‘Royal Rule Breakers’: Prince William and Kate accused of breaching coronavirus regulations

The UK royal family have been accused of breaching coronavirus regulations while on an outing to a park in Sandringham, England.

The royals, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children, were photographed in close proximity to other family members in a park on Sunday, according to a leading British publication.

Prince William and his family were walking alongside his uncle Prince Edward and his family while visiting a Christmas-themed woodland walk near the Queen’s Norfolk residence Sandringham according to the report.




Pictures showed more than six individuals present, with the two families standing in close proximity while visiting Luminate Sandringham.

Norfolk falls under England’s Tier 2 coronavirus restrictions, limiting outdoor gatherings to six people.

Visitors to the attraction are asked to remain in groups of no more than six throughout their visit, according to guidance issued by the organizers of the woodland walk, Luminate Sandringham.



A royal associate in anonymity said: “There were moments on the 90 minute walk where it was difficult to keep the two family groups apart, particularly at bottlenecks on the trail.”

UK is currently grappling with a rise in coronavirus cases and the emergence of a potentially more contagious variant.
