It's safe to say no one on the Kensington Palace social media team will be leaving for a career in film.

To celebrate the British royal family's successful eight day trip to Canada, the Kensington Palace Twitter account shared a brief video of Princess Charlotte and Prince George playing at a children's party to celebrate.

Sounds promising. Until you realise the slow-motioned, dark video is more reminiscent of a Frank Miller movie instead of two carefree youngsters playing with balloons and bubbles.

Yes, these children:

The opening message reads, "Thank you, Canada. Special moments from Thursday's children's party" in both English and French.

The attached tweet says: "We have created such happy memories for our children during this visit #RoyalVisitCanada."

Meanwhile, in happier news, Prince William issued a statement on Sunday thanking the people of Canada for their generosity before departing on a private plane with his family...a plane which George said he would "fly back to England".

"Catherine and I are incredibly grateful to the people of Canada for the warmth and hospitality they have extended to our family over the last week," the statement read.

''We have loved our time in British Columbia and Yukon and will never forget the beautiful places we have seen and the many people who have been kind enough to come to welcome us in person.

''We feel very lucky to have been able to introduce George and Charlotte to Canada. This country will play a big part in the lives of our children and we have created such happy memories for our family during this visit."
