The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge wrapped up their royal tour of Canada on Saturday. To pay tribute to the good times they had here with their children, Kensington Palace tweeted out a video of the family at a children's party in Victoria, B.C., last Thursday.
While fans were expecting adorable clips of Prince George and Princess Charlotte with their parents, the one-minute video left many feeling bewildered by its bizarre production. Not only was the video comprised of dimmed, slow motion clips, but they were matched with equally slow and eerie music.
Take a look for yourself.
On Twitter, users couldn’t stop freaking out. Many called out the video’s peculiarities, likening it to an in memoriam clip or a horror film.

@KensingtonRoyal this is like the trailer to a really disturbing horror film— Dena Francis (@dena_francis) October 2, 2016
While fans loved seeing the young royals, they couldn’t get past the unsettling feeling they were left with. Some even asked for a redo.
@KensingtonRoyal -Sorry the kids party video is very morose. Can you redo it please?— Lady MAO (@Lady_Mary_Anne) October 3, 2016
@KensingtonRoyal is there a funeral for someone? Is someone ill? Who are you paying to make these videos? Please fire them! 😨— Michael Cook (@JamesEPhotos) October 2, 2016
Kensington Palace has not yet responded to its fans.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte only made two public appearances during the royals’ eight-day tour of Canada. However, the Duke and Duchess maintain that the children enjoyed their time here.
On Twitter, Kensington Palace released a statement from the couple:
We feel very lucky to have been able to introduce George and Charlotte to Canada. This country will play a big part in their lives. pic.twitter.com/zT03elEklv— Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) October 1, 2016
