Prince George (left) and Prince William (right) are left-handed.

According to CBBC, 10 to 12 percent of the world's population is left-handed. That's about one in seven people. This feature is inherited from a relative, can develop in the womb, or can be the result of an injury to the right hand. Scientists often argue that left-handed people are more likely to be creative and skilled in art or music. However, there is still not enough scientific evidence to support this.

The list of world-famous left-handed people includes former US presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, singer Lady Gaga, actress Angelina Jolie... What about the monarchy? Which of them is left-handed? Read in the article of OBOZ.UA.

1. Prince William

The future king of Great Britain, Prince William, is left-handed. The media have repeatedly emphasized that he constantly signs books with his left hand. Earlier, a member of the Windsor family even joked about it, saying that left-handed people have better brains than right-handed people.

2. Prince George

Prince William's son, Prince George, is also left-handed. He often holds a pen in his left hand when he needs to write something down. Although there is also evidence that he is ambidextrous (equally good with both hands). For example, in 2019, the guy held a hammer in his right hand and later used it to make Christmas pudding.

4. King George VI

It is highly likely that Prince William inherited the gene for left-handedness from his great-grandfather, King George VI. Queen Elizabeth II's father was naturally left-handed. However, there is a nuance: he played tennis with both his left and right hands.

By the way, Queen Victoria, George's great-grandmother, wrote with her right hand but drew exclusively with her left. What is the reason for this? In her early childhood, she was taught to hold the pen in her right hand (which was a common practice at the time).

5. Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon

Queen Consort of the United Kingdom from 1936 to 1952, Elizabeth was left-handed. However, neither she nor her husband King George VI passed their left-handedness on to their daughters, Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Margaret.
