You might be a royal prince, but that’s not enough to save you from a scolding from your grandmother.
Prince William might be next in line to the throne, but his grandmother Queen Elizabeth is the boss for now at least. Even Prince Harry calls her ‘the boss’, now we know why.
This hilarious moment took place when the royal family was observing the Trooping of Colour Ceremony on the balcony of the Buckingham Palace. Prince William was crouching down beside Prince George talking to him. It was then his grandmother (in a very green suit), asked him to stand up. The Queen is known for the perfect decorum and discipline she upholds wherever she goes. A sheepish William stood up immediately, while his son rounded off the moment with a facepalm.

You all are lucky. There’s even a GIF of the moment which journalist Brandon McGinley shared on Twitter:
