5 times the Royal Family lost their temper in public

The Royal Family are known for holding themselves with so much grace and dignity, so much so that when they're seen slipping up or acting 'human', it's deemed newsworthy.

However, it's important to remember that they're only human and are bound to lose their tempers every now and again.

We don't get to see it often, as the royals try to act professionally while they're in the public eye.

But sometimes we do get a glimpse of the monarchy's irritable moments…

Here are five times the royals have lost their temper, and how they've handled the situation:

The Queen telling Prince William off during her birthday celebrations

Back in 2016, during the Trooping the Colour celebrations, Prince William was told off by his grandmother, the Queen.

The Prince appeared on the Buckingham Palace balcony with his family, and bent down to talk to his eldest son, Prince George.

However, the Queen was not impressed with this, and knowing thousands were watching, the matriarch snapped at William, telling him to stand up, and so he did!

The Duchess of Cambridge putting son Prince George in line at sister Pippa's wedding

Back in 2017, Kate Middleton's sister Pippa wed James Matthews in a lavish ceremony that the Cambridges all attended.

However, the Duchess had to have a few stern words with son Prince George after the cheeky kid was spotted playing around with his aunt's wedding dress and shaking out the contents of his flower basket.

The youngster cried a little but he soon brightened up.

Prince William got in trouble with his grandmother as a youngster

Speaking during documentary The Queen at 90 , the Duke of Cambridge explained: "[Peter Phillips and I] were chasing Zara around who was on a go-cart, and [we] managed to herd Zara into a lamppost and the lamppost came down and nearly squashed her.

"And I remember my grandmother being the first person out at Balmoral to come running across the lawn in her kilt.

"She came charging over and gave us the most almighty telling off, and that sort of stuck in my mind from that moment on."

Prince Philip lost it during a royal photo-call

During a 2015 photo-call at the RAF Club to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the start of the Battle of Britain, the Queen's husband, Prince Philip lost his rag at a group of cameramen and swore at them.

The royal is reported to have said: "Just taking the f***ing picture!" making the rest of his family laugh at his frustration.

Prince Harry got upset over the use of plastic

The Duke of Sussex's friend Nacho Figueras has spoken about the Prince's fiery temper, and how back in May 2019 he made it clear he didn't like the use of plastic.

Professional polo player Nacho told CBS This Morning : "We were at the hotel where we spent the night before the game.

"He talked to a person and said, 'This morning I got my coffee and I saw that you have a plastic thing on the coffee.

"And then I also sent my shirt and I got my shirt in a big plastic bag. Can we please not use plastic?'"

Nacho added: "So that's this guy, okay. I don't like to talk about that at all, that's who he is. That's who they are. No plastic."

TV presenter Gayle King replied: "They're trying to make the world a better place, every day."
