Despite their regal reputation for impeccable style and grace, even the Royal Family is no stranger to the occasional wardrobe malfunction or slip up. Whether it's the wind causing a dress to fly up or a very public toddler tantrum, the candid moments you are about to see serve as a reminder that the royals, too, are normal people - just like everyone else. Read on for the never-before-seen side of the Royal Family, if you dare!
Queen Consort Camilla's Breezy Wardrobe Malfunction
It was a dazzling day for the royal family as they gathered for Princess Charlotte's christening. Camilla was shining brighter than ever in her beautiful pale blue ensemble. The elegant grandmother was the epitome of grace and poise as she stepped out of her car and made her way to St. Mary Magdalene Church. But, in a moment of unexpected hilarity, a playful gust of wind caught her skirt, causing a near wardrobe malfunction.
But, in true regal fashion, she maintained her composure, showcasing a side of the royal family we don't often get to see, a truly relatable moment.
Princess Beatrice Revealed a Little Too Much
Princess Beatrice made heads turn as she stepped out in a bold and daring statement dress at the Victoria and Albert Museum Summer Party. At first glance, it seemed as if she was going commando, but after a closer look, it revealed a seamless nude slip that blended in perfectly. However, there was a moment when the lining of the dress unexpectedly rode up her legs, revealing the princess's undergarments.
Although this may not seem racy, for someone of royalty, this is quite scandalous. Princess Beatrice demonstrates that even royalty is not immune to clothing mishaps.
The Late Queen's Stained Dress
The Queen has always been the epitome of grace and style, but even royalty is not immune to the occasional fashion mishap. At a birthday party, the Queen was pictured with a noticeable food stain on her dress. According to reports, the monarch is known for being meticulous about her appearance, making this fashion faux pas all the more surprising! These things happen to everyone, and the Queen took it like a champ.
This offers a glimpse into a less polished side of the Queen and brings a new perspective to the serious and always put-together monarch.
Meghan Markle Forgot the Tag on
Meghan Markle has always been known for her impeccable style, but even the most fashionable can forget a step or two. The former actress-turned-Duchess of Sussex was spotted arriving in Tonga in a stunning red dress, complete with a subtle nod to the country's flag. However, the cameras caught a little something extra - a tiny price tag that Meghan had accidentally overlooked. But it does add a touch of relatability to Meghan's otherwise polished look.
Meghan still radiated confidence and beauty in her vibrant outfit, reminding us that fashion mishaps can happen to anyone, even royalty.
Princess Kate Does Not Approve of Mischievous Prince Louis
The former Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, is the epitome of grace and poise, but her latest moments with Prince Louis have shown a different, more relatable side of her. In a photo we can't forget from the Platinum Jubilee Pageant, the two were caught in a familiar scene of a playful little prince making silly faces and a mother trying to keep him in line. Even the prince needs some time to be goofy and act like a kid!
These candid moments of Kate embracing her role as a mother are endearing and a refreshing change from the formal and poised image we often see from royalty.
Kate Middleton Channels Marilyn Monroe
The winds blew high at Princess Eugenie's wedding, causing guests to cling to their hats for dear life. But even the impeccable fashion sense of Kate Middleton couldn't withstand Mother Nature's elements. The Princess of Wales was stunning in a rich fuchsia dress, but a gust of wind caused her skirt to billow up. Middleton's quick reflexes, however, prevented any wardrobe mishap from occurring. Instead, she turned the moment into a playful tribute to Old Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe.
Even amidst the most formal of events, Kate Middleton was able to turn a potentially scandalous moment into something light-hearted and laugh it off!
Prince William's Not-So-Royal Pose
Who knew Prince William had such flexibility? The Duke of Cambridge was spotted getting his zen on with some yoga moves before a charity polo match. Dressed in white jeans, the prince wasn't afraid to strike a pose while being seemingly carefree about his white pants getting dirty from the grass. This candid moment gives us a glimpse into the more relaxed side of the royal family that we don't often see.
This goes to show that the royal family is not afraid to embrace their quirky and playful side, as Prince William demonstrates with his fearless approach to yoga in front of a crowd.
Princess Kate Showed the World She and Her Tummy Can Play Volleyball
Who says royalty can't have fun in the sun? The Princess of Wales proved that she was just like everyone else when she showed off her athletic skills while playing a game of volleyball. But, hold up, what's that? When her shirt flew up, it gave a sneak peek at her impressive abs. Just months after giving birth to Prince George, the Princess was already back in shape and ready to hit the beach.
While protocol may frown upon the royal ladies showing skin, we have to give Kate props for her toned physique and fun, carefree attitude, ready to jump in and play.
Kate Took a Stumble in Heels but Laughed It off
