She must walk two steps behind William
The world has changed, but some traditional standards remain the same in the royal family. There seems to be no adjustments in the rules by the Queen. This rule is as archaic as it is confusing, but Kate doesn’t fight it as she shows respect for the family that made her royalty. No matter what the rule, Kate seems to comply with whatever she is asked to do, and that without a frown on her face. When it comes to this particular rule, it seems as if she is happy to follow it at all times.
To respect her husband’s traditions, Kate must put her pride aside and walk two steps behind William during official public dates. If you thought it was supposed to be so because she is his wife, you are wrong. If it was she who had royal blood, it would have been William to walk two steps behind her. Do you remember that it was already like this with Queen Elizabeth II and King Philip that Philip always had to stay in the Queen’s shadow? What do you think of this rule? Do you think this is something fair? Does it go well with the way the society has evolved over the decades? Either way, they royals seem to be sticking to this rule as well.
