This isnt the UK, they aren't royal here. Just people. When in the USA their rules don't apply.
That's why Obama wasn't invited to The Royal Wedding a couple of years ago.

For my own edification, what, exactly, does a dicky bird sound like?

On topic....isn't this type of thing exactly why Diana was so loved....she did not follow the same stuffy traditions as the other royals?
Not to worry...most Americans have never figured out that they lost the War of 1812.

According to history, America waited until they were sure that the Brits would be able to pay for all the ammo and tanks befor joining in?

It's custom in the UK to not touch royals. Michelle Obama caused a scandal when Obama was first elected because she touched Queen Elizabeth. Just because we don't do it that way in the USA doesn't mean their customs and rules shouldn't be respected. If you ever find yourself around a royal: no touch. It's very rude.
