Times when the Royal family haven't acted very Royal at all



Times when the Royal family haven’t acted very Royal at all

It honestly seems as if the Royals are far too perfect for their own good. There’s just something about the clothes, the hair, and that fixed-on smile. It wouldn’t matter how long we spent in front of a mirror practicing that wave, or the Royal curtsey, it just wouldn’t be up to par with Kate Middleton’s perfect poise, nor achieve the regality any of them seem to command. Well, it seems the Royals do have flaws, and we’re talking the brilliant kind.

This unmasked reaction


We almost never get to see an unguarded reaction from the Royals, but this one is perfect. Regular people don’t need to hold back their reactions if they find something shocking, or if they’re invested in a game they’re watching. However, the Royals are a different matter.

Although here it seems like these guys seriously lost a bet somewhere. Or perhaps they were just absolutely devastated to watch as famous tennis player, Andy Murray, loses when he was doing so well.

Queen Elizabeth II laughing her head off


It’s not every day we get to see Queen Liz having a laugh, but it appears that something really got her going. The Queen was visiting Scotland, as she does every year, and here she was being entertained at the Braemar Gathering in 2006.

We’re not too sure what was going on, but whatever it was really had the crowd going, and it certainly tickled the Queen’s funny bone. Most of the time, she has quite a stern and guarded expression, something she had to master over the years. However, it’s nice to see her relaxed and enjoying herself.

A close call


Even Royals aren’t immune to poor balance, and it seems there was a seriously close call here. The Cambridges were traveling in a carriage alongside the Earl and Countess of Wessex; otherwise known as Prince Edward and Sophie.

Well, it seems that, while trying to get up and out of the carriage, Sophie nearly fell on top of Kate Middleton. The shock in the women’s eyes soon followed barrels of laughter as the two realized what had just happened. It’s not every day that a Royal falls over themselves, but at least they could have a good laugh about it afterward.

The real reaction


The world got to see some beautiful snapshots, as Kate and William presented their newborn baby for the first time. However, while they may look perfectly in control of themselves, a picture of serenity and calm; this photo tells a different story.

Here you can visibly see the complete and utter disbelief running through Prince William. After all, he has just gone from having a very pregnant wife, to having his first son. This was the first time the couple became parents, so it’s no wonder they dropped their guard for a moment or two. It was nice they could enjoy the moment naturally.

What’s he looking at?


We desperately want to know what Prince Charles is being shown by his son. He looks like a strange mixture between disgusted and amused. You can just tell that it’s something cheeky if we are judging by the look on Prince Harry’s face, he looks so mischievous.

No doubt many parents have been shown some weird and wonderful things by their children when they’re older, but because it’s Prince Charles, there’s just something much funnier about it. It’s good to know that even the older Royals can muck around a bit. If only we knew what was being shown on that cell phone.

Even William and Kate messed around


There’s almost nothing more satisfying than seeing that the future King of England being subjected to the silent treatment. It looks as if these two have had a night of partying, and he has somehow wound her up. Just look at the expression on her face.

She looks done, while he seems like he needs some bread and water. Safe to say that these two have come a long way since then, but at least we know they were no better than any other young adult!

The curious Prince


It’s the age-old question, what does a gentleman wear under his traditional kilt? Well, honestly, it seems that Prince William wanted that answered for himself, so he decided to figure it out once and for all. Here the curious Prince can be seen lifting his father, Prince Charles’ kilt for a peek.
The curious Prince

Of course, he had no idea what he was doing, but we bet Prince Charles probably went a bit red in the cheeks! Kids will be kids whether they’re Royal or not.

Digging into some ice cream


Camilla Parker Bowles honestly seems as if she can’t get enough of this good ice cream, and we don’t blame her! Here she is, letting the entire world melt away, as she has a taste of that glorious looking ice cream.

It really looks as if she’s enjoying herself here, just look at the intensity in her eyes as she bites down on that dessert. Behind her, it seems as if Prince Charles is trying to settle the bill.

Prince Philip gets picky


What’s hilarious about this picture is not just the fact that Prince Philip seems to have no problem getting acquainted with the insides to his nostrils, but the Queen looks so fed up. We all get that way with our partners at some point or another, but because it’s the Queen and her husband, it seems all the more strange.

However, they’ll be just like everyone else, even if they have been married for a whopping 70 years.

Prince Harry can be pretty gross


Everyone always knew that Harry was the rebellious one, but this seems a bit far. As a Royal, it’s almost certain that he got into trouble for this, it’s not just unseemly for a Royal, but for anyone. He appears to be spitting out of his mouth and onto someone else with a whole load of effort.

He seems to be about to be presented with a trophy too, making him a terrible winner. Hopefully, he’ll have learned some manners since.

