Prince William and Kate Middleton will one day be the King and Queen Consort of England, but they’re really just like any married couple — and their latest outing as proved as much.
Visiting the city of Bradford on January 15, the pair were all smiles as they stepped out for their first official joint engagement for 2020.
Stopping first at City Hall in Centenary Square, members of the public lined the streets to catch a glimpse of the royal couple. They certainly weren’t disappointed.
Wearing a beautiful moss green Alexander McQueen coat, which featured a military style silhouette in midi-length, Kate was glowing as she greeted well wishers. Having recently celebrated her birthday on January 9, the royal was swamped with birthday wishes to boot — with many bringing bunches of flowers for Kate.
Said flowers were specifically duchess-worthy, however, so when William picked up a white rose from a crowd-member, he made sure to deliver it to its rightful recipient. Too sweet!
William was also looking calm and relaxed despite the happenings surrounding younger brother Prince Harry and wife Meghan’s decision to “step back” as senior members of the royal family. Earlier this week, William was called to a crisis meeting at Sandringham to meet with his brother alongside the Queen and Prince Charles where they discussed the families future.
While it was later announced the family had given Harry and Meghan their full support, it would no doubt have been an emotional week for the Prince. So perhaps that’s why he also made a hilarious, yet sweet faux pas when he was shown cupcakes with pictures of his family of five.
According to Hello!, as he looked at one of the cupcakes, William did a double take — asking if one of the images was of himself or Princess Charlotte!
“Is that me? Doesn’t it look like Charlotte?” He asked the woman, pointing to a picture with a young Cambridge. Kate replied, “It looks so much like Charlotte.”‘
After confirming that the image was indeed of William when he was younger he said, “Oh my goodness that looks just like Charlotte. It’s incredible, I haven’t seen that before.”
He also mentioned family friend and British baking extraordinaire Mary Berry, with whom Kate and William filmed a Christmas cooking TV special with late last year saying, “Well done you that’s a lot of hard work. Mary Berry would be very impressed right now. Incredible,” he told the talented baker.
