The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were said to have broken royal protocol during Easter Sunday.


While some have said that Queen Elizabeth II may have gotten mad at the couple, others claimed that no harm was done since the reason for the pair’s mistake was a traffic jam.

As reported by Hello Magazine, Prince William and Kate Middleton arrived late at the Easter church service at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle on April 1, 2018.

The media outlet explained that the couple had broken royal protocol since they arrived after the Queen.

Emily Nash, the publication’s royal correspondent said that the royal family usually arrives at events in order of their rank, which means that Her Majesty should have been the last person to arrive at the event.


Although, due to the traffic caused by the roadworks on the M4, Middleton and Prince William were the last ones to arrive.

As reported, they spent their Easter weekend at Middleton’s parents’ home in Bucklebury together with their two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Some royal fans on Twitter expressed their annoyance with Middleton and Prince William since they made the Queen wait, but one user defended the couple and blamed the traffic jam for the whole incident.


The pair was supposed to arrive at 10:45 a.m., but they arrived a little while after.

Other members of the British Royal Family were also present, such as Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, Princess Anne and Zara Tindall.

Prince Philip was not present since some reports have claimed that he is struggling with his hip. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were also not around during the service. The Kensington Palace stated that the couple’s weekend plans were “private.”

Despite the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge being late, the Queen looked to be cheerful after the service.
