And we never noticed it before!

Prince William and Kate Middleton are one of the most talked about couples in the world, with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge making viral news with their Game of Thrones addictions, sweet PDA moments and family life with Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

It’s hardly surprising therefore that the two are often a target for photographers, and even less surprising that they have their own ways of avoiding the paps.

According to a royal correspondent, Kate and Wills are very private and are known for the hilarious ways in which they make photographers' jobs harder.

How? By stopping them from getting the perfect image.

Yes, really. Apparently, Kate and William purposely avoid looking at a ‘fixed point’ when being photographed, making it difficult for photographers to capture a good quality photo of the two of them.

According to the royal correspondent, this is hardly surprising, with the source going on to explain how both Prince William and Prince Harry are ‘control freaks’ when it comes to coverage of themselves and their families.

We must add that we have never seen this trick used, with good quality photographs of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge all over the internet. Not to mention, Princess Charlotte and her adorable curties and hand waving is any photographer's dream.

So we'll leave this up to you to make your own minds up.
