4George Delivers the Cheese

There's only one reason to dress your child like this for a photograph, and it's to delight everyone who sees it. George is more than game to cheese for the cameras to delight his fanbase. Well played, little one.

5Kate Shakes It Out

Kate doesn't just wave at fans, she gets down in the trenches and shakes their hands. The likely future queen appreciates her fans so much that she made physical contact with one. We bet that lady tweeted something like "The beautiful Duchess of Cambridge shook my hand today #blessed" about the occasion.

8Harry Cares About the Children

Harry values his young fans so much that he meets them whenever he can. Here he gives a girl an extended high-five, or perhaps they're playing a one-handed game of Patty Cake. Either way, Harry values her very much.

13Boy & Bear

Every fan matters to the Queen, especially the ones who could use some cheering up the most. During a visit to The Norfolk Hospice, a boy who lost his mum to cancer gave the queen a teddy bear for Charlotte. We're not crying. We just have terrible allergies.
