Prince William and Kate Bend Royal Rule For Fan In Scotland

Prince William and Kate appeared
to break a royal rule as they met members of the public during an
engagement in Glasgow, Scotland on Wednesday. William and Kate were greeting
fans outside the Wheatley Group when they made the unusual move to stop for a
selfie with one delighted well-wisher.

The royals happily posed and
beamed as one woman held out her phone and switched it to selfie mode, with
William, 39, even placing his arm around her shoulder for the group snap.

Generally speaking, royals
politely decline photographs with fans 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.

William’s brother 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. The
implication was that Her Majesty considers it bad manners for well-wishers to
be looking at a screen when she makes public appearances as a guest. She
confided in US ambassador Matthew Barzun, who told Tatler: “She was
essentially saying: ‘I miss eye contact.'”

William and Kate were visiting
Scotland during Mental Health Awareness Week to carry out engagements
focused on causes close to their heart, including mental health and
homelessness. At the Wheatley Group, they saw first-hand how the organization
is transforming the lives of disadvantaged or vulnerable people, including
those at risk of homelessness, an issue that has long been a focus of William’s
work.
