Prince William may have shown royal watchers and fans some of his skills over the years that included being an air ambulance pilot, as well as a doting father to his children Prince George and Princess Charlotte. However, there is one skill that the royal prince admitted to lacking, namely cooking.
The Duke of Cambridge was very candid during his recent visit to the homeless charity The Passage. Apart from touring the charity’s new facilities, Prince William also met Alex Reid, who battled drug addiction and is one of the individuals supported by the said organization, Express reported. When Reid asked the royal about his cooking skills, Prince William revealed that he was a flop in the kitchen.
He commented that he was “always getting grief for [his] lack of cooking [skills].” Unfortunately, Prince William did not disclose other information such as potential kitchen disasters he may have experienced. It is safe to assume that the 33-year-old prince may not be an active contributor to the meals being prepared at the royal couple’s Anmer Hall home.
Meanwhile, Prince William may lack the skills to become a chef, however, he recently showed that he can also be a good boxer also. The Duke of Cambridge, as well as wife Kate Middleton and brother Prince Harry attended the Heads Together campaign launch Monday. The campaign is part of the three royals’ latest project as they team up with various charities and organizations to eliminate the stigma on mental health, Us Weekly reported.
One of the fun activities set up for the launch included a chance to receive boxing instructions from world champion Duke McKenzie. Prince Harry, Prince William and wife Kate each took turns to box with McKenzie. Photos of some of the royal trio’s boxing moments with the said world champion were also uploaded on social media by Mind Charity through the organization’s Twitter account.
In a Twitter post, Mind Charity even shared a quick clip of Prince William boxing with McKenzie. The organization captioned the clip, “Duke McKenzie's verdict - the Duke of Cambridge ‘lulled me into a false sense of security & nearly hit my glasses!’"
