Harry didn't actually talk at the podium for the patrons lunch but it said he did in the CC. I wonder if they were behind on the time and he got cut out.

Yeah... but I'm not sure. I saw reporters say that both of them were gonna speak but then they changed it and said that just William would. If I remember correctly it was long before the royals even arrived.

What an over-exaggeration.

The reason why people making a little noise about this because people dont often see The Queen giving her family any instructions in public. I first noticed this in the itn video.

Telling him to stand up (the flight was fixing to go overhead) wasn't a telling off as they are claiming.

I was sure I'd seen the Queen directing traffic in the past when going onto/off of the balcony?

He's a 33-year-old married father-of-two with a responsible job as an air ambulance pilot, not to mention being the future King.

But you're never too old or important for a ticking off from your gran, as hilarious footage of the Queen scolding Prince William on the balcony of Buckingham Palace reveals.

The monarch was seen tapping the Duke of Cambridge on the arm and gesturing him to stand up as he crouched down to tend to a boisterous Prince George.

Close examination of the moment appears to show the monarch saying: 'Stand up William.'

In any case her meaning was perfectly clear from her hand gestures.

She tapped William on the shoulder and then made an upward motion with her right hand in case he hadn't got the message.

William rose to his feet, looking rather sheepish over the public telling off from his 90-year-old grandmother.
So William ia a 33-year-old married father-of-two with a responsible job as an air ambulance pilot, not to mention being the future King now.

If I remember correctly, it was the Fail who almost went to war against William and Kate because they were not full-time royals.

Quote:
uch of the country tuned in to watch Trooping the Colour last weekend, to celebrate Her Majesty's 90th birthday.

Dogs were dressed up and a rainy picnic was had in honour of Queen Elizabeth.

However, one detail during the celebrations was missed, and just recently emerged on the internet.

While they were on the balcony, the Queen was caught on camera apparently scolding her grandchild.

He was seated, and she had to ask him to stand up.

Seemingly abashed, the Duke of Cambridge stood up straight away.

The video has been shared by various accounts on social media, and has been retweeted thousands of times.

As a cherry on the cake, Prince George appeared to do a face-palm after the event.

If you watch closely, you can see the Queen speak. She appears to say: "Stand up, William".

In case he didn't hear her, she tapped him on the shoulder and did 'stand up' motion with her hand.

Thousands of people turned up to Buckingham Palace in order to celebrate with Her Majesty.
I've noticed this the same day it happened, and so did others here. And it was not a 'telling off', she was just telling him to get up.

Norway - they have to list positive traits about him in order to make his being "told off" by Granny more humiliating.

It's basically "here's several reasons he's an adult, and he's gonna be king, but by God he still gets in trouble when he misbehaves in public".

I thought the interaction was adorable, and not at all him being "told off", but perhaps him being reminded what he was there for. In many ways he's not there for the fly over himself, but to be seen by the crowds, and him crouching down to point things out to George (while adorable in itself, and a great moment to see), it means that the people down in the street can't see William - he's too low.

Thinking about it, it actually kind of makes me feel bad for William - this is a very literal depiction of his struggle between balancing being a good parent and being a good Royal.

1: Yes, I know.

2: I thought the interaction was adorable too, and you can see that HM was also talking to George.

3: Yes, but I thinks he is doing a good job (regardless what the press thinks) in balancing these two important roles in his life. And I agree with the other stuff you pointed out too.

He was interacting with his son and while I know the Queen was doing the "right" thing I didn't like it. JMO

or.... she could be wondering "what's wrong?" as all Gan-Gan's do.

Personally, I think they're making a mountain out of the starting construction of a molehill.

It seemed to me she was more concerned with William standing up than if George was ok. Not the end of the world but very telling IMO

As telling as a 4 second video clip where we can't hear what anyone is saying can possibly be about a person's life and priorities, that is.

Which is to say, not very.

I did see it as a bit of a dressing down.

William stooped down to talk to George.
He could have talked to George without stooping.

He may have acted appropriately as a father but not as a uniformed officer.

I saw it as the Queen reminding William he was still in uniform and should act appropriately as a uniformed military officer.

The Queen always puts duty first.

He was in uniform.
The Queen is his Commander-in-Chief.

OMG what's the problem? She was just telling William in that adorable moment (who most people think was hilarious) to stand up because the planes was flying towards the palace, and she could also be seen both talking to and looking at George in the BBC broadcast. To me and almost everyone else, this two things is very 'telling' to what a wonderful grandmother and great-grandmothers she is. And we know that she is a very good grandmother and that she is very interested in her great-grandchildren.

And if some of the very few members here (who are always after her) still wants to go with the bad mother and now possible bad grandmother/great-grandmother thing again, then you're of course free to do so.

But you couldn't be more wrong, and I don't understand how it's possible to do so after all we've heard from family members, heads of states, prime ministers and the heartwarming stories we hear from people who meets her and from current and former staffers. Almost everyone who meets this wonderful lady is talking about how kind and caring she is.

I bet if someone called Buckingham Palace and asked for confirmation of just what did happen at that precise time, it would take a bit of a while to get hung up on as they'd have to stop rolling on the floor laughing first.

Trivial. Purely trivial yet the media is blowing it up to be breaking news.
