20+ Unexpected Photos That Caught Royals Doing Commoner Things

The life of the royals can hardly be called ordinary, but now and then they have a chance to do something pretty “common”. For example, they browse the shelves of supermarkets and department stores, go to the subway, ride buses and even drive trains. It may sound unbelievable, but luckily, royal photographers have collected a bunch of convincing proof that nothing human is alien to the royals.
