When Kate Middleton and Prince William took their kids to the King's Cup—a recent charity regatta which saw the royal couple compete against one another—they likely knew the younger royal generation might steal the show. (It's hard to compete with a six-year-old, four-year-old, and one-year-old for entertainment value.) But it's doubtful they saw Princess Charlotte's big moment coming.

After the race, Kate and Will were escorting their children down a set of stairs. Just outside the floor-to-ceiling windows, a large crowd of royal watchers had gathered—and after her mother pointed towards them, Charlotte immediately stuck her tongue out in their direction. In the video of the incident (available above), onlookers can be heard cheering with delight at the young royal's antics.

But now we know that Charlotte wasn't simply joking with her fans—and Kate wasn't just pointing out the crowd, either. According to Hello, Kate was pointing out her father (Charlotte's grandfather), Michael Middleton. That inspired Charlotte to stick her tongue out at Michael, too.

Michael and his wife Carole, it seems, are quite doting grandparents to Princess Charlotte, as well as Prince George and Prince Louis. For two years in a row, Kate's parents have accompanied the family on vacation to the Caribbean island Mustique. And just recently, Charlotte and George were seen hanging out with Michael and Carole and a local festival.

A source told People that the royals' grandparents didn't have to worry too much about keeping them in line. "They were so cute, and Charlotte particularly was very friendly, politely saying hello to other children," the source said. "George was running around, exactly like all the other children."
