Times Queen Elizabeth Was Disrespected In Public

President Donald Trump isn’t exactly known for his adherence to … well any sort of etiquette, so it shouldn’t come as a shock that he seemingly forgot the entire royal protocol when he met Queen Elizabeth.

Meghan Markle’s got legs, and she doesn’t know how to use them

She had her legs crossed wrong. What a disrespect to the queen. All royal ladies cross at the ankles or put both legs off to the side.

Let’s hug it out, Liz

We’ve already established that one of the obvious rules of etiquette regarding Queen Elizabeth is to not touch her, which is understandable, considering the security implications.

Rihanna put in some work work work work work online

Rihanna, who is basically music royalty, drew the ire of her majesty’s supporters in April 2017 when she posted a string of hilariously-altered images of the queen on her Instagram. With captions such as “be humble” and “y’all chickens is ash and I’m lotion,” the photos were all shots of Rihanna with the queen’s face superimposed on them.

Princess Diana practically invented disrespecting the queen

If you thought Michelle Obama “hugging” Queen Elizabeth was bad, wait until you hear how her husband turfed it in 2011 during a banquet at Buckingham Palace.
