16 Times the British Royal Family Wasn’t so Royal after All

All 95-year-old men are allowed to get a little cranky from time to time and it was certainly Prince Philip’s turn when he became impatient with a dithering photographer at a Battle of Britain event in 2015 and shouted: “just take the f***ing picture”. I guess just because you’re royal, it doesn’t mean you don’t lose your temper from time to time

6. When Philip lost his temper

According to a report from Fox News, when William and Harry were younger, the Queen asked them for help setting up her voicemail message. They “helped her out” by leaving the following message, which gave her private secretary the shock of his life: “Hey, Wassup! This is Liz. Sorry I’m away from the throne. For a hotline to Philip, press one. For Charles, press two. And for the corgis, press three.”

Prince Harry found himself in hot water in 2005 when he showed up at a friend’s fancy dress party wearing a swastika armband. The then 20-year-old apologised afterward for his shockingly bad judgement, admitting that it was a poor choice of costume.

Prince William is an air ambulance pilot and a father himself, but that doesn’t stop him from getting scolded by his grandma from time to time. The Queen gave him a good talking to when he crouched down to talk to a boisterous Prince George during her birthday celebrations in 2016. He sheepishly rose to his feet after an agitated Queen Elizabeth tapped him and said: “Stand up William”

Any Republicans out there can probably sympathise with Prince Charles on this one. During a royal photocall in Switzerland, just before he wedded Camilla, in 2005 he was caught on the microphone saying: “I hate doing this. “Bloody people. I can’t bear that man anyway. He’s so awful, he really is. I hate these people.” It wasn’t the first time Charles revealed his dislike for his duties; in letters to his friends, he called them “nonsensical rubbish”
