They're both the future Queens of England, but that doesn't mean Kate Middleton and Camilla Parker Bowles are besties. Though they are often seen at the same royal functions while wearing the same perfectly practiced smiles, on occasion, the two future Queens of England let their guards down -- including their happy expressions. We get it; it's hard to force a smile for an entire event.

Nope, apparently life's not all smiles at Buckingham Palace! It's unrealistic to expect even the royals to get along with each other all the time, and given the interesting familial situation surrounded Camilla and Prince Charles, it's no surprise that there might be some tension. 

Queen Elizabeth has been known to have some issues with Camilla her daughter-in-law ever since she married Charles in 2005, and apparently this "cold war" also extends to the Duchess of Cambridge. Getting along with the in-laws is never easy, but we can imagine that royal in-laws can be even worse. Official royal engagements constantly throw these two together where there is absolutely no escape. It's no wonder they can get on each other's nerves sometimes!

Don't believe us? Check out all the times Camilla and Kate were over each other -- and you'll see why.

    Even in an open carriage, you could probably hear a pin drop as Kate and Camilla sit silently side by side for the Trooping of Colour parade. Brr!

    Kate's clearly a little annoyed that she and Camilla are wearing the same outfit.

  • Mother-in-Law

    Technically, Camilla is Kate's mother-in-law. So technically, that makes Camilla the most annoying person in Kate's life.

  • You Again?

    The great thing about being a royal is getting to spend all that time with your husband's family!

    Leave it to Harry to break the mood, undoubtedly by cracking a joke.

  • Put on a Happy Face

    Kate seems thrilled to have Camilla tag along. Thrilled.

  • Another Day, Another Carriage Ride

    As if Kate's was the only carriage in town, or is it?

  • Together Again?

    Somehow these two always end up in the same carriage for Trooping the Color. Poor, Kate. 

  • All in Black

    Is it just us, or is that pure disgust in Camilla's face?
