Photos of the Royal Family That Prove They’re Just Regular People Like Us

Due to longstanding traditions and for their safety, members of the Royal Family are expected to abide by rigid norms. They can’t simply take a stroll or go grocery shopping as we would normally do. They must also adhere to rules about what to wear and how to conduct themselves.


The Royal Family is unlike us in many ways, but behind it all, they are still just regular people. They enjoy joking around, having fun, and laughing. Here are some genuine moments that serve as a reminder that royals are really just like the rest of us.

Who Doesn’t Love Snowball Fights?

It doesn’t matter how old you are; it’s almost impossible to resist the temptation of a snowball fight. The Duchess of Cambridge would say the same. She just couldn’t help herself when she and Prince William went on a ski vacation.

She was clearly having a fantastic time throwing the icy snowball at her husband. But we can’t say the same about William. Since he generally maintains such a royal demeanor, he is scrunching up his face in a way we don’t often see. We love how they can be lighthearted.

Closing His Eyes for a Second

This is a lovely picture of the gorgeous Duchess of Sussex sharing a beautiful moment with her Prince Charming, right? But just look beyond the love for a minute. Prince William is seated on the other side of Duchess Meghan and is clearly struggling to keep his eyes open.

We won’t give him too much grief, though, because this picture was taken at the Anzac Day Ceremony at Westminster Abbey two days after his royal wife, Duchess Kate Middleton, had their third child. So, it makes perfect sense that he would be tired just like anyone would in his situation.

Who Was Your High School Crush?

We can all agree that many of us had at least one crush in high school, right? It turns out that even Kate Middleton, the future Queen Consort, once had one or two crushes. You might even recognize one of the most well-known.

Back when she was still in high school, Kate had a serious crush on Andrew Alexander, popularly known as Sir John Bullock on Downton Abbey. Unfortunately for her, he was dating her friend at the time, and she was too nervous to say anything.

We All Get Stuck

We’ve all been there, haven’t we? Sometimes, wearing high heels isn’t easy. As elegant as these heels are, wearing them when you have to walk on uneven roads or steep paths is risky business. And just like every one of us, the royal family members aren’t immune to this.

The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, is the image of grace and elegance. Her poise is always perfect, and she doesn’t seem like she could put a foot wrong. Except she can. Even she couldn’t escape the clutches of the grate in the road. Thankfully, her royal husband was there.

Every Family Has a Sibling Rivalry

A friendly rivalry among siblings is quite common…and normal. There is no doubt that the likes of Prince Harry, Prince William, and Duchess Kate still have a competitive drive. This picture shows them sprinting toward victory, with each one trying their best to outrun the others.

Although she is a little slower than the men, Kate still manages to appear stunning and has a big smile on her face. Prince William is exerting all his effort but Harry has taken the lead and is enjoying himself.

Prince George Has Better Places to Be

Being born into the Royal Family is a blessing and a curse. On the good side, you grow up with fame and wealth, and there’s the possibility of ascending to the throne in the future. But there are a few drawbacks.

Photo by Mark Cuthbert/UK Press/Getty Images

For example, the royals have to do some pretty boring stuff. The kids haven’t learned how to handle this, but the grownups have. And that’s why you’re likely to find kids making faces when they’re forced to do things, they find boring. George, we feel your pain.

Adorable Play with the Kid

Prince Harry is good with children. Countless times, we’ve seen him charm the kids who visit him with their parents. Harry was watching a volleyball match during the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto. The Prince’s friend’s daughter, Emily Henson, who is 2 years old, sat next to him.

Photo by Chris Jackson/Getty Images

Little Emily suddenly started grabbing Harry’s popcorn while he was focused on the game, unknowing that she was robbing a prince. Harry initially didn’t notice, but when he did, he started messing around with the kid in adorable ways. It’s just so relatable and genuine, really.

Prince Harry Loves a Silly Face

Everywhere you go, you’re bound to find kids making silly faces, especially when they know there are cameras pointed at them. And as the picture indicates, even the royal children love doing it. Prince Harry has always been in the spotlight ever since he was born.

