Sometimes, it feels as though the Royal Family are in a league of their own. After all, they live in palaces and are some of the most recognized faces on the planet. Could life really get much better for the family?
It looks as though they can do no wrong. However, with all that power comes a lot of responsibility – and plenty of people watching their every move. It seems as though the Royal Family might not be as innocent as many of us believed thanks to their embarrassing moment caught on camera over the years.
Caught on camera
The British Royal Family have been around for many years, but now it seems they’re becoming bigger and better than ever. Why? They have recently seen many new additions, and now it looks as though the next generation want to step up more than ever as they prepare to lead the royals in a whole new direction.
Although they’re often spotted embodying everything graceful and refined, it looks as though they’ve also proved that they’re human too. That’s right – their embarrassing moments have been captured for the world to see, and remember, for the rest of time.
A royal introduction
Kate and William have grown to become one of the most loved couples in the Royal Family, but it turns out that their meeting was anything less than smooth. That’s right; Kate remembers the moment that she made a royal mess up when she first met her husband. The pair both went to the same university. However, William didn’t join the class until a little later after everyone else.
Although William had a tough time remembering their first encounter, Kate apparently remembers it clearly. The Duchess confesses that she curtsied at William before he spilled a drink all over himself and she ran away embarrassed. Thankfully, the couple soon put it behind them and have been dating since 2003. Now, as well as preparing to become the next leaders of the nation, they are also two of the world’s favorite members of the Royal Family.
The wrong outfits
Heading on royal tours of the world is something that comes with part of being a member of the family. However, it looks as though not every move is the right one – especially when it comes to choosing the right outfits for dinner. Kate and William were visiting the Solomon Islands as part of their tour of Asia back in 2012. It looked as though the couple had gone all out to make an effort for their time with the nation, and dressed in traditional clothing.
At least, that’s what they thought. It turned out the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were actually wearing clothes from the Cook Islands instead. Apparently, officials noticed the gifted clothes weren’t the same as everyone else’s but were assured they were the right garments. Sadly, the couple later learned they were wearing the wrong outfits after all. Thankfully, no one was offended.
Being a Royal means there is a long list of rules to follow when it comes to getting a wardrobe in order. Not wearing bright nail polish, always making sure to wear tights, and avoiding wedge shoes at all cost are just some of the many rules that royal women have to follow, but it looks as though Kate forgot one very important one: don’t impersonate Marilyn Monroe. The Duchess’ dress sense has seen many clothing lines sell out over the years.
However, it looks as though people might think twice before buying some of her dresses – especially after the many wardrobe oops moments Kate has endured over the years. It appears the wind isn’t her friend as Kate’s dresses seem to have a mind of their own when she’s out and about. Thankfully, it looks like Kate has since changed up her wardrobe to avoid any more embarrassments.
A trip to rehab
Believe it or not, but the Royal Family might not be as squeaky clean as we once thought. Prince Harry has been through a lot in his life, including his parents’ public divorce and the passing of his mother, Princess Diana. Although it looked as though Harry had found a way to cope with it all, it wasn’t always up to the standards of the rest of the family. The young Royal soon turned to illegal substances and drinking which earned him a one-way ticket to rehab.
Prince Charles wanted to help his son, so enrolled Harry in the Featherstone Lodge Rehabilitation Center back in 2002. Royal officials announced that Charles hoped to educate his son about the dangers of his choices, and thankfully, it looks as though Harry learned his lessons from his past. That or he’s really good at keeping secrets from the media.
Selling the prince
Sarah Ferguson was once married to Prince Andrew, Duke of York, but the relationship sadly ended in divorce. Sarah has since spent many years involved with the Royals thanks to her daughters, Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice.
Unfortunately, money troubles saw Sarah looking for a way to make a quick buck. A video emerged of Sarah haggling with an undercover journalist as she tried to secure over $700,000 for access to Andrew. Sarah has since admitted she regrets the situation and “the embarrassment caused.”
In the buff
Harry was once the partier of the family, and it looked as though this Prince knew how to enjoy himself. He booked a trip to Las Vegas with many of his friends, but it wasn’t long before his antics made their way to the rest of the world.
It’s believed Harry was playing a game of billiards in his suite. However, the rules involved taking off his clothes, and the Prince was soon snapped in his birthday suit. Although the Royal Family urged the media to hide the photos, they soon made their way around the world.
The Royals are often seen working hard. However, there’s no fun in all work and no play, right? Thankfully, many members of the family find a little time to relax and unwind every now and then. Sadly, Kate was about to learn the paps always know their movements.
