Queen Elizabeth II’s bizarre rule all female royals including Kate and Meghan MUST follow | Royal | News (Reports)


Female Royal Family members, including Kate Middleton and formerly Meghan Markle, have to walk down the stairs in a very specific way due to traditional etiquette. At dinner parties, royals have to enter the room in order of hierarchy.

First is Her Majesty, then her husband Prince Philip followed by their eldest son Prince Charles and wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

Then Prince William comes next as the second in line for the throne and followed by his wife Kate Middleton.

Women in the Royal Family are taught to walk down the stairs in the politest way possible.

Walking down the stairs at formal royal engagements requires mastering a specific technique, according to Reader’s Digest.

The royal women are told to keep their chins parallel to the ground with their hands by their sides.

They are not allowed to look down at the stairs while walking.

If there is a banister, they should rest their hand on it but not grab it, according to Reader’s Digest.

It also states that the royal women should keep their toes pointed toward the railing while they walk and move at a steady pace.

He added: “She does believe in ghosts and has several lucky charms in her handbag.”

Her Majesty overseas all the food at Buckingham Palace by approving the menus.

Darren McGrady, a former royal chef, explained that the Queen is normally presented with suggestions for the following few days.

He told the Daily Mail: “The menu book was sent up to her and she’d put a line through the ones she didn’t want.”

He added: ‘She’d oversee the full menu, choose what she wanted – do we have enough pheasant, grouse, partridge?

“She loved food from the estate and to see her own produce on the menu. She loved the hosting side of the event.

“Garden parties were huge we’d have to do so much food, scones and pastries, ice cream made fresh.”

Mr McGrady also said the Queen does not like eating garlic.

He added: “We could never serve garlic to the Queen but Prince Philip loved it,’ he said. ‘If we were at Balmoral and she was out, we’d slather his steak in garlic.

“But when she was at the table, there was no garlic at all.”