Photo by Tim Graham Photo Library/Getty Images

And it’s not just the kids he can be goofy with. Harry also likes making silly faces at the camera. He may not be doing it often anymore, but here’s an image of him sticking his tongue out as Princess Diana tries to make him behave like a proper prince.

The Queen Sticks Out Her Tongue

Perhaps this is the origin of the Royal family’s long-standing custom of sticking out their tongues! Prince Charles is the future King of England, so he doesn’t goof around. Now, imagine if it were the Queen. As the longest-reigning British Queen in history, Queen Elizabeth takes her responsibilities very seriously.

Source: YouTube

It’s nearly impossible for us to see her looking anything other than noble, so this is a rare exception. The Queen may simply be trying to catch snowflakes on her tongue because it is snowing in the picture. We can relate because we also do it.

That Was a Close Call

Royal Family members are so elegantly poised that you may find yourself thinking they’re perfect. But everyone loses their balance sometimes, even countesses. Prince William and Kate Middleton rode in a carriage at the 2017 Royal Ascot parade alongside Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, and Sophie, the Countess of Wessex.

Source: Imgur

But when Sophie suddenly stood up in the carriage, she lost her balance and was about to fall over. Well, family is always there for you (usually, anyway). Luckily for her, Kate reacted quickly and caught the Countess. The two royal women burst into laughter. This could’ve happened to anyone.

Prince Charles Goes Rock Climbing

Prince Harry is probably the only member of the royal family we regularly see having fun in public. Prince Charles, on the other hand, doesn’t goof around much. Who can blame him? He is the future King of England, and he’s expected to maintain dignified behavior.

Photo by Chris Jackson/Getty Images

But he let loose briefly while on a trip to New Jersey in 2012. Charles saw a climbing wall and just couldn’t resist the challenge. Although he was in a double-breasted suit and brown dress shoes, he successfully made his way through. This is exactly what normal people do.

Princess Charlotte Breaks Down

No matter how well-behaved a child is, everybody who has spent time with them knows that they all throw tantrums or behave inappropriately at some point. It seems like royal children are not exempt from this. This is a picture of Princess Charlotte showing us she’s just a baby, too.

Photo by Chris Jackson/Getty Images

She has won our hearts with her cuteness and boldness. But she’s also caught on camera misbehaving, just like every other young girl in the world. This photo was taken in 2017, on a family vacation, when the Princess broke down on the tarmac.

Prince Harry Loves Kids

We’ve already mentioned that Prince Harry is great with children. He just has a way with the little ones, and we’re sure he’s a great father. This is another picture of him showing how charming he is with kids.

Photo by Dominic Lipinski/PA Images/Getty Images

While visiting Dublin with his wife, Meghan Markle, Harry showed that goofy personality in public as a 4-year-old boy pulled his beard. And instead of being “official,” the Prince played along and was even heard saying, “You might have a beard soon — you never know!”

Living Young and Wild and Free

Prince William and Kate Middleton are always on their best behavior when we see them, whether it’s in pictures or during a live ceremony. They are always dignified, well-groomed, and with a smile. But it wasn’t always like that. In fact, they were quite “normal” in college.

Source: YouTube

William and Kate partied and stayed up late throughout their college years, just like regular people. This picture, taken before they got married, shows just that. They were still young, staying up late, and from the Prince’s eyes, we’re not even sure what’s going on here.

Prince William and Kate Middleton in a Duel

The Royal Family and Harry Potter are perhaps the two most popular things in the United Kingdom. In this picture, those two things came together in an exciting and lighthearted way. This rare photograph is a reminder that even the members of the Royal Family can be regular people.

Photo by Paul Rogers – WPA Pool/Getty Images

During a 2013 visit to Warner Bros. Studios, Kate Middleton and Prince William got out their wands and began dueling. William and Kate were eager to visit the sets since they are huge Harry Potter fans, as were Harry and the others. They even got to meet J.K. Rowling!

