The Absurd Reason 1 Star Was ‘Scolded’ After Meeting Prince Harry

It’s not every day that someone gets to meet a member of the royal family, so when they do, there is really no telling what the reaction will be. After all, we can only imagine how exciting it is to be introduced to a royal, considering as how they are so greatly admired by millions of people around the world.

When meeting Queen Elizabeth, there are strict rules that must be followed. There is a very distinct way to shake her hand, the person greeting her must stay at a certain distance, and there is even a specific thing to say. Although meeting other members of the royal family tends to be just a little more relaxed, tradition pretty much dictates what can or cannot be done.

However, there are some people who just don’t believe in following the rules, and they tend to take things into their own hands, even in the presence of royalty.

This was the case at one point when someone in the celebrity world was introduced to a royal. So, what is the absurd reason that one star was “scolded” after meeting Prince Harry?

As we know, the royals are not just any ordinary group of people, so it makes sense that there are strict guidelines to adhere to. While most of the royal family members are pretty modernized and down to earth, Popsugar reports that there is a protocol that must be followed at all times.

If someone is greeting a member of the British Monarchy, the appropriate thing to do is curtsy or bow your head, although some people simply shake hands. There are also rules regarding how to address a royal when speaking. The queen must be called “your majesty” and “ma’am”, and other royals should be addressed as “your royal highness” as well as “sir” and “ma’am.”

Although these rules, along with others, such as never touching a royal, were strictly enforced years ago, the royals are a bit more lenient these days and most of them aren’t likely to be offended if someone calls them by name. 

Kacey Musgraves reacted differently when meeting Prince Harry

Although the royal family is not nearly as uptight as they were many years ago, most people who meet them are still aware that there are likely some cameras around.

When Kacey Musgraves met Prince Harry, however, she was not at all concerned with who was watching. According to Travel + Leisure, the singer wasn’t the least bit formal when meeting the handsome prince.

It was after the Royal Variety Performance in 2015 that Musgraves was introduced to Prince Harry, and rather than curtsy or shake his hand, she decided to greet him with a high-five.

Prince Harry is quite arguably one of the most relatable members of the royal family. He is notorious for joking around and loving to laugh and have fun.

So, why was Musgraves “scolded” after meeting him? Well, it turns out that people from her record label did not approve of the greeting one bit. Although she herself was pleased with how things went, she was still “scolded” for not being more formal.

It didn’t appear that Harry minded at all that Musgraves chose to greet him in such a casual and non-traditional way since he was seen with a huge smile on his face during the encounter.

We can only imagine that Harry didn’t think twice about it, and Musgraves felt that because he went along with it, that it was just fine. It is wonderful to know that she felt so comfortable meeting the Prince, and he was happy to accept her non-conventional greeting.
