On the surface, being a member of the royal family seems like a blast. Who hasn’t dreamed of trading lives with Kate Middleton or Prince William? But it’s not all tours across Europe and gorgeous Kate Spade dresses. There are actually a lot of rules that members of the royal family are expected to follow, and some of them seem impossible for we commoners to even understand.