Princess Charlotte Is a Normal Kiddo

Children will always be children. It doesn’t matter whether they’re at home or at an important ceremony with their parents. Princess Charlotte is adorable, but like every other kid, she can sometimes be silly and unpredictable. She showed us she’s a normal girl at the Royal Wedding in May 2018.

Photo by Andrew Milligan – WPA/Getty Images

She stuck her tongue out at the photographers while she was in the car and was caught in this photo. It reminded us of her uncle, Prince Harry’s, childhood antics when he stuck out his tongue at photographers. And she did this at his wedding, too! How fitting.

Surprise! Surprise! Prince Harry

Prince Harry has been captured in numerous amusing photos throughout the years. He almost always has a funny or silly picture in these photos. These wonderful pictures of him make it very evident that he has always been a mischievous member of the Royal Family.

Photo by Martin Hunter – Pool/Getty Images

It seems he must have been surprised by an unexpected event while holding a tray of cupcakes in this picture. Despite his expression, he managed to maintain a strong hold on the yummy snacks, so they didn’t fall. Looks like a normal human, right? Yep.

Camilla Makes a Mess of Ice Cream, Too

The Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla, is Prince Charles’ wife. Like all the other members of the Royal Family, she’s usually seen by her husband’s side. Since Prince Charles is England’s future King, the couple is always held in the highest regard, much similar to the Queen.

Photo by POOL – Julian Parker/UK Press/Getty Images

So, we hardly ever see them acting awkwardly in public or unprepared for a photo. Camilla, however, seemed to struggle, like the rest of us, to eat ice cream without making a mess. A photographer caught her when she unintentionally got some vanilla on her nose.

Never Change, Prince Harry

While we’ve seen some pictures of other Royal Family members being silly, we’ll admit that it rarely happens. However, Prince Harry takes the cake for the naughtiest in the family, and you can find countless pictures of him being silly. We can only guess what he’s trying to do here.

Source: Reddit

He seems to be miming riding a motorcycle in this picture, and he may be making the sound with his mouth. That would undoubtedly account for his ridiculous expression. The man standing next to him appears to be enjoying the brief performance.

A Charming Family Picture

The world’s attention was drawn to this candid photo of the Royal Family. In celebration of Prince Charles’ 70th birthday in 2018, the charming family picture was made public. The entire family is caught off-guard. The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, is doubled over in laughter.

Source: Twitter

Prince George is laughing hysterically on his grandfather’s knee, and Duchess Camilla is directing Princess Charlotte to look in the right direction. Kate and newborn Prince Louis are also caught off-guard. The image demonstrates that, despite all the publicity, the Royals are actually just regular folks.

Prince Charles Dancing the Mexican Clog

Prince Charles is once again showing a side of his personality that we rarely see in this photo. The Prince of Wales proved that he was prepared to dance when he joined in on a traditional Mexican clog dance in a small village along the coast of Mexico.

Photo by Chris Jackson/Getty Images

The Prince tried to imitate the movements of the men and women dancing around him, twirling a handkerchief over his head. Look at how much enjoyment he seems to be experiencing. From the expression on his face, it’s clear he was having a great time!

Just Two Brothers with a Snake

Besides being brothers, Prince William and Prince Harry were also best friends. This picture from 2010 shows the two Princes on a Royal tour to Botswana when they were given a chance to hold a massive snake around their necks. Like everyone else, they were initially nervous.

Photo by Chris Jackson/Getty Images

But as you can see, they grew into it and started enjoying themselves. They became so comfortable with the large reptile draped around their necks and even started messing around with it. Prince Harry is holding the snake’s head in his brother’s face as he tries to freak him out.

A Close Call on the Cricket Pitch

Kate Middleton and Prince William like being active and in shape, as is evidenced by the numerous photos of them participating in sports and many other outdoor activities together. But in 2014, Kate decided to play a cricket match in high heels. Yikes.

Photo by Martin Hunter/Getty Images

Kate has a repertoire of amusing expressions in addition to her usual grace and composure. Kate acted just like any of us would have when one of Will’s pitches came a bit too close for comfort, stooping out of the way and wincing to avoid getting hit.

