Kate and William ‘risk wrath of Princess Anne’ after important ‘protocol breach’

Prince William and Kate Middleton's antics on royal duty last week could have "offended" Princess Anne, a royal expert has said.

Posing for selfies with members of the public as part of a warm and tactile approach during their trip to Scarborough, Yorkshire, seemingly broke royal protocol.

In breaking away from traditional formalities, royal commentator Neil Sean suggested the Prince and Princess of Wales could "risk the wrath of Princess Anne", the Daily Express reported.

More casual and interpersonal greetings with crowds appears to be something William and Kate are keen to introduce to keep up with modern society.

Speaking on his YouTube Channel, Neil Sean's Daily Headline news, he said: "Could the brand new Prince and Princess of Wales have offended the Princess Royal?

"Princess Anne is not too keen on breaking royal protocol. She comes from an era where the protocol was incredibly important.

"While she has had to adapt in the modern age, she told me once that she couldn't understand why people wanted to film events on their phones, rather than being in the moment."

The royal commentator continued: "The Prince and Princess of Wales have taken it a step further by posing for a number of selfies. This is not something the late Queen or the Princess Royal are keen on.

"On a visit to Scarborough, they seemingly broke royal protocol. They agreed to have numerous selfies with people in the crowd.

"One man even put her arm around Catherine. This would not have happened a few years ago.

"Sources in the Palace tell me that this is simply the way that William and Catherine want to run things – that it's about reaching out to the people who have come to see them. According to Anne, she simply just does not get it."

The Daily Star has approached Buckingham Palace for comment.
