It’s no surprise that the royal family has quite a few rules when it comes to fashion and appearances. The royal family features some of the most photographed figures in the world, which is why they are required to meet certain dressing protocol while stepping out in public. Although we understand why looking polished and professional is important, we have to admit that there are a few royal fashion rules that seem quite outdated. Follow along for 12 royal fashion rules that shouldn’t exist today:

12. Only wear a tiara for white-tie affairs

In the royal family, tiaras are viewed as sacred and are only to be worn for high-profile, white tie affairs. This rule, however, was slightly bent when Princess Diana joined the royal family and decided to wear tiaras for many more public occasions. Her style was bold, which is why wearing a tiara was fitting with her sense of fashion. In more recent years, Kate Middleton has been more modest with her tiara use, but we think that the Royals should be given free reign to wear tiaras whenever they please!

11. Don’t wear colored nail polish

Colored nail polish has been a huge fashion faux pas in the royal family for decades. The Queen allegedly requires all royal women to wear clear or soft pink on their nails rather than anything bright or overly flashy. The Queen put the rule in place as an effort to ensure the royal women always look natural and classic. So far, both Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have abided by this rule but we think that bright reds and purples would look fabulous on them!
