What The Royal Baby Can Eat, According To Royal Rules
The royal baby will probably eat with their hands. But it’s important to know the rules for proper utensil placement.
At our house, it’s every man, woman, and child for themselves at meal times. You need a fork? Getchu a fork! You want to use a spoon for your entire meal? Be our guest. But the royal family does things a bit differently, and of course, a bit more formal. The royal family is allowed to leave the dining room during a meal (say, to use the loo). But if they step away, they need to mind how they place their utensils. Crossing them across the plate tells staff that they’re not done with their meal. Angling the fork and knife across the plate with the handles on the right side means the staff can clear their plate.
