The one rule Wills and Kate break with their kids

Prince William might be in line to be King, but it appears neither he or his wife, Kate Middleton, have any issues breaking royal protocols.

In fact, the couple are said to have ignored a very important royal rule when they visited Germany and Poland last month with their kids, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Despite the royal kids being well travelled, it appears they’re actually breaking a travel code set by the royal family, which states direct heirs to the throne are forbidden from taking the same plane.

This was reportedly set in place to protect the throne in case there was an accident during the flight.

When the much-loved family flew to Australia in 2013, royal fans were wondering if they would take separate planes, so Prince George would be on a different flight to his father, Prince William.

However when they touched down on Aussie soil, Prince William and Prince George stepped off the plane together – clearly not giving the royal rule a second thought.

Since then they’ve made it a point to always travel as a family, with their recent tour of Germany and Poland seeing Kate, Wills and the kids travelling on the same plane together.