The joys of being pregnant and wearing heels! The Duchess of Cambridge and now Princess proved that she's just like the rest of us when she had a little stumble at a St. Patrick's Day event. Kate's heel got caught in a grate, but she had her prince by her side to help her out. This just goes to show that even royalty can have those awkward moments. Maybe she'll opt for a more practical shoe choice next time!
Another reminder that just because they're royalty doesn't mean they are perfect. They are human and not immune from slip-ups that happen to everyone.
Princess Diana Broke Protocol With This Headband
Princess Diana was never one to follow the rules, and her fashion choices were no exception! During a gala dinner in Australia with Prince Charles in 1985, she took a stunning emerald choker given to her by the Queen and transformed it into a headband. It was reported to cause tension between the two royals when the Queen learned of its new use. However, we think the headband adds a touch of fun and personality to the formal event.
The choker-turned-headband was an example of how Princess Diana wasn't afraid to break the rules and do things that showed she was just an ordinary person like everyone else.
The Wind Did Not Approve of the Queen's Hat That Day
Heavy winds were taking over her majesty at this memorable welcoming event in Oman back in 1979. Despite the constant struggle with her hat being blown off her head, she stood tall and with grace. However, one reason this moment was so memorable and changed the way royalty was viewed was because it showed she was just like everyone else. Even the Royal Family is affected by the weather and has awkward moments.
To see the Queen have a human experience like this, a brief embarrassing moment, makes her feel more personable and relatable.
Meghan Markle's Revealing Dress Was an Oversight
On her 37th birthday, the Duchess of Sussex made a stunning appearance at a wedding with Prince Harry by her side. Wearing a sleek black ensemble, she turned heads as she entered the venue. However, it seems the Duchess may have had a minor fashion mishap when her top became slightly unbuttoned, and the lace of her undergarments peeped through as she waved. This mishap is a nightmare for the royal and super against protocol.
But these types of things happen to everyone, even royalty. This candid moment highlights the human side of the Duchess and proves that being royal doesn't exempt one from experiencing embarrassing moments.
Kate Middleton Is Really Feeling This Game of Cricket
The now Princess of Wales was all about fun and games during a tour of New Zealand and Australia. Kate took on Prince William in a friendly game of cricket, despite being in heels and a stunning red coat and dress. It's almost hard to believe that she could have an athletic and competitive side; she's not only a part of the Royal Family but is open to making a fool of herself.
Who knew royalty could be so down-to-earth? Kate showed the world she's not too posh for a game of cricket and a funny photo!
Her Majesty Experiences a Double Dose of Embarrassment
She may have been the Queen of England, which comes with much power, authority, and responsibility. But at the end of the day, she's a human like anyone else, and this day was definitely not her day! Her purse strap snapped in addition to already having a huge stain on her dress! Even she can't escape the occasional wardrobe mishap and day of bad luck. She even maintained her composure through it all.
This is a moment the Queen probably wished never happened, but on the outside, she looked like a trooper, completely unbothered.
A Windy Day Calls for Another Fashion Faux Pas
The world can't get enough of Kate Middleton's impeccable fashion sense, but even the most stylish individuals are not immune to fashion's biggest enemy: a sudden gust of wind. While arriving in Canada in 2011, Kate's beautiful yellow dress was caught in the wind; not only did cameras catch this on tape, but all the soldiers got a glance too. Not a great situation to be in, but she handled it with grace and poise.
Kate's reaction to the wardrobe malfunction was remarkably composed. She embodied the sentiment that it's perfectly normal to experience awkward moments at times.
The Duchess of Sussex Should Know Better Than This
Meghan Markle had a very small fashion slip-up, but it just goes to show that even the royals are not immune to style mishaps! The "tailor's tack" on her coat was left intact when she wore it out, giving the illusion of a deliberate design. But this subtle mistake only adds to Meghan's relatable charm and shows that even the most poised and polished can have a fashion faux pas from time to time.
It's good to see that even royalty can have a sense of humor about fashion mishaps and not take it so seriously. It's such a simple mistake that could happen to anyone.
Kids Are Kids, Even When They're Royalty
From the moment Princess Charlotte, Savannah Phillips, and Prince George stepped onto the balcony at 2018's Trooping the Colour, it was clear that these three royal cousins were the epitome of cuteness. The trio made funny faces and laughed at each other's silly antics as the cameras captured their every move. Usually, royal children are expected to be on their best behavior and quiet at these kinds of events, so their behavior was quite surprising.
These behind-the-scenes moments remind everyone that even royalty have a fun and light-hearted side, and just because they're kids doesn't mean they can't be silly.
Camilla Can't Resist a Delicious Treat
We've all been in a kitchen when someone was cooking and just couldn't help but steal a bite of the food!

