The very relatable reason Meghan Markle always has her hands in her pockets.

We have made a groundbreaking observation about the Duchess of Sussex.

And we will never look at her the same way again.

Are you ready?


ALWAYS. (Sometimes).

…Has her hands in her pockets.

In fact, just yesterday in New Zealand during her and Prince Harry’s royal tour, Meghan donned a white tuxedo dress with pockets, which she comfortably slid her hands into throughout the event. She was slammed by an etiquette expert for appearing “too casual”, calling the move a “step too far”.

Because how dare she hide her hands from the prying eyes of the public.

The only reason we wanted her to come to our side of the world was so we could see her royal hands in the flesh.

We feel cheated.

But it's certainly not the first time Meghan has deprived us of her hands...

Of course, as we must do with every tiny thing the royals do, people are speculating as to why Meghan's hands are so camera shy.

Maybe she doesn't like the way her hands look ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

Maybe it's to stop herself from fidgeting.

Or MAYBE she just loves pockets because they are one of the greatest inventions in the history of fashion, and finding a pretty dress with pockets is like finding a $20 note in an old clutch.

The best thing ever.

Well, according to a royal hand expert who spoke to Ok!, the answer is much deeper.

Because of course it is.

“The classic reason for this very common gesture is that it signals a subliminal desire to hide, especially when the hands are shoved deep into the pockets," body language expert Judi James said.

“It also helps get over the common problem most of us suffer from, which is not really knowing what to do with our hands when we know people are looking at us."

She added that Prince Charles, Prince Harry, and even Prince George are also fans of putting their hands in their pockets, but Meghan is the only royal woman to do it too.

Well, we are glad we've cracked that one.

Now we can rest easy.
