BBC News - The close relationship between the royals and the navy

Every day is a school day

There was only one jarring moment. In 1920 the Admiralty issued orders to reduce the width of an admiral's gold lace stripes. But they failed to consult King George V, who not only refused to wear the new stripes, but insisted that no other members of the Royal Family should either. To this day, members of the Royal Family wearing an admiral's uniform wear slightly wider gold braid.

Top marks for keeping a straight face though. Fair do's.
