have told the reporters, who have applied to cover their visit, to follow a proper dress code.
According to the edict, journalists wishing to cover royal engagements, whether in the United Kingdom or abroad, should comply with the dress code on formal occasions out of respect for the guests of the queen, or any other member of the royal family, the New York Daily News reported.
The warning told reporters to show some respect and that smart attire for men includes the wearing of a “jacket and tie, while for women a trouser or skirt suit.”
The guidelines warn that slobs are so not welcome to cover the royal couple and anybody wearing jeans or trainers will not be admitted and casually dressed members of the media will be turned away, and that the order also applies to technicians.
Prince William and Kate will visit New York City and Washington, DC, for three days, their first official visit to the US in three years.
