Kate Middleton is married to Prince William, with whom she has three children.
The royal couple has two boys and one girl: Prince George 5, Princess Charlotte 3 and Prince Louis 6 months.
Kate is known for her wonderful style and her infallible elegance while performing public duties.
But sometimes it is discovered with a less glamorous accessory – but why?
The Duchess of Cambridge is often spotted with a patch on the hand to cover minor injuries.
She was last seen athletic when she accompanied her husband to the Tusk Conservation Awards in London this month.
It was on the middle finger of her right hand, and though she tried to hide it, it was clearly visible.
It is far from the first time that the Duchess has been seen wearing the protective cover.
In December 2016, she wore a plaster on her left thumb as she attended the Christmas service at St. Mark's Church in Berkshire.
In November of that year, she had a large cast on her left hand when she visited the Nelson Trust Women's Center.
In August 2016 she had a plaster on the thumb of her right hand – visible as she waved to admirers.
Kate has been plastering in public since 2008, three years before she married Prince William, according to The Daily Mail.
Asked about the presence of a plaster in 2016, Buckingham Palace said, "We have no comment on the plaster," The Mirror said.
Most likely, however, Kate gets as many cuts and scratches as the average mother of three children.
Unlike most British mothers, however, Kate employs a nanny to take care of her children.
The little princes and the princess are looked after by Maria Borrallo from the northern Spanish town of Palencia, who was educated at the prestigious Norland College.
Writer Louise Heren, who wrote a book about Norland's nanny and worked for a year at the college to film a documentary on television, said Maria would raise about £ 38,000 a year as a live-in help for Kate and Williams earning is trained not to set strict rules.
It is expected that she would have arranged regular bathing and sleeping times for the children with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
William and Kate took over Maria in 2014 to replace Jessie Webb, William's former nanny, who retired after the birth of George to help the couple.
The Maria is located in a private area of Kensington Palace, including a bedroom, a living room, a kitchenette and a bathroom.
