As we all know, The British Royal family isn’t your everyday blood clan, well, they’re ROYALS for a start… and not only that, they have a TON of strict rules that they have to follow!
We all have spats with our family without worrying too much about who is onlooking, but they can’t be seen to be arguing in public, in fact, they can’t be seen to be behaving badly in any way, they’re being watched all the time, and not just by the British press and public eye!
For the younger members of the monarchy are always under the stern, watchful eye of their elders, making sure that royal protocol and respect for the British public is adhered to at all times!
Sheesh! I bet they even have to be careful how they hold their teacup! (I just Googled it, they actually DO! I was joking for crying out loud!)
So, I think you’ll agree that’s a lot of pressure to be putting on one mere mortal (they are only human after all!)
& As the following 20 candid camera moments prove, sometimes, they do have to let off steam, let their guard down and just be ‘normal’, even if it’s just for a little while.
1. Brothers in Arms
Princes’ William & Harry have been through a lot in their lives, as already mentioned, they may be Royals, but they’re still human and losing your Mom is never an easy time, in fact, it’s unbearable, and especially when it happened to them so young and in such horrible, tragic circumstances.
So it’s nice to see that they’ve stayed close, supported each other through it all and can still have a laugh like true brothers every now and again!
2. Students will be students…
Well, it’s refreshing to see that even Kate and Wills went through the drunken debauchery days at University. Let’s face it, what’s the point of going to Uni if you’re not going to fall out of a taxi at some random person’s house at 3 am with someone else’s puke in your hair!? None at all!
3. Go on, my son!
With strict rules about showing any kind of emotion when in the public eye and always having to be seen as respectful and dignified, it’s nice to see that they can still get caught off guard sometimes. This is the pic of Wills that he would end up being tagged in on Facebook!
4. Just like any other little Prince
Prince Harry has always had something of a rebellious and mischievous streak in him & this photo of the young Prince taking a peek up his father’s kilt is absolutely hilarious and adorable!
& I can understand it, the curiosity about what a man keeps under his kilt, gets the better of all of us sometimes!
5. Far too silly!
This photo of a beautiful bride on her wedding day, being surprised by a special guest is just beautiful. It could be just like any other wedding picture, a royal bride is still a bride, and she still has all the emotions of the day to deal with, as well as getting married in front of millions!
7. A Mother’s Love
8. Leave Em’ Laughing
9. Riding The Imaginary Bicycle
10. Just like any other married couple!
11. Cute Kate
12. Following in the footsteps…

16. BANG BANG!
17. Another Fine (Royal) Mess!
18. Princess down!
20. The Rebel Princess
She may be giving us ‘that certain finger’ here, but she even makes that look beautiful and timeless. She may have been taken from us too soon in tragic circumstances, but she’ll always be William and Harry’s Mother, and the people’s princess with that rebel streak in her heart!
I’m sure she will always be missed, both by her family and people from all the around. Rest In Peace.
