Royal fans wrongly accuse Kate Middleton of breaking protocol by kissing the Queen – The Sun

EARLIER this week, Kate Middleton gave The Queen a tour around her Back to Nature exhibit which featured in this year’s Chelsea Flower Show.

But rather than the Duchess of Cambridge’s breathtaking garden display (which featured a waterfall and string swing) being the main point of discussion, fans were quick to focus on the informal way Kate greeted The Queen as she arrived at the show.

As she arrived for the preview, The Queen joked that William and Kate had dressed up”smart” for the occasion.

After The Queen had greeted her grandson, Kate then kissed her on both cheeks before curtsying.

However, royal fans claimed that this “informal” greeting actually “broke royal protocol”.

Taking to Twitter, one wrote: “The thing I noticed was the kiss came BEFORE the bow or curtsy.

“It must be how they normally do it. It’s like the formal part was an afterthought. I think they forgot the cameras were there.”

Similarly, another wrote: “Interesting, kisses before curtsy. I’d figure it’d be more formal first.”

Despite royal watchers’ fears, members of the Royal Family commonly greet each other with kisses on the cheek at more informal gatherings.

Over the years, The Queen has been greeting everyone from Zara Tindall to Prince Andrew with a quick peck on the cheek.
