to be right at school, and he says now he canít write well with either  Grin this possibly also caused/contributed to his dyslexia. he also plays most sports lefty.

Charlotte is wearing a pair of Penelope Chilvers boots in the Christmas card photo. Like mother like daughter lol.

The boots are only available through pre-order. No doubt they are already quite popular.

Whilst having a weak moment on my lunch break, I came across this Hello! article claiming that Charlotte is the 'double' of Lady Kitty Spencer, showing a photo from the latter's childhood:

https://www.msn.com/en-gb...ar-BB1c5wxt?ocid=msedgntp

I see a resemblance, but I still think Charlotte has inherited the strong Teck genes. I see a lot of William, but also a lot of the Queen, Sarah Chatto, and QEQM to an extent...all with Kate's colouring. I think, given her Teck genes, there is a similarity with Eugenie too, and it will be interesting to see Charlotte as she gets older and how/whether she is similar in looks to Eugenie. Similar with Lady Louise, who I think is very Teck when it comes to her features.

I don't see much resemblance with Lady Kitty aside from the normal pudginess that comes with that age. I always waited for a Diana face to appear with Charlotte since she resembles William but she is less Spencer than she is. I think the Teck genes are there I just looked up a picture of Queen Mary but I see Queen Elizabeth more than anyone else. I don't see the Bowes-Lyon face at all.

I agree with this. When I was writing my post I had another look at the photo of Kitty and thought 'well all kids look like that at that age', but I can see how others may see a strong resemblance (particularly those who want to see the resemblance).
The only time I see Bowes-Lyon passed down is with Eugenie. There's a few photos of QEQM in her youth where the resemblance is strong, and I could envisage Charlotte inheriting some of that too (some of that is me wanting to as QEQM was an incredibly beautiful woman!). I think the Teck and perhaps Philip's side are strongest when it comes to descendants' features.

Some interesting photos of QEQM as a youngster and how Eugenie may resemble her (IMO):

I have fervently hoped that Charlotte would not resemble Diana as the press and some of the public would place enormous pressure on her to be Diana .2. This way she can be her own self.

I agree LL - that would have made her life difficult.

The only people I see with really strong Teck genes are Edward and Louise.  Charles and Harry also have them, but with Phillip mixed in to blunt the edges. Sarah Chatto looks like her father to me, so she isnít in my mix. I see a little of QE in Charlotte but I think she has a face that will change as she gets older. So who knows?

I gotta go with team Teck Wink imo she is Sarah Chatto with Kate coloring.  I adore Sarah, she is a class act.   Some features of the queen and Anne too.

  I think it's clear after she pulled her hand away and strode in like a total princess, she's going to be her own girl and fun to watch....I bet she gives her brother's fits, has her daddy wrapped around her finger and a mom with a job to do

The media is always trying to link Charlotte to Diana with looks but really I just don't see it, and if Kitty didn't dye her hair blonde there wouldn't be a link to Diana either(who died her hair blonde was well). Kitty actually looks like her mother.
