Some Family Joins In On The Fun
On a spring day in 2017, Princes William and Harry, along with Kate, hosted a tea party on the grounds of Buckingham Palace. The tea party was in honor of the children who risked their lives serving in the armed forces.

Every year the entire British royal family gathers to watch the Trooping the Colour celebration. It’s the Queen’s annual birthday parade and is believed to have been performed since the reign of King Charles II.
Prince William and Kate’s youngest child, Prince Louis, couldn’t get enough of the parade in 2019. His reaction to seeing the guardsmen, cavalry, and more got huge laughs from his parents. His older siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, were just as focused on the parade as well.

The Royals Enjoy A Day At The Paralympic Games
During the summer of 2012, Prince William and Kate spent some time enjoying the London Paralympic Games at the Velodrome. The two clearly were chuckling over a hilarious joke and couldn’t have looked more comfortable with each other.

The Happiest Day Of Their Lives
April 29, 2011, will always be a day to remember; not only for Prince William and Kate, but for the entire world. The two said their “I dos” in front of almost two thousand guests, thousands of onlookers, and over 23 million people watching on television.

Kate Was Nervous To Meet This Royal
Prince William must have noticed something funny at the London Wall in 2016 and pointed it out to Kate. The two were visiting as part of a mentoring program to support youth with certain emotional and behavioral challenges.
As a royal, Kate has to meet new people almost every day, but the one person she was most nervous to meet was Prince Charles. “…he was very, very welcoming, very friendly, so yea, it couldn’t have gone easier for me,” she told ABC News.

Don’t Have A Cow
The cows peeking out from the Teagasc Animal & Grassland Research Centre in Ireland caught the attention of the royal couple. Prince William and Kate traveled there in March of 2020 at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

Kate has to follow strict rules at all times, even when she’s abroad. Fans may come up and ask for her autograph, but she’s forbidden to give it. This is because someone could use her signature to falsify important documents on behalf of the royal family.
A Funny Arcade Game Challenge
Prince William and Kate are usually up for some good old fun. On August 5, 2020 the pair visited Barry, Wales to play some arcade games at Island Leisure Amusement Arcade.

Even though they were playing arcade games, both members of the royal family have to abide by a dress code. These rules can include natural nail polish, brightly-colored dresses, and sheer pantyhose.
Taking In The Harry Potter Magic
That isn’t Harry Potter standing to the side of the Duke and Duchess, rather it’s Prince Harry. The three of them got to spend a day having fun at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden on April 26, 2013.

A Hilarious Boat Ride In Germany
On July 20, 2017, Prince William and Kate enjoyed a leisurely rowing regatta boat ride during a visit to Heidelberg, Germany. They are seen in matching gold medals surrounded by a crowd of supporters.
Followers of Kate may notice that she usually has a giant smile on her face. This is because royals are told to hide any pain and to stay positive when they’re in the public eye. Even if they’re under the weather, they must muster through the pain.
Overjoyed With A New Addition To The Family
This photo is the first moment when Prince William and Kate introduced Prince George to the public. He was born on July 22, 2013, and is currently third in the line of succession to the British throne.

A Warm Welcome In Tuvalu
Prince William and Kate were sharing a laugh with some locals in Tuvalu on September 18, 2012. They drank the coconut milk out of the coconut she is holding. The coconut came from a tree that Queen Elizabeth II planted there in 1982.
This trip was during their Diamond Jubilee tour where they represented the Queen by going to Singapore, Malaysia, the Solomon Islands, and Tuvalu. The Duke and Duchess took part in Tuvalu’s culture by adorning some handmade flower headpieces.
Learning Some World War I History
Prince William must have found it kind of silly that he got the chance to sit in a real World War I biplane. The couple were visiting the Omaka Aviation Heritage Center on April 10, 2014, in New Zealand.
The Royal Tour to New Zealand was the very first royal trip for Prince George and the royal family visited many of the same places Prince Charles and Princess Diana took Prince William as a baby.
Having A Good Conversation In Charlottetown
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stayed professional during a visit to the Province House in Charlottetown, Canada on July 4, 2011. Prince William and Kate take many trips, but are expected to do some research beforehand.

Meeting A Popular British Movie Star
It was a night to remember when Prince William and Kate ran into a famous friend. They are seen shaking hands with the one and only Paddington Bear in London on October 16, 2017.

Getting In Some Theatre In Dundee
The Duke and Duchess got in some laughs while enjoying the theatre in Dundee, Scotland on October 23, 2015. Some fans of Kate may wonder how she gets her hair and outfits to look perfect for every appearance.
Since royals are expected to look elegant at all times, they must follow rules such as keeping their nails clean and getting their hair done regularly. Some British sources claim that Kate visits the beauty salon around three times per week.
Twisting Up Some Pretzels
Onlookers in Heidelberg, Germany were enthused by Prince William and Kate as they tried their hand at making pretzels. They were guided by Mayor Eckart Wuerzner.
Kate seemed to know what she was doing and Prince William was rather impressed by how her pretzels turned out. If she wanted to become a professional pretzel maker, she wouldn’t be able to make any money. This is because members of the royal family aren’t allowed to earn a profit from their work.
The Family Attends A Pantomime Performance
During the holiday season of 2020, Prince William and Kate took their three children, Prince George (7), Princess Charlotte (5), and Prince Louis (2), to a special pantomime performance at London’s Palladium Theatre.

As a member of the royal family, Kate is expected to keep her children well behaved at all times. Even though they are all young kids, there hasn’t been any proof of them misbehaving.
