For the world and the United Kingdom, in particular, he is Prince William, the second in line to the British throne. But that does not spare him from being scolded by grandmom Queen Elizabeth.
According to the Daily Mail, the Queen reportedly scolded her grandson for not standing up while the airforce jets were flying past during a military parade. He was seen crouching to tend to his son George.
The hilarious moment took place during the Trooping the Colour ceremony which was held to mark the 90th birthday of the Queen on 2 June. Trooping the Colour is an old military tradition in Britain to mark the sovereign's birthday.
In pictures, she is seen tapping William's arms, indicating her displeasure. When just tapping his arm did not seem to work, she is reported to have said, " Stand up, William". He is then seen standing up quickly to avoid any embarrassment, TIME noted.
A GIF capturing the moment has gone viral. It clearly shows that no matter who William may be — or become in future — the Queen is the ultimate boss!