The Duchess was enjoying her time in France when a member of the paparazzi snapped a photo of a sunbathing Kate. The catch? She wasn’t wearing a top. The picture spread across the Swedish tabloids, but the photographer and publication were later punished.
A wardrobe malfunction
Meghan Markle’s wardrobe has come under question many times throughout her time as part of the Royal Family. However, there was one dress that was about to cause quite the commotion. Meghan was at a wedding in 2018 when she suffered a wardrobe malfunction.
It looked as though the top button of the Duchess’ dress had come undone, revealing her lace underwear underneath. Of course, the paps were there to capture the moment, and it soon became something Meghan would grow to regret.
It looks as though Kate Middleton hasn’t always had the best of luck with her wardrobe. In fact, the Duchess was about to find herself stuck when attending the St. Patrick’s Day parade in 2013. Drain: one. Kate: zero.
The Duchess’ heel got caught in the drain, but thankfully, William soon rushed to her side to help his wife get back to her feet. All it took was a little wiggle and a laugh from Kate to try and make the situation go away. Sadly, photos last a lifetime.
Cheating on exams
The Royals often attend some of the best schools across the nation. Like many members of the family, Harry was enrolled at Eton where it looked as though the Prince was about to brush shoulders with the best of the best.
Sadly, it seemed as though Harry is just like the rest of us and needed a little help to get the grades. It’s said a teacher wrote an entire art paper for the Prince so Harry could pass his exam, but eventually lost her job as a result.
Being part of the Royal Family isn’t always a walk in the park, especially as there are so many rules and regulations to learn along the way. Although Meghan looked as though she was settling into her new life, the Duchess soon forgot the family’s protocol.
A security guard ushered for Meghan to get into the car, only for the Duchess to stumble and ask the Queen what to do. It turned out that the Queen always likes to sit behind the driver, and Meghan should have followed directions. Oops.
The laughing fit
It was back in March 2018 that Meghan Markle hit the headlines. Sure, she was yet to walk down the aisle, but it looked as though the world couldn’t get enough of the future Duchess. Perhaps that’s how people caught the laughing fit?
That’s right; Meghan was attending the Commonwealth Day Service when she shared a look with Harry. That was apparently enough to send Meghan into a fit of giggles. The Duchess tried to hide her laughter, but the cameras were there to see it all.
Too close for comfort
Kate and William appear to be one of the strongest couples on the planet. They are always by one another’s side and seem to be ready to fight off any rumors that fly their way. That was until 2017.
Prince William was on a men-only ski trip when an unusual video emerged of the Prince. It looked as though he was dancing away and getting a little too close to an unnamed woman. It’s said that Kate was “less than pleased” to see the footage.
A royal scuffle
Harry was once the bad boy of the Royals. In fact, it looked as though this bachelor was going to enjoy his party lifestyle and freedom for the rest of his life until he met and fell for Meghan. 2004 marked another night on the town.
The Prince had been partying at a nightclub, and the paps were keen to snap a shot of him leaving. Sadly, Harry didn’t feel the same way. In fact, a photographer was left with a cut lip after Harry reportedly pushed them away after he was hit in the face with the camera.
Too much to handle
Welcoming a new baby can be tough for many of us. So what about when you welcome the third newborn to the family? It looked as though it was too much to handle for William. That is if his trip to the Anzac memorial services was anything to go by.
William arrived at the events just days after welcoming Prince Louis to the world, but it appeared the Prince was struggling to keep his eyes open throughout the game as his head suspiciously slumped during the service.
Gushing for her crush
The Queen has met thousands of people during her time on the throne. However, it looks as though she has a few favorites of her own. Soccer player David Beckham has got to meet the Royal more than once over the years.
His chance arrived once again in 2018 as David turned up at the Young Leaders Programme. It appeared the Queen was more than happy to shake hands with this sports star and couldn’t hide her excitement to meet David once again.
An award mixup
Does anyone remember the 2017 Oscar mixup? Of course, the event will forever go down in the history of the awards show. However, it looks as though there could be another blunder to add to the list thanks to Meghan Markle and her co-host.
The pair were presenting an award at the Endeavour Fund ceremony when it appeared someone had mixed up the notes. Meghan’s co-host apparently had different notes, and Meghan was forced to think on the spot and share hers instead.
That phone call
Prince Charles and Princess Diana once looked as though they were going to be the next rulers of the nation. That was until their relationship took a dive and ended in divorce. That’s not all.
It looked as though the world was about to learn the ins and outs of his relationship with Camilla. A recording soon emerged of Charles talking with Camilla on the phone in 1989 – when the Prince was still married. Camillagate soon rocked the world and the rest of the Royal Family.
