The British royal family always looks impeccable. It also seems only natural that all the staff should look just as perfect. But Prince William has his own ideas about this. In this article, I’ll tell you about the dress code for his personal staff and why he chose it.

In the book “Courtiers: the Hidden Power Behind the Crown,” a former employee of the British royal family talks about what it’s like to work with the royals. In addition to details about their characters, their preferences are also discussed.


This is the dress code for Prince William’s staff

It turns out that Prince William doesn’t want his staff to wear suits. Despite his royal family, he wants life indoors, at Kensington Palace, to be as normal as possible. His children run in and out of his office all day, and he doesn’t want Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis to feel hindered by the staff’s clothing.

Initially, the staff was only allowed to dress informally on Fridays. But the well-known “casual Friday” quickly became the standard dress code. At one point, the Prince of Wales expressly requested his staff not to wear suits, but to dress casually. They are only required to dress formally for important meetings or visits to Buckingham Palace.

So you see: casualization is even making its way into the British royal family.
