The princess dream has always been a phase that every little girl goes through in their early childhood days, regardless to say the princesses that Disney created. It’s become like a rave of pop culture that includes all kinds of beauty, elegance and royalty but, in reality, it is so much more than that, being the beauty with brains, royals have many responsibilities and rules that they have to follow no matter what.
The favourite of all, The Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine Elizabeth Middleton became a royal overnight when she lawfully married Prince William, Duke of Cambridge on 29 April 2011 at Westminster Abbey in London, United Kingdom.
As many of us lived our childhood dream when Kate as a commoner became a royal princess, all we see is the glamour and luxurious lifestyle of the duchess, but none sees the rules and regulations that forbid the lady from doing certain things. Some are kinda weird and some are pretty reasonable. Let’s get done with them together, shall we?
1. No bright Nailpaints.
It’s true, the Duchess is not to apply any red or dark nail polishes, at the moment she is confined to wearing these two shades, #28 Rose Lounge by Bourjois and #423 Allure by Essie.
2. Not to consume oysters or mussels.
The royal family is not allowed to eat mussels and oysters as it can be poisonous to their health because such seafood is common to cause numerous allergies.
3. Official Duties of the Duchess.
After being the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate has been bestowed with a numerous number of social charities that is not an easy job at all.
4. Not to sign any autographs.
No one in the royal family is allowed to sign their signatures except for official documents since they are scared of getting their signatures forged.
5. Fashion with Fur.
Kate is only allowed to wear fur occasionally that too only if the animal died a natural death.
Of course with the high security of the royal family, the Duchess cannot shop freely anymore, she is always with her guards.
7. Behaving poise with Prince William.
The Royal couple is strictly concerned with PDA, as they are public figures and they have to be very graceful and respectful on how they behave with each other in public.
8. Social media accounts.
It is pretty reasonable that the royal family aren’t allowed to have any social media accounts as they cannot stage their private lives out in the open.
9. Royal seating arrangements.
The Royal family is assigned to their own seats in public which is the only place they have to occupy in any gatherings.
It is said that the royal family is meant to travel together for the safety measure of the family but that rule has slowly started to fade with time.
11. Gone with the fashion freedom.
Whatever the Duchess wear is styled and chosen by the Royal Stylist, so obviously it the freedom of wearing whatever she wants is long gone.
12. No toe-dipping in politics.
None of the royal family members is allowed to vote or campaign for the parliament as to not get in the ugly webs of politics. They are to be remained neutral and pure.
