11. There Are Rules For Gloves
Royal women aren't forced to wear gloves at black-tie events, but the Queen is still a fan of the fashion accessory. But while wearing them, she has to follow a specific set of rules.

She can wear them when she is shaking hands, dancing, on her way to an event, or standing in a receiving line. She has to take them off when she's at the dinner table or ready to pick up a quick appetizer. And the way to properly do that is to pull them finger by finger, and then store them on her lap underneath her napkin.
