Oftentimes, members of the royal family struggle to appear relatable to the general public. After all, these people have vast amounts of money and have virtually no idea what it's like to lead a normal life. No matter who you are though, sometimes pudding can be just too thick to stir.
In a recently released video, Prince George has trouble stirring together some Christmas pudding. The internet is getting maximum joy from the clip. Even royalty gets tired arms from too much stirring.
The clip was taken earlier this month on Dec. 21, when the 5-year-old made the pudding alongside his father Prince William, as well as Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth II. The pudding making was meant to celebrate the launch of the Royal British Legion's Together at Christmas campaign.
The goal of the campaign is to provide much-needed support for the Armed Forces and veterans around the holiday season. Although Prince George struggled to stir his, the pudding will ultimately play an important role in the campaign.
"The initiative is designed to provide extra support to the Armed Forces and veteran communities at annual festive ‘get-togethers’ across the charity’s network of outreach centres," said a statement. "[The puddings] will become the centrepieces of 2020’s get togethers, and form part of 99 puddings distributed across the charity’s network in the UK and the Commonwealth — also marking The Royal British Legion’s 99th year."
Although it's not likely to happen anytime soon, it's nice to have a video of a future king doing something normal and human.
Although the video has no sound, things really start to get good once Prince George begins to stab the pudding. The Queen, perhaps sensing a disaster looming, grabs George's arm and keeps him from flinging the ingredients in all directions.
While the event may seem silly, it's actually one of the few times that Queen Elizabeth has been photographed alongside all three of her future successors. Although people have mixed feelings on the royals in general, it's hard to deny how cute George and his pudding are.
Social media users seemed to agree. "Love how George made everyone laugh when he smashed the ingredients," one user wrote in response to the video.
"I'm just here for George cause he's a cutie and the only one working here," another said.
"Love the way Her Majesty shuffles Prince Charles off when George starts stabbing at the cake mixing hard lol," one fan of the Queen's performance wrote. "[Proper] Granny; lovely Video."
Sometimes, all it takes is a little pudding to make you relatable.
