Relive the Duke and Duchess’ Funniest Moments Just in Time for Their Wedding Anniversary

It's five years since Prince William and Kate Middleton tied the knot at Westminster Abbey and while the wedding was a big state occasion that we all enjoyed, we've seen the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge let their hair down plenty of times since their wedding day - at official engagements, sports events and even on holiday. 

To celebrate the more human side of the young royal couple and to wish them well on their fifth wedding anniversary, we've compiled our favourite funny moments of Wills and Kate. From taking part in a welly throwing competition against Prince Harry to that eye-rolling moment when the Duchess was caught on camera, here's to the most down-to-earth duo the royal family has ever seen…

THE TIME THEY TRIED ARCHERY

The duke and duchess tried their hand at archery during their tour of India and Bhutan and as the pictures show, they threw themselves into it with complete enthusiasm - even if neither of them hit the mark! 

THE TIME THEY WENT SKIING

Back in March this year the family went skiing in the French Alps and while everyone was obsessed with catching a glimpse of Prince George and Princess Charlotte together, Wills and Kate were the real stars of the show, play fighting in the snow and proving they're just like any young couple taking time out. Aww.

THE TIME THEY PULLED THE BEST FACES

This deserved a series of snaps - just because Will and Kate have been carried away at lots of events down the years, showing just how passionate they are about sport. They've pulled all sorts of funny faces as spectators, whether it was date night at the Rugby World Cup or watching Wales and Scotland face off at hockey. Covering their eyes, pouting, yelling and laughing - we just love seeing them lost in the moment and not always being camera-ready. 

THE TIME THEY SPUN SOME DISCS

DJ Kate and DJ Wills in the house! Bet you never imagined Prince William and Kate taking to the decks but the couple gave it a go while visiting a youth community centre in Australia and the results are hilarious. Time for a career change, perhaps?

THE TIME THEY PUT A SPELL ON EACH OTHER

And we’re not talking about a romantic one! Instead, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, along with Prince Harry, had a ball when they pretended to cast spells on each other at the official opening of Warner Bros.Studios. Expecto Patronum!

THE TIME THEY GOT SO EXCITED, THEY JUST COULDN'T HIDE IT

Who can forget the heady days of London 2012, when the Duke and Duchess completely forgot all royal decorum at the Olympics and jumped up and down hugging each other with glee? 

THE TIME THEY ROCKED COWBOY HATS

The best part of being a royal is that you get to dress up all the time! One of the funniest outfits to date saw the newly married couple rock matching cowboy hats and rodeo get-ups during their tour of Canada in July 2011.

THE TIME THEY BECAME PROFESSIONAL ARTISTS

The couple put their artistic skills to the test at Inner City Arts in Los Angeles in 2011 in front of all the cameras, and of course came up with such creations as Mr. Snail. Hilarious!

THE TIME THEY TOSSED WELLIES

It turns out Prince William has a secret talent. No, it’s not dropping beats or sprinting at lightening speed, it’s – wait for it – welly tossing! This might just be our favourite clip which shows William beating Harry and Kate in a welly winging competition at BAFTA’s headquarters. One for the CV, eh Wills?

THE TIME THEY DANCED AWKWARDLY IN TUVALU

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are lucky enough to travel all over the world, but that does mean that they have to embrace local traditions! At a welcoming ceremony on the Pacific island of Tuvalu, the pair donned traditional Polynesian dress and took to the stage to dance with the locals. Yes, it's awkward, yes, we've never seen Prince Wills move his hips before but hats off to the couple for giving it their best shot! 

BONUS: THE TIME KATE GAVE THAT EYE ROLL

We couldn't compile the couple's funniest moments without including the moment when Kate showed her human side! Remember the hilarious eye roll she gave after a bossy bystander told the Duchess to 'keep wrapping' presents at a charity event? We hear you Kate and we salute you!