A bit of healthy competition


Even the Royals like to have a bit of healthy competition every now and then, and who can resist the chance to beat a sibling? It seems that Prince Harry and William were taking the whole thing very seriously, while Kate was just having a bit of fun.

We would wager that, judging by the fact that Prince Harry is quite a bit further ahead, that he probably won. It seems like the future King isn’t good at everything.

Giving it a leviosa


These guys aren’t like how Royals used to be, they like to give things a go. They’re not wandering around, empty-minded, without a care in the world, these guys want to have a bit of fun. It seems strange to think that Kate and William are Harry Potter fans, but why wouldn’t they be?

Here they are showing off their wand skills and giving it a good go. Kate makes it look utterly effortless, while William seems a bit more clumsy, remind you of anyone?

The Royal Princess


Kids are just great, aren’t they? Well, while Royal children may have to grow up with strict rules to abide by, that doesn’t make them any less cheeky or mischievous. Here Princess Charlotte can be seen scrunching up her face in a hilarious expression, probably trying to see something better, or being confused by whatever it is.

Safe to say that these Royal children are just like most other kids who like to muck around.

What’s going on here?


It seems Prince Harry is behaving like Prince Harry again. We have no idea what he’s trying to do here, maybe it’s part of some funny joke? Either way, it seems Prince Harry has some awkward encounters just like everyone else.

Don’t believe that everyone, especially school children, will laugh at your jokes. In fact, they may even laugh at you. Or maybe he’s just upset because it’s raining; either way, his reaction is pretty funny.

Kate’s parenting frustration


Honestly, when it comes to parenting, this is pretty standard. However, where Kate is concerned, it’s incredible that this shot even exists. Back in the day, Royals left everything to their nannies. While they still have them now, it’s not quite the same.

Here is Kate, frustratedly wiping whatever it is Prince George has around his mouth. When we see Royals bedazzled and bejeweled in their finest outfits, it’s nice to get a more natural shot like this.

Having a laugh


There are no shy giggles or coy expressions here, oh no, William is getting into this. Of course, Kate has kept her composure totally perfect, but William seems to have lost it. Kate and William are supporting a marathon event by handing out water, but William has gone somewhat rogue.

We have no idea why, though. Does he know the woman running, or was she trying to douse him in water? Either way, it’s pretty funny.

Say goodbye to calm composure


Sometimes it’s a little harder for the Duchess to keep her calm composure, particularly when there’s a ball hurtling toward her at an insane speed. You can see her face contorting in concern as she works out how she’s going to hit it.

Of course, to make it even worse, she’s performing this in front of thousands of people. So, if it wasn’t bad enough already, and then she made this hilarious face.

Showing nan how to work her phone


This is hilarious because, of course, Harry isn’t worried about being in the presence of the Queen, she is his grandma after all. He looks so pleased with himself, we’re not sure who’s taking the picture, but the moment seemed like you had to be there.

Of course, in the background is a very average looking Queen Elizabeth II, trying to work her smartphone with her glasses on. You couldn’t get more normal if you tried.

Fun in the snow


Kate seems to love having a joke with her husband, but here he doesn’t look as if he’s appreciating the snowball to the face. While they might be covered head to toe in expensive snow gear, it doesn’t stop the snow from being freezing.

Here is the future King getting hit in the face from a snowball by his wife. After all, they need to have some downtime every now and then, right? Otherwise, life would be no fun.

Too close for comfort


With all the Royal engagements the Royals get up to, one or two are bound to go wrong. Well, here’s Charles and Camilla when they were invited to witness a birds of prey show, with better than front row seats.

Of course, it seems as if the eagle took them by surprise when it started to take off. Eagles have an incredible and deceptive wingspan, so they probably didn’t foresee it being so close to their faces.

Giggling Royals


Every year the Royal Family has to meet on the balcony of the palace for Trooping the Color, and this year it seems the Cambridges were having extra fun. Instead of maintaining their proper composure, here they are having a right giggle.

Prince George must have said something truly hilarious, since it seems as if he has his father in fits of giggles, to the point he is wiping a tear from his eye. Of course, it seems the humor has also reached momma kate and even Prince Philip.

Wait, I’m stuck!


Almost everyone has looked at either Kate Middleton or Meghan Markle wondering how on earth they go about their day wearing those heels without a hitch. Well, the answer is, they don’t. Here is Kate clearly having some technical difficulties.

Of course, she deals with it as gracefully as ever, but the fact remains that she got herself stuck and had to get herself unstuck, without falling over herself. See, it really can happen to the best of us.

A family get together


Even when all the Royal Family members get together, they like to have fun. Here they are, all having a family picture taken, and one of the first to include Meghan. However, something must be going on, because they all seem to be looking beyond the picture and at something hilarious happening in the background.

Even the well-composed Royals can’t stop themselves from having a laugh when the moment takes them, they really are just like everyone else.
