As we all know, all of the members of the royal family are expected to act in a certain way. There always seems to be an air of elegance and class when people are in the presence of a royal, but every once and a while, they need to break the regal facade. Our dear Kate Middleton is probably the best out of all the royals when it comes to keeping her composure during engagements and public events. She's always the epitome of grace, whether she's in front of her family, fans, or even important diplomats. However, even the Duchess of Cambridge can't stay composed all the time. Over time in the spotlight, we've been fortunate enough to see Kate break character a few times.

Unlike her husband Prince William, who tends to start giggling at the most inopportune times, Kate usually just flashes everyone a funny expression when she breaks out of her duchess zone. Whether it's laughing with children or cheering at a sporting event, Kate really isn't afraid to put aside the HRH status for a second and just be a regular woman!

Usually we talk about Prince William or their two oldest kiddos Prince George and Princess Charlotte as being complete #MOODS when they attend official royal events, but hey, we think Kate has it in her too. Who says a duchess can't be the one to give the cameras a funny face or an adorable scowl?? We think it's time we start appreciate Kate for not only her imbecile style and enviable class, but also for her adorable ability to completely royal and completely goofy at the same time. So, here are 20 funny Kate Middleton facial expressions that made us completely LOL.

  • Trying To Make Him Crack

    Usually it's Prince William who breaks character during stiff royal engagements, but this time, it was his darling wife Kate who was the one losing her duchess airs for a moment. There might be a reason that Wills was hiding his face when this photo was taken. Hiding a smirk there, duke??

    It may have just been a horse racing event, but Kate's facial expression says "let's do this." We don't think we've ever seen the duchess this ready to watch the Royal Ascot in all of her eight years as a royal lady.

  • A Little Tipsy, There?

    Pre-royal Kate really had some good facial expression for us. It almost makes us miss this time! We don't know what was in that cup that the soon-to-be duchess was holding, but man, it must have been strong.

  • Hiding Judgement

    Is it just us, or was our dear Kate Middleton trying to hide some subtle judgement right here?? The duchess is usually pretty composed and all-smiles, but we have to say, she was definitely having a hard time hiding her emotions at this royal event.

  • Red Carpet Awe

    Yeah, this would probably be our reaction if we had the chance to walk a super exclusive red carpet. The only difference is that this definitely wasn't Kate's first red carpeted event, which makes this facial expression all the better. 

  • Ewwww

    We definitely wouldn't want to be the ones to put this expression on Kate's face! Whatever she was looking at was definitely not good at all, but hey, at least we learned one thing from this: the duchess still looks adorable while making a disgusted face.

  • Ready for Action

    We all know that Kate isn't afraid to really get into her royal engagements -- even if it means jumping around in heels or playing football (soccer, for us American folk). The duchess was definitely ready for anything when the photographer took this photo.

  • One With the Animals

    This is probably the face we'd make too if we had the opportunity to feed little baby lamps on the English countryside. Seriously, Kate is living the life, and by the looks of this expression ... she knows it.

  • Excitement or Anger?

    Hm, we're not really sure what was going on with the duchess here. It looks like she could have really been excited to greet her fans that showed up ... or she could have been really pissed off about something. If we had to guess, we'd say she was just having a hard time hiding her enthusiasm. 

  • Wowed by Flowers

    Sometimes even the simple gift of a bouquet of flowers can surprise this duchess. We sure it must be tough having hundreds of cameras on you at all times, but Kate always has someone to catch moments when her expression looks like this!

  • Cheeky Kate

    We're no experts or anything, but this face on our dear Kate makes us believe that she just said something very cheeky. We know that Miss Middleton has a little spunk to her (I mean ... just look at her kids), so this assumption wouldn't be too far off.

  • Confusing William

    12

    Usually it's Prince William that's causing trouble during the Cambridge's public outings, but it looks like Kate was the class clown this day! From the looks of things, Will was enjoying having his wife being the one to crack for a change.

  • Fake Frown

    Okay ... who looks this adorable while making a funny face?? Kate could make just about any face she wants, and she would still look like a perfect royal duchess. Is it fair? Not at all, but we still love her for it!

  • Nothing But Focus

    Seriously, we're starting to think that no one gets into sports more than Kate Middleton. We've seen plenty of videos of Prince William getting excited over football, and it looks like he and his wife have this in common.

  • Game Face

    Hmm so this is what Kate Middleton's game face looks like. We've always known that the duchess has no problem taking part in physical activity during her royal engagements, and now it looks like we get to see what she looks like when she really gets into it.

  • Pleasing Charlotte

    It's amazing what moms will do to get their children to laugh. Kate didn't care at all that she had hundreds of cameras on her at the Trooping the Colour ceremony ... she was going to get Charlotte to smile no matter what!

  • "LOL, What??"

    Our new favorite Kate Middleton face is the one where she's desperately trying to hide some judgement. We're not sure what caused Kate to purse her brows like this, but oof. That's not a look we'd want to cause the duchess to make!

  • Making Them Smile

    If there's anything that Kate is an expert at, it's making kiddos laugh and smile. And it looks like she saves her best funny expression for the young kids that come out to see her during royal engagements!

  • A Duchess, Through & Through

    Now isn't this jus the epitome of royal class and elegance?? Our dear Kate is usually so composed, so anytime she breaks that royal mold, we can't get enough of it. All humans make funny faces -- even duchesses!

  • Wimbledon Tension

    We love seeing how into it Kate gets whenever she attends the exclusive Wimbledon tennis tournament every year. The duchess may always be sitting in the royal box, but she cheers and exclamations just like she's a regular 'ol spectator.
