Kate Middleton and Prince William Break Royal Selfie Rule For EPIC Picture - And They Love It Too!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had a fun first day in Jamaica as
they visited Bob Marley’s old Kingston neighbourhood of Trench Town.

While there, the royal duo didn’t hesitate in trying out a bobsleigh
made for two under the watchful eye of Jamaica’s latest Cool Runnings team.

It was at this engagement that the couple broke the reported “royal
selfie rule” and posed for a fun picture with the team. In the snap, the
couple can be seen smiling from ear to ear whilst sitting inside the bobsleigh
and surrounded by the whole team.

The now-iconic snap was later shared on the Jamaica Bobsleigh &
Skeleton team’s official Instagram account and even William and Kate reacted to
the post!

“What an honour it is to have The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge not
only in Jamaica but sitting in one of our history-making bobsleighs! We are
thankful for the support and looking forward to once again being the
#HottestThingOnIce in the 2026 Winter Olympics!” the team captioned the
photo, which was quickly liked by over two thousand people.

Reacting to the post, William and Kate wrote back: “Lovely to meet
you all today.” Resharing it on their Instagram Stories, they added:
“Selfie for the archives.”

While there is no set rule for royals to not take part in selfies,
generally speaking, royals politely decline photographs as they are often
focused on an engagement when out in public, and in their working capacity.

The times when you will see them in a selfie is when they’ve
accidentally photobombed one.

Prince Harry once admitted that he “hates selfies”. During a
visit to the Australian War Memorial in Canberra, he turned down the request of
a young fan, explaining: “No, I hate selfies. Seriously, you need to get
out of it (the habit), I know you’re young, selfies are bad. Just take a normal
photograph!”

The Queen has also previously revealed that she finds it “disconcerting”
and “strange” when she is faced with a sea of people trying to take
selfies with her.
