To truly appreciate this amazingness, you need a little bit of set-up: Last weekend, the royals attended the Trooping the Colour parade -- where Princess Charlotte also made her first public appearance. There is video of the family, including Prince William and Queen Elizabeth in her lime green best, together on the balcony at Buckingham Palace.
Let's call this video "The Prequel":
There are four frames, in particular, we need to discuss, clockwise from top left:
1. Prince William directs his 2-year-old son, Prince George, to wave to the crowd.
2. Prince George does as told and waves to crowd at the palace. (Real cute wave.)
3. Prince William proceeds to crouch down to his son's level as he speaks with him.
4. Queen Elizabeth is like, "WTF?"
Oh, wait. Here's one more frame:
SHE DID NOT COME TO PLAY WITH YOU. SHE CAME TO SLAY.
And now, behold this GIF that keeps on giving:
Come for the queen scolding William, stay for the George facepalm. pic.twitter.com/etvmofiU5m— Brandon McGinley (@brandonmcg) June 15, 2016
Even baby Prince George was like *face palms*.
It's worth noting that the Duchess of Cambridge (see also: Kate Middleton) was not reprimanded when she bent down to speak with young George.
OK, Princess Charlotte, say goodbye!
Meanwhile, Prince William just made history as the first royal to land the cover of an LGBT magazine. Hear the anti-bullying message he sent to Attitude magazine in the video below.
