Prince William and his beautiful wife Kate Middleton visited Scotland during Mental Health Awareness week to attend engagements targeting causes they deemed important, including mental health and homelessness.

On Wednesday, the couple was in Glasgow at the Wheatley Group organization. They witnessed firsthand how the organization is changing the lives of less fortunate people, including those on the verge of becoming homeless.

Homelessness is a widespread problem that William has dedicated a lot of time and resources to solve. They were invited to one of the newly built homes constructed by Wheatley Homes Glasgow. While there, they met the live-in tenant Joanne Wales, a mother to four-year-old Jason, who also happens to be the same age as Prince Louis.

The boy got the honor of showing the visiting royals his Spider-Man and Hulk toys, and Kate commented:

"Louis our little boy loves Spider-Man too."

WHAT ROYAL RULE DID KATE MIDDLETON BREAK DURING HER VISIT TO SCOTLAND?

Royals have a lot of strict rules they have to follow whenever they perform their public duties, some of which include: not getting caught displaying affection, not accepting gifts from fans, and not discussing politics.

On their trip to Glasgow, Prince William and Kate broke one of those rules. It began when they arrived at the Wheatley Group, and the Duke and Duchess decided to stop and pose for a photo with one lucky woman.

The lady was thrilled by the privilege, and she took out her phone to take a selfie with the royals who stood behind her, smiling for the camera.

The Prince even went as far as lightly placing his arm around the lady's shoulder for the shot. Under usual circumstances, the royals would speak to fans before gradually moving down the line while declining pictures.

WHAT OTHER ROYAL RULES HAS KATE BROKEN?

What happened in Glasgow has since made headlines; however, it is not the first time William and his wife have bent the royal rules to satisfy their whim at that moment.

For instance, she once revealed that while homeschooling their kids, they didn't let them know about the Easter holidays and kept the lessons going. Kate has been known to break royal dress codes, including that time she chose to wear colors brighter than the Queen while they attended a barge trip.

There was also the time when Kate wore black, a color usually reserved for mourning by royals.

In fact, she has been known to wear black a couple of times, like the Alexander McQueen gown she wore to The Sun Military Awards back in 2011.

HOW MUCH DO KATE'S OUTFITS COST?

Her wardrobe is mostly full of classic styles, and every now and then, Kate has been known to turn up in very expensive apparel.
