Prince William Says Dinner Time Can Be Difficult With Royal Children—And it Goes Better if They Get Their Way

Prince William has admitted dinner time with the children can be a struggle, and hinted the young royals sometimes get their way with food.

The Duke of Cambridge told a charity chef how meals go very well when the kids get something they love, but if he and Kate lay down the law then "that's another ball game."

The prince, 37, had a video chat with Charlie Farrally who cooks for the PEEK Project, which has made hundreds of meals for children in Glasgow during the coronavirus pandemic.

Farrally said of his work: "It's certainly taken the pressure off parents, for sure. You'll know yourself, the hardest time is dinnertime."

The prince replied: "Yeah. It depends on what's on the table though Charlie, isn't it? And that's the thing.

"If parents put something on that the children love, dinnertime goes very well.
"But if you put something on the table they don't want to do, that's another ball game."

Kate Middleton has revealed some of Prince George and Princess Charlotte's favorite foods in the past, including cheesy pasta, pizza and olives.

But they do also like their fruit and vegetables, which they grow themselves at their Norfolk retreat Anmer Hall.

In January, Kate revealed her three children love beetroot, telling a trainee chef in January: "Mine love it."

And the love goes back some way as she told celebrity chef Mary Berry how Louis was fond of the vegetable in December 2018.

She said of their home grown foods: "We've got carrots, beans, beetroot – a massive favorite. Louis absolutely loves beetroot."

Farally told the Prince how on his busiest day ever he made 900 meals in a single day for hungry children.

He said: "The record we did, I think with one other actually, was about 900."

The duke looked astonished as he said: "Nine hundred meals in a day?"

Farally added: "It's possible."

William and Kate have been keeping busy while under lockdown at their Norfolk home, on Queen Elizabeth II's Sandringham Estate.

They have been making regular video calls to charities and clapping for carers on Thursday nights, which has become a weekly tradition during the pandemic in Britain.

Ahead of Princess Charlotte's fifth birthday in May they delivered food parcels to the vulnerable in Norfolk, with Kate capturing the moment on camera.

She then released the images to the public for Princess Charlotte's birthday.

When Prince Louis turned two she released some heartwarming images of him covered in paint after a craft session making rainbow pictures for care workers.
