'A senstive loner': King Charles’ 'spidery' handwriting reveals his need for routine and order, says expert
LONDON, UK: As the United Kingdom mourns the death of beloved Queen Elizabeth II, the nation is already thinking about how King Charles III will reign and whether his monarchy will be any different from the traditions of his mother. An expert has now come forward with her views on the new King's reign judging him solely based on his handwriting.
Emma Bache, an award-winning author, says the King has 'spidery' handwriting. Bache, who has been studying the graphology of letters for over 30 years, claims the new King's widely spaced words could show him as being a ‘sensitive loner’.
Bache believes that an individual's character can be determined by his brushstrokes and it shows his personality traits. The graphologist further said that "leftward leaning letters" of the King shows he requires "routine and order".
Her perception came after the King was caught on camera in Northern Ireland getting angry with a pen as he tried to sign the guest book at Hillsborough Castle. The King picked up the pen saying, "Oh God I hate this, I can't bear this bloody thing! what they do every stinking time."

Bache believes that the way someone moves a pen on a piece of paper can say a lot about them as an individual.
According to the Metro, Bache said, “King Charles can often feel as though the world is against him and the somewhat rigid baseline of the handwriting suggest a man that enjoys and needs security in the form of routine and order. The joined-up letters indicate a logic but this can be at odds with his more visionary idealism and intellect, shown in the loops of the taller letters."
"He can feel tormented and is likely to feel this trait strongly juggling his strong sense of duty and tradition with his more progressive ideas for the future. The leftward-leaning letters suggest that he can get bored easily and requires constant intellectual stimulation. There is also a strong stubborn streak and a tendency to become self-defensive if criticized.”
In recent times, the King had stepped up and was taking on more royal responsibilities after the late Queen drastically reduced several public engagements due to health and mobility issues. Charles III, after being the longest-serving Prince of Wales, officially became the new King of England on Friday, September 9, a day after the Queen's death.
Meanwhile, Her Majesty's funeral will be held on Monday, September 19. The casket will be transported from the Palace of Westminster to Westminster Abbey for the state funeral, which is expected to be attended by several world leaders.
