It seems Prince William and Kate Middleton’s kids are always stealing the show. Whether it’s Prince George looking adorable at royal weddings, or Princess Charlotte’s signature wave to the press, the next generation of royals are even more popular than their parents.

However, it seems there’s a new royal kid on the block. Prince Oscar, who is the youngest child of Sweden’s Crown Princess Victoria and her husband Prince Daniel, might just be the cutest – and the grumpiest – royal we’ve ever seen.

Unlike Charlotte’s people-pleasing wave, Oscar never looks happy to see the cameras.

The 3-year-old is most likely too young to realise he’s third in line to the throne. Or perhaps he does, and royal life just doesn’t suit the young prince.

Either way, we’ve rounded up the most adorable photos of Oscar looking really unimpressed at the idea of being a royal.

Despite being third in line to the Swedish throne, he’s pretty much always frowning.

This can make it a bit difficult to get good family photos. Here he is with his parents, Prince Daniel and Crown Princess Victoria, along with his sister, Princess Estelle, and Queen Silvia of Sweden at Solliden Palace in July 2018.

In fact, he often looks like he’s about to challenge the photographer to a wrestling match.

However, perhaps the royal is just camera shy.

He certainly has good reason — his mother, Crown Princess Victoria, may be slightly cramping his style.

It was an event to encourage children to get active — but Oscar appeared not to be feeling it.

Even as a baby, he was the grumpiest royal.

When it comes to sass, this royal could give Princess Charlotte a run for her money.

Every once in a while, he’ll take a break from the norm and get involved in the activities.

No matter how big the frown …

… the young royal is certainly adorable.
