Ainhoa BarcelonaThere have been times when the royal family just weren't feeling their public engagements, and looked like they'd rather be somewhere else – see the photos of Queen, Princess Diana, Prince George, Princess Anne and more
The royal family are usually calm and collected when carrying out public engagements. They are, after all, in work mode and representing The Firm.
But sometimes the Queen and her relatives can't help feeling like they'd rather be somewhere else – which goes to show they really are like us and don't hesitate in wearing their heart on their sleeve.
Take a look at these amusing and entertaining snaps of the family over the years, starting with Her Majesty and her firstborn son Prince Charles…
The Prince of Wales
The Braemar Gathering is usually a highlight of the Queen's summer holiday. As chieftain of the Highland Games, the monarch always attends and it's one of the few times the public will see the Queen during her summer break in Scotland.
The family is usually pictured having a laugh, watching the annual tug-of-war and the sack race to name a few games, but it looks like Charles just wasn't feeling it that year.
It was a momentous occasion for the Queen when she was coronated in 1953, but we can see why the ceremony might not have been the most thrilling for a four-year-old Prince Charles!
Royal tours sure are exciting, but they're also tiring for the little ones! Here a sleepy George looks ready for naptime.
Speaking of naps, the Princess of Wales can be forgiven for nodding off at a gala recital at the Victoria and Albert Museum back in 1981.
Diana was actually a couple of months pregnant with Prince William at the time. The moment caught on camera earned her the nickname Sleeping Beauty.
It's not all glitz and glamour! A few years into her royal life, Diana couldn't help looking like she'd rather be somewhere else than attending a formal state banquet at Buckingham Palace.
The Queen's husband shut his eyes momentarily during a visit to Port Talbot. Philip and the Queen were listening to a presentation on energy production during a tour of the new Baglan power station. Can't say we blame you Philip!
The races aren't for everyone. Here Diana is pictured looking a bit wistful while Princess Anne and Prince Philip chat in the background.