Playful Gesture with the Mascot

Besides attending games to enjoy the matches, Prince Harry also loves participating in sports, just like Prince William and Kate Middleton do. He competed in a barefoot touch rugby match with a group of young athletes while he was in South Africa in 2015.

Photo by Chris Radburn – Pool/Getty Images

Although his team lost, Harry appeared to enjoy himself despite the defeat in this picture. He was laughing and playing with the children, and he even stuck his head into the jaws of the shark mascot, amusing onlookers and taking pictures of his ridiculous action.

The Royal Family and Sticking Out Tongues

Is it just us, or is there something with the Royal Family members and sticking out their tongues? There are quite a handful of pictures of almost every member with their tongues out. This picture was taken in 2015 during the annual Trooping the Color parade from a window.

Photo by Chris Jackson/Getty Images

He was having so much fun celebrating his great-grandmother’s birthday that he put his tongue out in delight. The sweet moment was captured on camera. Even though there was a lot going on during the procession, this picture will stick with you the most.

Teaching the Family to Do the Wave

Princes William and Harry engaged in all kinds of mischief when they were younger. We don’t see that much anymore, especially from Prince William, due to responsibilities. But in the past, despite being members of the Royal Family by birth, they often behaved like other boys.

Source: YouTube

Harry appears to have decided to show the rest of the family how to do the wave in this picture. We’ve all done this at sporting events, but it’s rare to catch the Royals making jokes in front of people. They really appear to be enjoying themselves!

The Future King of England

In 2017, Prince William and Kate Middleton cheered on the runners from the sidelines of the London Marathon. William was suddenly splashed with water, which forced him to make a less-than-royal expression. This picture doesn’t show who splashed the water.

Photo by Max Mumby/Indigo/Getty Images

Who would have the guts to do such a thing? Who else? A video that later surfaced online appeared to prove that it was his younger brother. Prince Harry approached William from behind and squirted water all over his face from his water bottle.

Prince Charles or James Bond?

Prince Charles is the one driving that Aston Martin. In case you didn’t know, James Bond’s preferred vehicle is an Aston Martin. Prince Charles may have gotten away with playing the infamous secret agent when he was younger, but he may not have made it out of superspy school.

Source: Reddit

Charles, a well-known environmentalist, informed the engineers at Aston Martin that he wouldn’t drive their car until it was environmentally friendly. So, to please the Prince, they changed it so that it could run on white wine. We’re not even kidding. This is a true story.

Ice Cream on Prince George’s Face

Horse racing is the Royal Family’s favorite pastime, as we’ve seen from many pictures. The fact that the young child whose face Kate Middleton was wiping would one day rule England was not given any consideration in this photo, which was taken at the Houghton International Horse Trials.

Source: ABC News

It appears Prince George had just finished eating something, maybe ice cream, and had made a mess. Like the great mother she is, Kate wiped any remaining chocolate from his chin. Whether it’s in the big moments or candid times like this, you can still sense the love.

Duchess Kate’s Surprise Face

Duchess Kate is the embodiment of a prim and proper English noblewoman. She’s always so dignified and elegantly poised. And that’s why seeing her make silly faces is out of character but hilarious. In this picture, Kate was photographed in 2013 visiting the Natural History Museum in London.

Source: YouTube

She made a face that really screams surprise and shock while watching a nature documentary by director David Attenborough. Why? Your guess is as good as ours. It was a documentary, so it looks like the person seated next to her wasn’t giving any spoilers.

Imitating the Soldiers or Mr. Roboto?

Even though he’s just 8, Prince George is already our favorite royal. Okay, maybe we can make a case for Prince Harry. But this picture makes it clear why we love George. It was taken at the wedding of his mother’s friend, Sophie Carter.


As he often does, George just had to steal the show. He was either performing a robot dance or imitating soldiers marching while he stood next to the other pageboys and his sister, Princess Charlotte. We don’t really care which one it was because this is cute!

Ugh! No More, Please!

