We have gathered some of the most awkward moments the royals have come across when they were sure no one was watching.
Will They Show Up?
In 2018, when Harry and Meghan's wedding was coming up, it was wondered if Tom and Laura would make a grand appearance and finally be seen. Everyone wanted to get a glimpse at them, as they were in fact, the stepbrother and sister of Prince William and Prince Harry.
They both arrived at the wedding, however, they insisted on staying as low-key as they could. Trying to avoid the royal family label was one thing, but respecting the event and attending their brother's big day was another.
Forever Will Be
Laura Lopes may be one of the quiet members of the extended royal family, but the fact is that the monarchy is part of her whether she likes it or not. She successfully manages to hide from the press and the tabloids and brings up her family privately and modestly.
Like all families, the Windsors too have hidden secrets in the closet, some of them they wish they could bury for life. Nothing ever disappears, and the unknown will always find a way out, so it is our duty to accept what comes our way and embrace those we are fortunate to live with.
Laura may be one secret that surfaced in spite of the Royal Family's wishes. If you're in the mood for some more royal scandals, keep scrolling to see some images that the Windsors would prefer to be destroyed or locked in a faraway archive.
Tag, You’re It
Meghan Markle is one of the most talked-about women in the world, and she’s always in the public eye when she’s, well, out in public. People keep a close watch on what she’s wearing, which is how they’re able to notice when something is a little off. And on this day, when she and the prince arrived in Tonga in 2018, something was a little off — she forgot to remove the tags on her new Self Portrait dress.
She reportedly chose the bright red number to match both the flag of the country and the carpet, of course. But as lovely as she looked, the (crazy expensive) tag was a little distracting as it blew in the wind.
One of the most important things about being out in public as a woman in the royal family is being able to carry yourself with grace through any and all situations – even when something happens that’s beyond your control. And that’s exactly what Denmark’s Princess Mary did when the heel of her pumps got wedged into a crack on the sidewalk during one of her events.
She simply slid out of the shoe, gracefully lowered herself to pick it up, and had one of her men assist her while she put it back on. Then, she moved right back along with her day like it never happened. Way to handle a tricky situation, princess!
