Two of England’s little royals witnessed history on Tuesday — and made some funny faces along the way.
Prince George and his younger sister, Princess Charlotte, were snapped at Buckingham Palace watching a Royal Air Force flypast from a window.
A photo shared by People showed Charlotte poking out her tongue while George could be seen next to her with his mouth agape. Several took to social media to comment on the "cheeky" siblings.
"Cuteness," one Twitter user replied.
"Too darn cute," another echoed.
"There she is again sticking out her tongue just like uncle Harry," one woman joked.

So I just got a set of photographs of little Prince George apparently hitting his head on the window before being moved away 😂📷 #RAF100— Benjamin Wareing (@BenjaminWareing) July 10, 2018

The event was one of several held marking 100 years of the military branch.
And George and Charlotte weren’t the only famous faces in the crowd: other royals caught the action from a balcony.
“A ‘feu de joie’ (ceremonial gunfire) and a spectacular fly-past of RAF aircraft past and present illustrated the history and might of the Royal Air Force and showed just how far its aircraft have evolved in the past century," the royal family’s website states.
The royal family has close ties to the RAF, with four generations working closely with the aerial warfare force.
Prince William was an RAF search-and-rescue pilot, while his brother, Harry, served as an air traffic controller and helicopter pilot with the Army Air Corps — serving two tours of duty in Afghanistan.
The Duke of Cambridge is the 4th successive generation of the monarchy to become an RAF pilot. He received his RAF wings from his father The Prince of Wales at RAF Cranwell in April 2008 after completing an intensive 12 week flying course. #RAF100pic.twitter.com/nF9CIYcwNr— Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) July 10, 2018
