Prince William and Kate Middleton told off radio host for mocking Princess Charlotte

BBC Radio 1 host Greg James saw a picture of Charlotte standing on her tippy-toes to shake her teacher’s hand on the first day of school in September.

“I saw the photo during the show and said, ‘Who the hell shakes hands with their teacher on the first day?’” James said.

A few weeks later, he paid a visit to Kensington Palace, where Williams and Kate had a word with him:

“They said: ‘We were listening on the morning of little Charlotte’s first day, and we want to talk to you about the handshaking thing … I went: ‘Oh God, no!’”

He went on, “They’d heard me saying this school was so posh they had to shake hands with their teacher every day. They were not like that in my day. You were pleased if you got a smile.”

After the awkward exchange, James believes that all has been resolved, saying, “I’m sure it’s all absolutely fine.”
