Royal mischief! Cheeky Princess Charlotte steals the show at the King's Cup regatta

Despite the royals being in the public eye, this doesn’t mean that they are immune to being cheeky every now and again, as Princess Charlotte proved on Thursday.

The young royal and her mother Duchess Kate attended the King’s Cup yachting regatta and in a hilariously candid moment from the pair, Princess Charlotte poked her tongue out at the crowd instead of following her mother’s instructions to wave.

It doesn’t seem like the young royal got into too much trouble off mum, as Duchess Kate and the crowd reacted in the same way, bursting into laughter at her four-year-old’s gesture.

Duchess Kate and Prince William competed separately in the yacht race with Charlotte and her older brother Prince George watching on from another boat.

Unfortunately, the Duchess was awarded the wooden spoon for her yacht’s performance. Prince William fared much better and came equal third.

The first place was taken out by TV star Bear Grylls, who made a comment about Prince George while accepting his trophy, according to Yahoo! Lifestyle.

“And also Prince George, your first ant you ate today,” he said, “And that is a great moment. Well done you.”
