Every girl dreams of being a princess from the moment she first sees a Disney movie. A fairy-tale castle, a charming prince, and a kingdom as well — what could be better? However, the life of real princesses is not as easy as it may seem. cool stuff, cool stuff, cool stuff
Listabs.com collected a list of things that princesses, unlike ordinary girls, are forbidden to do.
14. Sign autographs
Kate is allowed to be photographed with her fans and shake their hands, but she must not sign autographs. According to royal rules, she can put her signature only on official documents. The reason for this rule is Queen Elizabeth’s fear that someone might forge the signatures and use them against her family. cool stuff, cool stuff, cool stuff
13. Work in an office
Before her marriage, Kate worked for her parents’ business for some time. The firm dealt with delivering goods and organizing events. Now Kate’s work is visiting charity dinners, schools, and hospital openings.
It is believed that the Duchess doesn’t like such events much and tries to avoid them. For this reason, she was, perhaps rather unkindly, given the nickname “Lazy Kate” as some say she is the one who skips such meetings the most among all the royals.
12. Eat mussels or oysters
It’s unknown how upset Kate was when she was asked to refuse oysters. The ban is connected to the fact that oysters can cause allergies and become poisonous when stored incorrectly. Hence, the Duchess and other members of the royal family are forbidden to risk their health.
11. Wear a bright manicure
No rhinestones, chevrons, or broken glass on the nails. According to the dress code, the Duchess of Cambridge can use only nude-colored shades. Kate’s manicure usually consists of 2 shades: a tender pink (#28 Rose Lounge by Bourjois) and a sophisticated nude (#423 Allure by Essie).
Of course, it’s a universal option, but it would be great if a classical French manicure was allowed too. Otherwise, it’s slightly boring.
