The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge warmly greeted royal fans in Kennishead, Glasgow as they embarked on the first of their two-day tour of the country yesterday. |
During their visit the couple visited the Wheatley Group site, to see first-hand how they are transforming the lives of disadvantaged or vulnerable people, including those at risk of homelessness.
As they greeted local residents after the visit, William, 39, shared an affectionate hug with local man William Burns, 66, who was overcome with emotion as he embraced the future king.
The protocol surrounding touching the Royal Family has historically been so strict that a simple breach like a hand on the back, even by a well-meaning dignitary, was enough to spark outrage.
Actually, the media were the ones who were outraged. The royal was usually not bothered at all and the thought the media was making a mountain out of a molehill because somebody took their arm or touched their back when guiding them.
Also, when William says they want to be addressed by their first names, rather than as Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, he does not mean "Call us Wills and Kate"! He wants them to be introduced and referred to as William and Catherine.
