The royal family is a family of prestige, power and respect. Living life as a royal certainly isn’t the same as living life as a regular person, or even a celebrity. Being a member of the royal family means that you must abide by certain rules and ways of life, and to go against these rules would be considered indecent and improper.
In royal circles, some phrases, sayings and words are looked down upon. Because the royal family is just that—royal, they cannot be seen as remotely close to common folk. Although members of the royal family like Kate Middleton are not necessarily banned from saying certain words or phrases, some phrases are certainly looked down upon and avoided at all costs.
If you want to know more about what words or phrases members of the royal family are not encouraged to say, here are 16 of them.
1. Portions: Royals find that the proper way to term their food servings is by calling them “helpings” instead of portions.
2. Patio: If you ask a royal family member if they know what a patio is, they may give you a blank stare. In the royal palace, it’s considered a “terrace.”
3. Function: The royals do not attend functions, but rather they attend “parties.”
4. Lounge/Living Room: In the royal world, there is no such thing as a lounge or a living room. Instead they have a “drawing room” or a “sitting room.”
