While we’re well aware there are many rules members of the royal family have to follow, did you know there are plenty that apply to royal babies as well?
It turns out being a prince or princess comes with plenty of regulations, and Princess Charlotte has a long list of rules just for her.
Yes, she gets to travel the world with her parents quite often, but according to Harper’s Bazaar Australia, Charlotte isn’t allowed to sit with parents William and Kate at royal dinners.
That is until she’s ‘learnt the art of polite conversation’.
Social media is also a no-go zone for the little royals. Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis won’t be allowed to have any social accounts of their own when they are older.
When it comes to dressing, you’ll never see Charlotte without a bow, the publication reports, and apparently, she isn’t going to be allowed to wear a tiara until she is married.
Etiquette expert Grant Harrold, explained this is because tiaras are “a sign of status and would show you were taken and not looking for a husband.”
Both George and Charlotte – and eventually baby brother Louis as well – are also required to learn multiple languages. The older siblings have reportedly started learning Spanish.
Now we’ve all seen that Princess Charlotte is loving the royal life, having already perfected her royal wave.
But of course, she is only three-years-old so she’d be forgiven for the occasional slip up.
Who could forget her adorable tantrum on the tarmac during the royal family’s trip to Germany mid last year.
Prince George hasn’t escaped his own set of rules either, for example, the future King always wears shorts.
An etiquette expert revealed last year there’s actually a bit of a snobby reason behind Kate’s decision to shun trousers and dress her little boy in shorts.
“Trousers are for older boys and men, whereas shorts on younger boys are one of the silent class markers that we have in England,” William Hanson told the Express.
“Although times are (slowly) changing, a pair of trousers on a young boy is considered quite middle class–quite suburban.
“And no self-respecting aristo or royal would want to be considered suburban. Even the Duchess of Cambridge.”
