Prince William and Kate Middleton have been accused of violating English coronavirus rules.
The couple was spotted out on a Christmas walk in a group of 9 royals.
The rules currently prohibit groups over the age of 6 from meeting outside.
Eek, it looks like the royals were accused of breaking England's strict lockdown rules when Prince William and Kate Middleton were spotted on a Christmas stroll at the Queen's Norfolk residence in a group that was definitely larger than six .
In case you are unfamiliar with the UK's coronavirus logs, people in Tier 2 (including the Queen's Norfolk residence) have been asked not to gather outside in groups of more than six to watch for the spread of Covid-19 to stop.
Per The Sun the rule is:
"You can see friends and family who you don't live with (or who you don't have a support bubble with) outdoors in a group of no more than six people. This limit of six includes children of all ages."
But the Cambridges and their three children were photographed walking in a group of nine with Prince Edward and his family, leading to allegations that they were breaking protocol.
There already seems to be a backlash when a fellow visitor tells The Daily Mail (who posted photos of the walk):
“In my opinion, they clearly violated the Covid rules because nine of them came from two separate households. They all obviously had a fun evening. You could see the royal youths were having a great time. But I couldn't help but think that it was one rule for her and another for the rest of us. It was pretty obvious, really. "
Meanwhile, royal sources tell The Daily Mail that they simply met by chance:
“The two families were given separate, consecutive slots to visit the trail just before it opened to the general public. They came and went in their own family groups. As anyone with young children will know, there were moments on the 90 minute long Walk in which it was difficult to tell the two family groups apart, especially when there were bottlenecks on the way. "
Sounds like there's no drama to be found, so keep going!
