There’s no denying the Windsors follow a hefty rulebook ... from not showing public displays of affection and not eating garlic, to only wearing nude nail polish and keeping quiet on political opinions.

Yes, it's a lot to take in.

And now we've discovered another rule the royal's have to follow - and it’s all to do with their birthdays.

Yesterday was the Duchess of Cambridge's 37th birthday.

And that was eating a slice of her birthday cake before the Queen!

Yep, traditionally, the birthday boy or girl would get first dibs on a slice of cake.

But according to royal rules, no one is allowed to eat before the Queen – and this includes birthday cake.

Unfortunately for Kate Middleton, she is also not allowed to accept any gifts from people who aren’t friends or family.

Unless the Duchess has received a lovely bouquet of flowers, consumable items or copies of books, she will be forced to turn them away.
