Princess Charlotte threw a small tantrum at one point but it was still pretty adorable More

Catherine The Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George of Cambridge and Princess Charlotte of Cambridge at the Beaufort Polo Club in Tetbury, Gloucestershire, England, UK., June 10, 2018. Prince George and Princess Charlotte had some fun in the sun as they cheered on their dad playing polo.

Savannah was also at the polo, along with her sister Isla, with the pair playing with George and Charlotte. The royal family found themselves criticized for allowing their son a toy seen as an inappropriate in the wake of high-profile incidents of gun violence across the world. Crowds assembled outside the palace lawns to watch the Trooping the Colour ceremony which saw several musicians, about a 1,000 soldiers march together and a stunning flypast by the Royal Air Force.

However, there was one element of the Sunday summer scene which seemed out of place: Prince George, 4, was spotted wielding a rather realistic toy gun.

But when Prince George tried to join in, he was quickly silenced by Savannah, who put her hand over the third in line to the throne's mouth.

However, many also rushed to defend Prince George and his parents, pointing out that the young royal will one day be Commander-in-Chief of the British Armed Forces. My American side here, biased maybe b/c of everyday #gunviolence in U.S., but my British side agrees.

Trump Says That Without Otto Warmbier, North Korea Summit Wouldn't Have Happened
Trump said he raised the issue of human rights with Kim, and he believed the North Korean leader wanted to "do the right thing". We're not special, but we're Americans and we know what freedom's like, and we have to stand up for this.

But pictures from the day depicting George brandishing a toy gun cast a shadow on an otherwise happy day. "This looks far too real".

When it comes to toys and playing, it's been known that the Duke and Duchess encourage their littles ones to go outside.

Prince William looked at the two playful children in front of him, seemingly unamused.

"Kate alone shouldn't be blamed about this as we don't know who owns the toys, but someone should have said that this is NOT OK".