Although Camilla has a reputation that she can’t help herself around food, it doesn’t seem like the Queen is like that. This picture below looks like the croissants have startled her, and we’re not sure why. Aren’t they supposed to be a staple of the Royal Family diet?

Source: Reddit

Maybe she was full from an earlier meal she had, and the thought of eating anything more just put her off. In that case, we’ve all been there before, haven’t we? As much as you may want to continue, the mere sight of food is enough to make you sick.

George is Pictured Blowing Bubbles

We all know children everywhere love bubbles. Kids will always be kids regardless of their status. So, it doesn’t matter if you’re a prince or just a commoner. This means that George would respond the same way any other kid would if they saw a bunch of bubbles.

Photo by Chris Jackson – Pool/Getty Images

And this precious picture is proof of that. Like the character in Finding Nemo who fought to keep all of the bubbles to himself in the fish tank, George seemed equally fascinated by these floating bubbles. We also remember how much we loved making and catching bubbles!

The Royal Family Laughs Out Loud

OK, everyone gather ’round. We all agree that when we type “lol,” we’re not actually laughing out loud every time, right? Or is that just us? Well, it seems like if any of the three Royals in this picture sends that message, it would accurately describe their feelings.

Photo by Andrew Parsons – WPA Pool/Getty Images

This photo is from a tea party the Royal Family hosted at Buckingham Palace in May 2017. We don’t know what they saw, but it must have been pretty funny for the three Royals to burst out laughing like that. Even the Royals can laugh out loud.

Cuddled Up Like Lovebirds

Public show of affection will always be cute to us. We see it all the time on our streets, and it’s adorable. Prince William and Kate Middleton may be the future King and Queen Consort, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t still just regular lovers at heart.

Photo by Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images

Although the Palace may not favor open shows of affection, that doesn’t stop these two from sneaking the occasional hug, cuddle, or kiss. Well, if the Duke and Duchess of Sussex can get away with it, why can’t they?

Fixing the Future King’s Hair

When we were kids, we’ve all likely heard from a family member that our hair needs to be smoothed out since it is unkempt. They always feel the need to style our hair while we’re in public, whether it’s an aunt, grandma, or even our mother.

Photo by Samir Hussein/Samir Hussein/WireImage/Getty Images

Prince George appears to be a very cheerful and playful boy and must have been playing when he messed up his blond hair. Thank goodness mom was close by to quietly and quickly fix everything. After all, the future King cannot be seen wandering around with untidy hair.

Just a Quick Selfie

Gone are the days when you must stand in front of a camera and let someone take your picture. Nowadays, selfies are perhaps the most popular type of pictures that people take. We don’t think Prince William will become the next selfie master like the Kardashians.

Source: Twitter

But he still enjoys taking a quick selfie. Wonderful gentleman that he is, William paused for a picture with a fan despite the throng at this event. We get the feeling this lady will cherish that picture for a long time.

Growing Up on Set

Parents sometimes bring their children to work with them. Maybe they couldn’t get daycare and were forced to work on the weekends, or their child was ill and had to miss school. Whatever the reason, even those working in the entertainment sector occasionally need to bring their children with them.

Source: Tumblr

Ed O’Neill recently stated that Meghan literally grew up on the Married… with Children set because her father worked there. When she was younger, she visited the filming location every day after school while wearing the uniform of her Catholic school and hung out while her father worked.

Another Tongue-Out Picture from a Royal

Here’s another picture of a Royal Family member sticking out their tongue. This time, it’s Princess Charlotte being adorable again. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a commoner or a part of the Royal Family; kids will always be kids. This picture was taken at The King’s Cup regatta.

Photo by Chris Jackson/Getty Images

The Princess was with her mom, Kate, who asked Charlotte to wave at the fans. But the Princess had other ideas. Instead of being courteous to the onlookers, she stuck out her tongue at them! We’re sure they’ll take any reaction from a Royal. Even this.

Kate’s Fits of Laughter

The reaction could’ve caused her mom to be embarrassed. So, how did Kate react to Charlotte’s action? She burst out laughing. It was a genuine response of joy that it was almost impossible to not join her laughing. Even though she’s always looking refined, Kate is still down to earth.

