It’s getting harder and harder to remember the days when Kate Middleton was called “lazy Katie” because she made every possible effort to attend official events as little as possible.
It was even rumored that she gave birth to children in order to avoid work. However, after Meghan Markle appeared in the royal family, everything changed.
The future Princess of Wales took her under her wing and demonstrated to her how the royal family’s senior members must behave.
As a result, in recent years, Catherine has become much more industrious. Now there are a lot of organizations under her patronage.
In one week, the Princess of Wales has to attend several events at once. And at the same time, “clever Kate” has always been famous for her adherence to royal protocol. She rarely broke the rules that Elizabeth II instilled in her.
But the other day, Middleton was at the center of a scandal.
March 13 is Commonwealth Day in the UK. This holiday was especially important for the late queen. So all the members of her family gathered on it.
Kate Middleton and Prince William could not miss such a significant event. She was noticed when she communicated with Camilla Parker-Bowles and King Charles III.
However, the witnesses were puzzled by the fact that the Princess of Wales did not curtsy to her father-in-law.
According to the royal protocol, Kate, along with other women – Sophie, Megan, Beatrice, Eugenia, and others – are required to curtsy to the king and queen, since they are the most senior members of the royal family.
However, during the Commonwealth Day, Catherine did not do this, which greatly surprised Internet users, because she had never allowed herself to do this before.
