We have a feeling the Queen may behaving words when Kate has returned from her and Prince William's tour of Canada...

All eyes were on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on Saturday as they stepped off the plane to start their tour of Canada with adorable children Prince George and Princess Charlotte in tow.

After touching down in Victoria, British Columbia, the royal couple were ready to take on the exciting eight-day trip around the country – and we were equally excited to follow them every step of the way.

But as the family smiled and waved looking as perfect as ever, Kate may have just annoyed a certain important monarch. Eep.

The 34-year-old was pictured holding 16-month-old Charlotte as she took three-year-old George’s other hand and she and Wills walked down the steps of the aircraft. Nothing out of the ordinary so far.

But then Kate was snapped bending down to speak to George. Now, you might think this is a totally normal thing to do, right?

But let’s flash back to the Trooping the Colour ceremony in June, when William was spotted doing something similar. And he got in big trouble for it.

As the 34-year-old kneeled next to George during an RAF air display, the Queen appeared to nudge him on the shoulder and utter: “Stand up William,” before he rose rather quickly.

Oops. So clearly Her Royal Highness isn’t a fan of this crouching technique, and might just have something to say when the family returns to the UK…

Despite the minor royal mishap, Will and Kate have been busy on more than 30 royal engagements during their visit to Canada.

Ah. We’ll forgive you, Kate! Enjoy the rest of your stay.
