OK, maybe not all of us can relate to that situation specifically. But we can sure as hell relate to poor Prince William's facial expressions when he had to do it during rehearsals for the queen's birthday celebrations. The queen's birthday is actually in April, but ceremony dictates it be celebrated during the summer, a time of year that must making wearing one of those damned hats unbearably hot. Will's face says it all.

The moral of the story? Even the royals themselves get fed up with all the pomp and ceremony in their lives sometimes. It's just one more reason to love them to pieces.
