Prince William makes cheeky joke about Kate’s cooking skills

Prince William made a cheeky joke about wife Kate’s cooking skills while the couple were at an event in Barnsley.

Prince William and Kate Middleton were all smiles yesterday while they visited a Centrepoint hostel in Barnsley.

With three little ones running around at home, you’d think Kate and William might be a little sleep deprived, especially now Prince Louis is getting cheekier if the latest royal portrait is anything to go by…

But despite this, the couple were on top form and were very chatty with the young people who are helped by the homelessness charity Centrepoint.

The charity is very close to William’s heart as his mother Princess Diana was a royal patron and it was one of the first charities he adopted in 2005. The father-of-three was clearly at ease during his official visit and took the opportunity to tease Kate about her cooking skills, or more precisely he bread cutting techniquE.

Kate and William were helping to prepare lunch for some of the young people that use the charity’s hostel in Barnsley.

While William overlooked the heating up of Omero’s red pepper and chorizo soup, Kate was in charge of cutting the fresh bread, which would be used to mop up any remnants of the soup!

The soup is part of the Big Broth project, which raises money for Centrepoint. It was the winning entry to a contest to decide a soup and it is now on sale at Waitrose and Ocado.

As everyone sat down to eat Kate is reported to have said: ‘Don’t look at how evenly I cut it.’

William carried through a try with bowls of soup on and said: ‘I’m doing my balancing the soup act. Sorry to keep you waiting for your lunch — we’ve been talking too much as usual.’

Clearly feeling a little conscious about her sliced bread Kate said: ‘I think I cut some rather big slices.’

William then helpfully joked: ‘Don’t be put off by the size of Catherine’s bread. They’re enough to wedge the door!’

How cheeky! We’d love to know what Kate said to William about that comment in the car journey back to London.
