Prince CharlesIt's time for another installment of the world's most proper family, and this time it's Prince Charles who's looking extra serious. Though he's the doting grandfather to two adorable royal kids, Chuck often looks like he just caught wind of the rest of the world's crushing inferiorityTo paraphrase Derek Zoolander, we're pretty sure there's a lot more to life than being really, really, ridiculously uptight-looking. 

Chuck's tight-lipped, nervous, and stiff expressions can provide endless entertainment for even the royal family's biggest fans. If you're just simple paupers like ourselves and could use a laugh, these photos of Prince Charles looking like he needs to take a chill pill are for you.

    Charles is clearly not having any of whatever nonsense that simpleton is serving. It looks like Chuck's saying, "You talkin' to me or you talkin' to the door over there? That's what I thought."

    Chuck looked especially displeased with what we imagine was a less-than-stellar cup of earl grey while touring the South Caernarfon Creameries co-op.

    If you've ever wondered what the face of a man who lived through the very public ending of his first marriage looks like, here you go. Don't reflect back on the tabloid headlines, Chuck! That never does anyone any good.

    We're not implying that Charles looks like an older version of Dick Van Dyke's character Bert the chimney sweep from Mary Poppins. That would be a ridiculous thing to do.

    Charles looked deeply unhappy with a flower box while hanging out with Camilla at Royal Ascot. Trophy or no trophy, these flowers simply will not do for this future king of England.

    Here's Charles looking positively uneasy at an event for the Union Cross & George Cross Association. If ever there was an occasion for a person to take a chill pill, this would be it.

    Chuck brought little joy to the Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre when he toured it this year. Maybe he was having a vision about the impending Brexit.

    Charles looked like he could have been the inspiration for a certain Monty Python sketch here. Judging from the look on Charles's face, though, we have a feeling he wasn't in a particularly silly mood.

    Charles looked deeply uneasy while monitoring the sky at another birthday celebration for his royal mum. It's okay, Charles, we're sure there's a helpful security guard nearby who can shield you from the elements with an umbrella.

    Charles looked like he saw a ghost, but really he was just visiting an automotive parts factory. Can someone play a guided meditation recording through those things? Chuck could really use some deep relaxation.

  • Just Like Tippi Hedren

    Charles appeared to be reenacting a scene from Alfred Hitchock's classic The Birds while visiting with some students at Ashley Primary School. We're sure it was a riveting performance!

    Charles was dressed to the nines at a reception dinner for the British Asian Trust, but looking like an older James Bond apparently didn't stop him from experiencing high anxiety. Somebody give this man a paper bag, stat!

    A family of normal folk struggled to maintain Charles's attention as he nervously gazed off into the distance. This kind of stress is exactly what chill pills are for. And by chill pill, we mean a glass of rosé and a marathon of Nora Ephron movies.
