By helicopter to Cornwall, Kate Middleton and Prince William broke Queen Elizabeth II's golden rule.

On September 8th, the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall paid their first joint visit to Falmouth.

The late Queen was concerned that the newlyweds would perish in a helicopter crash.

Because helicopters are dangerous, the Queen asked William to refrain from flying, especially in bad weather.

The Queen is concerned that all five of them flying together could be hazardous and result in a constitutional crisis.

William's grandmother advised him to "stop flying himself," no matter how good a pilot he was.

Although William is an excellent pilot, the Queen believes that severe weather and accidents can occur at any time.

William and Kate preserve the monarchy, but the Queen worried about their safety.

In recent years, William and Kate have risen to the occasion, and the future looks bright with them at the helm after Charles.
