24. The Queen doesn't make the rules.

But I doubt anything would happen to the Princesses if they disobeyed, other than Frosty Royal Court Reception and a hell of a lot of public pressure. Royalty is a thing and it probably still exists because of these archaic rules which separate them and elevates them and basically forces them into gilded slavery.

Hopefully this new generation will change many of these rules. As it is Charles already changed the rules by marrying Camilla and still keeping his titles and place in the succession. Prince William and Kate have also broken with tradition by not living in Buckinham Palace and instead having their own flat.

Change is happening and will probably be faster after Queen Elizabeth dies. Thatís good, but to see the passing of such traditions will probably be very difficult for much of the population.

Hell! Look at how many Americans are eating this royal wedding tradition up!
