It's easy to forget, given their royal names, that Prince George and Princess Charlotte are probably a lot like every other kid you've met. It's likely that when they aren't expertly posing for royal portraits, Charlotte and George play hide-and-seek, obsess over the latest Pokémon-like craze, and pick their noses (but hopefully not each other's).

Just because you're born with a tiny gold crown to your name doesn't mean you don't want to play or goof off every now and then. It doesn't mean you don't need to cry sometimes -- even if that's when everyone's watching -- or that you're not moved by the need to skip while walking with mum and dad from time to time. Kids will be kids, thank goodness, and that goes for George and Charlotte too.

Of course, every so often, these royal cuties surprise us right out of our royal awe by behaving just like regular kids. We may not always expect it with all the pomp and circumstance that surrounds their public outings, but it sure does make us all feel a little more normal about our kids and their behavior.

Keep reading to see some of our favorite photos of Princess Charlotte and Prince George acting like every other little kid we know.

  • Do You Want to Build a Snowman?

    Kate, Wills, and George look family picture perfect, but it's clear that Charlotte just wants to play with her big bro in the snow. Except for the minor detail that this portrait was taken in the French Alps, this could be a photo of any happy family.

    Don't mind Charlotte, she's just munching on her fingers while watching the Trooping of the Colour. Admittedly, those fingers do look perfectly snack-sized. 

  • He Loves to Laugh

    From the same event, we have George pulling a hilariously jovial expression. Like any happy kid, the little prince just wants to laugh with his family.

    Thrilled to see her mom or passing gas? It's hard to tell. Whatever she's feeling, Charlotte looks like she's about as expressive as any other little baby at her christening.

  • And the Award for Best Big Brother Goes To ...

    George proved that he couldn't stand being apart from his little sister for even a minute when he peeked in on Charlotte at her christening. Big brothers really are the best, especially when they're dressed in adorable short-and-frilly shirt ensembles.

    Here's George skipping while holding his parents' hands. This serves as a lovely reminder that George is an adorable toddler who loves his mum and dad, in case anyone forgot.

    Look beyond the fact that he's posing with the queen and two maybe future kings of England and you'll see a kid who is ecstatic to hang out with some of his very favorite people -- his grandad, great-grandmum, and dad.

  • Even Princes Have Butts

    George doesn't want his royal title to interfere with becoming friends with absolutely everyone. The social little prince showed off his endearing personality while making an appearance at Buckingham Palace last June.

    George couldn't hide his excitement while watching the Trooping the Colour last year. Like many toddlers, the young royal lacks any trace of a poker face.

    Here's George giving his dad just a touch of side-eye for picking out matching outfits during their visit to see Mum and newborn Charlotte at the hospital.
