10 Ways William and Kate Have Broken Royal Protocol
All the Ways William and Kate Have Broken Royal Protocol
Speaking of schooling, when/if Kate is coronated one day, she'll be the first queen of England with a college degree! Of course, they met in college, which allowed them to have a very un-royal courtship. "They were friends first, and able to live in this bubble shielded from the press," Andersen says. "They were ordering Chinese food and taking bike rides, and going to the pub like anyone else."
A key part of this particular royal romance is that Kate wasn't chosen for her noble upbringing or lineage. "Camilla didn't approve of Kate, and thinks of her as a coal-miner," Andersen says. In addition to having an education, "Kate will be the first working-class queen."
Occasionally, William and Kate will wrap their arms around each other, or lean in, or jubilantly celebrate a sports victory with a hug. Most recently, they even engaged in a little PDA during an awards ceremony. "You never see Prince Phillip and Queen Elizabeth hug or touch each other in public," Andersen says. "I will say that William and Kate aren't crass about it. They still maintain a level of dignity." But of course!
They are snuggly in public because they truly have feelings for each other. It's rarer than you might think. "Infidelity has been the hallmark of the royal family for centuries," Andersen says. And as depressing as that fact is, William and Kate represent a turning of the tide: a union of romantic love, as opposed to a marriage of political strategy.
