The royal family tend to be a pretty fancy bunch, but one thing you can count on is that when they go on their "walkabouts" (read: the tradition of meandering down the street at events and greeting strangers), they are 100 percent down to shake your hand. And maybe even accept the random teddy bear you shove at them!
But you know who isn't down to shake your hand if she runs into you? This lady:
Princess Anne is not having it when it comes to physical interaction with royal family fan-girls and boys, a fact that she explains in Queen of the World. "We never shook hands," she says in a sneak peek of the documentary. "The theory was that you couldn’t shake hands with everybody, so don’t start. So I kind of stick with that, but I noticed others don’t. It's not for me to say that it's wrong, but I think the initial concept was that it was patently absurd to start shaking hands. And it seems to be that it's become a shaking hands exercise rather than a walkabout if you see what I mean."

Anne also threw significant shade at people wanting to take selfies with her, saying
"Phones are bad enough, but the iPads-you can’t even see their heads. No idea who you’re talking to. I either don’t bother or just say, 'Look, if you want to ask…I suggest you put that down.' It is weird. People don’t believe they’ve experienced the event unless they’ve taken a photograph."
Wow, Princess Anne, giving us the brutal lesson in living in the moment we never knew we needed.
FYI, Queen of the World air Monday, October 1 on HBO at 8 p.m.
