Kate Middleton usually maintains a solid poker face when conducting her royal duties. The Duchess rarely gives anything away through her facial expressions. But Express.co.uk has looked back through the archives to discover the subtle way Kate shows her husband Prince William who’s the real boss in their relationship.

When conducting their royal duties, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge make for a professional pair.

Kate accompanied her husband William to his inaugural launch of his Earthshot awards, where Dermot O’Leary described the pair’s chemistry as “electric.”

It’s no doubt the couple have a strong relationship but in any work, partnership relations can become strained.

Kate (almost) always remains poised while carrying out her vital duties, but the occasional slip caught on camera can reveal how she is truly feeling.

During a trip to Poland in 2017, Kate appeared to vent her frustration at her husband while attending a garden party.

Kate was caught on camera dropping her beaming smile to scowl at her husband.

Hours before Kate had maintained her professional demeanour by happily smiling and chatting to crowds outside Poland’s Presidential Palace.

But despite her apparent displeasure with her husband, the Duchess was quick to adopt her professional manner once more.

Shortly after she was photographed smiling again and even raised a toast to William after his speech.

It’s not known why Kate had a tiff with her husband that day, but according to OK! her scowl might have been down to the stress of carrying out a royal tour while looking after young Prince George and Princess Charlotte as they accompanied their parents on the trip.

This isn’t the only time Kate has let her poker face slide.

The Duchess committed to a gruelling tour to New York in 2014 despite being five months pregnant with Princess Charlotte at the time.

During her trip, Kate visited a children’s centre to help with present wrapping.

The Duchess stopped her wrapping to chat with some of the centre’s volunteers but she was told to “keep wrapping.”

Kate took her scolding in good humour, giving an epic eye roll after being told off.

Despite these rare occasions where her professional mask has slipped Kate has hardly put a foot wrong.

In fact, royal fans are usually delighted to see that Kate is only human when her true emotions have shone through.

Even when her three children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis – accompany her, Kate rarely lets this phase her.

But there have been a few temper tantrums by the young Cambridges which have been met by stern words from their mother.

For example, at Pippa Middleton’s wedding in 2017, Prince George didn’t appear to be best pleased with his role as a page boy.

As the Cambridges made their way back to their cars Kate turned to her son and gave him a stern telling off for his naughty behaviour.

While Princess Charlotte’s mini-meltdown on the tarmac at Hamberg Airpot in 2017 was met with stern words by her mother.

The toddler quickly seemed to calm down and peace was restored.
