Kate Middleton grew up in a prosperous, but not aristocratic family, so the girl did not know the manners.
After the engagement with Prince William, she had to go through the "school of princesses" and learn the strict rules that all members of the royal family are required to observe.
Therefore, the duchess had to refuse many common and seemingly innocuous things. Let's find out which ones.
To vote. Like all members of the royal family, the Duchess does not have the right to vote.
To hand out autographs. Kate can only sign his signature on official documents.
This is because the Queen is afraid that the
signature of family members can be forged by someone.
To paint nails with bright varnish. According to the instruction of Elizabeth II, representatives of the royal family can wear only colorless or nude varnishes on their nails.
To go shopping alone. For security reasons, Kate goes
shopping with bodyguards.
To play Monopoly. Elizabeth II forbade all royal persons to play this board game. "We cannot play Monopoly because in the process we become cruel," Prince Andrew once said.
To have an account on social networks. The ban appeared because of the risk of hacking the account.
Therefore, all the
official pages of the duchess are maintained by PR companies, Kate has no
direct relation to them.
To show feelings for the spouse in public. Elizabeth insists that children and grandchildren follow her example and do not show feelings in front of the public.
To eat oysters and mussels. In this seafood can be
poison, if the storage conditions were not properly met. For the sake of safety
and health, the whole family does not eat shellfish.
To work on the usual 8-hour work. Kate is obliged to deal with socially significant matters: visiting hospitals, conducting educational projects, etc.
To finish dinner. After the queen has finished the
meal, none of the family members has the right to eat after her. Kate
Middleton, of course, is one of them.
