But when Trooping the Colour interferes with naptime, the toddler isn’t immune to throwing himself a pity party—and embarrassing his parents Prince William and Kate Middleton in the process.

Luckily, his adorable chubby cheeks make it hard to stay mad at the little royal for long. But with another younger sibling in the family, we have a feeling these fits won't stop any time soon.
