Prince William bemuses fans as they learn he’s left-handed during signing of proclamation

Prince William signed the oath to uphold the security of the Church in Scotland during the Accession Council on Saturday morning where King Charles III was formally proclaimed monarch, but fans were more interested to see him signing with his left hand.

At the accession at St James's Palace today, the new Prince of Wales, 40, and the new Queen Consort Camilla, 75, confirmed Charles as King in the moving ceremony but fans seemed bemused as William was pictured revealing he is left-handed.

Fans were quick to take to Twitter to comment on it.

One wrote: “I never knew Prince William was left-handed! (as a mother of a left-hander I’ll be sure to let them know).”

While a third penned: “Learning a lot about the Royals watching the Accession Council but the thing I’m most fascinated about is discovering that Prince William is left-handed.”

The important event was the moment when Charles was officially given the position of King even though he stepped into his new role immediately afterthe death of Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday afternoon.

Taking place less than 24 hours afterCharles gave a moving national address, the Privy and Accession Councils saw the new King give a speech and sign a series of oaths and orders, alongside council members including Queen Consort Camilla and the new Prince of Wales, William.

In his speech King Charles said: "My Lords, Ladies, and Gentlemen.

"It is my most sorrowful duty to announce to you the death of my beloved Mother, The Queen.

"I know how deeply you, the entire Nation – and I think I may say the whole world – sympathise with me in the irreparable loss we have all suffered.

"It is the greatest consolation to me to know of the sympathy expressed by so many to my Sister and Brothers and that such overwhelming affection and support should be extended to our whole family in our loss.

"To all of us as a family, as to this kingdom and the wider family of nations of which it is a part, my Mother gave an example of lifelong love and of selfless service.

"My Mother’s reign was unequalled in its duration, its dedication and its devotion. Even as we grieve, we give thanks for this most faithful life.”

He went on to say he was aware of the “duties and heavy responsibilities” he was taking on and would “strive to follow the inspiring example I have been set in upholding constitutional government and to seek the peace, harmony and prosperity of the peoples of these Islands and of the Commonwealth Realms and Territories throughout the world.”
