From Princess Diana’s shock after stalling her car back in the eighties, to Prince Charles’ hilarious reaction when Camilla threatens him with a knife, these expressions are priceless.

Rest assured that not even members of the Royal family are immune to a moment of shock.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are known for their prim ‘n proper composure and hardly ever give in to public displays of affection. However, they aren’t immune to the odd moment of shock.

Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall

While on a 12-day tour to Australia and New Zealand in 2015, Duchess Camilla couldn’t resist playfully threatening Prince Charles with a knife. His reaction says it all.

It would appear that bald eagles have the same reaction on the poor Prince. Pictured here, Prince Charles and Camilla react as a bald eagle flaps its wings during their visit to the Sandringham Flower Show in 2015.

Queen Elizabeth II

The matriarch of the Royal family and one of the most powerful people on earth also lets her guard down every once in a while. Unfortunately for her, there are always cameras nearby, snapping away.

The late Princess Diana

Before you snicker at this, think back to your first driving lesson. We would like to say, “Not so funny now, eh?” But we can’t. Just look at this expression.

This photo was taken shortly before her relationship with Prince Charles was made public. Fair to say she was still getting used to paparazzi following her every move.

Sophie, Countess of Wessex

Prince Edward’s wife visited Wheel Power in 2014, the national charity for wheelchair sport in the UK. Sophie may have been a tad bit surprised by her archery skills. Or lack thereof?
