Kate MiddletonJudging by Kate Middleton's packed schedule, being a member of the royal family is serious business. From royal ceremonies and public appearances, to charity events and diplomatic trips abroad, it doesn't seem like there's much time for goofing off. Occasionally, though, even the perpetually elegant Duchess of Cambridge can't resist letting loose and indulging in her silly side. 

Kate has a way of making even the most formal public appearances a little more fun. Check out some of Kate Middleton's silliest moments!

    Kate didn't fool anyone when she tried on an oversized hat at a charity shop. She's still clearly the Duchess of Cambridge. We'd recognize that megawatt smile anywhere!

    Kate really got into playing the drums with some students at the Anna Freud Centre Family School Christmas party. We love how she always commits 100 percent to the fun activities she participates in when she visits children.

    Kate was participating in a charity event at ICAP, but we'd like to think she was making prank calls to Harry and the queen.

    Here's Kate casually throwing a rain boot during a game at a Charities Forum event. Her athletic prowess probably comes in handy during competitions like this one.

    Kate gave George a little boost while they played in the grass at Will's charity polo match. This will be a great picture to embarrass George with at his high school graduation party.

    We'd love to think that Kate brings this giant inflatable duck with her everywhere she goes, but alas, she was just celebrating the opening of the Kensington Leisure Centre. It's still an adorably goofy picture.

  • Fashion Show

    Kate showed off her skills as a stylist when she picked out a flattering onesie for Wills. Okay, it was actually for Charlotte, but we still appreciated Kate's comedic efforts.

  • Hello From the Other Side

    Kate chatted with her baby bump while visiting Action for Children's Cape Hill Children's Centre. She was probably talking to Charlotte about how much she loved Adele's new album.

    In what has to be one of the most heart-meltingly cute photos of a royal to date, Kate shared some pretty flowers with a young fan at a charity event.

    During a visit with a group of Beaver Scouts, Kate casually held a fork with a boxing glove, as one does. This probably taught everyone a valuable lesson about teamwork, or maybe about how hard it is to eat pasta while wearing a boxing glove.
