Duchess Kate told to curtsey to 'blood princesses' Beatrice and Eugenie
London, June 25 (ANI): According to the newly updated 'protocols' approved by the Queen, Duchess of Cambridge has been placed firmly down the royal pecking order.
A document has apparently been circulated privately in the royal household, clarifying Kate's status.
Although she is the future Queen, as a former commoner Kate must show reverence to the 'blood princesses'. This implies that she is expected to curtsey to those born royal, such as Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie - both in public and in private, the Daily Mail reported.
The rule only applies when her husband, Prince William, is not present.
In his absence, the 30-year-old must also curtsey to other blue-blooded women in the royal household, including Princess Anne and Princess Alexandra, the Queen's cousin.
However, in the case of the Countess of Wessex, it is she who has to curtsey to Kate.
Royal observers suspect Kate will not mind the new rules as she is keen to please everybody, but William may be less happy.
However, it seems getting to grips with life in the royal household does have its benefits.
The increasingly glamorous Duchess is thought to have spent more than 35,000 pounds on couture and high-end outfits since the start of the year - and her father-in-law is footing the bill.
Prince Charles has agreed to pay for any dresses the Duchess wears for 'work-related' functions and engagements through his official household budget.
He will open up his accounts to the public this week for the first time since Kate joined the family. (ANI)
