'Punctual, open, good at explaining things clearly': A handwriting expert claims the right-slanting cursive of the then Catherine Middleton, now the Duchess of Cambridge, means she would make an excellent teacher
The Duchess of Cambridge certainly earned top marks on her recent royal tour, but according to one character analysis expert, Miss Middleton may have missed her vocation.
A leading graphologist's study of the Duchess' handwriting has shown that her pedantry for time keeping, intelligence and efficiency would make her the perfect school teacher.
Upfront: Catherine's signature is readable and flowing, which denotes the fact that she is a natural in her way of dealing with people, says the expert
Former chairman of the British Institute for Graphologist, Elaine Quigley, studied a letter penned by Kate over a year before she became a member of the Royal Family in April.
She said the characteristics of Kate's cursive script is helpful in shedding light on her private persona and, in particular, her natural aptitude for academia.
Quigley said: 'The flow of Kate's script with rightward slant and joined letters, shows a writer who reaches out towards others.
'Looking at the letter, the endings of words are rather short, it shows her use of time is efficient. She doesn't prolong something that can be dealt with promptly.
'It is clear that she likes to move to the next thing without a lot of fuss or extended leave taking.
Compassionate: Graphologist Elaine Quigley, one of the leading handwriting analysts in the country, says Catherine is an honest, strong person with a talent for 'reaching out' to others
'She clearly believes time-keeping should be taken seriously and, as a bit of a perfectionist, she will prefer to be ready early rather than rushing at the last minute.
'Judging by the characteristics of her writing, Kate would make a great teacher, she has the ability to explain things clearly and sensibly.'
The Duchess lived up to her billing as the new people's princess on the tour of Canada with Prince William, where she effortlessly interacted with the public.
In the most touching picture moment of the tour Kate embraced a young cancer-sufferer - a show of Diana-like humility.
