George, who's known to have an interest in police, was also pictured playing with what looked like a toy knife and handcuffs. "THAT is #girlpower", one person wrote. My American side here, biased maybe b/c of everyday #gunviolence in United States of America, but my British side agrees. No child in this day and age should look at any gun as a fun toy.
The playful photos did spark some backlash on social media, however, as some people thought George's toy gun was an innappropriate choice.
And he was seen playing with a slinky before being chased around by his sister Charlotte.
But photos immediately after show Kate was actually running to greet England polo player Malcolm Borwick, who appeared to be beckoning her from beside the white marquees a few metres from the grass bank.
Giving us deja vu today, Savannah and George have unconsciously replicated the incident, showing just how times have changed, but the antics of young British Royals haven't.
