As a royally-obsessed fan, you’ve probably heard the term “royal protocol” used a lot when a member of the British royal family attends an engagement or goes on an outing. But, what does it really mean? Whenever the royals are out and about, there is a set of rules in place that they (and the people they come in contact with) must follow.
Kate Middleton, 41, has broken royal protocol many times, whether that be taking a selfie with a fan or wearing a certain shade of nail polish. However, there was one strict rule the Princess of Wales couldn’t break during a recent outing.
Yesterday morning, Princess Catherine surprised a group of school students at the Chelsea Flower Show in London.
