Queen Elizabeth II’s bizarre rule that all royal women, including Kate and Meghan, MUST follow | Royal | News


Female royals, including Kate Middleton and formerly Meghan Markle, have to come down the stairs in a very specific way due to traditional etiquette. During dinners, members of the royal family must enter the room in hierarchical order.

First there is Her Majesty, then her husband, Prince Philip, followed by their eldest son, Prince Charles, and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. Then Prince William comes next as second in line for the throne and followed by his wife Kate Middleton.

The women of the royal family are taught to descend the stairs in the most polite manner possible.

To descend the stairs during formal royal engagements, one must master a specific technique, according to Reader’s Digest.

Royal women should keep their chin parallel to the ground, with their hands at their sides.

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

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

It also states that royal women are to keep their toes pointed towards the railing as they walk and move at a steady pace.

Darren McGrady, a former royal chef, explained that the Queen normally receives suggestions for the following days.

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

He added, “She would oversee the full menu, choose what she wanted – do we have enough pheasant, grouse, partridge?

“The garden parties were huge we had to make so much food, scones and pastries, ice cream.

Mr McGrady also said the Queen does not like to eat garlic.

He added: “We could never serve the Queen with garlic, but Prince Philip loved it,” he said. “If we were at Balmoral and she was away, we would brush her steak with garlic.

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