It seems that whenever Diana exited a car, she placed her clutch over her chest, so it hid her cleavage from prying paparazzi.

Another TikTok account, named ‘Katarina – Etiquette & Elegance’, was clearly inspired and posted a video of herself employing Diana’s rule. She captioned the post with:

“Did you know Princess Diana had multiple tricks [on] how to avoid the unwanted paparazzi attention? 📸 One of them was to always cover her cleavage with her clutch when exiting a car. This way she didn’t give the paparazzi anything to ‘spy on’ while maintaining an elegant posture ✨ We can take inspiration from this iconic woman in many ways ❤️.”
