The Brits sure love their royals and write more stories about them than Americans do about the Kardashians, but one story in particular is confusing all of the United Kingdom and it's about Kate Middleton's fingers.
A photo of the Duchess of Cambridge when she visited a school sparked the issue.

In the pic, Kate is holding her clutch and the press noticed something shocking about her fingers:
Photo of Kate on her visit to Oxford primary school suggests her fingers are almost exactly the SAME length https://t.co/S7zkXI1Wx1— Daily Mail U.K. (@DailyMailUK) March 6, 2018
The public wasn't buying it:
“I’ve got an idea: we could do a thing about the size of Kate’s fingers being all the same size”.— Stig Abell (@StigAbell) March 12, 2018
“They aren’t, though”.
“I’ve done a box round them and they don’t touch the same line”.
“We shall publish anyway”. pic.twitter.com/cMMDfUs51V
Or, more accurately: WHY ARE 75% OF KATE’S FINGERS A ROUGHLY SIMILAR LENGTH?— Karl Brophy (@KarlBrophy) March 11, 2018

They have LITERALLY put a box around Kate’s fingers highlighting that they are not the same length https://t.co/6l158nqIKG— Ryan Love (@RyanJL) March 11, 2018

It doesn't take an investigative journalist to see how a hand looks when holding a purse the way Kate was holding hers. Nor is it that hard to find another photo of her perfectly normal hands.
It must've been a slow news day.
