Did Prince William and Kate Middleton break a royal tradition?


Prince William and Kate Middleton broke a strict royal tradition with a small public display of affection. This move is, said to be, inspired by Meghan Markle.

William and Kate are in line to become the King and Queen Consort. They have some serious tradition(s), which are to be followed.

While being awarded the ‘gold Blue Peter badges’ for campaigning on children’s mental health issues, the Duchess of Cambridge put on ‘rare tactile display’. Though it was just a simple knee touch, however, it was enough to be surprised for their fans.

There were reports, in the year 2016 that the royal couple “often keeps a stoic, very British decorum”.

Half of this is due to the fact that mostly when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate are being clicked, they’re at public events or representing the British Monarchy in an official event. Actually, their semi-standoffish behaviour extends to the interviews.

Fans of the royals from all over the world embraced Harry and Meghan’s informal attitude and celebrated the goofy romance.

But, this could change soon. There have been lots of most talked-about or hushed about moments from the Royal announcement of their engagement.

One of the best was when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was shown cuddling with intertwined hands. They were even joking around before their microphones were turned on.

For the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate, she has always been extremely polished in her fashion and public presentation. Meghan Markle’s more laid-back and easy-going approach towards things could allow for a change this time.
