The Queen was once caught telling off Prince William on camera at Trooping the Colour


PROVING she’s just like any other grandmother wanting to keep her junior relatives in order, the Queen was once caught on camera “telling off” Prince William.

At Trooping the Colour in June 2016, the monarch was seen appearing to scold her grandson, the Duke of Cambridge, as they lined up on the Buckingham Palace balcony.

The Queen was seen “telling off” Prince William at Trooping the Colour in June 2016

Her Majesty – who was celebrating her 90th official birthday – could be seen telling off William, 37, for crouching down with his son Prince George instead of standing up beside her for the crowds.

Wearing a lime green ensemble, the Queen, now 93, was caught on camera tapping him on the shoulder and gesturing to him to rise.

She appeared to say “stand up, William” before looking forward at the view down The Mall.

Looking slightly sheepish, the Duke – in military dress – got up straight away.

Behind them was another of the monarch’s grandsons, Prince Harry, and her youngest child Prince Edward.

Just out of shot was Kate Middleton holding Princess Charlotte – at her first Trooping the Colour – and George can be seen holding his hand to his face.

The funny family moment was shared on Twitter in 2016 by American journalist Brandon McGinley.

Captioning the clip, he wrote: “Come for the queen scolding William, stay for the George face palm.”

Twitter users loved how the Duke of Cambridge instantly “obeyed” his famous grandmother

His post received more than 8,000 ‘likes’ and thousands of comments.

One person wrote: “Love it he’s a grown man in uniform however she still bosses him hahahahah.”

Another shared: “That is so great. I like how he obeys her.”

It comes after William admitted his famous grandmother once gave him “the most almighty b******ing” after he chased cousin Zara Phillips into a lamp post as a youngster.
