Prince William jokes what ‘sealed the deal’ for him and Kate Middleton when they started dating

The Duke of Cambridge admitted that his wife has super patience

Even Prince Charming doesn’t give the best gifts all the time. During an appearance on BBC Radio 5 Live’s  That Peter Crouch Podcast ,  Prince William  revealed the worst present he’s ever given his wife  Kate Middleton . After hosts Peter Crouch, Chris Stark and Tom Fordyce discussed bad gifts, including a tree and anorak coat, William was asked, “Can you beat a worse present than that?” “I probably can,” the Duke responded. “I did get my wife a pair of binoculars once. She’s never let me forget that.”

“That was early on in the courtship that was. I think that sealed the deal, really,” William continued. “I wrapped them.” The dad of three stressed that they were “really nice” binoculars. He said, “I was trying to convince myself about it. I was like, ‘But these are really amazing, look how far you can see!’ She was looking at me going, ‘They’re binoculars, like what’s going on?’” “It didn’t go well,” William added. “Honestly I have no idea why I bought her a pair of binoculars.”


The 38-year-old royal, who appeared on the podcast in support of the Heads Up campaign, also opened up about his lockdown experience at home with Kate and their children— Prince George , seven,  Princess Charlotte , five, and  Prince Louis , two. “I found it pretty testing. I’m not going to lie,” William confessed. “Trying to keep the children engaged and interested in some sort of work. It’s been an interesting few months.”

Homeschooling his young kids was an eye-opening experience for the future King. As for what he learned? William admitted, “Probably that my patience is a lot shorter than I thought it was. That’s probably been the biggest eye-opener for me, and that my wife has super patience.”

The Duke also realized that he and his wife are good at tag teaming. He explained, “Basically we’re a good sort of team tag session where I come in and have a chat with the children and try to get them to do stuff, and then hand over to Catherine when frankly everything has gone wrong.”
