Royal Fans Rinse Prince William For Awkward Picture Outside Kensington Palace

Royal Fans Rinse Prince William For Awkward Picture Outside Kensington Palace

What’s going on here?

We’ve all taken the odd bad selfie or two (or a thousand) in our time and had our mates completely rip us for it.

However, when you’re the heir to the throne, a bad photo can lead to a right royal debacle.

Prince William took to Instagram to share a photo of him opening the doors to Kensington Palace while presenters Clara Amfo and Dermot O’Leary stand outside.

Writing on the official Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Instagram page, their 13 million followers were asked to ‘caption this’ photo – with hundreds of people taking the task eagerly.

“When you get caught playing knock door run,” one woman wrote.

While another person joked: “You’re not my Uber Eats!”

“No thanks, the wife has plenty of Avon stuff,” said a third, while a fourth quipped: “I can come out, but not until after tea!”

Another person joked that Prince William had a touch of the Simon Cowell about him, writing: “You’ve made it through to X Factor bootcamp!”

And someone else wrote: “Aren’t you a bit old to be trick or treating?”

But the light-hearted ribbing was all for a good cause, with Prince William promoting the Earthshot Prize – one of the most prestigious environmental prizes to help make the world a more sustainable place to live.

This year, KSI, Ed Sheeran and Coldplay are among guests performing at the event, which takes place later this year.

It’s not the first time fans have teased Prince William.

Last month, people couldn’t help but take the mick out of the dad-of-three when he shared a video of himself sitting down to write an introduction to the Earthshot: How To Save Our Planet book.

However, fans responded by questioning why he was typing with only two fingers on a typewriter.

“Just use a laptop next time, g,” someone responded.

Ahh William, you make it too easy for us!
