Welp, it looks like Prince Charles is the latest royal to break the queen’s “No Selfie” rule on a recent outing. But it seems he just got a pass from the monarch herself.
This week, Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall traveled to Canada to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee. One of the stops on their trip included a visit to Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories. The royal couple met with First Nation leaders and members of the local community.
During the event, two women tried to take a selfie with Charles. It appears the royal was caught off guard but decided to smile for the camera anyway. According to experts, selfies are frowned upon since they’re less personal than a face-to-face interaction and can also be problematic for security reasons. (Think about it: Selfies invite the photo taker to get pretty close.)
