Royal kiss: Why Queen and Kate Middleton’s embrace is ‘BIG NEWS for Duchess’


KATE, the Duchess of Cambridge, surprised royal fans this week when she kissed the Queen instead of her performing her usual curtsy for the monarch, and an expert has said the unexpected greeting means “big news” for the mum-of-three.

Kate, 37, appeared to break from royal protocol with the double-cheek kiss at the Chelsea Flower Show. But according to royal expert Daniela Elser the fact she was allowed to do it meant “a breathtakingly big tick of approval”. Since the pictures emerged, royal fans have been debating over whether Kate threw royal tradition out the window by planting a smacker on the 93-year-old or if she was given permission to do so beforehand.

Kate has long been a fan of the great outdoors and is keen to use her platform to encourage families to enjoy spending time with one another in natural settings.
