We know that Queen Elizabeth II uses her handbag to send signals to her staff and that Duchess Kate holds her clutch in both hands when she's attempting to avoid an awkward handshake -- and now, the hidden function behind Princess Diana's clutches has been uncovered.

If you look at old photos of the Princess of Wales exiting cars at events, you'll notice that she's almost always carrying a clutch -- and the accessory didn't just exist to hold her belongings.

"We used to laugh when we designed what she called her 'cleavage bags,' little satin clutches which she would cover her cleavage with when she stepped out of cars," the royal's handbag designer Anya Hindmarch told the Telegraph.

Really interesting. I agree that a bag can be a good way to keep your hands occupied when youre nervous/awkward!

Yes, Aoifs, another good reason to carry a clutch besides foiling photographers' attempts to snap embarrassing pics of Diana's cleavage as she bent over to get out of cars.
