It was definitely a moment that they will never forget! The royal couple is sure to be more careful the next time they are at a bird sanctuary.
We can only assume that this was the eagle’s way of welcoming them to their home. The funniest part of the photo is Prince Charles’s expression when the bird flew too close to them.

It is always nice to see the royal family taking part in traditional activities and also enjoying themselves. Everyone else seems to be focused on the game while the queen and her son are sharing great laughter.
We don’t exactly know why the royals are laughing but not many things make the queen laugh and if she was laughing at something it had to be funny.
Little Girl Eats Prince Harry’s Popcorn
At the Invictus Games in Toronto, Prince Harry was photographed watching a volleyball match. What caught everyone’s attention was this little girl who was busy munching on some popcorn. However, the only problem was that she was eating the popcorn from Prince Harry’s popcorn bucket. At first, the prince did not realize what was happening but when he saw it he offered some popcorn to the little girl.
The picture is so adorable that we can’t help but love it. This photo just goes to show that the royals are indeed very down-to-earth people.
Prince Charles Climbing a Rock-Climbing Wall Without Any Safety Gear
Prince Charles showed that he is not just a king in waiting but also an adrenaline junkie when he was photographed climbing a rock wall without any safety gear. The picture was taken during his Royal visit to New Jersey USA. Even though he hasn’t climbed very high in the picture, it would have been better if the Prince used some sort of safety gear otherwise it could have been a disaster.

Prince Harry Being Prince Harry
This is an absolutely adorable picture of a very young Prince Harry sticking his tongue out while in Diana’s arms. The picture was taken back around the 1980s and shows just how rebellious the prince used to be. Well, and to be honest he is still very rebellious. It is one of those candid pictures that just make you smile and feel happy.
It can be seen in the photo that Diana does not approve of her son’s behavior, and we are sure she talked to him about it after the Royal event was over. We are sure that this picture brings back a lot of happy memories for Prince Harry.

