Kate Middleton always spotted with this unusual item when travelling

Kate Middleton, 36, is currently on maternity leave following the birth of her third child, Prince Louis who is currently three months old.

The Duchess of Cambridge travels frequently with Prince William, 36, to promote good relationships between countries on behalf of Queen Elizabeth. Kate has been spotted with a number of Globetrotter suitcases and bags that are also used by other Royal Family members. She also appears to travel with a particular medical item on her person. The Duchess of Cambridge is often caught wearing plasters on her hands when in public. What has caused the injuries remains unknown with some of the plasters spotted on the back of her hand and around her fingers. One of the cuts was presumed to be after meeting a cat that starred in A Street Cat Named Bob, which could have been caused by a scratch.

Buckingham Palace has never confirmed why her fingers are seen with plasters on them. It goes as far back as 2009 when Kate was spotted in a taxi with one around her finger. As a mother of three, she most likely carries many items such as plasters when looking after her children. Prince George, 5, and Princess Charlotte, 3, have both been spotted falling over before so would most likely need some help from their mother. The newest royal family member Meghan Markle will have to learn to call them plasters, not the American version of band-aids. While at an event in London with Prince Harry, he was heard joking to her that she would have to call them plasters in the UK. Meghan has a number of items she also travels with according to her ex-lifestyle blog The Tig. She carried hand sanitiser with her when travelling commercially to wipe the plane seats down, despite admitting to getting odd looks from her fellow passengers.

Meghan also admitted to taking the rather unusual time of dryer sheets with her. She explained that they help keep clothes smelling fresh when travelling long haul. Other items included tea tree oil and a scarf to stave off the cold on long-haul flights. She shut down her blog shortly before it was confirmed she was dating Prince Harry.
