This UK Royal breached the Code of Conduct during Barack Obama’s 2016 UK visit

Prince George, son of Prince William of Wales and Princess Kate Middleton, broke royal protocol in 2016 when the duo hosted dinner for then-US President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.

According to a report in Hello magazine, the royal children have been banned from meeting the heads of various states. However, this rule was broken when the Welsh children later met UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Canada’s Justin Trudeau.

However, in this case, it was George’s attire that violated the protocol. Pictures online show her arriving to meet Obama in a dressing gown.

I don’t know how Obama felt about this. But he later issued a statement saying it was a „slap in the face”.

„Prince George showed up to our meeting in his bathroom last week. It was a slap in the face—a clear breach of protocol,” she said, according to the magazine.

What is the dressing protocol for British Royals?

According to the report, there are three stages in the ritual, each requiring a different dress code.

First, royals are expected to wear white tie to royal events or state parties. On these occasions women may wear long, formal evening wear.

Second is black tie events. Here, men should wear a short night jacket and black tie or bowtie. Women can choose between a cocktail dress and a trouser suit.

Thirdly, the royals can wear smart casuals like jumpers with collared shirts.

In the report, etiquette expert Lucy Hume was quoted as saying that it was always safer for the Royals to err on the side of caution.

„A royal event is not necessarily a time to go too unconventional or too alternative. It’s one of those occasions where it makes sense to stick with tradition,” he said.
