After being thrown into the public eye almost immediately after birth, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis quickly had to learn how royals are expected to act in public.
The siblings can often be found bringing joy to many as they smile and wave to onlookers and photographers on almost any occasion.
The next generation of royals are expected to take etiquette training and to bow or curtesy to the Queen from a very young age.
And despite undergoing training, Prince William has also taught them sweet gestures himself – which include a lesson he learnt from their grandmother Diana.
One of her best habits – and one that has been carried on by Prince William with his own children – was getting her sons to write thank you notes to anyone who helped them.
A source explained: “[William and Kate] have developed this brilliant knack of letting as much as they can seem spontaneous and that’s how the children see it.
“Table manners, thank you letters, little courtesies are being drilled into the children so they become automatic.”
This habit was vividly remembered by former royal protection officer, Ken Wharfe.
He explained that one time Prince Harry had wanted to take the London Underground as well as use the famous red buses.

So that’s just what they did. The group hopped on the tube at South Kensington tube station and got off at Piccadilly.
They then took the 38 bus direct to Victoria station, and according to Wharfe, Prince Harry was far from well-behaved.
The bus driver was a Sikh man who would say each bus stop aloud before adding the sounds “parp, parp, ring, ring.”
As the group prepared to get off the bus at Green Park, naughty Prince Harry turned around to the driver and shouted: “Parp, parp, ring, ring.”
Wharfe explained that Diana was furious with her youngest son and had him apologise to the driver immediately, but by all accounts the driver found the incident hilarious, saying: “He loved it."

The bodyguard added that the following day he found a thank you letter on his desk from Harry.
Wharfe said that the prince’s note was one of gratitude for helping him live a day like a normal person, but in Harry’s true prankster nature, he signed the note with the same “parp, parp, ring, ring” that had landed him in trouble the day before.