The wrong vows
It looks as though marriage between Charles and Diana might have been off to a bumpy start after all. The Royals were waiting at the altar when their vows didn’t go to plan. It all started with Charles and his turn.
The Prince promised “thy goods” rather than “worldly goods,” but this was only the beginning. Diana later for Charles’ name wrong by calling him Philip Charles Arthur George” rather than his name, “Charles Philip.” Perhaps not the best start to married life?
The unfortunate mix-up
Although Harry was once the life and soul of the party, it looked as though his ways were about to land him in a host of trouble. The Prince was regularly spotted stumbling out of nightclubs before eventually falling into taxis and heading home.
As if that wasn’t enough, his partying ways also saw Harry sneaking into clubs through the fire escape, jump off a fire escape the night before his brother’s wedding, and have a royal minder to try and keep him out of trouble.
The veil confusion
Meghan and Harry’s wedding took 2018 by storm as millions all around the world lined up to watch this couple tie the knot. It looked as though it was a match laid out in the stars. Sadly, Harry had a hard time finding his blushing bride.
It seemed as though the veil was one step too far for this couple when it came time for Harry to lift the veil. It appeared the Prince needed some help to get to the bottom of all that material – not the start to a marriage everyone needs.
Attack of the bee
Have you ever been in the middle of public speaking and something distracts you so much that you completely lose your train of thought and focus? Well, it happens to everyone and that includes Royals.
Harry was in the middle of a speech when suddenly he paused, swatted his hand and continued. But, it was too late. He was completely caught of guard when a bee flew toward his face. He admitted that the “bee really got him” and apologized for his distraction in the most adorable way.
The scarf debacle
Rumors of a feud within the Royal Family have been flying around rampantly and no matter what, they just can’t seem to be put to rest. Perhaps it’s because there is plenty of fuel for the fire leading people to believe that the claims are true.
Whether the alleged feud is between Harry and Will, Will and Meghan, or Kate and Meghan depends on the day, but here’s our favorite “evidence”. Meghan turns around as if she is trying to speak with Will, and he appears to completely ignore her while he fixes his scarf. We may never know the real store, but this was pretty funny.
A commando situation
While the Royals have to have thick skin to get through all of the press and media rumors that are spread. That being said, they are only human and are also prone to embarrassing moments.
For instance, Prince Phillip was spotted in a traditional kilt and he showed a little bit more than what people were expecting to see. Though it is often customary not to wear under garments underneath kilts, people were surprised to see that Phillip followed this custom in public when there are cameras at all angles.
Side eyed by Kate
Speaking of cameras, they are always on the Royal Family, like always. The members are rarely without a team of paparazzi and photographers surrounding them, and this means that many of their moments are captured for the world to see.
One thing Kate probably wishes didn’t end up on the internet is the time she side-eyed Camilla at Meghan’s wedding. Though no one is really sure if the Duchess of Cambridge was actually showing attitude toward Camilla, it certainly looks like she was.
The death glare
When Meghan was only two months into her time as a Duchess, she attended the Wimbledon tennis tournament with Kate. Some of the most talked about pictures popped up online from this event, and this was probably number one.
It looks like Meghan is giving Kate the death glare as she follows behind her sister-in-law. Some believe she was simply trying to watch and concentrate on Kate’s every move so she can take mental notes and learn as much as she can about being a Duchess.
Princess Margaret’s affairs
Princess Margaret may have been known as the beauty of the family, but she was also known for her many alleged affairs while she was married to her husband, the Earl of Snowdon. After a break-in and robbery, some photos were released to the public that Margaret probably hadn’t wanted published.
They were pictures of her with another man and, well, she wasn’t wearing any clothes. The story later became part of the Jason Statham movie, The Bank Job.
Prince Harry stealing food
While Harry is known for many less funny things, here is a moment that was just so adorable, we can’t be mad at him. When he was at a Royal event for Meghan’s cookbook, he was caught stealing food and his reaction was priceless.
A video surfaced of the Prince walking over to a table and then sneakily heading back over to the crowd. It later becomes clear he is hiding a samosa behind his back. He looks over at the camera and starts laughing, realizing he’d been caught. He was just hungry!
Prince Charles losing his cool
Bald eagles are pretty impressive creatures, and definitely not ones anyone should try to mess with. Apparently, however, Prince Charles made one of these animals a little bit less than pleased.
When he was holding one of the birds, it almost knocked him out as he tried to hand it back to someone else. While we’re pretty sure anyone would react the same, Charles completely lost his cool as he ducked out of the way from the enormous wings.
Caught in the act
Everyone gets a case of the giggles sometimes; it happens to the best of us. After all, we already included an instance of this happening to Meghan Markle. One person who it was less expected from, though, was Prince William.
