Prince William, Kate Middleton, Princess Anne, Sophie, Countess of Wessex, and the other members of the royal family are expected to adhere to strict rules. But there have been times wherein they bent certain rules for their children.

Last year, Sophie, Countess of Wessex accompanied her teenage daughter, Lady Louise Windsor, to a live episode of “Strictly Come Dancing.” A photo of the mother and daughter duo was published online by Hello! magazine.

In the snap, Sophie and Lady Louise are obviously having a blast. Prince Edward’s eldest daughter was also photographed clapping her hands out of sheer excitement.

Prince William and Middleton accompanied their children to Thomas’s Battersea earlier this month. But two years ago, it was only the Duke of Cambridge who accompanied Prince George to school because his wife was pregnant with Prince Louis.

After they arrived at Thomas’s Battersea, the young royal was greeted by the head of the lower school, Helen Haslam. According to the publication, it is uncommon for school personnel to welcome new students to Thomas’s Battersea individually.

But since Prince William and Prince George are members of the royal family, they seemingly received special treatment from the school. The same thing happened during Princess Charlotte’s first day of school this month.

Months ago, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis visited the beautiful garden that the Duchess of Cambridge helped design. According to the RHS website, children below 5 years old, prams, pushchairs or babes in arms at Chelsea are not allowed.

But even though two of Prince William and Middleton’s children were aged 4 and under, they were still allowed entry to the Chelsea Flower Show. This is because they are royals and the kids of one of the persons who helped design the garden.

Prince William and Middleton also allowed Prince George and Princess Charlotte to be absent from school to attend Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s royal wedding on Oct. 12, 2018. Princess Charlotte served as a bridesmaid, while Prince George was a pageboy at the wedding.

In 1989, Queen Elizabeth gave Zara Tindall her permission to attend the Royal Ascot to accompany Princess Anne. Strict rules suggest that only guests 18 years old and above may attend.
