A resurfaced clip shows Prince William being "told off" by the Queen at a royal engagement during the celebration of his grandmother's birthday.
The Duke of Cambridge attended the traditional Trooping the Colour at Buckingham Palace along with his wife Kate Middleton, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and other members of the Royal Family in 2016.
In the video shared by TikTok account @brittoker on Wednesday (July 21), William, who wears a ceremonial uniform for the Irish Guards, gets down on one knee next to little George.
He points at the sky trying to get George's attention to look up at the fly-past.
When William turns around to talk to Kate and his brother Prince Harry, Her Majesty subtly touches his arm and appears to gesture to him to "stand up".
The Duke takes his grandmother's advice and stands up, commenting on the RAF planes' synchronised moves above Buckingham Palace.
The caption wrote: "Never too old for a telling off from your grandma."
More than 25,000 people have seen the clip in just two days, with many adding their thoughts in the comments.
"Queen says stand up, you stand up," one laughed.
"Paying too much attention to a child!" a second commented and a third wrote: "He was getting scolded of being a good father. Just because he needs to stand upright like royalties do, are they even human?"
But some suggested the Queen only asked Prince William to stand up to "pay respect to what was going on at that one moment".
According to one body language expert, William has displayed his fatherly figure in various public events in the past and he has been seen preparing his eldest son George as the future monarch.
Judi James told Daily Star: "George holds hands with his parents to walk with them in a more mirrored way and he is usually shown holding his dad’s hand in a way that suggests William is keeping his son close while inducting him into his future royal role."
