We all get scolded by our grandmother several or multiple times at our childhood. It is completely normal, and sometimes if we truly are naughty it can still happen when we are in the brink of adulthood.
But of course when we grow up and most especially when we already have families of our own, a scolding should be out of the question, right?
Well not quite. For some reason kids will always be kids in the eyes of parents, grandparents, and even aunts and uncles.
And if you come from a close knit family you'll know that anyone in the generation above you will always have something to say in family gatherings.
For a royal though, there is even an added dynamic when your grandmother is no less than the Queen.
It is a lesson that Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge seems to know well when Queen Elizabeth II scolded him during last weekend's Trooping the Color ceremony in Buckingham Palace.
The royal family was in the balcony in front of the public, wearing their finery when the Duke was told off by his granny.
His fault? Crouching down to speak to his son, Prince George.
Eagle eyed watchers were able to discern the Queen's mouth when she ordered her grandson to "stand up, William".https://twitter.com/brandonmcg/status/743210283389304834
The Prince may be the future King but right now Granny is the Sovereign and when she speaks, she speaks as not only the Queen of the United Kingdom and Ireland, she also carries herself as the Head of State of fifteen other nations and territories.
So it is no surprise that William immediately stood up to attention. Meanwhile his brother Prince Harry who stood behind him and saw the entire exchange had a cheeky grin (probably thinking, "somebody's in trouble"). To cap it off Prince George did a face palm that may or may not be a response to his father's gaffe.
