That's gotta be embarrassing

An amusing (but somewhat grainy) video making the rounds on the internet shows Prince William getting scolded, very publicly, by his grandmother, the queen. As Vanity Fair explains, the royal family was standing on the Buckingham Palace balcony for the Trooping the Colour ceremony to celebrate the queen's birthday over the weekend. Such events are "planned down to the second," and William was bending down to speak to his toddler son during a moment he should have been upright. Hence the queen's tap on his arm and "Stand up, William!" The video shows an abashed William. The BBC cut the moment from its footage, but ITN News aired it, Us reports.
