Prince William, just like the other members of the royal family, needs to follow protocol. When his late grandmother Queen Elizabeth was still the monarch, the Prince of Wales had to bow or curtsy to her. And now that King Charles is the new monarch, he needs to do the same to his father.

Prince William Doesn’t Always Bow To King Charles When They See Each Other In Public?

But according to Yahoo! News, Prince William does not always follow royal protocol. This doesn’t mean, though, that he’s disrespecting King Charles. Rather, it needs to be pointed out that how Prince William and King Charles are behind closed doors is how they also are in public.


A source told Page Six that since Queen Consort Camilla is the new queen consort, Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton, also need to bow or curtsy to her.

“The personal impact is likely the protocol changes that roll into action almost immediately. The family will now have to bow or curtsy to King Charles and Queen [Consort] Camilla,” the source said.

Prince William Needs To Bow To Queen Consort Camilla In Public?

Editor Joe Little echoed the source’s claims by saying that everyone in the royal family or even outside that comes in contact with King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla needs to bow to them.


“It would be the protocol to bow to the new king and queen any time the royal family meets the new king and queen, the done thing would be to bow or curtsy to them,” he said.

Prince William Calls King Charles His Majesty, Sir, Or Pa?


Meanwhile, Prince William also needs to respectfully address King Charles when they are out in public. So, Prince William would sometimes refer to his father as His Majesty or Sir.

But another source stressed that when they are at home, Prince William would still call King Charles “pa” because this is how he has always referred to him.

“The Queen and Prince Philip were Ma and Pa to their children; whatever William and Harry called Charles and Camilla yesterday, they will call them that today,” the source said.

As for Queen Consort Camilla, Prince William also needs to respectfully refer to his stepmom in public. But at home, he most likely calls her differently.


According to royal expert Christopher Andersen, Prince William and Prince Harry were blindsided by Queen Elizabeth’s request to give their stepmom the Queen Consort title. For many years, royal fans thought that Camilla will only be referred to as Princess Consort.
