Is Prince William the new rebel of the family? Well mostly likely no he isn’t he new rebel. However, that doesn’t mean he can’t bend the rules every now and then. He is more than willing too it seems. Though, it seems he is doing some little rule-bending here and there. Which is something we are loving honestly. We are really happy for the little things he has done.
Prince William is a new rulebreaker and honestly, it is really adorable on how it happened.
It was the start of March when Prince William and Kate set off to Ireland. This was before the coronavirus, which is nice. No member of the royal family has gone to Irland since Queen Elizabeth did in 2011. And before she did it was 100 years since then.
The tour was supposed to strengthen the bonds between Ireland and the United Kingdom. Which is exactly what happened thankfully. The couple followed Queen Elizabeth’s footsteps in visiting many of the same places she did.
Prince William spoke about the many wrongs that were done while he was in Dublin, Ireland. He spoke about wanting a healthy relationship with the countries. With everything going on in life he thinks it is the best.
“When Queen Elizabeth came to Ireland nine years ago, her visit was characterized by a warmth of spirit; values of friendship and mutual respect; and a desire for understanding and reconciliation,” Prince William spoke. “She spoke then of the need to be able ‘to bow to the past, and not be bound by it.’”
This is where Prince William broke the royal protocol. The couple mingled with royal watchers in County Kildare. That is about an hour outside of Dublin.
This is where Prince William broke the royal protocol of not having selfies. It would seem that he just couldn’t help it this time though. Jennifer Malone is the lucky fan that got to take a selfie with the prince. He seemed to be enjoying it just as much though. A big smile on both faces.
However one more thing happened. It was during their stay that the couple snuck away. While normally not in public without a spotter or someone to keep tabs on them, the couple snuck out. It seemed they wanted a secret date.
It was later revealed that they went to see the Cirque du Soleil show. A very public event but the couple couldn’t help but go. They were able to talk to a few gymnasts about their daughter, Princess Charlotte, loving gymnastics herself.
