There's no denying the fact that, like Prince George, Princess Charlotte lives a #blessed life. At the tender age of 4, she has more stamps in her passport than most of us will garner in a lifetime. She flies private. Oh, and then there's the whole living in a castle and being a princess thing. No biggie. That said, she's 4 years old. And sometimes when you're 4, fancy dinners, exotic getaways, and one-on-ones with dignitaries aren't all that exciting. In fact, they're downright boring. Seriously what toddler wants dine on creme brulee at a five-star restaurant when there's a bag of cheddar bunnies begging to be thrown on the floor and smashed into smithereens? 

Of course, given the fact that her mum and dad are Kate Middleton and Prince William, Charlotte's fancy life isn't going to come to an end any time soon. In fact, the older she gets, the more royal functions she'll likely be attending. And although such engagements may sound fascinating for an adult, for a kid? Bor-ing.

For a small fry, Charlotte manages to stay pretty poised and polished during most royal appearances. But every once in a while, she just seems over it and like she'd much rather be at home in her jammies, playing with trains or dressing her dollies. (Again, 4, people.)

In the past few years, Charlotte has gone from sweet little babe to tiny firecracker and we couldn't love her more for it. Here are 20 times Charlotte let it be known that she was over royal life. Never change, Charlotte. Never change. 

  • Prince Louis' Christening

    Does Charlotte look amused at Prince Louis' christening? That would be a hard no.

  • Too Cool for School

    Clearly Charlotte doesn't care what anyone thinks, what with her sunglasses in her mouth and all. Watch dad play charity polo? Nah, that's a pass for Char. 

  • 'Fine ... Hi.'

    If Charlotte wasn't doing her most going-through-the-motions wave and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding, what was she doing?

  • Not Even Trying to Hide It

    Like all 3-year-olds, Charlotte just can't help but hide how she's really feeling sometimes. Let's face it -- there are times all of us just want to stick our tongue out and blow a raspberry.

  • Trooping the Colour 2016

    Princess Charlotte didn't seem too impressed with her very first Trooping the Colour, which takes place annually in June. It's the official celebration of Queen Elizabeth's birthday, even though her real birthday is in April.

    All we can think Charlotte was thinking here when she went in to meet Prince Louis for the first time was: Na-na-na-na-na, I got my daddy. 

  • Need It Even Be Said?

    Ov. Er. It. Charlotte was so over the royal life during a tour in Germany in 2017. She threw quite the tantrum on the tarmac, but Kate Middleton handled it like a total boss mom.

  • School Vibes

    Even though this is hands-down one of the cutest photos of Princess Charlotte ever, we can't help but get the sense that she's thinking, "Hurry up and take the dang photo already, Mum!"

  • Trooping the Colour 2017

    Kate looks like she's trying to amp up the little princess in this shot, and she's saying, "Not gonna work, Mum. I'm missing Bubble Guppies for this."

  • Arriving in Poland

    When the royal family arrived in Poland last year, Charlotte was so not into greeting her adoring fans. To be fair, flying can take it out of a lot of adults ... we can't blame this tired toddler for her mood.

  • Arriving in Germany

    Charlotte may have received her first mini bouquet of flowers when she arrived in Germany, but she didn't look too thrilled about it. 

  • Does Charlotte Look Amused?

    No, she does not. Another plane ride, and they never seem to land at Disneyland. Maybe someday, little princess.

  • Not Sure About That Princess Life

    Princess Charlotte was contemplating her life choices, or at least the circumstances of her birth, at Aunt Pippa Middleton's 2017 wedding to James Matthews. 

  • Another Photo, Mom?

    Kate Middleton took this shot herself, in honor of Princess Charlotte's second birthday in 2017. She looks adorable, as always, but also like she's ready to be done with this photo sesh. 

  • Trooping the Color 2018

    To be fair, all of the royal children here, save for little Isla Phillips, look pretty dang bored, but Charlotte just may take the cake. 

  • 'Hold Me, Mum.'

    The only thing Charlotte looks remotely pleased about here is that Kate Middleton is holding her. She's totally done with everything else.

  • 'Where's Santa?'

    During the traditional walkabout on Christmas in 2016, Charlotte didn't seem too into waving to fans. Like most kids on Christmas, she was probably just thinking about Santa.

    Princess Charlotte has been in a lot of weddings in the last couple of years, and she may have been over it by the time Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's nuptials rolled around in October 2018.

  • Why Though?

    During a royal tour in Canada in 2016, Kate Middleton seemed to be questioning her daughter about something. Maybe she was asking her if she could please just smile and wave for the cameras?

  • Trooping the Colour 2019

    All the Cambridge kids look like they're done in this pic from 2019's Trooping the Colour. It was Prince Louis' first time attending, so maybe Charlotte was unimpressed by not being the "baby" anymore? And Prince George was just a total mood that day.

    What is it about the Trooping the Colour anyway?
