KATE, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William were spotted at Heathrow Airport last week, prompting reports the Cambridge family were jetting off on holiday for half-term. Here are the royal travel rules Kate and William have to follow on their travels.

 

 

Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge joined Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall at the COP26 summit in Glasgow on Monday. But like many families, Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William are thought to have embarked on a holiday only last week while schools were broken up for half-term. William and Kate were seen with Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis and the family’s nanny Maria Borrallo at Heathrow Airport with suitcases.

 

 

Heirs to the throne can’t travel together

Prince William is second in line to the throne while Prince George is third, which adds an extra layer of rules to royal travel for the pair.

 

 

Prince George has sometimes flown on the same flights as his father over the years. But it may well be that in the future, George and William have to travel separately.

 

 

Technically, heirs to the throne shouldn’t fly together under the royal rules. The Queen can waive this in some cases, such as when Prince George flew with Kate and William to Australia as a baby.

 

 

But when George is no longer a child, he might have to travel separately from his father like Prince Charles and Prince William often do. The protocol is in place to protect the line of succession to the throne.

 

 

Passports are necessary

When travelling overseas, the Queen does not require a passport as the nation’s monarch. This is because all British passports are issued in the name of the Queen, so she doesn’t have to have one.
However, William, Kate and their three children are all still required to have a passport when travelling abroad.

 

 

Black outfits must be packed

The Royal Family are thought to bring a black outfit with them on all of their travels. But the reasons for packing the outfit are rather sombre.

 

 

The Royal Family wear black when in mourning, and the outfit is required to be packed in a royal’s luggage in case a family member dies while they are away.

 

 

Queen Elizabeth II was famously abroad in Kenya on a royal tour when her father King George VI died in 1952.