Photo by Samir Hussein/WireImage/Getty Images

From the pictures we’ve seen, it looks like she’s also a hands-on mother, which is something that hasn’t been common in the Royal Family. Before Princess Diana, there was a gap between parents and their kids. We’re happy that space has been bridged now.

Meghan Showing Her Appreciation

Have you ever received a gift you’ve always wanted? It’s hard to control your emotions. You can’t decide whether to laugh, cry, or shout because of how appreciative you are of it. And it looks like Duchess Meghan Markle is just like that, too.

Photo by Peter Nicholls – WPA Pool/Getty Images

Even if Meghan may not have always wanted to get her child a Yankees jersey, she still reacted with the same passion. The Duchess seemed ecstatic with the gift, demonstrating that even when you’re wealthy and well-known, you can still be grateful. This is another reason why we love Meghan.

No Time to Waste

Most people love ice cream, but nothing compared to Camilla. At least, that’s the impression we get from the pictures we see. Not only does she make a mess like the rest of us, but she also can’t wait to dig into it.

Photo by Chris Jackson – Pool/Getty Images

While her husband, Prince Charles, was still speaking with the cashier, her face was already in the dairy delight as she walked away. We don’t blame her. Who could have ice cream in their hands and wait until all the frozen goodness melts away?

Getting Ready for the Game

Even though William spends much of his time giving speeches and behaving like a future king, he is also occasionally caught having fun. That includes participating in polo, a sport many Royal Family members like. In fact, the Duke has played polo regularly for many years.

Photo by Max Mumby/Indigo/Getty Images

And it appears that he prepares like this before games to get ready. Well, just because the game is played on horses doesn’t mean his body doesn’t need to get warmed up before the show starts. Besides, who doesn’t love stretching with a little bit of yoga?

Dancing Up a Storm in Jamaica

Prince William is not the only Royal Family member who loves being active. His brother, Harry, is the same as this 2012 picture of him dancing up a storm in Jamaica suggests. The Duke didn’t mind that he wore suede shoes and was really getting into the groove.

Photo by John Stillwell/PA Images/Getty Images

It looks like the locals enjoyed it, too! Harry probably thought he was going out for a night on the town. But that doesn’t matter; it’s just wonderful to watch him having a good time. This was about a decade ago. We wonder what his dance moves look like today.

A Mother-Son Bonding Moment

The oldest members of the Royal Family are often seen to have greater solemnity and seriousness than their younger relatives. The stiff upper lip does not, however, always remain intact just because they have been a part of the monarchy for a period of time.

Photo by Indigo/Getty Images

Even when they’re in public, the Queen and Prince Charles enjoy a good joke just as much as everyone else. Here, in a beautiful illustration of mother-son bonding, neither can keep their emotions in check. You seem to never be too old to enjoy time with your mother.

Being on the Losing Side

How does it feel when the person you’re supporting loses? Not great. Whether it’s a TV show or a sports game, no one likes to be on the losing side. And it appears even William and Kate are familiar with that frustrating feeling, judging by their reactions here.

Photo by Karwai Tang/WireImage/Getty Images

The Duke is seen putting his head in his palms as the Duchess cries out. Their responses to a defeat are something we all can relate to. Even though it was only a tennis match, it felt like it was the most important game in history to them.

Some Royal Family Members Win

While William and Kate backed the losing side, Beatrice and Eugenie looked like they chose the winning team. When the Queen’s horse won the Gold Cup at Ascot in 2013, the sisters celebrated joyfully. For a moment, it didn’t matter if they were expected to appear noble and solemn.

Photo by Max Mumby/Indigo/Getty Images

The sisters are visibly delighted by their grandmother’s victory, and Beatrice appears to be jumping for joy. Who hasn’t reacted this way after watching a sports event where their favorite won? It’s natural to react this way, and it seems like even Royal blood does this, too.

