Queen Elizabeth: “I told William and Kate to break this rule on their wedding day”.


Queen Elizabeth has made herself a successful leader through her values and hard work. The Queen has followed every royal rule and traditions.

However, you know what they say, rules are meant to be broken. But, can you imagine Her Majesty telling her family members to brake a rule?

Well, its quite hard to imagine. And although the royals usually follow strict protocol, it appears as though Queen Elizabeth is up for breaking an odd rule or two. According to the book: ‘Kate: A Biography’, author Marcia Moody revealed many things related to Her Majesty breaking rule.

Strange, right?

However, author Marcia Moody revealed that the Queen actually encouraged the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate to break one rule when it came to planning their royal wedding. Knowing that it was a special day for the couple, Queen Elizabeth told her grandson, Prince William to basically invite who he wants.

So basically, she asked William to forget the hierarchy and who are expected to be invited. Royal author, Marcia Moody wrote in her book: “William was presented with a list of hundreds of people who he should invite and felt his heart sink”.

“The occasion would 100 percent formal, with no room for their personal guest list or special touches. He spoke to the Queen and she told him to tear up the list, there and then. She asked him to invite his friends and start from there”.

She is not only a Queen, but also a grandmother.

Although, that’s probably not a smart move for the Queen to make in terms of keeping up appearances, it truly is a loving grandmother move. It shows that at the end of the day, her family’s happiness comes above all else.

And this month, Queen Elizabeth’s family is said to grow by one as her other grandson, Prince Harry, is expecting his first child with his wife, Meghan Markle. At present, Meghan is officially on maternity leave and is expected to give birth later this month.
