Childhood should be a carefree time where the main focus of a kid’s life is learning and having fun. However, that is not always the case for all kids, and especially when you’re talking about children growing up in the spotlight. The kids that are growing up in royal families not only have to grow up while being watched by the whole world, they are also expected to keep up with many rules that apply to them as royals. What are some of the rules that these children must follow?
Training Begins At Two
Often, etiquette training for royal children starts as early as two years old. This is in order to ensure that they learn how to act properly in public and not have any public faux pas. The training typically involves posture, what is allowed to be talked about in public, what a proper handshake looks like, and much more. However, as kids will still be kids, there are some moments like this one with Prince Louis, that they get away with a bit of cheeky behavior anyways.
Most people don’t think twice when their child receives a gift, but that is not the case with royals. Most royal children are given countless gifts from people they have not met, and they have to gracefully accept them all so as they won’t come across as rude. However, they are only allowed to keep the gift if they’re worth up to $200.
