Part of the duties of being a working member of the British Royal Family includes attending several public events. And considering how many they have to attend, we can imagine that a few of them might be quite boring.

While regular people can get away with dozing off for a couple of minutes during events like this, famous Royals cannot. And their slight drift into dreamland is very likely to be caught on camera and published for the world to see.

Once upon a time, this was something Princess Diana experienced. The photo was reportedly taken in 1981 and it was just after Diana and Prince Charles got married.

The Royal was seen wearing a lovely lilac dress and the overall image seemed to portray innocence, beauty, and relatability.

To many people, the real-life Sleeping Beauty was plunged from the freedom of being a regular person and thrown straight into the life of a Royal with all the rules and restraints that come with it.

Of course, not everyone would have seen it that way. As the newly-crowned 'Princess of Wales' at the time, many might have expected Lady Di to show a little more professionalism. But considering all the drama and complications that came not long after the photo was taken, Diana certainly got the sympathy of the people.

As it turned out, the now-late royal wasn't the only one to have sleepy moments while in public. Shortly after Diana's son, Prince William, and wife Kate Middleton welcomed their third child, the Duke was back on royal duties.

He was spotted at the Anzac Day of Service in April 2018, barely able to keep his eyes open. It was easy to speculate that little Prince Louis probably kept his daddy up all night.

Sure, their jobs might revolve around remaining classy and focused during public appearances, but based on these sleepy moments, the Royals have shown themselves to be as human as any of us. Sometimes, keeping our eyes open can be very difficult and we can easily forgive them for these slip-ups.