Prince William Star Struck To Meet Nicole Kidman At A BAFTA Event
When we normally talk about the royals, they are the ones who take the VIP celebrity status however that was not the case at the 2011 BAFTA Brits to Watch. At the BAFTA event, Prince William was photographed meeting Nicole Kidman for the first time and he looked absolutely star-struck. It is always charming to see how even royals can get stars’ trucks when they meet their idols.
We are sure that Prince William had a great time meeting Nicole Kidman and we are sure that it was a dream come true for him.
A Very Funny Joke
We don’t know what the royal couple is laughing at but the joke had to be really funny because look at how big their laugh is! It seems like they are really enjoying themselves and we love to see this side of them. Even though we don’t realize this but royal duties can be very stressful and sometimes it just feels good to see the royal family letting off some steam.
However, we would still like to know what the joke was but maybe the royals have some inside jokes that they wouldn’t want to share with their subjects.
Queen Elizabeth and Meghan Markle Share a Rare Laughing Moment Together
We all know that the British Royal family can be quite stiff and formal but in this photo, we see a rare moment where Queen Elizabeth and Meghan Markle are sharing a laugh together. This photo was taken during one of their visits to Cheshire. It is good to know that even though they have different roles within the royal family, they could still enjoy each other’s company.
With all that has happened over the last few years and then the Queen’s passing we will never see any similar moment ever again where the Queen and the Duchess shared a laughing moment.
The Queen Riding A Horse at Age 95
This photo was taken in 2021 when the Queen was 95 years old and she is seen riding a horse. Even at that age, she still looks amazing here and it just goes to show how much she loved horses.
It is said that the queen had been riding since she was very young and she was a very skilled rider. Like Corgis, the Queen also had a special place for Horses in her heart and actually owned up to 100 horses.
The Real Sleeping Beauty
In this photo, we see a very pregnant Diana who looks like she is about to fall asleep. It is said that she was bored during this gala event in 1981 and she was actually pregnant with Prince William at the time. When you are pregnant you just want to relax at home and not be at a stuffy event. However royal duties sometimes get in the way of that.
As royals, you are obliged to attend these types of events even if you are not feeling your best. However, she still looks beautiful and we are sure she was a great sport about it.
The Queen Without Her Hat
In this photo, we see the Queen without one of her signature hats and she is getting out of the car. Wearing a hat is actually a royal protocol for female members of the royal family. It is a little bit strange to see her without a hat because she is almost always photographed with one. We are not sure where or when this photo was taken but it might have been taken during a more private moment.
Even though she is not wearing a hat here, she still looks regal and elegant as always. We still don’t understand why she wasn’t wearing a hat and her outfit feels a little incomplete without it.
Prince William and Kate Pretending To Be Hermione and Harry Potter
Who doesn’t love harry potter? Even members of the British Royal family is a fans. In this photo, Prince William and Kate Middleton are pretending to be Hermione Granger and Harry Potter from the “Harry Potter” franchise. They are posing so perfectly as Harry Potter characters and seem like they would fit great in the show. This photo is actually from the inauguration event of Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden.
This respective set is from a Harry Potter-based show Diagon Alley hence the wands. It is good to know that the royals are also as much of a fan as we are!
Sarah Ferguson and Princess Diana Share a Chuckling Moment Together
In this photo, we see Sarah Ferguson and Princess Diana sharing a chuckle together. It is good to know that even though they both had their problems with the Windsor family, they were still able to be friends. This picture is from a polo event and it seems like they are really enjoying each other’s company. Unfortunately, Diana passed away very young otherwise this could have been a friendship that lasted for many years.
These two didn’t have that much of a good relationship with the royal family and may be that is the thing they both bonded on.
Kate Middleton’s Cinderella Moment
The Duchess of Cambridge was attending a royal parade event when she got her heel stuck in a metal grate. Luckily, Prince William was there to help her out and they laughed about it afterward. This just goes to show that even royals have accidents sometimes! Prince William looks like an absolute gentleman standing there giving support to his wife so she can pull her heel out and move on with the proceedings.
I am sure the Duchess tries to be more careful after that incident because if you have ever worn heels you know that they can be a lot to handle for some people.
Prince William Being A Great Dad
We love this photo because it just shows the great relationship that Prince William has with his children. He is very hands-on and loves to play around with them. Here all three of his kids can be seen getting on his back while all of them have a great family time.
We are sure that Prince William is a great dad and loves every minute that he spends with his family. Not only must it be great for the kids but also for the Prince himself.
Princess Anne in Her Jodhpurs
Princess Anne is known for being a very skilled equestrian in this photo, we see her in her jodhpurs and hat at the 1982 Badminton Horse Trials. She looks very serious in this photo which is not surprising because she is competing. Even though she is concentrating on the event, she still looks beautiful. This picture looks so good that it could be in a magazine.
She is the only member of the Royal family to have competed in the Olympics. She has also won silver and gold medals in horse riding for her country in the European Eventing Championship.
Prince Charles Meeting With the Locals
Well if you are like most people then you think that the Royals have very strict boundaries and they actually do. However, that does not mean that they do not like to mix with the locals when they can. Here we see a photo of Prince Charles talking with some of the locals. It just goes to show that he is a down-to-earth guy and does not mind getting close to the general public.
We are sure the guy meeting Charles would have been very grateful and Charles would have listened to the comments or concerns that person might have had for the country.
Vintage Photo From 1951
This is an old photo from 1951 of princess Elizabeth, her husband Prince Philip, and their two toddlers Charles and Anne. This was taken during a time when the family was spending quality time in one of their beautiful gardens. It is amazing how much the royal family changed over the years but some things still remained the same such as their love for spending time together.
Prince Philip was known for his controversially funny remarks but he was a family man who loved his wife and kids. Sadly both The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh passed away but we are sure the younger generation of the royal family has many happy memories like this one to look back on.
Princess Diana Watched a Polo Match While Sitting On the Grass
The royals aren’t used to sitting on the ground however Diana was always a rebel. Here we see her sitting on the grass during a polo match. Prince William is also with her and it looks like they are having a great time. It is also good to see that she wasn’t afraid to get dirty and sit on the ground.
She was always down to earth and loved doing things that weren’t considered royal. We are sure it was a great bonding time for the princess and her son.

Have you ever seen or participated in a sack race? They can be quite fun. In this photo, we see Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth at a sack race event in Scotland.

