No yoga pants, no cleavage – and tiaras cannot be worn before 6pm. Teacup handles must be kept at 3 o’clock and royal women should adopt the ‘Duchess slant’ to prevent embarrassment when sitting. Summers will be spent at Balmoral Castle, winters skiing in the Swiss Alps. Wedding rings will made of Welsh gold and brides should wear their hair up. Honeymoons can be taken on the royal yacht or just as popular, Scotland.
These are just some of the British Royal Family’s many rules and traditions that form the foundations of how to do absolutely everything as a royal.

We explore exactly what these royal customs are, why they exist and which century they might have come from.
