Are both Prince Guillaume and Prince Felix left-handed?

I saw that they both their watch on the right hand. Or is this a European trend?

I have here a picture which shows quite clearly Guillaume writing with the right hand and answering the phone with the left. That means he's probably right-handed. As you (aivi) have pointed out, the watch is visible on the right hand. I hadn't noticed this before! Perhaps it's a European trend. Not sure about Felix's 'handedness'. Will try to look around.

Well, my father is right-handed but wears his watch on his right hand, too. However, he was originally left-handed, but his teacher thought that it was not a good thing, so switched him. He still plays sports left-handed, though.

My aunt (also a teacher) taught me to write with my right hand and I did for a while too, but I went back writing with my left. Im stubborn. :) Anyway, its hard to write with a wrist watch, especially with those large silver ones, like the one Prince Guillaume was wearing. Its in the pic where he was playing table football.

But maybe its a personal preference too I guess, because that lady behind him is wearing her watch on her left hand, and it looks like shes writing with her right? boy its confusing. I just find it hard to write with a chain-like thing on my wrist.

I wear it on my wrist and I'm right handed. I'm still in high school, so I definitely write a lot, and it doesn't bother me. I read something similar about Charlotte Casiraghi wearing her watch on her right hand too.

And here I thought it was the standard thing to wear the watch on the left hand. Well, you learn something new every day. Like aivi, I find it cumbersome to have something dangling on the right hand (I'm right handed). So I wonder why our right handed princes wear their watches on the right hand. What about Louis, Sebastien and Alex?

Im am right handed and wear my watch on my right hand and also on occasions on my left hand, it may be a european thing as I'm NZ European but as far as I know its just what people are comfortable with is they way they will wear there watch. I saw a photo of Guilluame with a pen in his right hand.

I'm right handed and I wear my watch on the left wrist...my sister though is also right handed and wears hers on the right wrist. My grandfather was left handed and wore his on his LEFT wrist while my uncle (also left handed) wears his watch on his right wrist. It's just a matter of comfort I would think.

On a funny side note- we also had to figure out whether my dogs were 'righty' or 'lefty' for sheep herding and agility training....apparently we have two left handed (pawed?) Shetland Sheepdogs and a right-handed Shetland Sheepdog. Who knew?

Then its probably a European thing. I think a teacher told me that you could tell if a person was left-handed or right by looking to see which wrist his watch was on. Supposedly, watches are worn on the non-dominant hand, so it wouldnt interfere with the flow of writing.

It doesn't make them left handed if they wear their watches on their left hand, i saw people wearing their watches on their left hands, I write by my right hand and i wear a watch on my left hand and i wear a bracelet on my right hand.

On pictures taken on 29th May (canť find it now, it was some memorial or something) there was Guillaume handing a pen in his right hand (the same hand on which he wear a watch). So I guess he is right-handed in spite of wearing watch on his right hand.

I am ambidextrous and it poses no problems for me when I write with either hand in regards to my watch. However my preferred side to wear it, the watch, is my left, an old habit of many years standing.

They are both right-handed.

There is video of them signing the book on the day of Henri's ascension. They both wrote with their right hands.

it's practical, LOL, you can write with your right-hand and at the same time see the exact time :)
