We don’t mean to be dramatic here, but Kensington Palace is currently being overrun with thieves. They're sprouting up like royal weddings, and it's a full-on epidemic. 

On Saturday, September 22, between the hours of 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. GMT (Greenwich Mean Time), a crime of gargantuan repercussions took place. As onlookers and church goers were pleasantly distracted by the wedding of royal family friend Sophie Carter to Robert Snuggs, a certain blue satin bundled bag belonging to Kate Middleton was taken straight from her hands.

See here, the bag pre-robbery:

The culprit? No, it was not Prince George, though he was pictured next to his mom and the bag. It was not the bride or groom, not Prince William, not Swiper the Fox, and not even Prince Harry (though he has a record of stealing when he thinks nobody's watching).

It was none other than 3-year-old Princess Charlotte, who not only took the aforementioned bag, but paraded it around afterwards as an act of defiance.

As Marie Claire confirms, the young princess swiped the item under her mother's nose, all while looking quite innocent.

... Alright, we have to give it to her, she looks pretty cute, OK? Maybe she can just keep it.
