Since becoming the wife of Prince William, Kate Middleton has had to learn the manners of royalty and behave according to the rules. And it is that being under the focus of the public eye in each step she takes, Middleton has to be very careful with her behavior and also with her way of dressing. That is something that the princess is very clear about, that's why we always see her looking impeccable from head to toe and that includes not wearing her nails painted in bright colors such as red. If you look at the photos of the Duchess of Cambridge, not one of them ever sees her nails with striking color enamel and that has a reason.
As reported by Ok Magazine, it turns out that the style rules of British royalty dictate that when attending an official event its members can only wear nails with an enamel in a pale shade or no color. It is even a rule that Queen Elizabeth II, who has been wearing the same enamel color since 1989, has followed to the letter. Her favorite is the Essie brand Ballet Slippers. A light pink shade that goes well with any skin tone and matches any outfit.
The princess and the other women in the family cannot wear false nails either because the royal family considers this as well as the bold colors to be vulgar. Another thing that cannot be a striking color either is lip color, that's why Middleton always wears nude or pale pink colors.
Of course, to belong to this royal family, clothing must also be more demure. Knee-length skirts, blouses with no plunging necklines and zero pieces completely fitted to the body. These same rules will have to be followed by Meghan Markle if she gets to marry Prince Harry.
If you've ever dreamed of being a real life princess, after reading this you might think twice or would you be willing to sacrifice your style for it?
