It has so often been said that the Royal Family are not a family, but instead a firm. Whilst this may be true in a public setting, I think we need a bit of reminding that the Royal Family are people too! So here is a little collection of our favourite pictures of the Royal Family in situations that are not public engagements. Some on holidays, some performing non-royal jobs and others just performing every day tasks we consider to menial for Royals to do. Enjoy!
