Shocking footage has shown Her majesty lashing out at the Duke of Cambridge, William during a public appearance at Buckingham Palace. 

Queen Elizabeth II was seen demanding her grandson, Prince William to ‘stand up’ as he spoke lovingly to his son, Prince George.

In the footage, the Duke of Cambridge, William quickly obliges and gets up. He can be clearly seen following the angry instructions being barked at him by his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth. According to Pratishtha Mahajan, the incident happened in the year 2016 during the Queen’s birthday celebrations.

With thousands watching on, Her Majesty made the snappy remarks. The second in line to the throne had been chatting to his first born, Prince George. The video, which has been shared across Twitter and Instagram, was posted by The Royal UK.

The British royals are sometimes known to lose their temper just like everyone does. Last year, royal commentator and editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine, Ingrid Seward said that Queen Elizabeth’s fiesta temp revealed the ‘reality of the relationship between her and her husband’.

Writing in her royal biography, Ms Seward said:-

“The stories told by those close to the Queen might not reveal a great deal about her. However, they do say something about the reality of the relationship between her and her husband. On one occasion, for instance, they were picnicking at Balmoral and for some reason or other, Prince Philip was late”.

“And there was a huge row as she let rip at him, saying: ‘This is ridiculous. Where on earth have you been? Why were you doing that'”?

In another documentary released in 2014: ‘The Majestic Life of Queen Elizabeth II’, journalist John Mizzi claimed that “officially Her Majesty was the boss. But, when it came to their private life, it was Philip who actually ran the show”.

Mr. John Mizzi said of the Duke of Edinburgh, Philip:-

“He seemed to boss her around most of the time. I shouldn’t really say this. But, there was this one time, that I heard him swearing at Her Majesty The Queen”. 

Not only this, even the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate have had moment when she lost it. It was during her sister, Pippa Middleton’s wedding in 2017. She reportedly had some stern words with her son, Prince George because he was playing with his auntie’s wedding dress.
