Prince William got water thrown in his face during yesterday's London Marathon – and we'd be lying if we said it wasn't our plan to spend the rest of the afternoon looking at these pictures.

Alongside his wife Kate and brother Harry, William set the runners off on their way at the 26.2 mile race – but that wasn't all.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also stopped by the water station with Prince Harry at Mile 22 to help give out refreshments to all those exhausted runners, which is where things took a rather hilarious unfortunate turn.

While handing out refreshments, a few cheeky runners probably decided it would be legendary to splash the unsuspecting prince with water – and it was pretty funny, to be fair.

Not for Kate, maybe, because she didn't look too impressed, but at least Wills saw the funny side.

Here's a close-up.

Of course, Kate, William and Harry weren't the only celebrities at the event yesterday.

Chris Evans (from Radio 2, not Captain America), Matt Johnson and James Cracknell all ran the event; as well as EastEnders star Adam Woodyatt, three members of Scouting for Girls, Gogglebox star Baasit Siddiqui and Jenni Falconer.

We even found a new celebrity in the form of hero runner Matthew Rees (not that one), but William getting splashed is still our favourite Marathon moment.

We do feel a little bad though because not only is he a stand-up guy, but William is also leading the mental health campaign Heads Together with Kate and Harry – and they're doing a great job as well.
