The Queen’s birthday
When celebrating the Queen’s birthday, all family members should be present at the ceremony. And it doesn’t matter if you have just given birth to a child or if you had plans to go on vacation. Exceptions are almost impossible. Everyone should be there for her birthday.
Before hiring a woman for the position of a babysitter for a royal child, the family sends her on special courses. Not only does she master skills in communication with children but she also learns safety rules (including careful driving) and even some martial arts.
Baptizing of newborns
It happens that baptizing is the first official public event in the lives of newborns. The media are, of course, prohibited to attend such events. The infants are baptized by the head of the English church either in Buckingham Palace or in a church chosen by the parents. The babies put on the same dress, one that Queen Victoria wore at her baptism in 1841.
Refusal of diapers
Strange as it may sound, but the royal family doesn’t use diapers. They choose only fabric ones. However, there are some exceptions here as well: to take care of the little Prince William, disposable diapers were used.
