When meeting a member of the royal family, a number of rules must be followed. The set protocols are ever changing as time passes but it remains a must to follow them at all times. You'd be surprised to find that even famous people find it difficult to remember the rules. Here is a list of 10 celebrities that broke royal traditions either unknowingly or from excitement. From Geri Halliwell’s inappropriate pat to Michelle Obama’s endearing hug, the encounters are sure to wow you!
1. Brendan Cole
Brendan Cole is a New Zealand ballroom dancer known for his talented display especially in Latin American dancing. While he was on Strictly Come Dancing, Cole had been one of the best dancers to watch out for. It is no wonder that his getting fired got his fans and the media speculating widely about what the reasons for this may be. One particular rumor that remains outstanding is the talk that they let him go because he invited the Duchess of Cornwall to a waltz!
Okay, so that does sound a bit far-fetched but you should know that Cole breached royal protocols by doing that. Cole obviously didn't mean any ill will when he got the Duchess up and about after all, the event had been held to encourage older people to stay active. Just by looking at this photo, you can tell the Duchess herself found it fun but this doesn't faze critics who think Cole’s act was unruly. Ever since it surfaced on the media, the photo has become widely spread resulting in even more controversy so much so that people say his getting laid off is because of the incident.