Charles is wearing the traditional Scottish Kilt here, and he looks great in it.
It also looks like one of the told a really funny joke and that is why everyone is laughing. We are sure that like every year the royals enjoyed attending this annual event in Scotland.
Prince Philip Riding a Carriage All By Himself
In this photo, we see Prince Philip all by himself riding a carriage. He looks quite serious in the photo and it seems like he is concentrating on something. Maybe he is thinking about the next event that he has to attend or maybe he is just deep in thought. Either way, it is a great photo of him and we are sure that he enjoyed the ride all by himself.
It must have been a nice change of pace for him to just relax and enjoy after his retirement. Sadly the Prince passed away but we are sure he spent a great life.
Prince George Playing With Bubbles
As kids, we have all played blown and played with bubbles. It was one of the most fun activities we used to do as kids. However, we are not the only ones who liked playing with bubbles. The Royal children aren’t any different. How adorable is this photo? It just shows the innocence of childhood and how even royalty like to play with bubbles. Prince George looks like he is having a great time.
He also looks surprised by the bubbles that he is about to pop. It must be fantastic for Kate and William to see their son having so much fun and enjoying his life.

This photo was taken during Kate’s royal visit to India and Burma. In the photo, we see Kate attending a children’s cricket match. She looks interested in the game and is also chatting with one of the young players. More than the cricket match she seems to be happy with meeting the locals and sharing a laugh.

Kate Middleton has other photos as well where she is playing cricket on royal visits but you seriously get some very happy and positive vibes from this picture.

Here we see Prince Harry shaking the hand of a rugby player. It looks like he is very happy to be meeting him and they seem to have a great rapport with each other. This just goes to show that Prince Harry isn’t just a royal but he is also a sports fan. He probably had some great conversations with James Haskell about the game of rugby and how he is doing in his career.
It must have been great for James Haskell to meet someone like Prince Harry who is so down to earth and interested in what he has to say.

Insightful, candid photos of the British royal family offer a glimpse into their everyday lives. Here, Prince William is stretching and exercising on the lawn before playing in a charity polo match. Though the event was for charity, the prince still shows his competitive side as he prepares for the game. He was exercising and stretching before the match when a camera person snapped this photo.

In this photo we see the Queen laughing while Prince Harry looks a little bit embarrassed by something. The Queen was always known for her great sense of humor. We are not sure what Prince Harry is embarrassed about here but it must have been something funny.
Maybe he said something embarrassing or maybe his grandmother just caught him doing something that she did not approve of. In each case, it is a great photo that captures a funny moment between the Queen and her grandson.
Princess Diana In 1989 During A Mother’s Race At Wetherby School
We have already said that Diana was always a rebel. If someone still doesn’t believe that then they should look at this photo. This photo was taken in 1989 during a mother’s race at Wetherby School. Diana was participating in the race and she was very competitive. What’s more surprising is that she was barefoot! Now that is a sight you do not see that often.
This just goes to show that she wasn’t afraid to break the rules and do things her own way. This is what made her so popular with the people.
Young Princess Anne and Prince Charles at the JFK Airport

They look like any other traveler waiting for their flight. However, they are surrounded by security personnel who are making sure that they are safe.

It is moments like these that show that the Royal Family may be wealthy and privileged but they are also down-to-earth and approachable.
The Future Queen in Casual Clothes

The clothing is completely different from the type of clothes she wears now and she looks like a normal student in the picture. This is the time when the future Duchess of Cambridge met Prince William of House Windsor. It was the start of a real fairytale which resulted in a marriage and three beautiful kids.
She looks equally beautiful in her causal clothing as she looks in her royal clothes these days. Her style has actually become so popular that the designs she wears go for a very high price.
Princess Charlotte Squinting Out the Window during Trooping the Color Event
In-between royal engagements, the British royal family is often photographed by the press. While some of these photos are posed, others are candid moments caught on camera. Here is one of the most adorable candid photos of the British royal family! Princess Charlotte has been stealing hearts since she was born. The young princess is often photographed with her parents, Prince William, and Kate Middleton. In the photo, taken during the Trooping the Color event, Charlotte can be seen squinting out the window.
The window seems to be foggy which is probably why she had to squint. We don’t know what she was looking at exactly but we think she was trying to get a glimpse of the trooping the color parade.
Prince Harry Offering a Sandwich to a Little Girl
Here he can be seen in charge of the Sandwich tray. He is most at the Fit and Fed initiative event. He can be seen in the picture asking a little girl if she wants a sandwich and we are sure the little girl would have loved to take the sandwich from the prince.
She could actually boast about this with her friends and family. It is always nice to see candid moments of the royals interacting with children and commoners.
