Kate accused of ‘rejection of job’ as she moves to break major rule
Kate, Princess of Wales, has been accused of “rejecting her own job” after she was tipped to wear a floral headpiece at King Charles’s Coronation rather than the traditional tiara. Writing for news.com.au, royal commentator Daniela Elser said the move would be “much more than a bit of an out-there style choice but something of a rejection of her job description”.

The commentator added: “If Kate goes down this slightly hippy dippy route, it would be hugely controversial, bucking tradition and depriving the public, Fleet Street editors and Tik Tok from getting to revel in the sight of the Princess done up like a diamond-encrusted dinner.”
It comes after The Times reported the break from tradition, highlighting that it would keep with King Charles’s focus on sustainability and a love of nature.
Other sustainable aspects of the ceremony include re-using old thrones rather than having new ones made, and Westminster Abbey’s floral displays being sourced from Britain rather than overseas.
Kensington Palace has declined to comment on the Princess’s headgear for Coronation day, saying the public will have to “wait and see”.
