Guess, that's to prevent everybody from coming up to take a hug.. apparently Michelle Obama didn't get the memo.

Neither did Paul Keating, former Prime Minister of Australia, who put his hand on the Queen's back. He was dubbed the "Lizard of Oz". Tony Abbott, another former Prime Minister did the same to Prince William.

The royals are just people, IMO entitled to no more courtesy or respect than any other person one encounters in a formal situation.  Neither of the Aussie touchings was more than the sort of thing pollies do every day and Aussies - especially Labor republicans like Keating - aren't hard-wired to defer to members of the English Windsors in the same way Brits are.  Reading Michelle Obama's account of her encounter, I doubt HM was at all offended by Michelle's light, affectionate embrace.  She might have enjoyed it.  I cannot imagine what William thought about being touched by Abbott, but that happened in Australia, and William is only the heir's heir, not our head of state, and he doesn't even have a formal role in Oz.

That reminds of the next part of Sissi, where she has to learn the protocol and is informed that there're only a few ladies permitted to visit her in her rooms.

Okay, I will try to memorize that nonsense...is her answer.

There was a list of ladies and gentlemen, who were allowed to visit her. Of course they were all of noble families.

In the film they're called "appartementmäßige Damen" (apartment like ladies).

At the Royal Palace of Turin in Turin, Italy the rooms of the Prince of Piedmont's apartments were occupied by the first born child of Savoy kings after the day of his wedding. For this reason decorations had to change frequently, according to contemporary fashion.
