Rules the Royal Family Has to Follow

Scatter Seeds Of Kindness

If you have a friend worth loving
Love him. Yes, and let him know
That you love him, ere life's evening
Tinge his brow with sunset glow
Why should good words ne'er be said
Of a friend till he is dead?

If you hear a song that thrills you
Sung by any child of song
Praise it. Do not let the singer
Wait deserved praises long
Why should one who thrills your heart
Lack the joy you may impart?

If you hear a prayer that moves you
By its humble, pleading tone
Join it. Do not let the seeker
Bow before his God alone
Why should not thy brother share
The strength of ‘two or three' in prayer?

If your work is made more easy
By a friendly, helping hand
Say so. Speak out brave and truly
Ere the darkness veil the land
Should a brother workman dear
Falter for a word of cheer?

Scatter thus your seeds of kindness
All enriching as you go
Leave them. Trust the Harvest-Giver
He will make each seed to grow
So, until the happy end
Your life shall never lack a friend

We are all completely mesmerized by the Royal family, including discovering shocking facts about them. There’s much reason for this, in some cases their rules can be pretty ridiculous. Regardless, this is how the women of the royal family make sure that England’s first ladies are always looking as clean, crisp, and in control. You might be surprised by some of the rather strict rules, however. From very specific diets to even board games that are absolutely forbidden (yes, you read that right), the world’s most-watched family is expected to follow a lot of rules. And we seriously mean a lot.

The rules also apply to those around the royal family. For example, no one can eat after the Queen has finished her meal. Well, no going to the restroom for you! After the Queen has taken her last bite, everyone must stop eating. Okay, weird. What’s also weird? The fact that the royal family looks down upon public displays of affection in even the most PG-rated way. For example, holding hands is a big no-no. And speaking of love, according to the Royal Marriages Act of 1772, royal descendants must seek the monarch’s approval before proposing.

Just because you’re royalty doesn’t mean you get the last say. On one of the most important days of your life, you’d like to be able to get a say in what you wear, right? Wrong! The Queen ultimately decides which tiara the bride will wear from her own personal collection. That’s pretty sweet, though. Another strange wedding tradition? Every royal bride has to carry myrtle in her wedding bouquet. We honestly don’t even know what myrtle is.

Also, every royal wedding party must include a bunch of children. Seems like a very loud, rowdy party. Until 2011, the royal family was not allowed to marry a Roman Catholic! But now the rules loosened up and can marry someone of any faith. Good because that is so outdated. Oh, and if you’re rather passionate about politics then you might want to reconsider your dream of marrying into the royal family. None of them are allowed to vote or speak publicly about politics.
