Prince Harry Doesn't Care About Royal Protocol And People Love Him For It
We're drawn to the people that push the boundaries - they're usually a lot more fun, let's face it, and Prince Harry is no exception to that rule. In fact, it's pretty much the exact reason why he's the favourite member of the royal family. Sorry Wills.
There's a hell of a lot to remember for them, it must be difficult to keep up with everything.
Sit like a royal (eh?), don't play Monopoly (WTF?), enter the room in order (of importance? height? baldness?), don't let a 'commoner' touch you (urgh), when The Queen finishes dinner - you finish dinner (ABSOLUTELY NO). So many rules, even more questions.
But Prince Harry has a tendency to break the royal protocol. And we love it.
We kind of guessed the red-haired royal wasn't going to be one to follow the strict rules way back when he was spotted playing billiards in his birthday suit.
OK, we've got that out of the way. Let's continue.
These days Harry seems to have become accustomed to breaking the protocols in a much more subtle way, thankfully, for him. But his rebellious ways have changed how many of us think about the royal family in general.
Long gone are the days where the royals don't take pictures with fans or hug the 'commoners' that have travelled miles to see them. In return we have Prince Hazza's wife, Meghan Markle, closing her own car door (how dare she!?) and the pair even hold hands following marriage, dun dun dunnn...
So it would seem Harry has found an extremely Suits-able partner in crime because the Duchess of Sussex likes to break the protocols with him. Alright, maybe doesn't 'like' it - just sees absolutely nothing wrong with the simple things in life like ditching the sleeves when the time feels right or skipping the morning shave (that one's targeted at Harry).
In fact the pair break the rules on the regs. Their Australian tour began earlier this week, with it came the announcement that a royal baby is on the way (congrats, btw, guys).
And already they've made headlines for breaking codes of conduct. What for you ask? Leaning over the barrier and hugging a teenager - what a devil, eh?
On another day Down Under, he stopped a young fan, told her she looked like Meghan and then went on to take a picture of his wife with the youngster. Yep, he's not allowed to take photographs himself.
Let's not forget the one that tugged on everyone's heartstrings - the day that Harry allowed a five-year-old boy to rub his beard before diving straight in for a cuddle.
We wonder what her Maj is thinking, sat at home watching all of this unfold.
Then there's the one nobody can quite get over - the fact that Prince Harry has opted to wear his wedding band. This is a tradition that his grandfather, father and brother have all opted to follow but no, not Harry. Because if anyone wasn't going to abide it had to be him.
Well, we reckon you should keep re-writing that rule book, Harry, you good old royal renegade, you. Sneak as many samosas as you want as well. LAD.
