Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton announced their decision to turn the royal protocol upside down and address them by name, not by title.

The news was revealed in Mirror this weekend, when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge reportedly wish to abandon outdated formalities – including bows and curtseys – while they are on duty.

According to a royal source, the move was prompted by their recent catastrophic tour of the Caribbean.

A source said: “They want to be more accessible, less formal, less stuffy and break away from a lot of traditions.”

The prince plans to break the rulebook to “keep up with the times,” according to the Sunday Mirror.

William is said to be concentrating on a more graceful, more modern monarchy to ensure its survival in the years to come.

A source said: “When the team returned to London, the couple held a hearing with assistants. They reviewed everything and identified specific things that went wrong and how to improve the way forward.

“The general consensus was that the tour seemed outdated, out of touch, too formal and stuffy. So now it’s more ‘Wills and Kate’, not the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge … ‘Just call me Wills’ thing.”

“They want to try to avoid bowing and bowing in public, being more approachable, less formal, less stuffy, and breaking away from a lot of traditions and focusing on the modern monarchy.”

The royal couple was shocked by criticism after their Caribbean tour, which took place in early March, and many critics cited the imperialist connotations of most official processes.

This was especially true when the couple shook hands with well-wishers standing behind a metal fence fence in Trenchtown, Jamaica.

One Twitter user perfectly captured public sentiment at the time, posting, “It’s all wrong.”

Meanwhile, the author Omid Scoby, who co-authored “In Search of Freedom”, a controversial biography of Prince Harry and wife Megan – wrote: “Fans climb walls, climb over railings, etc. “It’s nothing new – we saw it on every tour.”

In contrast, a royal source said Harry and Megan were perceived as “down-to-earth, normal people” during their participation in the Invictus Games in the Netherlands last month.

While a week-long tour of the former British colonies has made 39-year-old William and 40-year-old Kate painfully aware of how much the monarchy will need to evolve and modernize if it wants to survive.

One day during the tour, the couple was criticized for riding standing on an open-topped Land Rover as part of the first commissioning parade on March 24th.

Several demonstrators also gathered outside the British High Commission in Kingston, singing traditional Rastafarian songs and holding banners to apologize for the hand she played in the slave trade.

It was the couple's recent disastrous Caribbean tour that prompted the transition to less pomp and more modernity.

Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness also told William and Kate during a photo shoot that his country wants to become independent of the Commonwealth so that it can finally resolve a number of “unresolved” issues.

William was not involved in the matter, and subsequently did not appeal for removal The Queen as head of state in a speech at the residence of the governor-general.

However, he said he agreed with his father’s statement Prince Charles that “the heinous atrocities of slavery forever tarnish our history.”

William then spoke of his “deep sorrow” over the institution of slavery, which he said should never have existed.

According to a royal source, the overall consensus of the tour was that it was “stupid” to continue relying on old royal traditions, and the couple reportedly wanted to turn back time and do things differently.

The source added: “If they could wave a magic wand and go back in time, they would change almost everything in the Caribbean tour.

“William and Kate are now well aware that for some countries of the world and for the younger generations, the monarchy is a symbol of colonialism and the past.

“Now it seems silly to celebrate this and promote royal traditions during the tour.

“One of the big mistakes they identified was repeating the military parade of the Queen and Prince Philip, standing in an open-topped Land Rover.

“Looking back, the team decided that this is one of the main symbols that shows that the royal family has not changed and has been going on over time. He portrayed a very elitist and inviolable monarchy, and that can no longer be the image he must portray to survive. ”

Until now, William and Kate were “perceived as royal stars” – the queen believed that the younger generation of the royal family would be able to “consolidate the position of the monarchy on a global scale and ensure the Commonwealth.”

However, this was not the case, and the source added: “It was a shock for all of them. A real eye-opener. This caused institutional changes in the monarchy. Otherwise, they simply would not have survived. “
