Kate Middleton (A.K.A The Duchess of Cambridge) is known for her super stylish wardrobe and as one of the most fashionable royals, it's only right her mini-me follows in her footsteps. His wife the Duchess of Cambridge took their eldest children Prince George and Princess Charlotte out to support their royal dad as he participated in the game at Beaufort Polo Club in Gloucestershire on Sunday, June 10.

George, dressed in beige shorts and a navy t-shirt, was pictured playing with a toy gun, toy knife and handcuffs.

Okay, okay, slight exaggeration but it is refreshing to see the royal family having a day out just like anyone else. It also happened to be the Buckingham Palace balcony debut of Meghan Markle, now Duchess of Sussex.

After the pictures emerged, several people took to Twitter to voice their outrage and suggest that the royal family should have been more mindful about the toys they give Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Part of the event was an open house for the emergency services that included an air ambulance vehicle that interested Prince George.

Kate also got in on the fun, as she had a go on Prince George's rainbow slinky and was also in fits of giggles as Charlotte attempted (and adorably failed) at her gymnastics.

Savannah, 7, first pretended she was conducting music as the national anthem played and then put her hand over the mouth of George, who appeared to be singing along, as if to quiet him.

Aside from his minor slump, he was seen frolicking around with his little sister and bonding with his seven-year-old cousin, Savannah Phillips, Peter Phillips and Autumn Kelly's daughter. Is it still acceptable for kids to play with toy weapons these days?

Kate could be seen pulling out toy guns, a walkie talkie and more treats for the duo to play with.
