William and Kate slammed for breaking social distancing rules at height of Covid

Prince William and Kate Middleton were slammed by royal fans for breaking an important Covid rule during the height of the pandemic.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met with David Attenborough in September 2020 at a private viewing of his documentary – A Life On Our Planet.

The royal couple were joined by their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis and took a picture with the veteran broadcaster at Kensington Palace.

Kensington Royal Instagram posted pictures of the outing, but social media users pointed out the family may have broken the "rule of six" guidelines.

Six people were in the picture – none of whom were wearing masks – as well as at least one photographer and security guard who were also in attendance.

One user said: "David and the Royals equal six on their own, taking into consideration security and the photographer… were government guidelines ignored?"

A second said: "Sir David Attenborough is an amazingly fantastic guy. However, can someone please clarify all the exemptions to the rule of only six.

In a separate tweet, users commented on the fact Prince William, Kate and David Attenborough are not wearing masks in the photographs.

One said: "Are they supposed to be wearing masks? I am confused, earlier today a family was shamed for not wearing masks while getting into their car.

"Here a family is hanging out with a man in the target age group to be susceptible to Covid with no masks. Which one is it?"

The Daily Star contacted the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for comment at the time, but they did not respond.
