While it's true Prince William and Kate Middleton aren't all that far away from being King and Queen of England, it kind of seems like it's their kids who are in charge at times. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge clearly set rules for their little ones and don't let them run amok (usually), but let's be honest here: A lot of the time, it seems like Prince George and Princess Charlotte (and soon Prince Louis!) are the ones who are running the royal show. Wonder what Queen Elizabeth must think!

It's widely known that, out of all of the Cambridge children, Prince George is the cheekiest. We've caught the tiny heir to the throne doing everything from running away from his father on the tarmac to refusing to wave to well-wishers to causing a scene at Aunt Pippa's wedding. And even though she seems like she's the more calm of the two, Princess Charlotte obviously has her share of pull in the royal family -- Kate Middleton is always holding her when they're out and about. 

We're not judging, though. Little kids (especially three!) can be a handful. And when you're parenting in the public eye, it just makes things all the more tricky. 

Will, Kate, we think you're both doing a fabulous job, but we can't deny the fact that we love seeing little George and Charlotte acting like royal bosses.

    Sure, Prince George is the one getting in trouble here, but in a roundabout way, he's the one in control since he made Kate lose it. #irony 

  • Slinky Sneak

    The only person in the world who could get Kate Middleton to untangle a Slinky? Prince George, of course. 

  • Comfort Me. Now.

    "Yeah, I don't care. Hug. Now!"

    Sometimes, a guy just doesn't want to get off of his private jet. Can you blame the little guy? Looks so comfy.

    Did Princess Charlotte care that she was in front of a crowd of people or that Kate Middleton was wearing a fancy dress?

    That would be a "no."

  • Curtsy, Please

    Try as he may, but Prince William is not going to be able to catch Prince George. At least not gracefully.

    Not many parents need to entertain their kiddos when they're standing on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. But hey, when you're the Cambridge kids, you've seen it all.
