Kate Middleton takes George and Charlotte to watch William in polo match

Royal fans rarely witness the Cambridge family in this kind of setting - more regularly seeing them at official royal events.

Prince George of Cambridge, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Princess Charlotte of Cambridge attend the Maserati Royal Charity Polo Trophy at the Beaufort Polo Club on June 10, 2018 in Gloucester, England.

The world got to see a less serious side of Kate on Sunday. The "Kate effect", as it has been called, is not uncommon to the Duchess of Cambridge - for whom the phenomenon is named.

But Kate stunned in a $70 cotton pinstripe dress by Zara which she paired with cute espadrilles and sunglasses for the sunny day in the country.

While Middleton opted for a casual look, she added some height to her frame with heels, choosing beige espadrille wedges that appeared to be by Russell & Bromley.

Images of four-year-old Prince George playing with a toy gun on Sunday caused outrage on social media.

Avengers: Infinity War has become the fourth film to earn at least $2 billion globally, behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens , Titanic , and Avatar .

After the pictures emerged, several people took to Twitter to voice their outrage and suggest that the royal family should have been more mindful about the toys they give Prince George and Princess Charlotte. The cheeky 3-year-old at one point showed off her handstand skills putting her mom into a fit of laughter.

However, it wasn't long before Charlotte kicked off her shoes to run around the pitch barefoot.

Sitting on a grass slope together, Savannah, 7, was pictured with her arm around Charlotte. Duchess Kate, who was standing behind her daughter, quickly rushed to her aid to comfort her - picking her up for a few brief moments after she became upset. Charlotte's older brother George joined in on some of their mischievous play.

She was also seen relaxing in Kate's lap and climbing up a bank with her mother.

Lest you think that Prince William was the main attraction of a polo match that he played in, think again. Hopefully, this is a tell-tale sign of some more summer antics from George and Charlotte.
