Queen Elizabeth’s dinner table rule is pretty relevant

Her Majesty may be 96, but she still keeps tabs on her royal grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Especially at the table. Queen Elizabeth has a reputation for enlisting many rules for the rest of her family, but one of her table rules for the royal grandchildren is something we can all follow.

Naturally, as someone who hosts state dinners with state officials and visiting dignitaries, Queen Elizabeth has many rules of etiquette for such occasions. No one can eat before she eats, and they must stop eating when she”cutlery moves into finished positioneveryone should follow suit, whether there is food left on their plate or not,” said etiquette expert William Hanson. Marie Claire. Too bad if you’re still hungry; you’re done when she says she’s done. You should also drink from the same spot on your mug, especially if you’re wearing lipstick.

These are the rules for diners, of course. When it comes to dining with members of her own family, Queen Elizabeth keeps it a little less formal. But she still rules with an iron fist. Especially if one of the royal grandchildren tries to pull out a cell phone during dinner. It’s a big no in the royal family.

TV presenter Gyles Brandreth has shared some information about to visit Her Majesty for dinner with ITV This morningexplaining that she is his “model in all things”, by The mirror. “One of the things she won’t allow at the table with her grandchildren and even her great-grandchildren is cell phones during meals.”

Brandreth went on to add that while it might not be as complicated as a state dinner, Queen Elizabeth also didn’t eat in front of the television. “She likes formal dinners, and I like pretty formal meals too. That doesn’t mean you have to have a napkin. But you have to sit down at the table and don’t eat with your mouth open!

It’s probably not a big deal yet for 9-year-old Prince George, 7-year-old Princess Charlotte, or 4-year-old Prince Louis, but let’s face it. They will eventually have cell phones. And their great-grandmother will tell them to put them to dinner. Not Her Majesty’s strangest ruler by far. That honor goes to his banning the board game Monopoly.
