Prince William is never too old to get a tell off from her grandmother Queen Elizabeth II—not even if he’s second in line to the throne.

The British Royal Family made their much-awaited appearance on the balcony of Buckingham Palace when Prince William bent to chat Prince George. However, Queen Elizabeth II was not amused, aware that thousands people were keeping their eyes on  them, so she told her grandson to stand up.

The 90-year-old monarch tapped the Duke of Cambridge. Her gesture looked like she’s telling him to stand.


William immediately followed her grandmother as he rose to his feet, looking rather sheepish.
Prince Harry, who was standing behind his brother, seemed to have chuckled and corrected his posture before the Queen laid her eyes on him.

Thousands of people headed to the streets of London to celebrate with the Queen on her official birthday celebrations.

This is the also the firs that Princess Charlotte would appear on the balcony of Buckingham Palace to observe the flypast of the Royal Air Force.


The Queen and the Royal Family attended this Trooping the Colour ceremony at Horse Guards Parade where 1,400 soldiers, 200 horses and more than 400 musicians joined in.

A Day in the Life of The Queen: How Queen Elizabeth II Spends Her Day

Queen Elizabeth II is a stickler for order, and so routine is a part of Her Majesty’s day-to-day life.