During her visit with the now King of England, to ITV's This Morning, Camilla was caught sneaking in a tasty bite between shots. Such a simple thing yet so relatable.
She looked pretty embarrassed when she realized she was caught, but with those yummy-looking potatoes on the plate, it's no wonder she couldn't resist!
The Royal Ladies Should Really Wear Pants More Often
Kate Middleton faced a common fashion challenge - a gust of wind. This wouldn't be the first time this has happened, and it certainly can't be the last. During a charity event in London, Middleton's skirt threatened to reveal more than she intended. As she bent down to accept flowers from a sweet girl, her skirt flew up. But she's a professional at this, kept her cool, and managed the situation with grace and style.
With one hand holding down her skirt, she continued to chat with the young school girl, and although it was a close call, she didn't freak out.
Princess Diana's Creased Wedding Dress
It's a dress that's made history and will forever be remembered as one of the most iconic wedding gowns of all time. Princess Diana's stunning ivory gown took the world by storm on her special day. But did you know that even with all the planning and preparation, there was one little detail that caused a bit of a stir? The dress designers had forgotten to factor in the carriage ride, and her dress was creased beyond repair.
When Princess Diana was ready to walk the aisle, her dress was utterly wrinkly. No one expected this from the royal family, yet there she was, imperfections and all.
Kate Middleton Handles Princess Charlotte's Royal Tantrum Like a Pro
The royal family's youngest member, Princess Charlotte, was captured on camera having a classic toddler tantrum. While Prince William and Kate Middleton try to keep their children's lives private, the public eye often catches their family moments. Charlotte appears to get frustrated and demonstrates her discontent with a tantrum.

Despite their formal duties and impeccable etiquette, they are just like everyone else and can have the same reactions to a match, a moment, or simply life itself.

Royal life isn't always as poised and proper as it seems. Kate Middleton showed just that on her visit to the India Gate Memorial in 2016.

Whether it's a wardrobe malfunction or a mischievous toddler moment, Kate is a reminder that behind the regal titles, the royal family is just like any other family.
Princess Charlotte Experiences a Moment of Normalcy as a Child
Royalty is expected to act delightful and respectful at all times. So this photo that surfaced of Princess Charlotte sticking her tongue out can definitely be perceived as a misbehaving royal kid.

Not the response you would expect from royalty, but clearly, she just wants her daughter to have some fun.
Many found Kate's reaction a breath of fresh air. Instead of letting her reputation and etiquette training come first, she allowed her to be a silly kid like any other kid can be!