Stunned By the Eagle

Being a member of the Royal Family means you’re mandated to attend several events, regardless of whether you’re a fan. It’s a responsibility. A few years ago, Charles and Camilla were lucky to attend the Sandringham Flower Show, and they had quite the experience.

Photo by Max Mumby/Indigo/Getty Images

The couple spent time with some eagles while they were there, one of which seemed to take them off-guard. These two obviously weren’t ready when the bird abruptly took flight, and the photographer captured that moment perfectly. Yes, they’re normal humans who get surprised, too.

When Prince Harry Met Usain Bolt

Almost everyone has a role model they aspire to emulate. These idols could come in the form of politicians, opinion leaders, actors, or even reality TV personalities. It seems Prince Harry is a big fan of Usain Bolt, based on their meeting in Jamaica in 2012.

Photo by Chris Jackson/Getty Images

That is why he is imitating the man’s well-known position, as so many others have done before him. That’s one way to try to emulate the man’s success. You’ll no doubt agree with us that Harry will need to do more than this to break Bolt’s amazing 100m and 200m world records.

Dukes and Duchesses Can be Goofy, Too

It must be exhausting to constantly have to behave like a member of the Royal Family, considering how often they are in the public eye. These people should sometimes be allowed to let loose even though they come from a family of class and elegance.

Photo by Chris Jackson/Getty Images

Fortunately, the younger monarchs are quite good at balancing work and play. The dukes and duchesses have given their duties their all, but they have also never shied away from being silly. Harry and Kate were doing just that at the London Marathon a few years back.

Prince Harry Spitting Out Water

In the same way that kids will be kids, boys will also be boys. Even though he’s now a family man, Prince Harry wasn’t always like that. The man had a reputation as a party animal when he was younger and was also a bit of a rebel.

Photo by Chris Jackson/Getty Images

Although his pranks caused some controversy, most people forgave him because you just can’t stay mad at Harry for too long. In addition, a lot of his actions were simply boys being boys and nothing to get too worked up over. Here’s a prime example: his cheeky spit-take.

Playing the Forehead Detective

When you’re a royal trying to pass the time, what do you do? You could go to sporting events or play party games. William decided to engage the young people there by acting a little like a forehead detective while visiting a homeless charity.

Photo by Eddie Mulholland – WPA Pool/Getty Images

It’s the original version of Ellen DeGeneres’ well-known Heads Up! game, in which participants must identify the person, real or imagined, whose name is written on their forehead. We’re not sure if William was any good at the game, but he was definitely getting into the spirit of things.

Prince George Plotting His Escape

From the pictures we’ve seen, Prince George doesn’t seem to be a big fan of the royal ceremonies. It looks like he has tried to escape the boring royal events for longer than we thought. You can see the yearning to leave in this picture.

Photo by Chris Jackson/Getty Images

He was trying to escape after a long flight. He is pushing away from his mother and appears to be making plans for his escape while looking to the side. Perhaps the boy is scared of the idea of becoming King and wants to leave before it’s too late.

It Was Just One Bite

If you’ve ever been caught sneaking food behind someone’s back, raise your hand. That’s a lot of hands from our end. So, you’re not alone, and neither is Camilla. Even members of the Royal Family do this, but trying it on live TV probably wasn’t a good idea.

Photo by Geoff Pugh – WPA Pool/Getty Images

The clicking cameras got her. The Duchess was seen enjoying some delicious delicacies while her husband was engaged in conversation. Of course, even if they weren’t filming, she couldn’t have gotten away with it. She still had one of the show’s hosts watching her every move.

Take a Look at This Meme, Dad

We really want to know what was on the phone screen here. Whatever it is, it obviously got the dukes excited, but obviously not their father. Prince Charles looks a bit confused, so it’s either that William took an unflattering photo of him, or it was a meme he didn’t understand.

Photo by Chris Jackson/Getty Images

We have a feeling it’s the second one, but we can’t be sure. There are many possible things that could be on the screen. Unfortunately, we’ll never know. Perhaps Charles just can’t understand his son’s cell phone. After all, it’s not like he was raised with the device.
