Kate Middleton grossly violated protocol by disrespecting Camilla.

As it became known, Kate Middleton violated protocol and did not comply with traditional etiquette. This happened during a meeting of the British Royal Family with the President of South Korea and his wife on November 21. Thus, the 41-year-old Princess of Wales refused to curtsey to the Queen Consort . What could have been the reason and how royal biographers comment on what happened, you will find out with us in the next couple of minutes.

Kate Middleton broke protocol

K-pop diplomacy. This is exactly how the Western media dubbed the official state visit of South Korean President Yoon Seok-yeol and his wife Kim Keon-hee. At the same time, curiously, the members of the popular music group Blackpink did not escape the attention of King Charles. Thus, the latter were awarded the honorary title of holders of the Order of the British Empire for their support of environmental projects.

However, today we are more interested not in the details of the visit of the President of South Korea, but in the palace intrigues of the royal family. Perhaps it’s worth starting with the fact that Prince William and his wife were entrusted with a responsible mission. So, the couple met guests from the East and kept them company at the Horse Guards Parade in central London.

Here the 75-year-old king and the 76-year-old queen were already waiting for them. It is worth noting that for such an event, the 41-year-old Princess of Wales opted for a bright red dress and cape from Catherine Walker & Co. The look was completed with a Jane Taylor hat and stiletto pumps. But how did Kate Middleton break protocol, you ask?

Another disrespect?

You see, the Duchess followed her husband up the stairs. After William bowed his head in greeting to his father and Camilla , Kate curtsied to the king. But Middleton did not want to show the Queen Consort such respect. And, interestingly, there may be two explanations for this.

Firstly, attentive viewers clearly noticed that Kate was one step away from disaster. The thing is that the princess was close to tripping. And, quite likely, the curtsey was intended for both Charles and Camilla. Secondly, the Duchess could have seen the monarch’s wife earlier in the day. In this case, according to the rules of etiquette, the curtsy may not be repeated.

Nevertheless, one should not discount the princess’s banal disrespect for Camilla. After all, this has already happened during the coronation of Charles. Then, according to royal biographers, everything happened because of Kate’s anger. You see, the monarch’s wife invited 20 people to the special event. At the same time, only four family members were allowed to arrive from the Middleton side. But what happened between them this time, one can only guess.
