What little girl didn’t grow up on fairy tales where the princess marries a handsome prince and lives happily ever after? The idea of becoming a royal is definitely enchanting to most. However, being a princess and married to the next king is a taxing job! A princess is a symbol, that’s the job description and it’s a lofty one.
Being royal is all about upholding tradition, and projecting a positive, squeaky-clean image of near perfection. It takes a lot of work, and there are a lot, and we do mean a lot, of rules. Read on to find out all the rules that Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle must follow now that they are part of the royal family.
1. No PDA
That’s right – no public displays of affection for the Princess. While Prince William and Kate Middleton are one of the most photographed couples in the world, you can barely find any pictures of them kissing or even hugging. They have to settle for holding hands, and rare kisses on the cheek, when out in public.
The only exception is the couple’s first public kiss as a married couple, on the palace balcony. This new tradition was born on the day of William’s parents’ wedding when Prince Charles broke the code and kissed his wife, Princess Diana. The same goes for Harry and Meghan Markle!
