Cristina and her cousin Juan Gómez-Acebo are both ambidextrous, she plays tennis ans squash with her left hand but eats and writes with the right one.

I'm not so sure about Letizia even if I heard that Felipe is able to use his left hand very well

I heard about George VI being left-handed, but they made him change, causing his stutter. My father was left-handed and forced to change as well, but no stutter. I'm a righty, but my older brother is a lefty.

From what I could see in the documentairy about the Prince of Orange, his eldest daughter, princess Catharina-Amalia seems left-handed too.

Marengo, I think it is still to early to see whether or not Amalia will turn out to be left or right handed. Children of this age often use both hands, it certainly has something to do with the development of the brain. The different areas of the brain and their depending abilities develope at different times. And at that age her fine motorical skills are still not perfected, so she can change from left to right. My daughter does that all the time and since I am ambidextrous I thought she had inherited that trait from me. However our pediatrician convinved us that it was a normal phenomenon and we would have to wait to see which hand she ultimately favors.

I actually doubt, that George's story helped make his great-grandson's lefthandedness easier.
In Williams generation left handedness wasn't considered a problem any longer. But even for Infanta Elena this would have been different.
A lot has changed during the last 30 years.

It's cool that Letizia and Infanta Cristina are ambidextrous. I am too. I write and play tennis with my right hand, and play golf, baseball, and eat (for some weird reason) with my left. But I can write with my left as well, and sometimes do for convenience.

Is Princess Noor Hamzah a leftie? I thought I remember seeing a picture of her signing something with her left, but Ican't find the picture so I'm not sure.

Left Handed Royals!

Who are the left handed royals out there? I always see right handed royals, so having a left handed sister I am curious to know which royals are left handed!

William is left-handed, as is, I believe the Earl of Wessex, although he, like his grandfather, may have learnt to write right-handed. George VI was also left-handed by birth but he was forced to learn to write etc right handed as it was still believed then that there was something wrong with a left handed person.

Interesting thread! The only royal who is left-handed and who comes to mind is William!

Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mum, was left-handed as was her husband, King George VI. Queen Victoria was a southpaw also as well as her daughter, Princess Beatrice of Battenburg, and Beatrice's daughter, the future Queen Victoria Eugenia of Spain. Genetics can predispose a person to be left-handed, but you have more of a chance of being left-handed if your mother is left-handed.

^^^ Thank you! I didn't know that both the queen mum and the king were left-handed! Quite rare and interesting!

I knew genetics had something to do with handedness, but I was not aware that you were more likely to be left handed if your mother is left handed. My father is left handed but neither my brother nor I are left handed. He is ambidextrous as he was born in the era when left handedness was a "sign of weakness".

The Countess of Wessex is left handed but i'm not sure if either of her children are left handed.
