Kate Middleton Broke the #1 Kitchen Rule in This Photo

From the duchess slant to pantyhose, the royals are etiquette *queens.*

But in a new photo of Kate Middleton at today’s charity luncheon in South Yorkshire, the Duchess of Cambridge broke the ultimate rule of food prep when she wore her hair down while cutting up a baguette for the meal. While Middleton is wearing appropriate cooking attire in the form of a yellow apron, and her signature blowout looks flawless (always does), we’re slightly concerned why no one told the duchess she needed to put her hair in a ponytail for the cooking portion of the day.

Perhaps because she was having an amazing hair day? In which case, been there, done that. Whatever the reason, we’ll let this one slide. (She is cooking food for the homeless and underprivileged, after all.)

But, next time, Kate: It’s hair up when the cuttings boards go down.