During an event of the Royal Air Force, the prince let out a little laugh, but he was cut short. Almost as soon as he cracked a smile, his wife, Kate, looked over to catch him in the act and he immediately hushed up.
Prince Phillip is known to have a little outburst here and there, but this one got him plenty of negative attention. We all know paparazzi can be annoying – okay we may not know, but we can assume – but the Royals know this all too well.
Phillip reacted quite poorly on one specific occasion, though. He grew impatient with a photographer and told him to “just take the f***ing picture”. Thankfully, people seemed to laugh it off rather than getting offended.
You’re not coming
Apparently Phillip is not the only Royal who loses his patience with paparazzi. Little Charlotte got sassy with some photographers at her younger brother, Louis’, christening. As they were walking and being followed by cameras, the then three year-old looking the photographer right in the eye and said in the cutest way ever, “you’re not coming.”
While she is probably expected to be polite and respectful to those around her and not act this way, you could see her parents holding back giggles, meaning they thought it was pretty funny.
The awkward greeting
Harry is a friendly guy; most people can sense that. Kisses on the cheek are a customary greeting in the U.K., so he didn’t think twice when greeting a Muslim woman at an event with Meghan and her mom. After all, he saw Daria kiss the woman on the cheeks.
Unfortunately, due to her faith, she is probably not allowed to touch men, so when Harry went in for an embrace, it led to an extremely awkward encounter. Thankfully, they all seemed to laugh it off and move on.
Pretending to choke
Royals are just like everyone else and they are human too. They like to make jokes and have fun, but they have to make sure these jokes are in good taste. Kate tends to be one of the classiest women in the world, but even she likes to be silly sometimes.
At the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, William was adjusting her name tag, and she pretended he was actually choking her. Depending on your sense of humor, this could either be hilarious or just the opposite.
Ice cream troubles
Ice cream is delicious, specifically when it’s a warm day outside. That being said, it can also be a pretty messy treat. Apparently this is something Camilla knows all too well.
She was snapped holding an ice cream cone, but she had almost as much on her face as in the cone. At least she enjoyed the dessert, but we hope she had a napkin nearby and didn’t go to wherever she was heading with ice cream on her chin.
While the Royals have many complicated rules, there is one that is pretty simple – though it may be hard to follow. They are advised to stay away from all types of shellfish and the reason isn’t so complicated. It’s because shellfish is known to be prone to food borne illnesses.
Because the Royals are constantly busy and traveling, they cannot risk being sick, so they try not to eat these foods. That’s probably why William is smirking as he sees his beloved wife, Kate, sneaking an oyster.
Everyone knows that Kate Middleton looks 100% fabulous all the time. That being said, everything has issues with their hair at some point in their lives. While Kate has some of the best looking locks in the world, she decided to experiment with a less than ideal option.
She got bangs. While they looked absolutely adorable on her, the wind had a field day trying to blow her hair all over the place. She might have regretted the cut when she saw these pics.
Stealing the spotlight
Imagine it being your wedding day and you’re the happiest you’ve ever been, only to be caught off guard and realize someone is stealing your spotlight. Well, whether intentionally or not, this is pretty much what Sarah Ferguson did when Kate and Will got married.
The former Royal wasn’t invited to the nuptials, but she still made headlines by talking about how she was so hurt by her lack of invite and how she really wanted to attend with her daughters. Thankfully, most of the attention was still on the couple.
Rolling to the ground
While we’ve already established that Kate is pretty much the definition of class and poise, that doesn’t mean she never has fun and lets loose a little bit. One day when she needs to just go out an have a good time, she went roller skating.
Thank goodness she did so because we are now able to see fantastic photos from the event, just like this one. Hopefully the duchess doesn’t embarrass easily or she may regret this moment – and outfit.
Everyone sneezes. It’s a fact and there is no denying it. Nevertheless, many people believe there is a proper way to sneeze and all other ways are not okay. This way is to sneeze into an elbow so as not to spread germs all over the place.
One of the less sanitary places to sneeze into is hands. Apparently, even though he is supposed to be raised with the utmost manners, Will never learned how to sneeze. Instead, he sneezed right into his hand. We hope he didn’t shake anyone’s hand after!
Apparently it isn’t just Kate who has a sense of humor when it comes to joking around with her husband. Camilla also likes to crack a bit of fun every now and then. The Duchess of Cornwall shook a knife at Prince Charles and allegedly told him to behave.
The friendly threat made everyone laugh, but this photo shows Charles looking quite terrified of his wife. Thankfully it was all in good fun, and no Royals were harmed in the process.
