Kate Middleton married into royalty. This means as soon as she said, "I do," she was granted with magical powers that make her look perfect at every single moment from every single angle. Because there's no way that anyone who's part of the Royal Family - through marriage or through birth - could ever look like anything less than perfection, right?
Wrong. Both Kate Middleton and her husband, Prince William, are still human despite their royal status. This means that they're capable of looking less than 100%. Sometimes they look only 99%. They never look less than 50%, because let's face it, even if they are still human, they're still better than the rest of us.
So because Kate Middleton is still human, there are going to be photos of her caught off guard every now and then. When you're that heavily photographed, they can't all be winners. Every now and then, there's going to be a photo of Kate Middleton making a wonky face or looking tired.
When Kate Middleton attended the Epson Derby Meeting at Epsom Downs Racecourse in 2011, she was caught looking a little bored. You can't really judge her for looking bored until you walk a mile in her Louboutins. Any one of us would want to GTFO of that situation!
Kate Middleton is a woman of many faces. Sometimes she's bored at racetracks. Sometimes she's bored at military functions. Kate Middleton literally travels all over the world. That means there's no place where she can't be caught staring pensively off into the distance.
Kate Middleton also isn't always clad in elegant formal wear. Sometimes she kicks it in jeans and a T-shirt. That said, the jeans and T-shirt combo are probably worth a week's worth of salary for the average person, but still. She at least tries to be more casual.
Kate Middleton is also the mother of two young children. Even if she isn't constantly covered in crumbs like other mothers, she still has her mommy moments. Every now and then, she'll have to scold one of her children. It doesn't matter that Prince George might end up as the King of England! He still has to mind his mother.
If you're wearing heels and juggling two toddlers, you're going to get caught off balance no matter who you are. Toddlers and heels were not made to coexist. You can have one or the other, you can't have both - even if you're Kate Middleton.
When Kate Middleton goes to sports games, she stops being royalty for a moment and starts being a fan. You can't help but hide your reaction to how well (or not well) your team is doing. It's nice to see Kate Middleton acting like a regular fan, and also like a regular cute couple with her husband.
When visiting the Netherlands, cameras caught Kate with a dumbfounded look on her face. Stars are just like us! They also get confused in public sometimes. The thing that makes them different from the rest of us is that they don't have a single hair out of place when it happens.
Kate Middleton has to make a lot of public appearances. During some, she's only required to stand there and look elegant. For some, she's required to jump up and down with air cadets at RAF Witterin. When those public appearances happen, you bet your booty there are cameras around to capture her looking uncomfortable!
That said, when Kate Middleton is captured making a funny face, she still somehow manages to look flawless despite it. It's hard to look stupid when you're styling is always on point. You really have to compensate for the designer clothes and blown out hairdo if you want to get caught in an outtake.
Because even though Kate Middleton was born a commoner, she is now a Duchess. And the first rule of being a Duchess is you must always look perfect, no matter how weird a face you're making. And Kate Middleton does that in spades.
